Well, after looking over the many tasks ahead of us in refurbishing our props, we have been looking for buildings we can work on that are small enough to move into the shop. That way, once Spring arrives, our work won’t be quite as daunting. It looks like our next project will be the saloon.
The saloon has been a good prop over the years, but it needs some help. Mother Nature has not been kind to her. The weather has aged it, and a couple of years ago a windstorm took it down. The cowboys were able to repair it to be functional again, but it is time to perform a face lift before the coming season. Bill Starkey and the folks at Heartland Public Shooting Park were kind enough to offer to move it into the shop for me and to pick up the repair supplies that are needed in order to bring it back to its original glory.
Here is a quick look at the saloon as it sits today, and hopefully soon you won’t be able to recognize it.
