Saturday the 13th - be there
« on: December 07, 2008, 09:41:33 PM »
Just a reminder that this coming Saturday we're looking for a large turnout to make the final phase of trails at Boyette a reality.

We plan to be there from 8:30 to 4:30.  Come and play all day, or as much time as you can give.  It all comes together to make the difference - with the more folks that show up - the sooner the trails get opened.

We have tools and equipment available so bring yourselves, gloves, hydration and a fun working attitude to join with the other 16 of your fellow riders who already have plans to be there.

We'll break up into groups, and with the luck of a large turnout, then we can forge ahead with some serious progress on getting this task done.

Planned are hard/easier options; terrain like we haven't seen on our other trails; couple of bailouts if you may find yourself in over your head. That truly makes it a trail for just about everyone to enjoy.

The sooner it's done, the sooner we all get to enjoy it.

Please RSVP by noon Friday so lunch can be planned.

Thanks,
Garry

Do you need me to bring an old pick up truck to be used as personnel transport?

That might be a good idea.  I'll let you know as we get closer.  (19 so far; the more the faster the work goes.)

Hey Garry,

If there is some light duty work that can be done my Wife would like to join. She has been having some issues with her Back lately but wants to help. What do you think?

There will be light duty as well.  Trimming a path so the shovel and pick crew has room to swing, small roots and vines often get in the way, plus we can always use a handful of folks to trim overgrowth from the existing trails.

We leave the parking lot at 8:30am. Correct?

We're aiming for around there.  Usually takes a few minutes to get organized and roll.

Great. See ya there. I'll have my truck too, if needed.
