In this issue:

1. Brushing Project on the San Juan and Viejo Tie Trails

2. 2011 Rwanda Ride will be held on Saturday April 30, 2011


Saturday Warrior Society members and volunteers brushed the San Juan trail from Cocktail Rock to the top of the Chiquito Trail. There was much to be done as this trail hasn’t been brushed in many years. With a great turn-out of Club members and a few volunteers we were able to assign four people to do brush work on Viejo Tie, which connects San Juan to the Chiquito Trail. The Viejo Tie Trail is now completely brushed and the San Juan Trail is done except for the last 0.25 miles near Cocktail Rock which we can get with loppers on a bike ride at a future date.

Thank you to the following people who came out on a perfect day to help with this project. It was especially nice to see such a good turn-out since everyone knew that rain is coming in on Sunday. But if you were looking for a work out you got one today. It’s never easy having to hike back up The San Juan Trail after working all day.

Lunch afterwards was the Warriors Society version of an Economic Stimulus plan. Olemendis Mexican Grill at El Toro Road and the 5 freeway was very glad to see us and they may see us again as the food and the service was great.

Thank you:

Vickie Lukina, Ned Reynolds, Gerry Huth, Josh Avila, Erik and Debbie Brown, Larry Harden, Kathy McNeill and Treve Misemer, Keith Parsons, Keith Eckstein, Dwayne Zeigler, Chip Leopard, Eric hull, Reed Price, Bob Hale, Jason and Suzanne Martin, Bob McCarter, Regina Froemmling, Chris Vargas, Gene Frial, Jeff Parrish, Andy Lightle and Heather “Lightle”, Steve Timm and Steve ???.
