Hello SVTR Members-
This Saturday 5/7 we will have our first real work party of the season. Things have been very wet up till now and we have been trying to stay off the trails until they had a chance to dry out a bit. We will meet at the Joy Brook trailhead at 9am and assign duties then head out from there. Bring your machines and trail tools. Plan on fixing waterbars and draining wet spots on the trails and clearing any trees and branches that fell during the winter. Some of us will remain at the trailhead and work on some trees there that need some attention.
There will be no work party on Sunday 5/8 (Mother’s Day). Happy mother’s day to all the moms out there.
The following Saturday 5/14 will be the club cookout. Again, we will meet at the Joy Brook trailhead at 9am. The cookout will start around noon. The club will provide hot dogs and buns. Bring a dish to share. Bring your own drinks (no alcohol please). We will be drawing the winner of the 2011 club membership and VASA membership during the cookout. Tickets may be purchased up until the drawing. Tickets are $5 ea. If the winner has already paid for their 2011 membership, the club will reimburse the winner. There will also be a 50/50 raffle. Tickets are $1 ea or 6 for $5.
Memberships will be available at the trailhead on both Saturdays. If you need to purchase your membership, please arrive as close to 9am as possible.
If trail conditions are good enough, we will open the trails for the season on Sat 5/14.
I hope to see you on the trails soon.
