Western Gateway Bike Workday
Onsite reporting by Bob Kline
Wow !  What a great turnout for the initial Bike park site prep this Saturday.  At least 30 BONC members and about 20 other bike sympaticos.  One family came all the way from Truckee.  Joanie, Carle, Debbi and Lindy showed to lend a hand in the clearing, cutting, raking and sawing trees, shrubs and accumulated leaves, etc.  A lot was accomplished with 6 chain saws, 2 macerators. a stumper and 2 branch eaters.  There were plenty of tools  for volunteers (Rakes, hand saws. loppers, shovels and trimmers) so it was pick your tool and follow the team leader’s instructions.  Safety briefs were conducted before we started and all had to sign liability releases for the Park. By 3 PM, it was clear that all tracks were clear enough to meet the finish contractor’s start up requirements.  With BONC and parental permissions, Carle took lots of video for future editing and broadcast on TV channel 11.   It was super-successful. More to follow soon.
