Lewis & Clark Trail Study Survey

This is from the Council Bluffs Parks & Rec. I encourage you to take the survey to help develop a master plan for a trail from Hamburg to Sioux City.

"The Iowa Department of Transportation, and a consulting team led by RDG Planning & Design of Des Moines and Alta Planning + Design of Portland, are developing a master plan for a multi-use trail that generally follows the route of Lewis and Clark as they explored the Missouri River in Western Iowa. We believe that this trail can provide a great resource for a new generation of people wishing to explore this scenic and historic part of our state. A few minutes of your time used to complete the following survey will help us develop a master plan that can take full advantage of the trail's potential."

2010 Members Meeting Well Attended

Thanks to all who attended the members meeting last weekend. We got a lot accomplished, including voting in a couple new positions and creating new committees. Minutes from the meeting are in progress, so stay tuned for all the details.

And just because you couldn't attend the meeting doesn't mean you can't still sit on a committee. We do want to cap them at probably 6-8 members, so once the minutes are published and you see a committee where you think you can offer some assistance, the chair's contact information will be available. I have to say, those who attended did a great job filling committees. These people are motivated. Things are going to happen!

And thanks again to National Parks for letting us use their meeting space!

1st Trail Conditions Report of 2010

The Trail Leader for Branched Oak reports.

SNOW and lots of it.

Trail team standing ready for the weather to clear so they can add more new trail before the racing season starts!

Boys are fired up down there in Lincoln.

With the two warm up MTB races scheduled there prior to the Psycowpath Race series and other events this is such a great opportunity to get the winter legs and handling skills back up to par.

Stand by patiently for trail day anouncements.
