    Ok, so I was off having fun.... pardon me for leaving...

    We wrote the grant to rebuild to "landmark" structures at our (future) mountain bike park site. They've been there forever, and are rather decrepit. One, the ladder on the DH race we actually tore down after the grant application because it was totally unrideable. The other, "Leap of Faith" has been redesigned by the local star DH guy and shop owner , to be better in many ways. We have a letter of support from the Parks department. The idea is to have some demonstration projects that show the right way to build things, that we aren't tearing all the old stuff down, and that we are working with the Parks Dpt.

    One thing that is funny, after we sent off the grant application we got that truckload full of cedar donated from Avista....

    here's the DH course ladder before it fell down and we tore it out;


    Here's the Leap of Faith, from an old race photo:
