A general observation. TM dates are poorly posted on all the sites. Frank does a good job with the Allaire TM. Other than that I rarely see mention made of the TM dates. So I guess I'm saying good job getting the word out.

The only reason it has not been posted on either forum as of yet is it may be canceled because of the trails conditions. We don't want to do more damage having a group of people hiking to the site. I'll update as soon as I find out the decision.

Jeff, thanks for posting it anyhow.

Kirt,

I see, but then, I don't really see. Let me clarify my confusion. When Mergs posted the trail conditions link, I followed it and ended up looking at the Jorba site a little. I saw a post from you, actually, about TM at CR (I think it was CR). So it made me wonder why you would post on Jorba but not MTBNJ. Thus, my confusion.

BTW - happen to talk to your ex-coworker Scott in the last 24 hours?

Norm,

It was basically the same deal, wet/semi snowy trails. We didn't know if they where going to cancel/postpone it, so based on that there was no plan as to what trail work could be done & what to do with a bunch of volunteers had they showed up.

I think we did a good job of promoting the tm's the 2nd half of the yr for CR & it showed in the amount of volunteers that came out for the last 3 (between 15 & 20).

The TM is still on for Sunday. The Park Rangers make the final call & they want to proceed with the planned maintenance. Hope to see some of you there.

Thanks, Kirt

We'll try and be better about getting the word out.

The one central source is to hit the JORBA calendar:

http://www.jorba.org/phpBB2/calendar.php

Pretty easy to get all the info at a glance.

The cross-posting of TMs on the riding forums is up to the chapter leaders and they tend to do it based on the extra time they have (after the day job and life outside of riding suck up our time). I try to do it personally when time permits, but there is a lot going on this year I may miss a few of these cross posts here and there. Kirt is doing a kick arse job helping Bob A get the word out for JORBA/Somerset Co Parks. That April clinic looks like an awesome event.

How about an RSS feed with all TM updates? I can automate the posting of those.

We had a great crew of 5 plus Ranger Dan from Somerset Cty today. We completely re-routed the washed out gully that connects signposts 7 to 9. We constructed a new rock bridge over the creek as part of the new trail as well. Hopefully some pictures to follow soon.

Good to meet you today Jeff. I think that will be a fun downhill trail, hopefully it will hold up well. No pictures as when Bob went to resize them he made them to small to see & didn't save the originals.

Later
