We are planning to paint the metal and replace the wood and bolts. Some of the front cross bars are bent from (I assume) the skate boarders doing tricks on them. We also plan on adding something to prevent the boarders from doing this in the future.

Thank you.

I met with Harry, Hector and Beto today. We are going to get cost estimates for wood, metal and that plastic wood. We will see which material makes the most sense from a cost, comfort and maintenance perspective.

Hello All, we have received some pricing quotes for the materials and it looks like it will be between $800 to $1400 MXN per bench depending on what is required. Since the wood is the most expensive item we are going to salvage what we can as some of the slats are still good (just need to be sanded and stained).

SOOOOO...….now I need to start collecting the pledges. I'm thinking a few ways to collect.

1) People can drop it off at my house. I live 2 doors east of the LCS on 16th de Septiembre.

2) I can take the funds via PayPal. I will send my account info to those who want to do it that way.

3) I can pick it up from those who can't get out.

Please send me a PM or e-mail (bhowe11@hotmail.com) telling me how you would like to get me the funds.

Thanks all!!!!!

Sure, it all converts into pesos when I withdraw it. Thanks. My PayPal is the same as my e-mail address.

BTW Everyone...…….we have $33,500 in pledges so far and need quite a bit more to do ALL the benches so if you can contribute please help us. We will fix as many benches as we can with the funds we raise. We will focus on the ones that need it most, first.

Order some barbeque from Juan Mata who is delivering the orders Sunday from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM across from Super Lake. Cbob is picking up my donation at 9:30. Juan has pulled pork, brisket, I think huge ham hocks and ribs. He’ll also do sandwiches. You can order brisket fatty or lean.

UPDATE: I have collected $28,800 pesos of the $35,800 pesos pledged and have plans in place to collect the remaining.

The muni workers under Harry/Hector's direction will start removing broken wooden slats, repairing any bent metal crossbeams and painting the metal legs. The existing/replacement wooden slats will be stained and sealed. We will only give the money directly to the material suppliers as needed.

Jaja......well it isn't done yet. Now it is up to the Muni workers. I could never have been a doctor because I have no patience and I'm sure moving at the "speed of Mexico" is going to drive me crazy.
