Weekly Update

Posted by Lily Wilcock on August 21, 2018

All, this past week began to show the signs of student life. Shop got busy, we sold a bike-a-day (it felt like) and I think probably three or so B-a-Bs were started. It helped too that construction on Pennsylvania is finally completed—in fact, I got to witness sharrows were being striped and new “Share The Road” signs being installed. It was heartening!  Andy (Campus Rec IT) and Alana (Boss) came by on Wednesday to assess the IT/computer situation. More on that as it develops. Unfortunately, the very next day the Mac computer that we use for sign-in went on the fritz. It currently shuts down halfway through  booting up. Old pen and paper to the rescue! Not ideal but it gets the job done.


This week I’ll aim for 5 new shop builds for the sales floor, rough draft a schedule for the student workers (potentially including some morning shifts), and continue to feed the dumpster. I polled the student staff on morning shifts and they’re interested; the extra help would be safer for me and getting new staff better acquainted with the shop and repairs when it’s not open hours will only help. This week I’ll also get a staff guide on opening/closing procedures written up to help formalize that process for the current and future newbie staff.

Memberships: 8 for $240
