Trail Work @ Walnut Creek

All:

We will have a Walnut Wednesday Workday on May 8th from 5:30PM to 8:00PM.

We will meet in the gravel parking lot in front of the City of Austin Maintenance building on the west side of the park.

Please bring fluids, and any trail tools including loppers and hedge trimmers. We will either be doing some heavy trimming (and as time gets closer I will post the map and grid location where we will be working), or we will be working on some reroutes because of the new sidewalk/corridor construction.

Please post up if you can come so we can get an accurate headcount to expect. Thanks, Rich

    All:

    Sorry for the confusion and the miscommunication. We were out there and did get some work done. With the gravel parking lot closed, our traditional meeting place has been temporarily lost. From now on, we will use a SINGLUAR LOCATON in which to meet an begin all work events. Going forward, we will use the POOL PARKING LOT in front of the maintenance center as the meeting place for all workday events.

    I sincerely apologize to those volunteers that showed up and were willing to donate their time to improve WC. In the future we will make every effort to communicate across all the online channels to make sure information is up to date and accurate.

    In the future, I will also have my cell phone number attached to each workday event so that I can be contacted directly if there are any questions.

      Thanks Rich. Sounds like it was just a miscommunication .

    The meeting location posted was:

    "We will meet in the gravel parking lot in front of the City of Austin Maintenance building on the west side of the park"

    There was a group of 8 waiting at at this location.

      I have to admit I never read the whole announcement and just headed to the area where we normally meet up. I don't know who posted that locale, but it's sad you who made the attempt didn't get to work and sad that the 5 of us who met "at the wrong place" didn't get nearly as much accomplished as 13 could have. Hope it works out better for all the next time. :-)

    We were all in the parking lot at 5:30 and headed for the trails about 5:45. Don't know where you were, but we were pretty obvious with our tools and bright protective vests. We were in the lot near the pool where ARR always meets up for Sunday rides and the Mojoers meet for the Tuesday R&I, if that helps you for next time. Big Pig is planning more work for next Wednesday, so hopefully you can join us then.

    Showed up at 5:30 to go to work and waited around until 6:45 at the meeting location and who ever was going to meet us did not show up?

    So about 8 of us showed up tonight to do trail work and Rich was a no show. We waited for about an hour before we called it. Anyone know what happened to Rich

      Yeah not sure what was up with that. My fiance was riding and ran into Fred (the guy that drove over to where he though the trail work may have been) walking alone on Log Loops. Apparently he never found anyone working in that area.

    I will be there with my kid. He is a junior cat 3 and needs some paydirt.

    Did have a bike patrol scheduled, but it's canceled. I will be there, but may be a few minutes late if I can't get off earlier than my usual 5:30 quitting time. At least I'm close with my TCEQ office at I35 and Walnut Creek.
