Trail maintenance this month is moved to 6pm Thursday 15 September. Meet in the carpark at Lake Bryan with bikes, camelbaks, and loppers/axes/handsaws/etc. We will focus on clearing the trail in preparation for the upcoming Power Pedal race 8 October. Mike will check with Barry about whether the Kinesiology students will be participating.

Power Pedal is on 8 October. If you want to volunteer for the race as a trail marshall, contact Mike and he will pass your name on to Adam at BTU. Mike will also check with Barry to see if the KINE students can earn hours volunteering for the race.

Rocky Hill Ranch will be holding a benefit this weekend for fire victims and for volunteer fire departments. JP and Travis are planning on attending, and they will be camping at RHR Friday night. A night lap and a morning lap are planned in preparation for the 24 hour race in October.
