Reminder On Allatoona Creek Hunting Restrictions

Postby Jiml » Tue Sep 25, 2012 10:23 pm

Just a quick reminder that Allatoona Creek does NOT open until 10 AM, 7 days a week, from now through 10/31 to allow for hunting. Furthermore the trails will be closed completely for the months of November and December. The trails reopen 1/1/13.

There have been some riders pretending to not see the hour signage and there is concern that this abuse could lead to a negative view of MTB riders in the eyes of Cobb government officials.

Please honor the restrictions and pass word of them on to you friends. The hunting access is part of the agreement that Cobb County has with the Corp Of Engineers on the lease of this property. Cobb Parks and Recreations and particularly Cobb Land Manager John Purcell have been instrumental in the rapid development of this trail system. So we in the MTB community need to pay them back with good citizenship and assure future cooperation through playing by the rules.

FYI - Allatoona has recently been awarded a significant grant from REI for continued trail expansion so stay tuned for some serious trail building efforts in 2013.

Thanks

Jim

That is most excellent!

We are meeting on Sunday 11/18 to establish our 2013 workday schedule. We hope to hit expansion efforts hard in the first quarter of the year. Dates will be posted on this Board once set.

Also, Dirty Spokes just released their 2013 race schedule and Allatoona Creek will be the site of the final race of the 2013 GA Duathlon Series on May 18, 2013. See http://www.dirtyspokes.com for more info.

Oh! So you guys are not open for the whole November and December. For me this is the vacation time and I was planning to join you guys back on November. It seems like I have to find some other option to spend my free time. See you in January.





Thanks
