Regular Thursday Afternoon Trail work CANCELLED
« on: November 05, 2013, 06:29:02 PM »
I will be resuming a regular Thursday afternoon Trail building sessions beginning this Thursday November 7th.  Start time is 1pm and we will work a couple of hours.  We will be concentrating on volunteer hours on new trails.  I will have tools.  Any questions please feel free to ask.

Trail work is on thursday at 1pm.  We will likely be doing detailed finish work on two new trails.  I have not ridden new trails yet so i may try to get there a little early to see how they ride.

I rode both on Sunday.  The trail built Sat is in more finished condition than the one built Sunday.  Both are still somewhat soft and have bumpsots in them that could possibly be smoothed.

HMBA/SWW has two nice garden rakes, but they are too long to fit in the blue toolbox.  I have them at home.  We'll find a way to secure them there.

Along with AL's Thursday early afternoon work session, I will begin a late afternoon session beginning at 4:00PM and will run till about 5:30PM or dark.  We'll continue on various projects with the new trails.  We have plenty of tools, so just bring gloves and wear sturdy shoes.  Maybe bug spray, if the weather stays somewhat warm.  They were thick this afternoon.

Trail work is on for Thursday 21st 1pm start.  We will continue to work on two new hill climbs.  Detail oriented finnish work. I will have tools.
No previous trail work experience needed.  If it is raining and trail is too wet i will post before noon if cancelled. 
For next week there will be no trail work on Thanksgiving.  Likely will move session to tuesday 11/26.  I will confirm this later.

With rain chances Thursday anywhere from 30 to 90% trail work this week will be a game time decision.
