Saturday morning we had a great crew of 20+ of us there to groom and trim the Lake Ahquabi trails for next weekend's race.  In spite of an unexpected morning thunderstorm that dumped some rain, we were able to hold the 9-12 work call as scheduled.

Tara and I got up early and made scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausage.  Fresh onions and green bell peppers from our garden got chopped up in the eggs, and we loaded the eggs and meat into our 2 crock pots to take out to the Beach House Shelter to plug them in and keep them warm. Fresh bagels and cream cheese, fresh cinammon rolls, coffee, and orange juice rounded out the breakfast buffet for the volunteers.

Pick a tool!

The CITA trailer was in the shop on Saturday getting the lighting re-wired, so Brian Sheesley took enough tools out of the trailer for our work call and I loaded them up in the back of the Element.

We had a list of things to tackle on the trail from erosion, to trimming, to grooming, to tree cutting all in an effort to get the course ready for next weekend.  So everyone took on a task and we had at it.

Thanks to Kim, Sue, Nick, Bob, Pete, David, Jason, Rick, his daughters, Andy, Tom, Andre, Rob, Cheryl, Tara, Christine, Ron, Al, Bruce, Joe, and Stephen - we got the trail groomed and ready for The Mullet Fall Classic.  The trail was riding fast by Saturday afternoon, and after a lap on Saturday, and one on Sunday - I did a few more hours of trimming and grooming to dial in everything for this coming weekend.

The prizes are ready.  The awards are here.  The Schwag is here.  The potluck is organized.  The course is groomed.  All we need is you for The Mullet Fall Classic.  A reminder to get registered online this week to save yourself some money.  The link is over in the right column of this blog.
