    Liz at the Tigerton park needs help fixing and brushing some trails at Tigerton. I would like to move this work weekend to Tigerton over Sinawa. Allen Wohlfeil and the Trail Guide Ambassadors went up there last weekend and identified some things we should try and fix (and some we shouldn't).

    Elizabeth Reilly said she can get some bigger equipment to the park for Saturday and Sunday so we can brush, saw, drag, etc. I'd like to try and get the stone off the side of the trail on the trails to make them slow speed crawling trails and start filling in the massive water areas along the perimeter trail. If we have any heavy equipment operators ( Louis Kelly / Dick Schmidt are you available?), maybe we look at helping operate the machines? Obviously, we can't have people without experience running these, but I think we have a fair amount of people in our group who do that for a living.

    I may have the first set of signs done for this event so we can replace our temp signs from Oct. and get some very nice signs up there that have the levels, names, intersections etc. Those test signs were a big home run.

    While much of the park is fairly well-kept, there are some areas we can fix and help maintain to keep building our relationships with the village, the rangers, and show we want to help make this the first true OHV park in Wisconsin!

    Talked with Jon Jansen at Sinawa this morning about getting permission to dump the next load of rocks on the northern side of the parking lot (where we usually build the parking lot log crawl each year). We need to provide a rock base for the northern trail so that we can get into the trails without disurbing folks that may be camping at Suger Maple or the grassy campsite. This also makes sure that our events don't cancel during Spring Breakup like it did this Spring because the campsites on the southern trail are underwater during the thaw and it's all soft dirt and grass we don't want to tear up.

    Jon is getting prices for 10 loads of fist to head sized stone from the local gravel pit (we are paying for) and we'd have them dump 3 loads at a time in the parking lot so Dick Schmidt, Tom De Sombre, Louis Kelly and all of us who help do trail work can deposit the rock and pack it down before the summer and fall rides.

    I'm also requesting that the VIP ride in May be moved back to the end of June just before that work day weekend (the origional crawlerfest weekend from 2019) so the trails have time to dry up, it's warmer so we can take the tops off etc.

    Trying to find a weekend or even a day in May where we can start this shindig. We have enough funds to pay for the rocks and signs we're doing for this Spring (thanks everyone for joinging and renewing!). Any help we can get would be awesome.

    Dennis Pecha said we can use his skid steer brush cutter from Nortec, their newest model needs videos and such in return.

    Not sure if Ryan Fredrickson wanted to bring out a Billy Goat brusher at some point, we'd like the film that too.

    Possible Dates -
    April 28th (Sunday)
    First weekend in May?

    It would be great to have this done for Go Topless stuff. Post below if you have either of those who weekends open.

    • I believe either of those weekends would work if there's anything we can do.

I thought some folks in here had access to equipment like that, but can't be sure. Moving this much rock with a small bucket will take many days, a larger loader would greatly reduce the time. This trail is right next to the parking lot where the rocks would be dumped.   More ...

    • Ok, we'll hold off on ordering rock until we have the equipment to move it.
