Thanks Nelson, for putting out this call for help.I think it's also important to point out that people like me will find a way to keep the bike trails operating regardless of how much or how little help we get. With no modesty whatsoever, I'm very good at patching things up, prioritizing essential work, and generally busting hump to get the job done.But, like most things in life, there's always a trade-off. The hours I spend chopping weeds, cutting deadfall, and doing other routine maintenance are hours that could be spent doing other things. I'd like to put berms into some of the turns on the swooping downhills in Over Lode, but finding the time is difficult. I'd like to make the downhills in Chert Dip and Holy Schist fun to ride fast. It is hard to justify working for the fun stuff though when there are more pressing needs.Maybe you are happy with how things are going with your trails. I'll continue to keep Blue Mound open as long as I'm able. But if you want more than the basics, someone(s) else is going to have to step up and contribute. My guess is the same applies to the other trails, and club functions.Walt
Has CORP considered installing a large sign at each trail head advertising the work we do and asking for people interested in helping to become CORP members? I realize that a portion of the community is not interested in becoming a member or volunteering their precious free time, but we might reach a few people who have no idea about the effort CORP makes to build and maintain all these trails. Furthermore, you might reach people who don't go online much and/or do not have a Facebook page. Just a thought...D
I know there is a sign at Blue Mounds that has our name and website on it. It is not that big, but it's well-positioned.
I don't think our signs at trailheads can be too big...Jon
