The Sam project is finally in place at the Brittany Hall of Fame at the National Bird Dog Museum. Here is a picture of the crew that was on hand to see this happen. Bill Norwell did a fabulous job operating the fork lift. Rick did some sanding on the base before the actual placement, it was a team effort by the Brittany supporters.
