Rick,

I know the focus is on the Merrill trail at this point in time, but any idea when work will start on the Upper Mac trail? I will give any time I can (which is very limited in the fall due to soccer 4 nights a week) but I will give what I can.

Thanks.

1358 84th Ave
Zeeland Charter Township, MI 49464

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=1358+84t ... 49464&z=16

I think this is the proper address.

Hope to see you there.

Luckycharm and Kayak Pete, were you there today? Would be nice to put a name with a face, I know you guys have been itching to get his project started. We made a lot of progress today.

Yes, my name is Bryan. I drove the big green Dodge. Wearing the black Western Michigan sweatshirt. It was nice meeting you Rick, along with the rest of the team today.

I still can't believe the terrain right there in Zeeland. That's going to be an awesome little trail!
