Ride Report: The Red River trip back in July There was only a small handful that went. Sorry we had to miss it. Maybe next time. Those that went, did the 505 south and North and some side trails as well.
The Steak ride was attended by 26 members for the day. We had two sets of leaders, do to 50” for the trails and those wider than 50” another rout. The food was amazing. And the head BBQers did a great job with steaks. Thank you everyone.

Trail work: Thursday the 15th Todd and Dean were scheduled to go to McComas Meadows to try out the DR. Something came up and Todd could not make it. But Dean, Bob M. and Ken W. went and opened up trails. They cut out 19 trees from 4:45-7:00. They will be going back up to do the brushing and try out the DR.
As for New Business: Todd ran across a good deal for a tandem axle dump trailer. The club has a single axle trail, but for some of the big jobs we have. We are needing a bigger trailer. So the club voted and passed to by the trailer for $800. The trailer has the upgraded tires and wiring.
