Boyette Update as of 6/10
« on: June 10, 2009, 06:34:50 PM »
For those who may be looking to ride Boyette this week, bad news.

It appears the whole backside of Boyette has been closed, including sidewinder, swamp thing, ridgeline, gary's loop.

Still plenty of fun to be had, set expectations appropriately

We tried to close off the worst of the sections.  People moved the obstacles and rode them anyway - it got worse.  We tried to get a crew together last Saturday without disrupting the Alafia workday too.  The work was way more than 6 people could handle. We also discovered the rains had eroded the sides, downhills, uphills, and bottoms of Ridgeline to the point that it will either be dangerous, or detrimental to the trail to allow anyone to ride it.  Sidewinder and SWAMP Thing has standing water, rutted out clay from bikes that shouldn't have been on it, and Garry's Loop has erosion that will be the quickest of all of the damage to fix.

This Saturday we have a workday planned from 9-3.  Mostly to try and open the addition to Spider Berm, but to address some problem areas as well if we have enough people.
 ;)

Thanks!  We should have a good crew to get a couple of projects done I hope.

I'd like to help but I'm out. Have an ATM reconnect in Carrolwood first thing in the morning.
