Tim Watkins Memorial Trail Building Day [updated 10/4/2017]

[EDIT: the correct date is Saturday 10/7/2017  Thanks!]

[EDIT: 10/3/2017  Moved gathering spot and tools request. Please see below.]

On Saturday 10/7/2017 from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM FOMP will hold a trail building day to honor Tim Watkins, our areas most prolific trail builder. We encourage you to join us for all or part of the day. When we are finished we will hold a moment of silence and rename the trail for Tim.

If we complete our project ahead of schedule, we will end early.

We are asking that you please sign up on either our Facebook page or on our Signup GFFenius page, but not on both! We’re trying to get a decent idea of turnout to make sure that we have enough tools and experienced crew leaders on hand.

[Note, location change!] FOMP will meet at the trailhead parking lot at the corner of Mt. Herman Rd. and Red Rocks Ranch Rd. on Saturday 10/7/2017 at  9:00 AM (Google maps: https://goo.gl/maps/2HGyAyeABrT2).

FOMP has partnered with Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates for this event and both organizations will be bringing critical trail building tools. We request that volunteers please bring the following tools if available: Cutter/Pick Mattock, Shovel, Loppers, Rock/Pry bars (5/6 ft), and small handheld outdoor saws.

Volunteers should wear appropriate clothing for the weather and for performing outdoor landscaping type of work. Volunteers should bring leather gloves, a personal water and snack supply, eye protection, sunscreen, and bug repellent. We meet rain or shine unless there is lightning active in the area. If you are joining us late, you can call Chris Tirpak (719.439.8865) or Jon Nordby (719) 640-1347 to get any last-minute information or if you are having trouble finding us.
