Non scheduled workdays at Alafia
« on: May 05, 2008, 07:48:47 AM »
I know there is work getting done on weekends other than the first Saturday. How does one go about getting involved? I'm talking about work other than the adopt-a-trail. I've seen some major changes done and want to get involved more than the couple of workdays that I've done so far. I tried to email Art on it before, maybe it didn't go through. I'll try that again today. Anyway, I'm a working stiff all week and the occasional weekend, but want to get more involved and get some more hard trails.

There are a group of riders who are trying to maintain Gatorback with more than just the monthly workdays. Its pretty sporadic right now, but I think we're going to be there this Thursday (5/8) from 6PM to 8PM. Our goal for the evening is shoring up the shoulders where the planks have fallen away. We'll likely be doing some general trimming, as well.

Saturday mornings aren't good for me at all, so I'm hoping to find other times to get work done at Alafia.

Who is this group and why hasn't anything been posted on it? Have they coordinated with Art? I sent Art and email about organizing another Gatorback workday, but haven't gotten a response back. There isn't any point in doing anything if it just gonna have to be redone, so make sure you guys are going through the proper channels on this.

Its the group that coordinated with Art to have the last Gatorback work-day to re-open the trail. No adding or changing any TTFs, just doing maintenance on eroded areas and trimming up the face-slappers. Basically a random collection of people from here and MTBR

I've been away from my computer for a couple days.The only emails I have seen are from Jason and Skippy I responded a little while ago, just give me a call at AJ's 813-685-2453, Thanks. I will probably be at Alafia for a few hours on Thursday morning before I have to go to Orlando to set up the coarse for the Muddy Buddy race at Disney. Know one has been doing any work on Gatorback but me. I would love to have people work on the trail BUT KNOWONE can go out there on there on without permission. If anyone is caught working on the trail with any tools the result if caught  by rangers will not be good. As of right now there isn't any work being done   on Gatorback by anyone except with me Thurs morning. We can't have people going out there and doing what they want. So far I have not given anyone permission to do anything out there so if you have something planned please cancel it until you talk to me.
Thanks Art

One last thing. I do want to set up something so people can go out to do maintenance and even  built trails after we mark some new stuff, but we need to know they know what to do and how to do it the RIGHT WAY.  So far I have 2 people  who have permission to go out there (Chiselchest and Ellsrider). If this is something you would like to do email me at northbkr@gmail.com and include your phone # so I can talk to you because it takes me forever to type.
Thanks Art

It's a race series thats going around the country. 2 people on a team, you start together, one runs , the other rides a bike. When you get to the first of four obstacles the person on the bike leaves his bike, does the obstacle and starts running.When his team mate gets there he or she does the obstacle hopes on the bike and goes to the next one. You leap frog each other till you get to the end. A MUD PITTTTT thats like Quicksand. There is a cargo net over it , so you and your team mate have to crawl thru the mud to the finish line. They had over 1,000 teams last year. Orlando was the smallest event. For more info google muddy buddy.
