    NE Iowa opportunity

    Hey all. An exciting situation is beginning to unfold here in the Waterloo/CedarFalls/Waverly area. It is also a sort of sad situation in that the Boy Scouts of America organization must sell land that has been in their organization for well over 40 years, if not much longer. Something about their bylaws requiring them to sell off two tracts of land in Iowa. This one, Camp Ingawanis, happens to be very close to our local, metro area and because of scouting efforts, has over 13 miles of simply amazing singletrack.
    Just sending this out as an initial notification for those that are not in-the-know locally. When complete, this area will expand rapidly as the highway connection is complete and getting there is now super simple.

    In the nutshell, I would personally encourage those with a pocketful of change they're not using to throw a couple bucks into this very much worthwhile project.

    OK, the pdf is too large so here is the link...

    Am imagining that it will be solely maintained by volunteers of the area. I have not spoken with the LBS folk and can only assume they know of it at this time. There is the CVAST (Cedar Valley Association for Soft Trails) coalition...this could serve as a fabulous platform for this newly acquired land. I, personally, plan to put time into this project once the land is available for public use. Currently, the purchase has a temporary status. This was found in a phone call last Friday, with a director tied to the project.
