Default Brushing & Signing 2015

This thread is your one stop shop for our bushing & signing 2015.

Last year we will announced that unless something strange happens, our official dates will ALWAYS be the 3rd, and 4th Saturday of October. That means that this year it is supposed to be October 17th and 24th.

You guys on this board are the ones that make this happen year in and year out. I could not do it without you, so I will check in to see how everyone is feeling about those dates.



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 or screw gun 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 year we will be looking at making sure all of the signs on the RR Grade are in good shape, as many are tipping and generally need to be replaced.

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.

Shaping up well.

For the 17th:

The crews of Kenny, Todd, Keven, and some new guys from Ohio.

For the 24th:
The grand rapids crews of the Westhouse, Ryskamp families.

I like the split on numbers so far.

Long range weekend forecast is chilly, but no rain. Please plan accordingly.
Hope to get all the Western trails done this Saturday.

Will be heading UP for the 24th. Been helping in the fields off and on and may be working this Saturday. Although I have to say, not much to help with. What a lousy year for the local farmers here.

2 days to go, and because Kenny said he was coming, it looks to be quite chilly, and now they are calling for a chance of rain or snow showers in the morning (only 30%. Dress right, we work rain or shine!

Big thanks goes out there to the kick butt crews from last weekend. I was sick as a dog, and had another job, so I wasn't able to go out and get any pics or anything, but the 2 crews did the whole West end, and the RR grade too. Jimmy said with another crew running we would have had it all done in one day! So it is going to be quick work next Saturday - maybe only will need to run a single crew.

We will get some pics and update the progress when I get a chance.

Made some new friends and hope to see them riding here this winter!

It was nice working with the new guys: Bill, Dave, and Benjamin. They were able do a bit of brushing, signing, and bridge repair during the day. A beautiful day to be in da woods. Once in a while a snow shower would pass through.

Attached are a few pics...

Thanks again for getting the best trails in the state ready for the season!
