Trail Building class

Postby Randy Greene » Thu Jan 06, 2011 10:11 am

I was supposed to take a class back in September or October at Gainesville College but it was canceled. SORBA-ATL was gonna pick up the tab in return for me leading some work parties. Well I was told there was to be another one in January but I have not heard a thing. Anyone know when it is supposed to happen?

The chapter president got the email awhile back and was supposed to add you to the list. I'm sorry...I'll follow up with her.

Postby trigeekbil » Fri Jan 07, 2011 11:03 am, and any other chapter members, have the GREEN LIGHT and our encouragement to get into the trail builders/crew leader classes ASAP. Walt will bill us directly and you'll get 'the hat'! We have major projects underway on all of our trails and really need more leadership and experience on the work parties.
