SWATARA PARK NEW TRAIL REPORT PDF Print E-mail
Written by Brian   
Sunday, 13 September 2009 13:52

The new trail at Swatara Park has gone way past the half way point. I don’t think it will be done before hunting begins at the beginning of October (which means build day’s will be on Sundays), but anything is possible.  Thursday we had 4 and on Sunday we had 3 people working hard the new trail. I would like to thank this week’s crew:

  • Thursday’s Crew (9-10-09): Terry Resanovich, Nick Resanovich, and Andrea Strubhar
  • Saturday’s Crew (9-13-09): Terry Resanovich and Andrea Strubhar

Here are the next workdays:

  • Thursdays  9-17, & 9-24 be ready start at 6 pm – we work till dusk
  • Saturdays  9-19, & 9-26 be ready start at 9 am – we work till noon

I will bring the tools; just let me know if you are coming  (click here to send a message).

 

See you out on the trails!

SWATARA PARK

The new trail at Swatara Park is progressing quickly. Thursday we had 11 and on Saturday we had 6 people blazing in the new trail’s path through the woods.   At this point I think that we are at the half way point (not bad for 4 weekday evenings and 4 Saturday morning’s worth of work!).  

I would like to thank this week’s crew:

Ø  Thursday’s Crew (9-3-09): Mike Carnegie, Terry Resanovich, Nick Resanovich, Mike Althouse, Faith Mumma, Brad Ditzler, Ben Kreider, Darryl Bush, Joe Daversa, and Andrea Strubhar

Ø  Saturday’s Crew (9-5-09):  Chris Shelly, Kory Jones, Darryl Bush, Jeff Strubhar,  and Andrea Strubhar

I think we can be very close to finishing the trail by the end of the month (if not done) if we have enough people at the workdays. Hunting season begins in early October and I would like to be done before the season begins. So here are the next workdays:

Ø  Wednesday 9-9-09 be ready start at 6 pm – we work till dusk

Ø  Thursdays  9-17, & 9-24 be ready start at 6 pm – we work till dusk

Ø  Saturdays 9-12, 9-19, & 9-26 be ready start at 9 am – we work till noon

I will bring the tools; just let me know if you are coming (click here to send a message).

 

See you out on the trails!
