Thursday, April 11th, 2013
Trailside Coffee, Crozet, VA
-Introductions: Jessica, Steve, Stu, Phil, Teri, Gayle, Linda, The Bobs
-Widen and clear Crozet Park trail. Bridge construction: Phil reported that it’ll be 68 inches wide and 8 feet long, lumber deliver to Carl’s house and cut there… Either Tues or Wed. Need to figure out a way to secure it, it’ll be level to ground. Dirt or gravel on ends of it. 2×6’s. more work on 4/20.
-Map out/clear the potential 5k route: Crozet park behind and over the Daly property and towards Western Ridge, cross JPT Bridge and to filed and right to Licking Hole Creek and along the creek, then up and around or through property and out onto park land at bottom near Westhall, then trail or road/sidewalk and across new bridge, then Daly property again, then across the park trail again to far end of it for the 3.2 miles.
-Update from Dan: Budget is completed for costs re: Westhall. County ditch witch can be used on Park trail for leveling. Storage… Will discuss further.
-Will wait on Western Ridge bridge etc til hear from their board.
-Mint Springs next winter.
-Crozet Arts & Crafts Festival: May 11-12… VTC table needs staffing Saturday and Sunday. (10-6 both days = 4 2-hour shifts per day x 2 people each shift). PowerPoint with photos?: We want to advertise our CTC Day in October at this May weekend festival. Tell Jessica what shift you want: Bob and Phil yes, Bob S on Sat. Stu will check and let Jess know. Jessica will do a SIGNUP GENIUS? Need 16 people or duplicates. Rally good bands each day. Leslie will try to get us a spot near the power–Steve and Teri have a monitor and Jessica will bring her laptop, power cord, photos into a PowerPoint. T-shirts and maps and take people on the trail. Set up and stuff into car at end of Sat for overnight or Jessica will ask about storage in the Y. Will we get in for free?
-Storage for CTC tools? Nothing yet. Bob sharpened tools. Phil will give Bob the chainsaw. Storage shed? Left at the park? Phil will ask Kelly about shed behind dome, but inside fenced area so there might be key issues. Near the trail? Not too good from a vandalizing perspective. But there might be a dog park down there so more populated some day. Build one for $500 (10 x 12). If bought one for that price it would be plastic junk.
-Tree down on OT trail… Bob will let Dan a message about this before the race.
-Flag pole has a planting area around it and it needs work. This weekend people will dig it out. Phil will take Carl and his truck Sat a.m. To pick up plants… They are all flagged and in Jessica’s name.
-Perimeter trail around the park is moving forward… Will be graded and paved.
-Bob will go forward with the mower if gets the go-ahead. Sale right now for $354. $200 from CTC and The Bobs will split the balance. Unanimously agreed, Bob will but it this weekend.
Next workdays: Saturday, April 20
Meet Meeting: Thursday, May 9th
