The members who showed up Sunday should be proud of them selves! Stuck with it and got all the tasks completed and then some. Unfortunately (with a few exceptions) I keep seeing the exact same faces weekend after weekend, not that I don't like the guys, BUT, where's every body else?
Members who have route sheet packets from original "bike only" (might make a spare or two for yourself), need to bring them this Sunday, if you are coming out. 73 degrees for a high!!! Meeting on ATV side 8:30'ish BRRRR. until further notice.
Keeping a low profile on horse side for now. Transfer routes, some short woods additions, enclosed trailer inventory, clean trail, etc. Meet on ATV side, park by trailer and let parking attendant who your with if asked. Always odds and ends to do. Need a "tech-head " to look at radios.
I am NOT gonna make it this weekend. Struggling with my rib injury from last weekend. It has been a rough week for me and I need to rest up and do no physical activity. I will be back for the remainder of work days until the EVENT is done.
Off the top of my head--- Brave soul to spray the "nest" behind pee-wee early in the a.m., tech-head for radios, alternate lines in tight areas and possible mucky spots, continue DR where needed, trim stakes, cut and bundle snow fence for easy transport. Transfers ribboned and set plans for Cedar Creek bridge crossing. More later.
Between this Sunday and event weekend, I'd like to gather the sweepers and section leaders, for an overview of the entire course including transfers. Bring the route sheets provided earlier, and I will have updated maps for all. We are trying to avoid any confusion for communication out in the field. If you are unfamiliar with property and have not been assigned a check point or other duties yet, contact Barry Miller, those positions need to be filled first. People who have been working the trail consistently, will be assigned important areas through out the course. We are not setting up major turns and road crossing til last minute, as this is open to public riding, and do not want to give away our routes. Getting materials out to hidden areas would do for a head start after some more trail work is finished. Nothing terribly difficult, just looking ahead at possible problem areas. This Saturday is no-go, BUT , Sunday--YES. 8:30 atv side ,park near club trailer. Can somebody post this on RCDR facey-book?
The members who helped for the enduro, our final clean-up day is this Sunday 9a.m., park on ATV side, by trailer. Low pressure, trail assessment, timber cutting areas, re-marking OHM trail for future use. Horse side (on quiet machinery) ,needs ALL orange arrows pulled, and any road/corner ribbon or fence picked up, and add warning signs.
I'm taking a break from going out til the timber cutting is done. I'm sure after they are done, there will be more open areas to explore, and possible sections for switchbacks. Will be talking about the effect of thinning at the next meeting. We can use it to our advantage for future trails. If someone is going out soon, please post some observations here, and try to be specific when describing a certain section, i.e. refer to original route sheets from atv side. REMEMBER-- Do not go on horse side for awhile!
