Just a reminder we will be leaving the parking lot of RNP at 9am Saturday April 6 (except for those meeting us at the site).  We need all the trucks and/or trailers we can get to make this a one-trip pick up.  I have a hitch on the cargo van if someone has a trailer.

Please bring cordless drills and saws, claw hammers, pry bars, nail pullers (most important), ropes, tiedowns, chainsaws, shovels, and anything else you can think of that will aid in disassembly and uprooting of the wooden obstacles.  Please do not assume someone else will bring the tools.  I only have 1 of each.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Saturday April 13 we will be reassembling the wooden obstacles we delivered to the park last weekend.  I'm bringing my bike because I hope to have it done and be riding it by noon or shortly after.  Help is needed lifting and moving the sections into place.  If you can spare a few hours please lend a helping hand.  If you can think of a better place to position it other than where it is currently sitting, please bring it up Saturday morning.

Needed:
Corded or cordless drills
#2 phillips bits (I will bring the screws)
Sawzall to cut through nails
Extention cords
Chainsaws
Scrap 2x4 studs (any length) in case we come up short a piece or two

Thank you.

Trail grew over fast this spring.  Please come out help trim it. Saturday June 1 will be the first day of trimming.  Then again on June 8 and 9.  We are down to one mower.  We desperately need a second pushmower.  Must be self-propelled.  If you have one or can borrow one, please bring it out.  The job cannot be done with only one mower.  Weedwackers take approximately 3 times longer than a mower.

If we get enough people to help, it can be done in one day.  So please make it easy on everyone and spare some time. Please.

Items to bring:
-Mower
-Weedwacker
-Gas for your mower or weedwacker (you will use a lot more than you think)
-Lots of string for your weedwacker (you will use a lot more than you think and take extra out on trail with you)
-Loppers
-Water (hyration pack like a Camelbak is best)
-Lunch (mowing and weedwacking a trail works up an appetite very quickly)

Note to trail trimmers: DO NOT CUT OUT THE CANOPY.  No one wants to ride in the sun in July.  Cut a tunnel through the growth.  Trim the sides and the faces slappers.  Do not cut anything 1 foot over the average rider's head.  Thank you.

The entire Novice and Intermediate needs it.  I usually go down one side while John does the other side starting at the parking lot.  Whatever you can get done will help.  Let us know what you did so we can skip right to where you leave off.  Thx

DINO race has been cancelled.  So, we will be trimming on both Saturday and Sunday of this weekend.  Please help us so we can get it done as quickly as possible.  I know everyone wants to ride, but I do too.  So please help.
Tools needed listed above.
Thanks

Thanks to Patty, Steph, and John, we got a lot of the trimming knocked out.  There is still a days worth left though.  Don't make these people do it all.  I know more people ride the trail than just them. Please meet in the parking lot Sunday June 1 at 9am with:

-Weedwacker
-Gas for your weedwacker (some way to take it out on trail with you. You will use a lot more than you think)
-Lots of string for your weedwacker (you will use a lot more than you think and take extra out on trail with you)
-Loppers
-Water (hyration pack like a Camelbak is best)
-Lunch (weedwacking trail works up an appetite very quickly)

Thanks to Patty, Steph, John, Ryan, and Brian, we got it done in one weekend.  John and I had to put in two 10 hour days, but we got it done.  It's in great shape right now.  Next time you are riding, please think about all the hard work that went into making the trail nice for you.  Then please consider helping these people out next trimming session. 10 hr days is too much.  Please enjoy the trail for now, but keep the folks mentioned above in mind.

whodey1937,

Thanks for your interest in helping.  We can always use it.  The best way to "sign up" is to watch this thread.  This is our primary outlet for announcing trail work as you can see in previous posts.

We will be preparing for the 2013 Rangeline Rampage Time Trial soon.
http://www.hmba.org/smf/index.php?topic=11156.0
We need volunteers for this event.  PM me if you can help on that weekend.

We also need to finish the banked turn/teeter totter in the skills area.  A DINO race is this Saturday in French Lick, so no planned work at RNP this weekend.  The following weekend the Park is closed for a special event.  Starting June 30th we will be hitting it hard to prepare for the race.  Keep an eye on this thread in case something comes up between now and then.

Thanks in advance for your help.
