Alafia workday Sep 5th
« on: August 27, 2009, 01:24:54 PM »
Ok gang, there is lots to be done. Gatorback is in need of some love, Shelly's loop, and Rollercoaster need some love as well, along with other parts of the trail. So lets get a nice group out there and get some of this stuff squared away. Please remember to RSVP to the trail boss so he know how much food and drinks to bring with him.
 
Art has been working out there this week. From my conversation earlier today with him he told me they fixed the big drop into Shelly's loop, and he has something really cool planned for the corner and climb on the backside. He is also gonna walk Gatorback and some other stuff and set up a game plan for getting stuff fixed up.
 
Also, depending on what we get done Saturday, and if there is enough interest, I might be persuaded to go out on Monday the 7th. So if you can't make Saturday or would like to help out Monday also, let me know.

[FM: to RSVP, send an email to trails (at) swampclub (dot) org]

I am there Saturday - as long as necessary. I will bring a pickaxe, shovel, machete, big loppers, and little scissors.

If possible I would like to be included in the rebuilding/discussion of Gatorback. I am going to PM this exact message to Art just in case he doesn't read this post.

I should be good for that Saturday as well. 
 
To compliment what Krunnch is bringing, I will bring a sewing kit, tweezers, and nail clippers (both toe nail and finger nail).

I think Krunnch ran all of them over with the Kona, then jumped on the Frankenbike and ran them over again.  :D

The drop into Shelly's Loop is fixed and is riding nice.  Some people will complain of course.  The climb in the back hasn't been fixed yet.  Definitely needs work.

I plan on being there but work has taken an unexpected course today and demands on my time has changed.  I'm 50/50 at best.

I am 50/50 as well...we might be doing a family trip to Animal Kingdom on Saturday.  I will know for sure later this week.  Time with the family trumps everything.
