When: Sunday, May 2, 2010, 1 p.m. till 3 p.m.
Meet: At shelter 6, will we be introduced to other by DNR staff (wear your thor shirts)
What to bring: gloves, and work clothes.
May want to bring your bike to ride the cleaned trails when we are finished. This event is a lake wide clean up with us focusing on the bike area. Lets see how many mountain bikers we can get to help out with this project. If you come late just meet at the river ramp and start filling the black trailor with trash, bags will be inside it. Help celebrate earth day by picking up trash on the bike trails at Lake Manawa. Hope to see your face Sunday.

I flagged the rest of the beginner loop at Adams Park this afternoon. Mowed to make sod cutting easier and to see layout if flags are removed. 3hrs onsite.
Standing near end of trail completed with IMBA.
Didn't take pic of open area beyond this leading into the turn around in trees.
Just past turn around. Returning to start along ridge line. You can also see lower trail to left.
Hope it goes well for those busting sod and benching this weekend.
Below, this is on neverrest where the new downhill crosses.
This is new down trail at bottom of neverrest just before it connects with the current ridge trail that goes south to the 4 corners.
This is the new up trail from the four corners paralleling the ridge trail and dumping onto the ridge trail just before the left turn downhill and right turn onto neverrest.
Paul, Vince, Dave, Brian, Todd, Corey, and myself benched the trails cleared by the Teen Serve group on Friday. Probably half the downhill trail is done.
Because there is so much trailwork to do on the THOR trails and not enough manpower, we will use the lower part of neverrest and cut in just the top two of five switchbacks for the uphill trail, saving the rest till later this Fall, hopefully.
The current neverrest trail is still 2 way traffic so be careful.

Sorry for the miscommunication. Those who worked yesterday at L&C, clearing the remainder of the new down trail of brush, including the roots would be a great task if you find yourself there.
Tool of choice: pulaski or pickaxe.
At CC, we have some signage to install and checkover the trail for trees to clear. I plan to be at CC around 13:00.
For the rest of you reading this several days later, never mind. 8-)

I have homemade goodies from the scouts at church to eat while you work.
Bring your shovels, and bikes and your own drinks if you prefer something other than gatorade. Just come and have fun, the river is waiting for you!

Thank you for all of your hard work. You came together like the amazing group you are and made some things happen.
We have much to do to finish Adams. We are up for the challenge. I saw it on Saturday. Stay tuned for a schedule of trail days coming.
You guys just rock.

Yesterday, THOR members participated in the community meeting to discuss trail plans at Adams Park. In the photo, Orentheian Everett (right), Director of the Adams Park Community Center, is talking with Steve and Morgan Lommele, Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew.
Director Everett, Tammie Dodge of Activate Omaha, and Kent McNeill (THOR President) addressed the attendees. Steve and Morgan gave a presentation about IMBA and singletrack trails. Representatives of the City of Omaha, National Parks Service, and the North Omaha community attended. A Q&A session was followed with a general discussion.
Watch for more information about the Adams Park efforts. Photos will be posted on the THOR web site.
