Addison Oaks Trail Day 4/14/12

Postby utabintarbo » March 28th, 2012, 7:54 am

A Trail Day will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2012 at Addison Oaks County Park by the Clinton River Area Mountain Biking Association. Rain date will be the following Sunday, April 15.

A reroute of the Fall Line (Telemark) hill is planned, as well as general start-of-season trail clearing (depending on available manpower).

Participants should assemble at 9 AM at the Concession Stand, and sign safety waivers and get work assignments. Participants should bring sturdy shoes, water to drink, and be prepared for trail clearing (nipping and pruning brush) and benching work. A bike may be helpful for transport to the work area.

We are confirming free entry to the parking lot that day. Stay tuned.

If you have questions, please post up.

Thanks,

Bob Costello

Free entry for workers is confirmed.

The pass phrase is "klaatu barada nikto". Failure to use the pass phrase will likely result in the total annihilation of the planet. :shock:







OK. Not really. Just let them know you're there for the CRAMBA or MMBA work day. :D

Due to park worker availability and other factors, it's Saturday, rain or shine. The one exception will be lightning. Please dress appropriately.

Depending on the number of people available, it shouldn't take more than a few hours, and we'll have new trail to ride! :D

Thanks, Bob. It was a fun trail day. Definitely lots of hard work, so I'm gonna have to heal for a couple of days before I head back out. ;-)

The beatings and getting yelled at to work "harder, harder, faster, faster" didn't help. :-(
Oh well, the food was awesome.

I had sciatic pain afterward. Couldn't stretch it out, but the hot bath sure helped. :-) I'm guzzling water right now so I can enjoy my post-trail day beer.

I never made it to the beer. I slammed a bunch of water and went to bed around 10 cuz I was falling asleep on the couch. I figured the hydration would help me get better quality rest than the beer.
