This year we're going to have a Hi-Lift Jack class on Saturday at roughly 3:30pm (or whenever people are back from the URE workday)!!! A Hi-Lift (or farm jack) is a valuable and versatile piece of recovery equipment that most of us have in or on our vehicles. Even if you don't have one you will eventually cross paths with one being used. This class will teach you how to SAFELY operate this useful but dangerous tool. Izzy (@Izzyandsue) will be our instructor. There is no sign up necessary for this class - just be at the barn at 3:30pm ready to learn. Location of the barn: The barn is near Troy and Albemarle just east of Lake Tillery There is no physical address to give for GPS but the directions are very simple and we have yet to get someone lost Google maps location: Google Maps Directions to the Monks barn are as follows. Hwy 49: From Hwy 49 turn south on Hwy 109 Keep going south past the outpost and Uwharrie Trailhead Turn right onto river road. Keep going south on river road for about 5 miles and there will be a ONSC sign with flags pointing towards the driveway to the barn. Hwy 24/27 From Hwy 24/27 turn north on River Road Continue for 1.8 miles untill you see the ONSC sign and flags pointing to the driveway of the barn.
