Trailwork ++

Met Squirrel, Kent and Justin at the exit of Denman's on Friday evening for some rework on the exit and a bit of mowing. A couple of hours later we had a good portion of the back half of Denman's mowed and a new exit cut and test ridden. Pete Basso and one other person whose name I didn't catch also showed up to lend a hand. Afterwards, some tasty adult beverages and a trip to Squirrel's place to sharpen up the tools, finish off the bevvy's and head for home. Quick stop at Panchero's for a burrito and I was set for the night.

Went to Banner this morning to help out with the trail work down there. The plan was to move dirt, build derms and cleanup any trees that had fallen over during the winter. We managed to get nice berms built for two high speed corners in the space of about 3.5 hours. We also cleared out a number of trees that were clogging up the works as well. Not a bad bit of work for the size of crew that showed up. Next work day is the 24th at 8:00 AM. We can use a lot more people to help get things finished up.

Steve, a group of Ames guys are meeting at Seven Oaks between 9:30-9:45. If you can make it that would be great. I think there is a group of guys from DM going up early (

I hope to see you there.
