From Ken:

It's that time again to attack the trails of Morris Bridge,we did a fantastic job last month and I hope we can repeat it this month.

We have discovered some soft spots on the trail that we did bridge work on last month and we need to address this problem while the soil is still soft.  Also, we would like to put some shell on the stone on the usf trail and last but not least,we have a lot of trimming to do so please bring your bikes and small clippers if you have them.

We will need more people trimming than spreading stone so all should bring their bikes and we will figure out who gets to spread stone and shell and who gets to ride and clip in the parking lot.

We will meet at the usual place,the canoe launch at morris bridge and break up into work crews from there. Gloves,bugspray,drink and some kind of clippers if you have them,otherwise we will supply them.

Lunch will be served afterward.

Please rsvp Ken (at) SWAMPclub (dot) org    asap so I will have enough food and drink.

Thanks to all the others that helped out on saturday, We arrived a wee bit late but still managed to meet up with a few others and did some trimming on the hole in the wall side, and removed a downed tree near the end of gatorbait. Thanks for the food and the fun everyone.
