CCCMB Trail Work Day, this Sunday, 12/13/09.
All current crew leaders please attend if your schedule allows.
The FASTA group building the Bike Skills features in the Euc Grove will become stewards of Elevator, Shooters and Morning Glory trails, working with CCCMB to maintain this area. This trail day we will be working with pavers and peeler core, items that will be used constructing the skills features. All FASTA members are encouraged to join us.
FASTA plans to have some skills demos to show us during the work day.
This coming Sunday, December 13, 2009 at 9:00am. This will be a half day, done by 1:00pm. Since it is optimal to have moist dirt to work on maintenance, we plan to work rain or shine. If it has rained so much that we cannot get into the area, we will send an email notice on Saturday. Otherwise, we will move dirt.
We will meet at the TOP of Elevator trail above the tracks on Stenner Creek. You can walk or ride in, starting at the Poultry Unit on Stenner Creek Road, come up Poly Canyon from SLO, or shuttle to the top of Shooters and ride down to Elevator. Meet at the top of Elevator Trail near the Eucalyptus Grove at 9:00 am. We will assign crews, distribute tools, and walk down the trail to work areas.

Crew leaders, please let us know who will be there, please respond to this email. Please plan to be there by 8:30am.
We have a few areas that need attention, and are hoping that anyone who knows they will attend, please respond to this email saying, "I'll be there." This will help us plan where we can assign crews to work on the areas that need it most. Thank you for signing up in advance!
We will be performing maintenance, primarily rebuilding grade reversals to control water so it does not damage the trail. Some areas where the pipeline project crossed need extra attention for drainage. Two corners on the lower section of trail, below the series of bridges, need some tread armoring. One section has some erosion where the trail crosses the old road and needs maintenance. The upper section with the paver bermed corner is in need of completion and some trail realignment below it. Another corner could use some realignment and armoring as well. Included are photos of some areas we will be working to repair and / or maintain.
