    We worked on the turntable this weekend and made good progress. Many thanks to Kerry and Howie for keeping the progress on track (pun intended) this summer! We also want to thank all who helped us all through the process. From digging to pouring to sawing to building to cutting to welding to lifting to moving to moving cars out of the way to supporting us. We appreciate the WMSTR membership!
