Trailmaster Report:  Richard Smith:   dooer@roadrunner.com

  • Due to the difficult winter I have experienced it is with deepest regrets that I have to step down from the Trailmaster position. I will however be on hand to do Landowner relations, maps, grant paperwork and anything else that does not require strenuous activity. I am looking forward  to a great season knowing that we all can work together to continue to make our club the success we have enjoyed in the past.
