    Huntsville Work Party September 10

    To prepare for the September 25th race:

    September 10th

    I will be onsite by 7:30. I will start who-ever is there at 8:00 walking the trails in certain areas with hand and long handle clippers to move the plants back at least a foot from the edge of the established trail bed. Some work will be done with rakes and spade shovels to groom certain sandy turns and bridge approaches. I will return to the nature center at 9:00 to pick up late arrivals. You will work no more than 5 hours. I plan to have coolers with cold drinks and a larger coaches cooler with gatorade/powerade to fill camelbacks. I will try to arrange with the park to waive the 3.00 entry fee for your volunteer hours.

    When arriving at the park, go in to the office and create/update your volunteer sheet in the book. Volunteer hours help the park get state grants. I will sign paydirt forms that day.



    I have one wash out to fill but hope to have it taken care of prior to this work day. Easy money for pay dirt folks.

    September 17th

    Real easy day. Final fine tuning and putting up some signs. With the rate of dead fall in the park, we may have to move something.

    Come out and see the new "turnpike", bridge Number 1, and reroute around one of the dreaded sections of the trail.


    Thanks everyone.

    Hey Jim,
    I'll try and make the work party. The trails are in pretty good shape. I like the new work that has been done, except I crashed on that first little bridge trying to scoot by the side of it.

    The shelter area looks bad, will it be open for the race? I hope it's open by November for the NWCC trip up there.

    Mel,
    E-mail me.
    If by shelters, you mean the campsites, they are in a project to update them all so half of them will be shut down for a few months. I can try to get the project time line for you on that (driven by TXDoT).

    Also, which bridge? Do you mean the area that is filled in with gravel and crushed material at the first right turn?
