**CHANGED TO NEXT WEEKEND***

The rain has won out this weekend y'all, sorry.  The things I have to get done just can't be done in the rain, so I'm moving everything up to next weekend.

I realize this might cause many of you not to make it any longer, but don't feel bad.  It's not your fault.  I appreciate your willingness to help and very grateful all the same :)

I've decided to keep the updated schedule (Saturday to Sunday) so just com on by next Saturday whenever you feel like working.  We'll be working Sunday as well!

Again, thank you all for your willingness to serve.  I really do appreciate it from the bottom of my heart!

-Spicer


Every spring the Spicer's have their own real life Winter Wrap Up. It was suggested to me that y'all might want to help out. So here it is..... Who would like to help?

Rideshare here.

Details:
This is a real work day.  No fun and games until the work is done. 

You will need to bring work clothes as they will get dirty, torn up, and stained.

Here is the list of projects we will be doing…

Clearing brush, staining, cleaning windows and tile, mulching, trimming, spreading gravel, putting up fencing, and digging.

I will provide all tools, supplies, and food. Those who stay Saturday night I am limited on beds, so might want to bring a mat, pillow, and sleeping bag.

Schedule: (You can just come Sunday if you like)

Saturday will be hanging out and briefing, and a little work.  Plus we can watch the new episode if y'all want!

Sunday wakeup will be 8:00am.  I’ll have breakfast for you, then we head out to work at 9:00am.  We will break for lunch around 12:00 noon and work again till about 5 or 6.  I’ll feed you dinner around 6 and then we rest and relax.

Again this is a real working day not hanging out for fun (although that will happen a little).  Thanks a bunch!!!

    It was tough work, but that was half of what I came out for anyway. It was good to get out, talk with folks, and do some good honest work. Also I was glad to see so much progress made = ).

    • Josh T.

      I was only planning on going to the picnic, but if a rideshare is doing both I might consider if it's the difference between going to the picninc and not doing anything at all...

      April 5

  • TheBaraclough

    I think I will come to this! I really need to get out and I think some good old fashioned work would do me some good. Not entirely decided whether I'll come Saturday night or Sunday but I'll let you guys know.

    Apologies for the late response! If it causes any problems with logistics let me know and I will adjust if possible.

    April 4

    • Spicermedic

      Not too late a at all. See ya when you get here! Thanks!

  • Angela

    Not sure if I can make it with the date change. Will update my rsvp accordingly if I can make it out on sunday

    April 1, 2014

  • Asiel V.

    Is anyone going on Sunday? If so, I'd love to get in touch with you :)

    1 · March 29, 2014

  • Spicermedic

    Seeing that the rain is creeping up on Sunday as well. I think it will be best just to push the whole work thing off till next weekend. The things I need to get done just can't be done in the rain.

    Sorry guys. I know this means some of you can't make it any longer, but I can't do anything about rain.

    Thank y'all for your offer to help! Don't feel bad if you can't make it next week. Not your fault :)

    March 28, 2014

    • Edward R.

      You made the right call. I'll still be able to make it next weekend.

      March 28, 2014

    • Ariel "Tricks" P.

      I'm actually kind of glad this has been a terrible weekend for me with 3 back to back 10 work days and sun is my only day off now. Need it for resting.

      March 29, 2014

  • AppleJack

    To all those who have scheduling issues with this and the picnic.. The picnic is SATURDAY MORNING. Which means you can come by Saturday AFTERNOON-EVENING and hang out. The real work for this meetup isn't until SUNDAY MORNING. And therefore, does not interfere with said picnic. :D

    1 · March 28, 2014

    • Max S.

      The 10:00 starting time is probably confusing people.

      March 28, 2014

    • AppleJack

      which is why I posted this ^w^

      March 29, 2014

  • Josh T.

    The schedule change interferes with the picnic meetup next weekend.

    March 28, 2014

    • Harrison N.

      Yeah, I was thinking that...

      Could plan to come after the picnic since Saturday was planned to be lazy-ish anyway...

      March 28, 2014

    • AppleJack

      Josh, lots of meetups interfere with other meetups, and sometimes you just have to deal with it.

      2 · March 28, 2014

  • AppleJack

    Argh. I don't know my work schedule for next week quite yet so I dunno if I can make it. I was so looking forward to this too D:

    March 28, 2014

  • Alex

    Bugger. Full workload already next weekend

    March 28, 2014

  • Spicermedic

    How does everyone feel about working in the rain ;)

    I'll keep an eye on things and make a call Thursday. Stay tuned!

    3 · March 25, 2014

    • Edward R.

      Sounds like I'd better bring my poncho just in case.

      March 27, 2014

    • Phil L.

      Nah just a bathing suit lol

      March 27, 2014

  • Nick E.

    Shoot. Sorry captain I work Sundays :( I really wish I could help. Maybe next time.

    March 27, 2014

    • Spicermedic

      Hakuna Matata Nick. The weather just didn't work out for Saturday this time around. Not your fault.

      Thank you for your willingness to help! It is greatly appreciated :)

  • Bass Hooves (Chase G.

    This might be a problem for me since i work on sundays would it be ok to come on saturday to chill out with you guys and go home that night i dont know if work at 4 or 7 on sunday

    March 26, 2014

  • AppleJack

    I like this idea of the schedule change. What time would you like us to arrive on Saturday?

    March 26, 2014

    • Spicermedic

      Anytime after 10:00am. If you prefer you can come by Sunday as well. We'll be starting work Sunday morning. If the weather is Saturday afternoon I will do some work.

      March 26, 2014

    • AppleJack

      Aye aye captain! as long as I don't have work on Sunday, I shall be there! (and not square)

      March 26, 2014

  • Alex

    Bugger it. I now have games to ref this weekend. Oh well. Gotta make that paper

    March 26, 2014

    • Alex

      Schedule change is a wonderful thing. I can now come Saturday evening. Yay

      1 · March 26, 2014

  • Spicermedic

    PLEASE READ!!!
    I made changes and updated all the info.

    March 26, 2014

    • Harrison N.

      To make sure I understand this, am I correct to say we should NOT arrive Friday evening and should arrive Saturday morning?

      March 26, 2014

    • Spicermedic

      Correct. Show up Saturday now. The main work will be done on Sunday, but if weather clears up Saturday afternoon we can get some stuff done still

      March 26, 2014

  • Phil L.

    Just some things you should all should bring
    Work cloths you can get dirty and ruin
    Work shoes or boots
    Refillable water bottle
    Deodorant (we are gonna work up a sweat)
    Bathing suit and towel

    Bug spray (if needed) and gloves will be provided

    March 23, 2014

    • Spicermedic

      Don't forget sunblock too (just in case)

      March 24, 2014

    • Edward R.

      I'll be bringing my own gloves and protective goggles, so you don't have to worry about me.

      March 26, 2014

  • JFronz

    Also still looking for a ride if anybody is available to come get me?

    March 25, 2014

  • Bass Hooves (Chase G.

  • Spicermedic

    I moved things up one day due to rain.

    March 26, 2014

  • Bass Hooves (Chase G.

    So is this happening rain or shine

    March 25, 2014

  • Jaye V.

    Man, I don't think I'll be able to make it. This year is gonna be hard for me to join you guys in any weekend meet. Maybe next year

    March 25, 2014

  • Bass Hooves (Chase G.

    if its nice out will the pool be up and running for when we finish working or just the hot tub

    March 23, 2014

    • Spicermedic

      I'm going to try, but it might not happen. Part of winter wrap up is opening the pool and spa. The cold and snow has kept me from doing it sooner for you guys. This weekend it will happen, but might not be ready for swimming yet as the chemical levels won't be right for human skin. But I'll do my best :)

      March 24, 2014

  • Angela

    I will only be able to help out on Saturday.

    March 24, 2014

  • JFronz

    So I'm going to need a ride if anyone can get me I live in Fairfax about 20 from spicers

    March 23, 2014

  • Bass Hooves (Chase G.

    I think saturday night if he is up for it rave in the basement or on the pool dock

    March 22, 2014

  • AppleJack

    OH MY GOSH I ACTUALLY HAVE THIS WEEKEND FREE!!!! Well, minus Friday, but I might be able to swing getting there around 10 or 11 if anypony will be up. If not, I'll hurry down Saturday (and don't mind picking someone up on the way, as long as you're close enough to my route!)

    1 · March 22, 2014

  • Bass Hooves (Chase G.

    I work till 8 on friday would anyone be able to give me ride

    March 22, 2014

  • Tim "DJ H.

    You may want to force showers before the hot tub Spicer... I can't imagine the filters will like all that sweat and grime. At least a quick spray down.

    3 · March 4, 2014

  • Spicermedic

    To help with efficiency, I'm going to have multiple teams of 2 or 3 people. Start coming up with team names!

    March 6, 2014

  • AppleJack

    O3O I am SO there if I have work off! I'd love to help you out again Spicer! Especially with all that you've done (and do) for the DC bronies!

  • Timothy H.

    I can almost certainly go. Not sure if till sunday but definitely till sunday morning.

    March 13, 2014

  • Nicholas L.

    Sadly I can no longer go I have an important
    school project coming up. I have to work on a project in science class.
    :(

    March 10, 2014

    • Phil L.

      i know the feel, school, especially science, always gets in the way of my fun

      March 10, 2014

  • Bass Hooves (Chase G.

    I am just throwing this out there but if we want to get work done i say we leave phones inside i think we would get more work done that way

    March 7, 2014

  • Dan B.

    I can lift heavy things... but I would need a ride. Preferably after work from Medical Center on Friday returning Sunday, but any metro station whenever could work.

    March 7, 2014

  • The n.

    O guys if you have work gloves Bering them and a hat it will be hot that day

    March 7, 2014

  • Engineer B.

    Gee, that Saturday schedule seems cushy! Where's the "up at dawn" and "work till you can't see anymore"? :) I might have to duck out on some part of one of the days to take care of some apt/house-hunting things, but I'll make it as small of an interruption as possible. Looking forward to this!

    2 · March 4, 2014

  • Alex

    I don't suppose you'd need any help cooking. Cause I'd love an opportunity to use that crazy awesome kitchen of yours :-D

    May I please be the "Twilight Sparkle" here? But really...I'm 5,3, no muscle, week, and all that shiz. Someone needs to be her.

    March 3, 2014

    • Sarah Helen C.

      oh okayy

      March 4, 2014

    • Spicermedic

      I posted projects in the description above.

      As far as the Twilight Sparkle role goes, that responsibility falls on me. Sorry.

      There is plenty of work to be done and in many different areas of expertise. I'm sure you'll find something :)

      March 4, 2014

  • Spicermedic

    If you have any food allergies or restrictions please let me know so I can plan meals accordingly. Thanks!
