Trailwork-Sat. Feb 11
All are welcome to join a trail work party for the new Cloverpatch Connector trail this Saturday. We’re setting aside the bridgework for the moment and focused on building the trail out to a second big bridge site and can use as many hands as possible.
We meet up at the Lowell Covered Bridge at 9:00am and drive to the work-site from there. Or if you live in Oakridge, you can meet us at the quarry near the bottom of Cloverpatch Trail off of road 5826.
We will be building new trail in rugged country on steep side slopes. Wear appropriate gear for working in the woods in winter, including sturdy shoes, long pants, gloves, hardhat and extra layers of clothing. Tools and hardhats will be supplied if needed. Bring some food and water to get you through the day.

New Year-New Names
To start off the new year, the club will be changing the names of a few trails to make things more mainstream at Carpenter Bypass. They will at some point be officially adopted by the BLM. Here are the changes:
Your Sister becomes: Uno Mas (top to bottom-including Mom’s Muffins)
Soft Opening becomes: Whole Nine Yards (just more of it)
Fun Girl Becomes: Fun Times
Mini Skirt Becomes: It’ll Be Great (favorite term used by Chuck Long-who tragically passed away riding at Carpenter’s Bypass)
Eric’s Hole Becomes: Eric’s Drop
