Default Brushing & Signing dates 2014

Looking at October 18 & 25th this year for dates, maybe the 11th if most people like that instead. Any thing out there work/don't work well? Post it up and Ill post official dates next Monday.
Been there all summer, but there is a chill in the air!

Take your pick. I can probably make it twice. Any of the 3 weekends work for me.

We have our final race of the season the 10th-12th. Both weekends after that will be no problem.

This thread is your one stop shop for our bushing & signing 2014.

Official Brushing and signing dates for the Straits Area Snowmobile Club are October 18th and 25th for this year.

AND we will announce that unless something strange happens, our official dates will ALWAYS be the 3rd, and 4th Saturday of October. We always float around those weekends or a little later, time to make it totally official.

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 at a local tavern, with dinner drinks and tall tales.

We have most of the tools we will need, but 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 it 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 officially brush and sign a small new destination connector to the Cut River Bridge!.

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 18 the for sure and a 50% chance for the 25th. If you have way too many for the 18th and not so many for the 25th I will just come that weekend. Whatever weekend you need people the most.

Looks like I will have to change my weekend to the 25th only. I got asked to help on the farm side at work so that means working on Saturdays. I will be coming with Griz, my son and probably Floyd. Looking forward to a great day on the trails.

Roll call here

For the 18th, looks like we have:
Kevin + Cathy
Kenny + Family?
Todd

For the 25th, looks like we have:
Wink + Son
Westhouse +4

Good split of people so far, even if I have to work with Wink again

I was thinking about changing up our appreciation dinners. Thinking about the VI for one. Should we do both weekends there this year? Someplace different? I like to give them a heads up that we are coming.

Cool Todd.

Actually for dinner, I have a big gift certificate to use out at Timmy's, so will probably go out there one weekend. Pipe up if you have a preference!

Either place is fine with me. The 25th I will probably be bringing Curt and Floyd also. There is a slim chance that I won't be in the fields the 18th. If not, I will come UP with Kenny that weekend also. As far as I know he is coming by himself.
He has a really big race this weekend with his son driving. Winchester, Indiana. 400 laps on a 1/2 mile track. Live pit stops and all.

I'll be reporting for duty as well on the 25th (with Wink, Griz and SnoPro7c)

Went UP to Grand Marais last weekend on a 4-Wheeler trip. Never dun that before. Despite riding in the rain/drizzle most of the weekend, had a really good time. The leaves were turning and Fall was certainly in the air. The trails look completely different when there's no snow on them

Updated roll call:

Numbers have shifted. Need more people on the 18th now.
We need 2 full signing crews for both dates to cover all of the trails.

18th
Todd
Kenny
(Neil)

25th
Westhouse +1
Ryscamp +1 or 2 slaves
Wink + Son
Griz & Floyd
Kevin & Cathy
(Jimmy D?)

I just built a new signing trailer, so we have 2 good ones now.
All of the power tools have been tuned up and are good to go.
With so many people, looking into a special brushing project for the 25th.

Well, we really kicked butt doing the signing on Saturday. 2 smallish signing crews took care of all the West and North ends. It will be a short day for the crews this Saturday on the signing project.

We are going to go ahead with the Cedarville trail relocate project to make use of what sounds like the biggest volunteer crew we have ever had. We are going to cut the trail some some virgin ground and get it off the shoulder for about 1000 feet. Should be interesting!
