      I just received this email from BMRA:
      Make plans now to join us in late October (Oct 27th weekend) for the Fall Work Weekend. Come on out by yourself or with your club and help maintain the trails for yours and others riding enjoyment and enhanced safety. We'll make sure all solo workers are paired up with a work buddy or group. Please bring your own tools. All entry fee's are waived for trail workers. If you work a half day, you can wheel a half day. If you work whole day, you can wheel a whole day. We will be serving hamburgers, hotdogs and cold drinks for all workers on Saturday only. Please remember to complete the volunteer log book to record all your volunteer hours. Hope to see many of you at Barnwell during trail clean-up!"

      We may also need help with other things around the office. Last Spring we did some spring cleaning and painting. I will have a To-Do list at the pavilion. Of course, the gate opens at 8AM on Saturday and we usually get started about 9AM. As people come in to volunteer, we point them to the pavilion where they can sign up and maybe group up with other people. We usually have OHV and dirtbike groups work on certain sections. Side by Sides are a growing group and usually work on campsites or OHV trails. Feel free to add to this. I'd like to get as many volunteers as possible. This will be the last big cleanup for the year-end and before the OHV events start in the Spring. We have SCARR, Megarun and the Toyota Jamboree scheduled for 2013.

      You will see the new BMRA Cabin #1 the next time you visit!

      Note, this is the same day as the planned Halloween Run at BMRA.
