The Maintenance crew is working on the cafe level in the Crafts III building. Here we see maintenance manager Randall Schultz and crew Dan Thompson preparing the winter season ‘heatsock’.

Note the crossbar mounted to the top of this very long tube of canvas. This crossbar holds a fan.
Brent Scott, harnessed for safety, is operating the winch that pulls the heat sock up to locate it center under the skylight.
Randall and Dan insert a hoolahoop into the bottom of the sock, so it will keep its shape.
The idea is that the fan is located right under the skylight where all
the [rising] warm air collects. This fan gently pushes the warm air down
into the heat sock and the warmth distributes into the cafe.
But there seems to be a mistake. ‘Oh NO’, the fan is working the wrong way and it’s pulling Randall up and away. YIKES!
