Re: call for agenda items

Sounds like a job for the adair greens keeper if you ask me. So, i went to the HD and bought a 24x120 utility mat and some deck screws.  I cut a 4-5 inch strip and screwed it down to one of the steps. I quickly learned the mat needs to lay flat for awhile or get reverse-rolled as the edges wanted to lift up and needed to many screws. I also learned that i liked the smaller washers.

I'm not certain that this is ideal, but it's not costing much to try. Look for traction action as soon as the roll has relaxed.

It is good to do some problem solving and to then take action.  Thanks for the reply.

That might work, but I fear it would get mud on it to the point that
the "sandpaper" quality would be lost. Some type of metal 'grid' or
'strips', with a maybe 1/4" high 'edge' would be more durable and
provide better long-term unslipperinessosity. But I don't
know what might fit that bill.
