I just got word from Steve Frank and Todd Gardner that our trail that heads East from Therm City toward the tree line to go to Orchard Vali has been bulldozed for logging . It should be obvious, but be careful!!
Just about one month to go… To all Toads, please buy a ticket or two or more. I know that some people don’t see many other people & so are hesitant to take a packet of 10 to sell. That’s understandable, but if every club member bought at least one ticket, that’s around $3000 right there! Please support your club!
Check out the Newsletter section. Here are a few highlights:
- Big success for the recent rider safety course. Thanks to Darryl Martin and all who put it together.
- The Cooley Hill trail closed but the club will do it’s best to keep the the hill behind Amber Inn passable and safe.
- The hill behind Tanner Valley has been reworked again this year with some nice improvements. Big thanks to Jim Donath and Jim Burt for their hard work. If you see them, be sure to thank them.
- The OCS trail is being planned. Help is always appreciated.
- Don’t forget the Marcellus/Toad Hollow raffle – $50 to the one who sells the most ticket and $50 for the one who selss the winning ticket!
- Tanner Valley Winterfest and Vintage show Saturday January 10th. Chicken BBQ too!
- Vintage Sled ride out of Tanner on January 24th. More info at the next meeting.
