The  bleachers

Glad it went well and I'm sure it was a great accomplishment.  But I  would 
be a little concerned with the weight calculations.  When I divide  5,000 
by 25 I get 200.  And a lot of "average Americans" are over 200  pounds now.  
Now when we were all salivating over the new Corvairs in the  60s we 
weren't that heavy, but today.............?
Thanks for sharing the plans as well.  I think I'll add some steel in  the 
right places with the help of an engineer friend if I decide to build some  
(our church may need some bleachers).
Thanks for sharing.
