TRAIL STAKE PAINT/REPAIR DATE SET

Mark your calendars for June 7, 2009 11am.  We are combining the trail stake paint/repair day with our summer picnic/potluck and the June meeting.  It will be held by the borough building between the ball field and hockey rink behind Pleasant Valley Store.  The club will provide burgers and buns, you supply a potluck dish.  Bring saw horses and 2x4s (if you have them) along with a staple gun and staples.  We are looking to have at least 10 teams of 2 to help get the trail stakes ready for the next race season.  The club has about 1600 trail stakes.  400 (or so) need completely painted and reflective tape stapled on, the rest need repaired.  This is a fun get together and a chance to visit with each other while accomplishing a major requirement for our races.  Contact Becky if you are coming and what equipment you can bring so plans can be made for extra equipment, food and such. 322-2115 or email akalex1@att.net

EAGLE FLOODS

The board held a special meeting on the flooding in Eagle and voted to donate dog food for the 4-legged victims.  This was accomplished with help from 49er Feed and the Lions Club.  720 pounds of food was sent out May 9th.

COMMITTEES ARE FORMING 

If you are interested in serving on a committee, now is the time for all good members to come to the aid of their club.  I know this is corny, but the club is in danger of races and events being dropped from the schedule.   We have set a cutoff date of November 1, 2009 to acquire race managers for the races.  If no one volunteers, the race will be dropped from the schedule.  Thanks to Bill McKee for signing on to do the TUNE UP.  One thing we would like to see this year?  If you are planning on running one of our races, pick one of the other races to VOLUNTEER for.  The sooner you commit to a race, the better the chance of getting the VOLUNTEER position you want. (like the easy things)  akalex1@att.net  We do have a new VOLUNTEER coordinator.  Thanks to Tiffany Montini for helping the club out.  She will be calling you and ask you to VOLUNTEER.

TRAIL ADVISORY BOARD

Charlotte Davis, with the Borough Trail Advisory Board, discussed trails and right of ways.  She has requested the help of TRDMA to help with a right of way clearing on “TRAILS DAY 2009” June 6.  Everyone was asked to meet at 10 mile CHSR and bring trail clearing equipment, snacks, water, etc.   She can be reached @ 488-6187

RACE DATES ARE BEING SET AND WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN THE NEXT NEWSLETTER.  THE TENTATIVE SCHEDULE IS ON THE WEBSITE
