Thumbs up Thank You!

I wanted to get online this morning and say THANKS!!!! to those who took the time this weekend to come help with Elbe! Our numbers were excellent and the work done was even better! I tallied up our numbers this morning from Saturday and we had 105 attend and 46 on Sunday! We beat last years first work party by doubling our numbers.

We filled up about three dumpsters full of trash coming off the trails and got our bridges cleaned off. A bridge approach was fixed so that no trucks passing over will fall through the old cordoroy (sp?) and the brush was cleared on a few trails. Sunday we put all our efforts on the Mainline trail (?) to fix a truck sinking hole.

Thank you! I loved seeing all the new faces and old faces out there helping us out and hopefully tonight Joe and I can sit down and go over when our next work party will be.

Again, thanks for coming out those who took time out of their weekend!


Joe's Better Half - Angie

Ok heres some from the work we all did on the Alder loop trail. Seems over the winter a few folks decided to create a wallow hole and then of course others created bypasses to get around the hole So now the hole is blocked , filled and barricades all around to show where the trail is. We used a whole bunch of cable to tie everything together and hopefully make it more work then its worth to remove. Not to mention cable is hard on a chainsaw Big thanks to all of those that stuck it out on sunday and helped get this project done. We might have to go back in and do a little more when things dry out a bit but it was a lot acomplished
