It's That Time Of Year Again...

Post by John S » Wed Nov 16, 2016 3:19 pm

Yup...it's time to step up and put something back into all those trails you've been riding this year!
Every fall, winter and spring the trails are at risk due to heavy rain or run off, and it can be devastating. The best way to prevent serious damage is to ride when it's wet out so you can see the best places to divert water flow.
So this Saturday a few of us will be running as many trails as we can while fixing up ditches and diversions as we go. It's a lot more fun and goes much faster if we have a big group or two....so please, instead of just reading this , step up and show up? Out of 100 people that look at this post, we are lucky and grateful to get one or two who are willing to step up. Will YOU be one of them?...we need a crew of about 5 or 6 ideally.
So puleeeese! Come out and help this Saturday? Grace lake at 9:00am...and bring a shovel, hoe or pick, chainsaw etc.
A side by side would be a bonus for carrying tools.
Post here if you are going to come....it may inspire others :thumbsup:

Count me in!
Don't have a mount for my chainsaw yet, but I'm going to try and strap it into my box - need to start getting some use out of it, looks too new and shiny ;)

Maybe next time Cliff, sounds good Jack and Derek. As to your saw Derek we will have a number already so if it is a pain no problem if you don't bring.
Main things to try and bring would be a shovel or mattock. See you guys on Saturday.
