Class: This bunch of hard working guys managed during our beautifully sunny 4 weeks to finish ahead of schedule. This allowed them to take a fieldtrip to Vancouver Island. Stephen Lawrence from Macdonald & Lawrence was kind enough to give an inspirational tour of their Cobble Hill facilities. The class also was able to tour the sit e of the Kinsol Trestle Bridge slated for restoration as part of the Trans Canada Trail.

Departing from our enthusiastic group are Bruce Wollison, Blair Duncanson and Chris Dabney. Good luck top you all. Stay in touch.
