Saturday 9/12 trail workday at Jake & Bull Mtn

Hello! This is a reminder about this coming Saturday’s trail workday.
If you haven’t yet come out this year, please consider joining us on Saturday. Meeting place is different !!!!

PLEASE NOTE: There is a 40% chance of rain this Saturday. But it’ll be only in the high 70’s!!! Please – – RSVP so I can contact you if I have to cancel.

Mountain bikers – for every workday you attend, you get $25 off your Fool’s Gold registration fee – up to $75 off!!! This coming Saturday is your last opportunity. Thanks to Lisa Randall for her generosity in offering this discount to you.

Trail volunteers – I’ll be drawing again for several winners to select from the prize table. There is a nice Coca-Cola decorative mirror that will be given away at the November workday. Volunteers receive 1 ticket for that drawing for each workday they attend. The more times you come help out, the more tickets you receive.

For those CTHA members who can’t get out on the trail to do physical work, please then join me by volunteering to work at the September 19 Fool’s Gold event. Lisa is offering us $100 for each CTHA member who volunteers!! This is a great way for you to contribute to the trails as these $s go into the Jake & Bull Mtn trail fund.

We will meet this Saturday at 9:00 at the intersection of FS77 and FS28-1 (the old game check station location) for sign in and safety talk. Then it’s off to the work site for 4 hours or so. We will be driving down FS77-A to the Lance Creek trail to brush back overgrowth. If anyone wants to bring their horse and ride the blue/Black Branch Trail and do brushing back there, please let me know so I can put you in touch with one another.

We will have sausage, onions, taters, chips, water and sodas for lunch.

WHEN: Saturday 9/12 9:00
WHERE: the intersection of FS77 and FS28-1 (the old game check station location)
WHAT TO BRING: boots, bug spray, gloves, something to carry water in/with, helmet (or hard hat will be provided), loppers or sling blade or weedeater, Epi-Pen, cooling neck wrap if you have one, chair for lunchtime
WHAT IS PROVIDED: water, lunch, tools

WORK TO BE DONE: brushing back overgrowth (bring your weedeater with extra cord if you want), whatever else is identified as a need

PLEASE – – – RSVP by Friday morning so I know you are coming. This helps us know how much lunch to provide AND I can notify you if plans need to change.

Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.
