Sorry there was new plans that was made the Fri. before L,D and sorry for the misshap.I posted as soon as I left the meeting. I was troubled by it all but it is work for the best and the build is farther along than it would have been with the funding.

Hey Ron,
any activity on Sunday at all thought I'd come up and see whats been going on.
I'll probaly get a season pass after the official opening, thought of a cost yet.
I like mud runs I'd like to maybe try those.
Enjoy and thanks for the efforts we need it around here.

I only get to work on the park every Sat and I'm always amazed at what get's done during the week. The park's trails about double every week. We cut a nice one tonight. This will be a nice park when finished! RB

3 more trail runs put in today. one small loop with some rocks. One close to 1/2 mile of twisting up hill climbs loaded up with logs and a few rocks as of now. and a third that Rulebreaker helped trench in. It has plenty of tight turns off cambers and boulders. The XJ with help of the high lift made it around.
