The Minutes for the April DHPT meeting:

1. 2009 officers will be the same as last year.
1. President Jeff Friedhof
2. Vice President Doug Osborn
3. Secretary Jesse Reyerson
4. Treasurer Pete Blodgette

2. Time Trials: The Course has been drawn out and Saturday April 11th will be the work day. Gather at the Trail entrance for Boa and Wold's off of Ice Cave Road at 3:00 if you can help.
The course map will be available on the blog and the website this week. The most work will be restoring the east end of the river trail and a replacement for the exit from Boa/Wold's to Ice Cave Road has already been built. The remaining work will be nipping and raking.

3. Dirt Burger: June 19-20-21.
The Camping area will be the campground used for the Ballyhoo 2 years ago. If the area is wet like last year, we will move up to the Pines and Fire pit area in Van Peenen.
Friday night there will be a casual night ride around 9:30. Saturday will consist of 2 organized group rides. Saturday night there events and it is still undecided if there will be any official "party". Sunday will be a gravel ride to Bluffton leaving around 10:00 AM.

4. DHPT T-Shirts will be $15. I will be sending out more information this week.

5. The weekly Time Trials will start this coming Tuesday, April 14 starting at 6:15 from the Van Peenen fire pit.

6. Adopt a Trail
Again this year, please adopt a section of trail to maintain this summer. You can do a section in a group or by yourself, we just ask that you make sure that you find time to keep the weeds down and make sure the trail is ride-able. Jeff O'Gara will take care of any chainsaw work in the case that a tree falls in your trail, but weeds and leaves will be your responsibility. Please send me an e-mail with your preferred trail section.

Other than that, the trails are already in rockin' shape. Get out and enjoy them!

I was able to meet up with Folkey and do some trail work on "Mother's Day," mostly a few of the ravine crossings. Trail looks challenging! Translation: I probably can't ride it. :-)
