The first few photos show where we'll be working, some of the cars and equipment we'll use, and the leftovers of the first car we used to learn the tools and techniques.
Then we have a series showing how we simulate collisions. The instructor has enough experience to guide the machine operator in creating realistic damage. That series ends with the gutted car.
There is a shot of the end of a 2 vehicle pile up where we did the full extrication in under 20 minutes.
Finally, there is a shot of how some accidents start (that tie bolted across the wheel wells of a half ton is a makeshift 5th wheel hitch) and a pile of cars representing about half of the vehicles we destroyed.
But there is a problem: the advertising and promotion doesn't seem out of line with similar events, yet last night's recital had only about a dozen people over and above residency participants. There will be a few more this evening by virtue of the fact that we're taking the music to the audience for a free park concert. And tomorrow's formal concert will have an audience mostly of friends and relatives of the players. Is this music really that irrelevant or do we need to find different ways to get people out to try it?
(also, while no fan of 'the beeb', I have been known to get overexcited at a concert 😉)
I used to work as a programmer (started as a hobby) and have several hobbies: boat-building, fishing, electronics projects, shortwave radio.
I played in the Saskatoon Brass Band from 1986 to 2011. The last several years was on baritone, but I've also played cornet, horn, bass (tuba) and flugelhorn. Now I have to try to replace that with something around here.
I read a couple of hundred books a year: science fiction, mysteries, philosophy, various sciences, history, biographies.
I run 10-12 km each week, swim 6-10 km each week, and row 5-25 km each week as long as there is open water. In the winter, I go snowshoeing and hope to get started with cross-country skiing and ice fishing.
