    score!!!

    Our local utility donated this many retired solid cedar poles for our mountain bike park to be. The longest is about 70', they vary from 12'' to 18" in diameter.

    How did you go about getting them to donate that? Did you just call and ask?

    kinda sorta. We've heard for 1.5 years that you could get them but it took us a while to make the connection. It started happening a lot faster once we acquired the utility as a parter in the open space project. When the utility has 4000 employees it can be a challenge to make the right connection. I will say this aside from them giving me 12 hour notice on the delivery, they were awesome, and very careful and professional with their heavy trucks.

    AFAIK, they do just give them away. People like to make split rail fences out of them. We'd rather build ladders.
