Where: Black Gap WMA
When: Show Up on Thursday afternoon March 1st. We will work Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
What: We will be building three Guzzlers. There are two old slick rock guzzlers that will be converted to our traditional guzzlers. We will reuse the tanks off the old guzzlers but everything else will be new. We will be constructing one completely new guzzler for a total of three guzzlers.
Accommodations: No nearby town and no bedrooms. Bring whatever you need to keep yourself comfortable: tents or motorhome or whatever.
Food: We will feed you.
Tools: We will have nearly everything. If you want you might bring a battery drill, plumbing tools, or whatever.
Heliquest will be bringing a helicopter from Albuquerque and we will get you up on the mountain. Pilot will be Earl Watters and they don’t get any better. We should be finished on Saturday afternoon so you can plan to drive home on Sunday.
You must be a member of TBS to participate in the work project. We will be prepared to enroll anyone who shows up and wants to work as a member
