I am hoping to be back in town in time for the meeting tomorrow. I have to be in Cleveland tomorrow morning.

This sounds like it could really be great for people who are wheeling their DD and don't have tow rigs, trailers, purpose built rig, etc...

Well, some areas of that pit were active recently, even within the last few years. But the main gravel trains are on M24.

Most of the homes anywhere near there are the ones in Oxford Lakes on the south side of Lakeville road, which, the bulk of the ones near Lakeville rd are under 20 years old. Homes along Oxford rd and Ray rd are pretty sparse. I bet the loudest thing around is the high school and middle school (the old high school). All the Oxford Lake house are built on old gravel pit land (which is the origin of all those lakes).

Hey-coulda used some Oxford 4x4 supporters at the Village meeting tonight. We were outnumbered about 10 to one by some very vocal, very passionate local homeowners.

If you live in the area and want to see this park happen, you need to pit down the TV remote for am evening and get to tomorrow's meeting.

Xamillion, there's how many members on GL4x4 and how many live with in an hour from Oxford? We need people to show up tomorrow and very early to get seats inside! If you see yourself wheeling this park you owe it to yourself to show up and help out!

Thanks to those that made it out.

Meeting tomorrow at 7pm. There will be a cold keg at the Metemora Chop shop afterwards for all who attend, please contact trailrail302 for wristbands at the Veterans Civic Center. There will also be trophies for various categories. This is for serious and chevotass approved.

In all seriousness, if we don't do better this project will die.

I am not sure of the size of tomorrows venue. people started coming in an hour early tonight. The township is much larger than the village so I expect MORE people tomorrow. Meeting is at 7. I plan to be there BY 5:30.
