Organized by Jim Carroll

For this Cruise Night Jim had arranged for us to visit the mechanical shops at TRU
It was a great night for a picnic in the park as there was parking and no mosquitoes.

Line Up at TRU
The 1st shop we visited was the automotive
       

Each student has his or her own tool box

Various display boards
             
         

The 2nd shop to visit was the wood working
The 3rd shop to visit was the welding where they can teach high pressure welding for the oil patch
Our 4th stop was the plumbing

NO it is not a milking trough
but a demonstration table so they can show the various water hook ups
 and actually put it to work with water running.
The 5th shop to visit was to the Electrical Instrumentation Department
{Possibly the only school of this sort in the province}
A number of the courses are now being offer by the internet to smaller schools and this allows the teacher to handle more students.
It also helps the students as they can do some of the course from home
or their local school and helps them cut down on their individual costs for the various courses.
     
The following weekend they were going to have a yard sale to sell off some of the items they no longer have need of.
Not sure if anyone went back to buy.

With the official tour over so it was time to head to the local DQ
