Thank You, Paul Panetta, for stepping up as the new trail captain of Marl Ravine at YRSP! Downed trees, etc, on Marl can be reported on EVMA Chatter, and tag Paul.

Call for Trail Captain at Indian River  - IRP is nearly impossible to manage in a way that meets our trail building and maintenance standards, however, we remain committed to keeping trail access open, because it is the only legal mountain bike trail on the South side. South siders, we need your help! Contact Jim Irby to volunteer as a trail captain or in another capacity. Better yet, join us at the meeting this weekend to discuss what you'd like to help out with! Also, Mike Buff will thank you!  :-)

Call for Ride Leaders - You need not be an expert rider to be a ride leader! Please help out and volunteer to lead a ride - pick your favorite park and your favorite trail, and contact ride coordinator, Penny Rich, to add it to the ride calendar!
