Hey Woolly Land!
School is back in session, the leaves are just starting to turn, there is a crispness to the air some days… in other words, fantastic Woolly riding weather.
We have more nice weather coming this week and the Woolly Club has a few opportunities for you to get involved as well. We will also look forward to whats coming up in the next few months.
Tuesday – Group Ride Suspended for 2017
Unfortunately I think we are going to be suspending the Tuesday night group rides for the season. First, the sun is setting earlier and it will be hard to get much of a ride in before it gets dark. Second, most of our usual ride leaders are busy helping out the Chisago Lakes High School mountain bike team on Tuesday nights.
Stay tuned though as fat bike season starts firing up and we will be starting the Wednesday Night Fat Rides.
Wednesday – Trail Work Night
We are going to spend some time Wednesday evening doing some digging in the dirt and we would love to have more people out to help. Specifically we are going to do some deberming and improving some drainage in the low spots in Riegel and perhaps Big Oak depending on the number of helpers we get.
This will help the trail dry out quicker after it rains and therefore open quicker. And we all want to ride more.
Thursday – Woolly Board Meeting
Thursday evening, 7:00pm at the St. Croix Falls library is our monthly board meeting. These meetings are always open to any interested folks. We will be working on planning for upcoming events, discussing the upcoming board elections, trail projects, and any other ways the Woolly can get involved in the community.
Please come join us and develop some Woolly excitement.
October 8th – Woolly Day
Just making sure that folks get this on their calendar. Our annual celebration of Woolly Trails will be Sunday afternoon on October 8th (weather back-up of October 15th). We are still planning, but expect the usual good company, good riding, and some good food.
November 9th – Woolly Annual Meeting and Board Elections
Another item to get on your calendars. Our November meeting will be a bigger meeting that we usually have. We will have a “State of the Woolly” type of address. We will then hold our board elections. The board positions open this year are Chairman, Treasurer, and all three Board Members at Large. All board positions are open to any member in good standing (IMBA membership up to date with Woolly designated as your chapter). There will be a bunch more about the elections process coming in the next couple of weeks.
Have a wonderful Woolly week!
