Sorry for the short notice but we had to make sure logistics were handled first. The first long boardwalk to remedy the boggy sections of the Lakeside trail at Lake Lurleen State Park is currently on schedule to be constructed on April 18, barring problems getting all materials. The workday will start at 8:30 and we will meet in the south trailhead parking lot. Please let the gate attendant know you are there as a volunteer so you do not have to pay admission. Please bring plenty of water and a snack. Also, please bring portable drills and drivers along spare batteries. Also, if anyone some spare 3″ long outdoor screws bring them (we will need 600 of them).
I hope to see many of you there.
We will have a trail work day at Sokol Park this coming Sat. at 8:30–12:30. The main work items are completing installation of trail signs, cutting back vegetation, leaf removal on some trails like Holly, repairing the lower switchback retaining wall on LCBC, remediation on some eroded trail spots like the Nascar section on Sokol Main East just beyond the entrances to Antique and handgrooming of the rerouted section of Brutality. I know this is football season, but the trails don’t care about that. The trails are in relatively good condition, but its been several months since we had a workday, so hopefully a significant number of you will come out for half a day in the lovely woods of Sokol Park. If any of you have specific items or locations of items you want to include in the workday, please send me any email.
Michael Hayes introduced the newest mountain biker in Tuscaloosa to the sport for the first time tonight. Cobi Crispin is from Australia and is a member of the University of Alabama Women’s Wheelchair Basketball team. She did great on her first ride and we look forward to riding with her in the future!
Special Thanks to Gary Falls & Michael Cornwell for taking time this morning to clear the large tree from Tashka. In addition to the tree removal work they also cleared some debris on the Lakeside trail.
I understand these two guys are retired and it is easy for us to say: “well they can do this type of thing because they are retired” but would you really want to spend your retirement years performing laborious work out in the hot sun for no pay? To be honest, I would rather go fishing.
My sincerest appreciation to Gary and Michael (and many others) for their tireless (and relentless) dedication to keeping our trails open.
