Sat 6/4 & or Sun 6/5

If there are any willing bodies out there I would love some more help on Eastside this weekend.

Plan is to add a few more rocks and dirt to the exit end of the big berm. Finish cutting back the inside bank of the berm and turn the exit corner into another berm. This is mostly a berm already, just need to massage it a bit. Finish adding dirt on the lead in berm, smooth out the trail from the double track to the lead in berm and add some dirt to the outside edge so you can maintain high speed through that section coming into the berms.

Any help on either day would be appreciated. Please let me know who can make it.

Can't wait to get up there to rip these berms! One thing I found out when building a trail with berms is that for every berm you build you need to build another one because your just carrying that much more speed down the trail. Good times 8)

I'm out for Sunday (first official NEMBA trail day to get things rolling at Page Hill!)
I could, however, come out for an hour or two on Saturday... let me know what your plans are.

Adam, I had a feeling you were headed to help Jesse. I will get over there to help some day but not before the races. If you need your tools just grab them. I have to get Eastside tight first. Then there is the little matter of a kids course.

FYI, I'm starting to drink the Rogue Hoe juice. I still think it's a bit light duty for going to town on a rocky bank but as a second tool that stays sharp to trim top soil back, smooth banks, and cut roots it works pretty well. I may owe you a new one before this project is done thou, as it's starting to get a little on the dull side.

As for my trail work plans this weekend I plan to work on Eastside both days. [b:5d6b767f4c]Saturday[/b:5d6b767f4c] I'm thinking a morning start around 10am and probably work for 3+- hours. Time is flexible and there is no guarantee I will be there at 10 so call or email me if you can help out. [b:5d6b767f4c]Sunday[/b:5d6b767f4c] I will likely get a later start but it depends a lot on Dana's schedule if he is still available.

I can still use all the help I can get so any help is appreciated.

The kids course is pretty well set Ryan, all raked and cleaned up. Just need to put up some arrows to point them the right way.
