Would like to update the club. In the beginning of the year the club had sent letters to all the county commissions informing of them of problems we were having with the county. Commissioner Pendergrass took lead with this and set up a meeting between the Mudcutters and his staff. As a result of this meeting I was able to walk the trail with Head of Parks and Recreation Dave Harner and Senior Supervisor Dave Raybuck. Once they saw the trail system and what we were requesting they were very positive and have been working with us to get these requests approved. So as of today we have three trail extensions approved! Two are in Far east and one is part of Nicks extension. They are also open to numerous other ideas we have such as some trail enhancements on Sunburn Meadow. There are a couple of people who are in the process of summiting ideas for Sunburn Meadow. I will post upcoming work days to build these trails. Thanks to everyone who has helped make this possible. (Commissioner Pendergrass, Dave Harner, Dave Raybuck, Rob Bagans, Connie, Steve Mitnick, Me, and everyone else who took the time to attend the meetings).
