Week 29 starts off with progress on the last major concrete pour - the backlot. It'll sure be nice not to be parking on gravel anymore. Prep is underway and forming should start right away this week:

A lot of concrete has been poured outside, but there's still quite a bit more to go. The new basketball court is in, and the stairs have been formed up. After that they'll move on to the rear sidewalks and then the back lot:
