OTHER NOTES

JCC Destination Recreation Expo is Saturday, February 25th from 9am to noon.  EVMA needs a volunteer or two to talk to attendees about all the great trails in the Williamsburg area.  Please contact Jim Irby if you can help out.

There is a plan to purchase some new jerseys that will be available for purchase to club members.  Please visit the EVMA chatter page to give your input of which colors should be considered.

Finally, a note about renegade trail work. Improvements to trails is very much appreciated, but PLEASE do not perform any unauthorized trail work.  You SHOULD remove limbs or trees that have fallen on the trail, but you SHOULD NOT blow leaves off the trails.  Yes, the trails are difficult to see in places, but riding over the leaves helps the trail stay in good shape overall.   If you have an idea of how to improve a trail, please submit your ideas to Jim Irby.
