Pot luck at the meeting this month, Food was GREAT! As usual.
There were 31 members/guests in attendance.
The park received some comment cards from week-end camper/riders and they were all very good and they were impressed with the horse camp. The campers were from Michigan and Canada. All the people who put in time and hard work should be proud!
Jeremy, the Director of Parks was a guest at the meeting; he has made arrangements for the park to donate a load of gravel for use at the horse camp. He also said the park maintenance will mow the camp on a regular basis this summer. Jeremy thanked our guys for all the work that they have done on the 10 new stalls. The park’s new web site is up and running. Mountwoodpark.org. the Park is also trying to GPS the trails and need our help.
The connecting trails have not worked out, so the grant money had to be returned. The park is trying to use Oil Springs road as a connecting trail to Rails for Trails. This road comes out at Petroleum, right at the Rails trail.
All the camping spots are reserved for the Memorial weekend. Day riders are still welcome.
There will be a covered dish dinner on Saturday night at 5pm. The games will begin at 6pm and we will have a campfire at the lower camp at 8pm.
Some of the members have offered to lead trail rides on a small group basis, to help everyone to get to know the trails and the time it takes to ride a trail. This is a great opportunity to learn about the camp, come take advantage!
Mel has been working on rerouting and adding some new signs.
The club now has brochures for the quilts; call Barb if you want tickets to sell 740-525-8511 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Mel announced that there have been stolen miniature horses in the sugar camp area, and 3 horses turned up in a yard in that area.
