Work begins on Naturist Legacy Park's new sun deck

One large late-season project still loomed before us — Naturist Legacy Park's new sun deck! It would be immense, measuring 12 feet wide by 60 feet long. Construction began in late September. My first task was to trim the existing splash deck to accommodate the footprint of the new sun deck. We then spent many hours spacing and leveling the concrete blocks upon which the sun deck would ultimately rest. As with other such building projects, getting the foundation just right was crucial. Various members helped me with assembling the beams and creating the framework that would support the deck. It fell to my wife and I to add the actual decking. Our routine would be the same over the course of several days. We would rise early, have breakfast and then buy as many 12-foot-long deck boards as our little truck could carry. I always hand picked the clearest and straightest boards that I could find, which sometimes necessitated visiting more than one retailer. After hauling our heavy load to the park from Winnipeg, we would begin the task of carefully spacing and then attaching the deck boards with screws. My recollection is that it took more than a thousand screws to finish the job!
