Brushing & Signing 2013
 
This thread is your one stop shop for our bushing & signing 2013.

Official Brushing and signing dates for the Straits Area Snowmobile Club are October 19th and 26th for this year.

If you have never been to a brushing weekend, head on up for a good time, with some hard work, and interesting stories! An appreciation gathering will be Saturday evening, with dinner drinks and tall tales.

Bringing simple tools in encouraged, if you have a favorite chainsaw bring it for a bit of a workout.

On Saturday, optional meeting at the truck stop, 7am for breakfast.
Meet 8am at the Super 8 on US-2 in St. Ignace to load up and head out on assignments.

Rooms discounts will be available at the Super 8 & Budget Host for those helping out.

We load up, and hit is hard and sign of our trail system in one day. Some brushing needs are met too as of course, there are also always trees to be killed ! This years extra project will be to brush and sign a small new destination connector.

We work hard, then we will play hard and have dinner afterwords at a local tavern.

Thanks to all those who do so much for our club & the program in general.
Lets get a roll call going and see who we will partying or um, working with.
See ya soon.

I'll be there the first weekend for sure and maybe both. If you end UP short handed for the second weekend, I will come and help then for sure.

Well I was planning on this weekend but the Japenese invasion is underway and I have been told I have to be in Oxford at the eldest's home to make nice with the in-laws. He does make good beer though:drink[1]: I guess that I will be on the follow up week. Can't believe we are this close to excercising the right thumbs again:sledder:

Sent Neil a text saying I would come next weekend instead. I can help in the fields farming this weekend. Will make enough over the weekend to pay for a trip UP north. Seemed like a no hrainer.

Never heard of a no hrainer. Pretty embarrassing for a guy who was in the printing business for 67 years, LOL!!!
I MIGHT be able to make it UP with the Buckeye gang next weekend. Might be a possibility.

So how did it go last weekend?

As far as I know I will be coming with Curt, Kenny and maybe Floyd this weekend.

Ended up getting rained out of work last Saturday but I did get plenty of hours in on Friday.

I think we signed about 40% of the trail system Saturday.

Just got a chance to download my phone.

Todd's right, we got about 38 miles done. Caffey, Cut River, All Burma, and Brevort lake road are done. Killed a few trees, fixed a bridge rail, fixed some crooked posts, and replaced some missing signs. The A team did an A-OK job. :)

We cut the biggest tree that I have had to deal with on the trail. Took Todd's DuraMax to drag it off trail cuz there was no way I was lifting or even rolling that beast.

Like always, I think everybody had a camera, and nobody was taking pics, but I think we each got a few.
