My most humble apology to all

I rode the local trails Mon night with Jason and had an epiphany. The trails are overgrown and in poor repair, as was stated in earlier posts. It just hit me that Mr. Force is probably running a lawn service with all the equipment that he bought with donated money from various businesses around town. I noticed last Saturday at the shop that Greg was very evasive as to Mr. Force's whereabouts, stating he was procuring consumables from the local Hispanic fast-food establishment. I'm theorizing he was really out making some bank with the "trail working" equipment. Please be comforted by the fact that I am seeking out each of the "sponsors" and informing them of Mr. Force's shenanigans. We will put a stop to his capitalizing on use of the equipment bought strictly for trail work. This being said, please realize it is theory and there is no hard evidence to back it up. The strongest argument I have is the belief that none of the people that ride our local trails would allow them to degrade to their present state if free access was available for the right tools allowing the proper maintenance to be done. I simply have to conclude that people are wanting to use the tools, and Mr. Force is turning them away. Thank you for your time and I again apologize for not keeping closer tabs on Mr. Force's activities. Sincerely yours, Clyde S. Dale

I had expected as much. There can be no other explanation. Nice shot of Mr. Force in the paper though, notice no trail tools in the background. Actually I've been so busy with work but hey let's get together and knock out some weeds (and spiders).

Sunday morn, after I leave work at I'm gonna go cut the Girl scout trail trees that are impeding forward motion with the saw. That should take about an hour or so. Then I'm gonna do some weed eating where it's the worst. 2 of us could whip the GS camp in prob 3 hours or less if we hoofed it. I carry gas and string in a pack as to be portable and get more done. Greg and I ran outta water the last pass through GSC and that sucked bad. Brian Stanton said he could help Sun morn. Let's get a few together and see what we can get done by noon. If even one side of a trail is weedeaten/ed/whatever, it makes it easily ridable and a hell of alot better than it is now. Shawn has 2 good trimmers and Brian has a strong one. Let's try to round up 1 or 2 more and kick some ass!
I get off work Sunday morning at 7am and will be at GSC by 7:45.

Come one, come all. I have a family-type function later that day, so I wont be able to work till the sun goes down...like I could anyway. That's kinda like pretending I could race the pro class if I didn't have to work and all I had to do was train
