Let us give thanks!
And let's give back while we enjoy the great outdoors..
We will be camping at the multi use equestrian area. There is potable water on site and restrooms, showers 0.15 mile in the family campground. A special thanks goes out to Dale Meyer for helping facilitate this arrangement.
FROM JAY GOULD
Lenny and I hiked the trail the morning of Nov 10 to scout out the "work" activity. The 2nd section of the 6.2 mile loop is closed, but about 3.2 miles on the first loop is open so we'll lop, pick up trash, and clean that section.
There's a short section of mud, but you can get past it without getting your feet wet. The trail is in good shape so the lopping is more to enhance than to restore the trail.
We will gather around 9:00 on Saturday at the pavilion parking lot and car pool to the trail head, which is about a 5 - 7 minute ride.
Trail workers bring your loppers / trimmers... Jay
Saturday group lunch at the pavilion. Kevin Dodd , Wes Calhoun, Sue Bunge, and Cathy Muckler are in charge of turkey and lunch! Potluck sides.. If you can, please bring your own cutlery, plate, cup.
For our Saturday lunch, we are asking for a $6.00 per person donation...feel free to donate more to SUPPORT OUR TRAIL MAINTENANCE EFFORTS..
FTA Chapter business meeting to follow!
Afternoon....on your own paddling, hiking, cycling, sun, fun, and fellowship! (we can hike on the equestrian trails in the park)
Traditional Sunday breakfast... Sue is bringing the eggs, hash browns and bread and butter!
At the trail head this morning 11/10 with Jay Gould..Maybe it was the bull that tore up the bridge that resulted in part of the loop being closed....
