Supernova still not super

For anyone who’s been following the Supernova saga, it came as good news this week that the Seattle Parks Department put a new ring on the popular piece of playground equipment at Greenwood Park.

So Bruce and his son checked it out on Thanksgiving morning and this is what they found:

While there is less of a tendency to “stick” at certain spots, it is no where near as free running as it was originally.  There is just too much friction.  My son was able to walk completely around on it (over the top) without it starting to turn at all.

Closer examination showed that 2 small wheel like parts with the Kompani logo on them had fallen out and were lying on the wood chips below.  (See attached picture).

The SuperNovas at other parks work fine.  Hopefully this one can be returned to its original smooth running operation…
