“Just to dig that hole was over $50,000,” Lewandowski said. “Engineering was over $12,000, landfill was $8,000 because none of that garbage can go back into the hole. It all had to be sent to Otero-Greentree (Regional Landfill). The hauling cost, three of the haulers, we used Nelson, Southwest and Greentree, that was over $10,000 in hauling. Mesa Verde over $20,000 of digging and the equipment.”

In a distribution plan, Lewandowski recommended giving FUEL Industries and Light Box 52 games from 14 different games titles.
