Torsk Work Weekend 6

October 20-22, 2000


This work weekend was a great success! We accomplished all we set out to do, and more. For a list of items, scroll down below the image links.

We had 48 people attending, some new and many old faces. It was a great time! A big thanks goes to everyone who came and worked their butts off. A special thanks goes to Scott Armstrong, our museum rep, for his time and efforts to support our work weekend. 

The pictures from the weekend are divided up by day, to keep the loading time down.

Take a look and see what we did !!
