We kicked Butt!!

A Huge Crew showed up tonight to clean up the N. Loop, at least 10 people.
And please show up Thursday night, July 30th @ Plum Creek, 6 p.m.
Above photo is Kyia and Ben Doom. The Snapper Brush mower is the mower we bought with monies from last years raffles and food donations at the two bike events we put on in Sept. We hope to buy more equipment this year, it will come in hand when we have 10 people show up for work. It truly makes a difference in cleaning the trail v.s. a lawn mower.
Ben cut out a lot of over hanging branches and some down trees.
Brian and Broman, "are you really working"?

Look at the cans around this guy!

A hard working duo, Conner and Charlie!

Better than riding the trail?

Even Max the Wonder Dog helped take down brush!
Thanks again!
Sorry about the terrible images, my camera has seen better days.

.3 mile trail addition!

The new section of single track on the N. Loop. It's a little rough but we assumed that enough traffic can hit it and burn in a trail pretty quickly.
Basically the only obstacle on the new section.

New Trail on the N. Loop

In preparation for the MNSCS finals in St. Cloud on Sept. 26th at the N. Loop we are making some new trail to accommodate more starts and reduce congestion. Last night we got to work on one of the new sections. Ben Doom, John Broman, Kris and Kyia Anderson as well as Matt Stone got out to get the process started. In the coming weeks we will finish up these sections so look forward to some trail work nights coming up.
Hearing protection is important! WHAT?
It's pretty thick in some areas with a lot of buckthorn and downed treas. Did I mention the mosquito's? They are terrible! There are a few rocks and other natural features that we will be able to incorporate into the trail.
Thanks to all who helped out last night!
