I know how to do the drywall but I have to work. I will pitch in for materials though for sure. It isn't too hard.. you just need a patch, drywall mud, and some time... especially since you will be tiling. Tiling is a little tricker cause you have to lay the cement down evenly... get the tiles flush and square... then you have to grout it afterwards... I hate grouting.

I am by no means a professional but I have done this in the past.

Just let me know and I will definitely pitch in.

As much as it looks like it was vandalism it very well not have been. You never know... When I go back this morning to pick my BBQ trailer I'm going to speak with Kurt and Scott so we can go look at the spot. Griff and I went to see it with Dave yesterday and after that Griff and I went back to look more. After further inspection we realized that there was not greenback only regular Sheetrock and it did not have the hard backing over the Sheetrock either. It may have been a vandal or it may have been an accident while moving around and a heel hitting the wall. Either way the org that rents the track is responsible par the contract signed by both parties when the track is rented. I DID see one person throw a paper towel on the floor Saturday and I asked him to ease pick it up. He looked at me like I was crazy and said he didn't know which paper towel on the floor was his, so I asked him to picke them all up. He did and I told him thanks because if the place is trashed then Ride Smart would be in trouble and I did not want that. If you guys really want to help Dave out I don't think him having to pay for the damage will kill him but people disrespecting the tracks and rules can kill Ride Smart quick. So, if it was an accident then there is no reason why you should not speak up now. This is your open opportunity make things right. Do the right thing and atleast speak up if you see this. Being a member at MSRH is very expensive and it does cost a lot of money to keep it going so the bathrooms are not a way for them to make money. Thanks Floyd and all the other Ride Smart peeps doing a great job!

Honestly typically I thought that you use wire netting over the sheetrock as well to bond the cement to... so I thought it looked strange as well..

I vote we take a collection at the Central meet to give to the place or help pay for supplies. I have used that track one time and don't have any skin in the game for this weekend but we should make it right.

Honestly I never understood why people mess up bathrooms to begin with.
Whomever it was accident or not, as other said man up, put your big boy pants on and make it right.

that's a thing to do. Glad we can make it right by fixing it. I have repaired a wall once. But it wasn't perfect. My friend that was "helping" me in the pits might know how. Ill ask him later if y'all don't find anyone

Can probably find someone to hire that knows what they're doing for sure at the same home depot you buy stuff from. Hit that one on 610 and calvacade i think.
Are you talking about "someone" IN or Out side Home Depot?

Many of us know how to fix dry wall, and put tiles on. Without representing any entity in particular, but just Us the riders, if anyone volunteers, i'll pick you up, go to Home depot to pick up the material, and take a trip to MSRH. And we come back some cold beer and dinner at some restaurant i know. Again, won't mention which restaurant, becuase this is not an act to patronize an entity, but take responsibily on our own hands.
I'm not much of a handyman, but I can try to help.
