11/05/07 Warrior’s Society News

In this Warrior’s Society 2008 event update:

1. The fires effect on our 2008 events

2. “The Traverse” event update


Fortunately the fires have had minimum effect on our 2008 schedule of Events; the fires did not reach any of the single track trails. Debra Clark, the Forest Service Trails Manager, emailed me to let me know that as a precautionary measure the Fire Authorities apparently bulldozed a firebreak straight down to the bottom of the Silverado Motorway and not on the existing trail as we originally were told. They also created another access from Harding to Main Divide road as well. We will be working with the Forest Service to re-vegetate these areas to protect against erosion.

We had planned to perform a trail work event brushing the Trabuco Trail but we had to cancel this work when the forest was closed due to the fires.


Registration for the 2008 “The Traverse” event will opened last Thursday, November 1st and so far we have filled 82 of the 175 positions in the event.
If you intend on participating in the event it is important you register soon as we expect this event to sell out. Our 3rd event of our 2008 season, the Toad Festival Race and Fun ride, will open for registration on December 1st.
