Peter, James, Andrew and Rod Dickman working on the Girgare Sound Fence
It’s been an action packed couple of weeks. I’ve not updated because I’m too busy keeping up with the Dickmans! On 19 April I showed the designs and a model of the Girgarre Sound Fence to a group of townsfolk, and the Dickmans (Rod, Peter, Andrew and James) offered to do the main post-and-wires-and-paths work. ‘When do you think we can do it?’ I asked. Pause. ‘Next Wednesday?’ said Rod. And so it was that on Wednesday 26 April some old posts were removed, the old fence tied off, new posts were put in place and the special tuning system was wired up with 8 turnbuckles. More work has happened since, to be detailed in the next posts.

Well, after 18 days at sea and out of wifi range (or very, very expensive) much of the time, we are now enjoying the beach and lovely weather on Maui. Congratulations on getting the fence up. We hope to be home and come to the inaugural performance… Wallace and Irene.
Look forward to seeing you both when you return – I hope you can make it to the show too. Wallace your violin is very popular with everyone who visits the Supermarket! Safe travels
