            SWATARA PARK NEW TRAIL UPDATE

               We are getting very close to finishing the new trail. We will be out building Thursday, October 1, from 6 pm till the light gives out. We will be moving our weekend workdays to Sundays since deer hunting (archery) begins again. So on Sunday October 4 we will be out there from 9am till noon. The meeting place is at the main (only) trailhead at the end of State Park Lane.  I will bring the tools; just let me know if you are coming. (click here to send a message)

             I would like to thank last Thursday and Saturday’s crews for helping get this trail closer to the finish line: Terry Resanovich, Nick Resanovich, Chris Shelly, Jeff Strubhar, Brian Despot, Matt McElheny, Desiree McElheny, and Andrea Strubhar.


HUNTING SEASON

            Hunting (archery) starts on October 3 and lasts until November 14.  Please limit your riding to Sundays.

Note: Swatara park is popular for hunting.


SWATARA PARK TRAIL KIOSK

            The Kioskthat is to be installed at the trailhead has finally been delivered to the park. The problem now is that the park staff lacks time to assemble and install it. This sign will have two bulletin boards that are behind glass that will allow us to post club info. So I am looking for volunteers to first stain the individual pieces and then assemble it (this can be done inside a building at Memorial Lake or Swatara Park). Please let me know if you are interested in helping and we can work out details from there. (click here to send a message)
