Now why couldn't you guys do that while I was in WI so I could help?!?!

I second this. I'll be a Quivey's Grove though.
CORP is a stupid legacy hang on from the beginnings of this club in the 90's. It was dumb then and it is dumb today. That said, changing our brand at this point in time is a distraction. Maybe over the winter but lets try to stay focused on a migration towards revising the board structure, getting our events attended and our current trail obligations attended to. Perhaps a renaming campaign this fall.
A far better resource going forward regarding local knowledge is the MTB project that is sponsored by IMBA.
Our trails are in the process of getting put on the site.
I stopped using MTBR for trail reviews years ago. The last trail review for Blue Mounds was in 2011. I guess not much has changed since then but the reviews are often inaccurate (e.g. Willow Springs is a ski trail) or done by people I wouldn't trust for their opinion.
The picture for the Blue Mounds review is me (and Walter I believe) riding Rimshot, taken by William. It took like two years to get posted and the resolution they used is so bad you can't even really make anything out.
I've put in requests in the past with description of pump track, trails, jumps and trials features to spoon feed every skill in the sport.
I made another request today. Some more of us asking???
Just a note: I brought a sixer of dunklesbier that I added to the pot; so there was some darker, non-hoppy beer available.
On the other hand, I think we take this fear way too far. A little common sense goes a long way. When was the last time a mountain biker was shot in Wisco? I believe it is never.
Blue Mounds is so much fun! Over Lode is a sweet trail, too. Walt, thanks for hosting this. My only request: Next time please specify the beer you're bringing so I know if I need to bring my own. I am an admitted beer snob and like brown and black ales, porters, and stouts, not the hoppy trendy stuff so popular now.
I'm curious.....how much was Walt charging for beer?
