2013 Race course - request for volunteer

Postby dirtyboy » Sun Sep 08, 2013 9:22 am

Well, most of the race course deflagging has been completed. Thanks to all who have worked on this task over the last few weeks. :applause: :applause: :applause:

There is a 30 minute job left right near the Fallen Timber campground. The race ribbon for the start of the adult course from just East of the bridge (where we ride under the Forestry Trunk Road) to the creek crossing and up the hill needs to be removed. Also there is a very small amount West of the same bridge, on the South side of the creek. I think it was from the kids loop.

If there is anyone up in that area that would consider volunteering to remove the ribbon that would be great. There are still a number of tasks left to finish up the work around the race so if someone would step up on this one it would help out a lot. :thumbsup:

Thank you for your consideration.

Thanks so much. Make sure to bring some rubber boots so you can get across the creek without getting too wet. :thinking:

Pretty sure we deflagged our loops there, but there is a lot of flagging out there.....been many races over the years, and not all by us.

Really appreciate you helping with this, and DB for posting it :thumbsup:

The Kids and I definitely got the Ladies / Kids Beginner loop completely deflagged on the Monday after the race. Some of the prior race flags on other tracks were around... we only cleared far enough they wouldn't get confusing on our loop.

Need to find flagging that stays sound until frozen, then disintegrates :D

Not sure if it has been tested before... seems legit. :thumbsup:
