Hello SAMBA! 

I just wanted to pass on a quick SAMBA News update.  

SWATARA STATE PARK

·         The Tuesday night rides are still leaving at 6pm from the trailhead at the end of State Park Lane. All riders are welcome!

·         Come Tame The Jungle! Trimming Thursdays continue this Thursday, 6-24 & 7-1, from 6pm till 8. The idea is to keep the singletrack flowing and still be able to see other users ahead of you. I will be bringing tools, but if you want to bring a trimmer it's ok. There is poison out there, so long pants are recommended. If you can make it please let me know (click here to send a message). Thanks to Nick & Terry Resanovich, Mike Carter, Mark Light, and Andrea Strubhar for helping out so far.

·         Name That Trail. DCNR is looking to SAMBA to name the trails we built at Swatara State Park. So send your name suggestions for any or all of the trails to me (click here to send a message). You have till the first week in July and then I will put a poll up for each trail for all to vote on. I’ll send out an email when the polls are up. If you need a map, click here.

Look out for the Get Your Ride On messages for random rides also.

See you out on the trail!    

Brian Arnold, SAMBA President

This past weekend they helped complete the final phase of North Valley, installed a new sign on the west end of Explorer Lodge and installed the other NO HORSE signs surrounding the horseshoe trail.

Hi everyone,
 
I wish to thank you all for an excellent trail work day at Governor Dick.  Due to a great turnout, all the work scheduled was accomplished.  It was nice to see a variety of trail users from the biking (SAMBA, YAMBA, Reading area, Gretna, E-town), hiking and equestrian community.  Special thanks to:  Jim Lesher, Kory Luginbulte, Jim Kraft, Mark Keiser, Jeff Keiter, Kevin Westover, Steve Rutter, Kathy Shank, Gary Kintzer, Shane Sanders, Brian Despot, Brad Ditzler, the Doxtater family (Brad, Melissa, and Mady), Chris Shelly, Jim Guenther, Michael Barron, Rick Richards (Adopt-A-Trail) and Matt McElheny.  It was a pleasure working with you all.  I will keep you posted of additional work days yet to be determined.  For now, enjoy the trails.
