Motor Pool Make-over

One of the most extensive and impressive changes over the last year has been the Motor Pool. Located just East of the main hangar, this small building was at one point nearly useless for vehicle work, it was so cluttered. It has taken a lot of hard work, but the guys in the motor pool, led by Bill Atchison, have turned the space into a proper vehicle maintenance facility. A lot of work is still ahead, but huge strides have been taken, even in the last few days! If you haven't seen the motor pool for a year or more, you have to stop by and see it! Even better, give Bill and the guys a helping hand to keep the vehicles going!
