Lake Louise Winterstart - 2000 through 2004


A group of workers prepare to place some B-net. It's the end of a long day. Let's get it up and go home!
 

A pole and net cache
 

Cookie Monsters! Tying down an A-net base line with plywood cookies. Many hands make short work.

 

Drilling holes for cookies.
 

Peter really enjoys this!
 

The fine art of tying cookies. It helps to have good circulation.
 

November 2004. The Platter Base Willy Bag production centre run by Karl, Mary, Bruce, Dave, Christian, George, Lockie, Brian and many others.
 

There are never enough Willy Bags. Keep working, Mary, you ain't done yet!
 

The equipment dump and the production area are 200 yards apart so bladders and covers have to be dragged from one to the other.
 

The "airmen" filling bladders. If it looks like a cold day, that's because it was!
 

Stuffing Willy Bags. Christian (orange jacket) has come all the way from Germany to learn this art.
 

Mary demonstrates the fine art of lacing.
 

Smoko! Sheltered from the cold, Bruce enjoys a break from stuffing Willy Bags.
