We could use about 6 to 8 folks to help this Friday afternoon at Freedom Park.  Bring a shovel and wheelbarrow if you can.  Meet at the Boy Scout loop, at the intersection of Trail C and the paved multiuse trail 3, near the Go Ape ziplines. 

The plan is to move dirt to re-shape the first two “roll-downs” that we worked on 2 weeks ago that turned out steeper than intended (these were not intended to be drops or poorly-designed jumps, which is almost how they are now).  We’ll extend out the roll-downs to make them less steep and “divey.”  The goal is to keep some “whoop” factor but allow for speed and flow, with the rocks meant to prevent erosion.  Thanks to the several dozen people who provided input by e-mail, in-person on the trail, etc.  Some said keep them as-is.  More said make them into more/bigger jumps!  Most said they’re too steep and should be flatter/flowier, which is what we’re aiming for Friday.
