  Okay, this may be the first time you have seen all three of these groups combined together, but there are positive changes on the way. Over the last couple of months there have been meetings with a renewed group of individuals to take mountain bike riding in the Central PA area to the next level. Shortly Samba will be an IMBA chapter club and Rattling Creek will be part of the territory!!

The scouts have implemented new guidelines for the use of the camp for non-scout activities such as hiking, biking and trail running. Please reference the attached map and closure date files.
  • Effective immediately, with the exception of Sundays, the camp will be closed to all activities during hunting season.
  • During scout activities the camp will be restricted to the normal summer areas outlined on the map.
  • Night riding is still being evaluated and if the current 1 hour past sundown changes, additional information will be sent out.
  • New gates are/have been installed to limit vehicle travel to the internal areas of the camp.
  • Posting of the map and closure dates will be posted at all entries to the camp.
I would recommend printing these out and keeping a copy for easy reference Please forward this to anyone that uses the camp.  Matt MyersSAMBA- Trail Coordinator J. Edward Mack Scout Reservation

Hello SAMBA,

 

Looks like summer is past and fall is here. Where does the time go? So what has SAMBA been doing? Over the Summer the Advisory Board has met several times in an effort to become an IMBA Chapter to improve and strengthen the Club. The Chapter program will help us focus on the trails with IMBA taking care of our membership (this will make you a member of both SAMBA and IMBA) as well as making us a non-profit club. This process should be complete by the end of the year and in that time we will be looking for people to help with various Committees. With your support SAMBA will be a stronger club that can better support Central Pennsylvania. I appreciate your support and patience as we move through this transition.

 

Upcoming event: Second annual mountain bike night ride at Governor Dick on October 5th. Click here for more info.

Alert: Hunting season begins this Saturday, 9-29-12. Governor Dick is the only park that does not allow hunting. Click here for the hunting schedule.

Tuesday Night Rides: This was the last week for the ride due to the start of hunting season. Keep a look out for the announcement for when we can break out the lights. Should be late October.

 

Renewals: Once SAMBA becomes a Chapter of IMBA the renewal rat es will go up. So renew before the end of October to join at the current rate. Click here for a membership form.

 

See you out on the trail.

 

Brian Arnold, SAMBA President
