    Post 24 Hours of Allamuchy TM

    For those that did not do the race this year there is a need for some TM at the park related to the 24 hr race. We have been asked by the Promoters to head up the effort. If you would like to come out and lend a hand it will be appreciated. The following is the e-mail from the Propoters:

    Important notice to all riders from this year's 24 Hours of Allamuchy:

    The Saturday night rains of last weekend did more than just make riding
    difficult and dirty. This year those torrential rains, on top of the
    week of rain going into the race, resulted in some serious damage to
    some of the more susceptible Allamuchy trails. We are committed to
    remediating the damage done as a result of the event. In order to
    repair the damage as quickly as possible, we've set up a Trail
    Maintenance weekend for next Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 8 & 9. But we
    will need lots of help, and we'd like to reach out to you for some
    assistance.

    Please let us know if you can join us for the following Trail Maintenance
    (TM) project:

    SAT. Sept. 8, 8:00AM to approx. 2:30PM
    Meet at Mt. Allamuchy Boy Scout Camp, Camp Wheeler side. Coffee,
    bagels, and cold beverages will be provided at 8:00AM. At 8:30AM we
    will head out on foot to begin the TM project on the damaged trails. At
    the end of the day's project we will provide pizza and more cold
    beverages. All necessary tools will be provided.

    SUN. Sept. 9, 8:00AM - approx. 2:30PM
    Essentially the same schedule as Saturday, for as long as needed to
    complete the project.

    We have been coordinating these preparations with the Superintendent of
    Allamuchy State Park, the management of the Boy Scout camp, and JORBA.

    The first 20 people who commit to at least one full day of the project
    will receive a 50% single-rider discount on an entry fee to the 2008 24
    HOURS OF ALLAMUCHY. Depending on how many additional people sign up,
    and for how long they work, we will keep records and provide additional
    smaller discounts for next year's event.

    Please respond, via email only, to the following email address with your
    name, email address, day & evening phone numbers, which weekend day you
    can join us, for approximately what duration that day:

    INFO@24HOURSOFALLAMUCHY.COM

    We will contact everyone who responds to confirm final details.

    We will return the Allamuchy trails to their condition prior to this
    year's race, and we'll be grateful to any of you who can join in to
    help us accomplish this.

    - Dan & Paul, Race Directors,
    24 Hours of Allamuchy

    Is this why the All-A-Muchy race has been cancelled? Of course this brings up the question of why the 24 hr race was held to begin with...
