Trail Stuff

–          Garbage being dumped on the FSR behind Mosquito Lake – please keep eyes open for anyone dumping

  • Sign for no dumping garbage – Corinne to ask Allison at SLRD

–          New Green Trail (Brenda)  *see comment from Ian below Re: green trail in one mile area

Project Updates:

–          Enduro went well, we netted about $3000 from the event and gained approximately 70-80 new members.  Was thinking that $$ would be well spent on the Backpains extension that we already have approval for but no real hurry to decide (Ed agrees)

–          Memorial trail names have been submitted to Rudy’s family, waiting to hear back from them.  We have some $$ left in that fund so we can make a nice sign/plaque once they have chosen a name – Ian

–          Waterfall trail has seen some work by Pat.  He is injured so Seb Kemp and Zander are going to step in and continue to work on that project.  Boyd’s kids from PSS may put in some time on the trail as well.  I need to work with Bill to get some signage.

–          Seb Kemp has a hurt back right now but he continues to do great work around the network.  Lots of brushing recently.

–          Dan Raymond is essentially done on Upper Mackenzie, I think he has about 8 hours remaining.  He plans to make the bridge at the bottom a little more user friendly. – All done

–          Lynne Armstrong has put together her women’s event, Air Maiden, for June 13th.  She has some nice flyers up around town.  I’m hoping she is successful so if you know anyone keen encourage them to sign up.

–          I received approval from the Village to build a green trail that will connect Lumpy’s (or Nairn to One Mile) to the new kids trail.  Idea is that we create a progression of loops that new riders can utilize as their skills improve.  There is a fair amount of interest from parents in town so I am hoping to have this be a completely volunteer build.  The trail will also create another easy hiker-friendly loop close to the lake. – Ian

  • Hugh & Ian (and anyone else interested) to walk around the area and identify potential routes

–          Adam is working on Jim Jam now I think he has a couple of days left then that is it for his budget.  All done. – From Ed

–          There’s a tree down on Shama Lama that will need a chainsaw.

–          Also when our trail builders are rerouting new sections we should let them know to be cautious about blocking off the old routes, as we are not the only users of some of these trails, for example the reroute on Overnight that cut out the lower skid road, the lower skid road was blocked off we should unblock this so that other users can access it. Or this could result in moto traffic on the new reroute. – Ed

–          Hugh’s Trail Update; Rock to be added to the new gravel trail entrance near train bridge – signage at end of trail (horse/walk/bike specific areas)

–          Public Access on Ivy Lake – residents talk to SLRD if there are problems accessing the public right of way
