Okay, calling all hands on deck!  Sounds too Navy.  Over the hills and deep in the trenches...maybe too Army.  Okay let's blow this up!  Yes, that sounds like the Marine Corps.

Past President and Vietnam Veteran (U.S. Navy Seabee) Rick Clark needs all the troops to report in to duty and give our Marines a leg up.  That's right we will be meeting at the Braille Institute by 7:30AM to carpool up to Camp Talega.  Camp Talega is about as far North on base as you can go...basically up to South San Clemente.  It is important that all interested parties commit to this project by emailing Brett Morey at bretthmorey@gmail.com or Rick Clark at rick_clark@san.rr.com no later than March 15th so we can provide names to the Base Commander.
 
We will be painting, assembling new picnic tables, putting together the volleyball courts and assembling new weights just to name a few of the projects.  Call or text Brett Morey 858-602-2532 with any additional questions.  We are hoping to have as many Rotaractors help as possible as this project is 18 years age or over.  Sign-up online at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1m2O0fIE-u24njc55JTKpBbV6hLQZ3BPBSYhBCADTFcU/edit?usp=sharing
 
FAQ’s.
1.- Need the sign-up list by March 15.  We will be sending the list to Camp Pendleton.
2.- Time and place to meet.  We will have a place in La Jolla (maybe Braille Institute) for everyone to meet at 7:30 AM, then will caravan up.  Some of us will go up earlier.
3.- Approximate time spent painting and assembling etc. ( for example: from 8:00 to 3:00PM) We will shoot for 8:00 - 3:30 PM finish.
4.- Do we need to bring “tools” if yes, such as a screwdrivers, allen wrench, socket wrench? We will have all tools, brushes, etc. on site.
5.- What is the clothes attire. (type of clothes, for example work boots, jeans and t-shirt, or are short pants allowed? Work clothes, most of the work will be painting. Shorts are fine, as long as you've got good looking legs!.
6.- Type of ID, to access the camp Make, model and color of car(s) that will be entering.  Drivers' licenses. Insurance and registration for each car.  Seat belts for each passenger.  We intend to have some small cards printed, identifying each car to the guard for the project.
7.- Recovery price for food & drinks? Or is it bring your own?  No charge for anything.  We will have some donuts and coffee in the morning and our community service committee is paying for pizza or Subways for lunch.
