Hi all, hope you can join us for monthly club meeting Thursday night. With our season fast approaching, we are in need of help with trail repair, trimming, etc. Please let us know if/when you can help (weekdays and/or weekends) Also, Dot lost a gray trimmer earlier this year. It looks like this with the extending poles, but it’s gray. If anyone has found it, can you return it? Thanks!!
Thanks to all who recently donated a Saturday to cleaning our culverts and cleaning out drainage areas. So important to keep water off the trails. Your efforts were much appreciated!!https://photos.app.goo.gl/F4fi9X2yccVtcKWQAhttps://photos.app.goo.gl/QJWKAeTSxnu37AXe9https://photos.app.goo.gl/AAzCr4y541gemQJU8https://photos.app.goo.gl/2j253649hfQZeZPg6
Hi all ~ Dot and I spent all day yesterday cleaning out culverts and removing trees from the trails. We’re hoping for some help this coming Sat., 5/25 – looking to assemble some crews from 8 – 12. The 4/15 flooding left the trails a mess so we have a lot of work to do in these off months to prepare for next season. If you have any time during the week to help, that’s great too as Dot is out every day doing what she can to maintain the trails and what she accomplishes is a LOT. Thanks to you landowners who took down the trail markers and left them in a pile for us. That helped us a lot!! Thanks all!
Please join us on Thursday evening for our club meeting at the Clear. Come at 6p if you care to join others for dinner prior to the meeting. We’ll be looking for volunteers to attend the VAST workshop on Sat., 5/18 as well trail maintenance crews during these ‘off’ months. This recent flooding was brutal in spots. Remember, the work we do now helps better our bridges/trails for better riding in the winter.
Thank you to all who were able to attend and support our dinner last week. We had a great time, won lots of great prizes and had an opportunity to thank the landowner’s for allowing us usage of their property for riding.
We’d like to take an opportunity to thank these local businesses for their generosity in offering a door/raffle prize for our event (in no special order):
