Island Lake Trail Day - April 26, 10 AM (Sunday)

Postby otherdave » April 8th, 2009, 1:37 pm

We have a scheduled trail day at Island Lake on Sunday April 26th. We will be meeting at 10 AM at the Trailhead parking lot by the water pump (well head). The MMBA Metro South trailer "trailday in a box" will be on hand. It's stocked with lots of tools and a grill for making lunch. But, sorry kids, we haven't figured out where to install the kegerator yet... ;-)

We will be sending crews out to work on face slappers, pizza cutters, and a few persistent mud areas. Also will be following up on the new bench cut and shingling the kiosk. We are planning to have a follow up day in May to take another run at face slappers. The trailer is stocked with many tools, but to be on the safe side (should we have a large turnout) please toss a shovel or loppers in your car/truck just in case.

If you've never done a trail day before, this is a great time to start! We'll provide instruction and you'll be a part of maintaining this great and popular trail. Lunch will be provided by the Metro South chapter. Please bring plenty of water, gloves, and we recommend long pants. A full post on what to expect is here: http://mmba.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=12747

We have an amazing riding season in front of us... and this is the kickoff party! Nothing says spring like a trail day, so come on out and give us a hand!!!

Just a suggestion, but ILRA and BRA are very close to each other. Maybe it's not such a great idea having trail days for both on the same date.

(Sadly, I can't make either because I am previously committed to that date. Oh well, there will be another...)
The opinions expressed are not necessarily those of the MMBA, or its membership, but they SHOULD BE!

Different chapters...Different schedules and planning. the MS chapter had other events and workdays planned already. Since our chapter has a larger number of trails and events we can't always fit around a different chapter's schedule.

I'll help out with face slapper duty. Will there be burgers/dogs of the veggie persuasion?
Chocolate is the answer. The question is pretty much irrelevant.

Looking like I will be able to make this too. It'll be my first trail day, but I'll try to stay out of the way and do as I'm told. :)

Do I need to bring food for the grill??

No, feeding volunteers is the least we can do, but if you have any special dietary requirements feel free to bring food to grill.

I've got veggie burgers for the Take a Kid/Adult Mtn Biking event saturday and assume there will be enough for the Trail Day at Island Lake. If not, I'll get some more Sunday morning. Please let me know Sunday morning at the Trailhead if you eat veggie burgers.

Rain or shine?

Yep, rain or shine!

Most of the work to be done is lopping and trimming, so while we're hoping for clear skys, we're prepared to work if its a little wet out. Worth bringing some wet weather gear, but come on out!

Thanks everybody! 10 AM Sunday at the ILRA trailhead.

Fingers crossed, but radar looks like the storm system is heading north of us for the day. :-D
