Addison Pre-Race Trail Day - Aug. 28, 2010

Postby utabintarbo » August 23rd, 2010, 2:03 pm

Join us, one and all, to help get the trail ready for the Addison Oaks XC race! As the trail gnomes (Pete and Mark) have been doing yeoman's work keeping most of the trail tamed, I figure this will be light on the brute force work, and heavier on the light detailing. Even so, string trimmers, hand saws, loppers, and pruners will likely all find work out there.

We will assemble behind the maintenance building at 8:30. I will try to arrange transportation to move people to where they are most needed (mostly to the exact opposite side of the park :P).

Weather looks quite pleasant, so I hope to see all the usual suspects ;), plus even a few new faces.

Don't forget hedge trimmers and leaf rakes.
A lot of the trimmings have thorns, and raking them off the trail is required.

It should go pretty easy, plan to walk about 1/2 of the trail, less if we have enough to break out into 3 or more groups.

A big thanks to all who showed up: Pete, Mark, Kevin, Lanson, Dave, Nick, Pat, Erick, Katie, and especially Colin and Aaron. Y'all did a great job while I generally drove around in the aforementioned golf carts and goofed off. :D

Thanks again for a great job! :icon_thumleft:
