- Request for help May 20, 2019
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!Continue reading →
- Club meeting Thurs., 5/9 @ 7p May 6, 2019
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.Continue reading →
