Well, the field is well and truly rolled.

Yesterday, Friday, Al was there about 8:00 and rolled till mid afternoon, then Barry spelled him for the last little bit of runway #2. Greg rolled again last night.

Today, Saturday, Glen, Paul, john and myself did at least 2 full runs. Glen spent quite a while n the Harrier Hump, his pet project.

Greg told me he might get over tonight for yet another run at it.

So it's rolled. About as good as we can get it. We're not going to play snooker on the runways, but they are smoother.

Many thanks to everyone noted, and if someone who I didn't notice was in the seat, many thanks to you too.  In The Air Group Hug Lets Party Raa Raa Thank You Loyal Fans Smiley First

Final roll on both runways done tonight.
Finished a bit after dark.

Kind of reminded me of a couple summer jobs of my youth; on a machine on the farm dykes with the smell of diesel fumes under the machine lights.
Going by the roller hour meter we collectively rolled 18.2 hours in 2 days!
A few picture’s attached for the record.
