February 2, 2016 – Groundhog Day
Two crew members from Tallon Roofing and Home Repair start work on repairing the Guild roof. Leaks have developed where the kitchen/bathrooms addition join the original building. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, work has begun on The Mousetrap set. There is still lots to do. Join the Stage Crew on Thursday nights.
The fly rail hasn’t looked this good in a long time. The arbors hold the weights that counter-balance the flies. The red weights are necessary to counter-balance the rope and pipe with nothing on the pipe. When lights, etc. are added to the pipe, weights are added to the arbor. When removing weights, the crew must leave the red weights in the arbors.
The vertical red handles that are parallel to the ropes are ropelocks or brakes. They must be lowered so that they are parallel to the floor before the fly can be raised or lowered. The red keeper rings are dropped over the ropelocks to prevent the fly from being accidentally lowered.
There’s always something to do at the Guild. Come on down and enjoy the fun.
By the way, the Groundhog saw his shadow.
