In an effort to consolidate the photo's of the BCRR winter crew I am starting this thread. Rather than having multiple threads with similar subjects, we can post them all here.
 
Now, who are the Buckingham Boys?
 
Here they are working on the latest project. From left to right;
 
Jim, Fred, Marvin, Lester, Chuck and Ron L.
 
Of course our "local year rounders" help out occasionally as well  
 
(Those being, Peter, Mario, Russell, Ron A, Ron(3) and myself)

This is what they were working on. A new patio area outside the carpentry shop. No more having to drag the table saw across the gravel.

Wanted to add this photo as here it is seen where in the background they are prepping the area for the new wood working area just outside the wood shop.  In the front you can see the rough, very uneven gravel terrain where the table saw is...that being what they usually pull it through...not too easy.

Bobby,
  Actually, I bought the lumber and built the boardwalk across the yard. Not that it matters.

Wondering if this might have been Ron's great-grandfather?

Here Ron 3 is giving the sides of the flat bridge the weekend before, a coat of paint on its sides.  We have several angles to add to it still to cap off the sides both for structural and to dress it off.
