The guys that jacked the roof were great. That hole janga thing in the middle was on one jack. With all the other jacks no big deal. But it did look rediculous. The hard part was when they took the pressure off of it. A lot of people had to grab things fast.
Here is fun time laps I did with my cell phone, it tips over at the one minute mark for a second

What was the reason for raising it as opposed to erecting it in the air?

We could only drive the lull on one side of the structure because of errosion control and the shoreland protection, DES. Because the structure is right on the 50 foot lake buffer. So we would have needed a crane to lift the beams on the far side and we could not get a crane in the area so we came up with the solution to build it low so the lull could reach the far side and then jack it. It also made everything much faster not needing ladders for everything.

This is about a week old, things are moving very fast now, the lake had ice out and we have less than a month till we open. I will post more frequently.

This is the template being created for the safety glass that will go over the bar. It is going to be epic, once all the rigging and brass can be seen under the glass.

Some more of the template. I know this stuff is boring but I find it pretty cool.

That will be one cool bar! One piece of glass? How thick? That can't be cheap...
