Risks and challenges
We are ecstatic to celebrate a new Annual Pow Wow event with the Public and the Native American community once this project is successfully funded at $45,000 ...The real work will begin! So for now, we are going to conduct our efforts in Phases.
Phase I: Removal of the asphalt surface and replace with an appropriate drainage system (to prevent any excess water build-up).
Phase II: Lay an astro turf (rubberized) underlying surface
Phase II: Have a dirt topper. Which will allow us to connect with Mother Earth, while addressing the ales that our bodies use to endure.
Organize a Community Day where we engage with the community to properly and safely remove the current asphalt surface, and have it removed properly. Then Decide between 2 viable quotes (from experienced Vendors) who would haul the old debris away, create a drainage system to manage all water seepage, and properly cover dance circle surface with astro turf (rubberized) material, and get the dirt topper evenly placed...before the next cultural event in 2013.
Expensive project! The challenge with organizing the community to get this accomplished places safety risks foremost. So it's best to rely on a professional, whose services comes with a warranty to cover any material defects. And this is why we chose to get professionals to help us get this done correctly!

Select the appropriate Vendor with the best warranted services for their work, along with employing knowledgeable Volunteers to oversee the project. In addition, we will implement a Project Team that will manage this project from beginning...to the end of process...and then we will Celebrate ALL who have contributed to this great work!
