We decided that a priority for the field was a dry flat area outside where we could eat and relax. A 4 x 3 meter deck was the decision and the task was undertaken with gusto and a little help for my mate mark. Well actually a lot of help and expertise so I remain in serious debit in the help stakes.

All the remaining phases went smoothly and rapidly.
