July 2008 News
Be sure to attend our Club meeting on August 6 at 7:00 P.M. at the courthouse in Castle Dale. Emery County Commissioner Laurie Pitchforth will be our guest and will let us know her feelings on some of the issues concerning the county. If you have questions, now is the time to ask them. We hope to have other local candidates at future membership meetings.
A big thank you to Ferrel Atwood for being a great guide on the June club ride to the Humbug area! We unloaded and left at 9:30. Our leader took us down Never Sweat and past the twin peaks to Humbug Wash. Then we went up Sumerville. We got to see the chinese rock houses and part of the old railroad grade. Some of us then continued to Joe's Hole, past Whiskey Springs and back to Box Flat and our trucks. There were 26 riders and everyone had a great time. Thanks to all who attended. Hope everyone can make t on our future rides. We appreciate the time our chairmen and guides put into the rides each month.
July Club Ride
The club ride for July will be on July 12. We will meet at Hogan Pass at 9:30 A.M. Our guide Glenys Sitterude will lead us to a surprise destination. We are not going to Torrey, but to a different place. Bring your lunch and prepare to be surprised!
Help with the Trails
Trail Chairman Dennis Mangum needs help with the trails signing. All trails in the system need to be covered and new signs installed if any are missing. Many trails have already been done, but there are a few left. If you can help, call Dennis at 286-2450.
Reeder Canyon Trail Project
The Reeder Canyon Trail Project was completed June 24-26. Many volunteers tuned out to help and were greatly appreciated. A temporary bridge was built at the bottom of the canyon to cross Reeder Creek. A portion of the big rock was shaved off to make the trail safer. Several new bridges were also installed in the canyon to eliminate damage to wet areas of the trail. Both the north and south trails were cleared of downed trees and the loop is travelable now. Thanks to everyone who helped and also to the Forest Service.
Remember to pick up garbage along the trails on all your rides.
Keep our trails clean, enjoyable, and open.
