The coordinator for the clean-up run March 11th from the Flint Hills Jeep Club is asking for head counts. Due to the fact that there are 4 clubs (plus individuals) that are partaking in this great event they are requesting as accurate of head counts as possible.
If you are planning on attending, please go to our event page and update your status.
Below is the email that was sent to us from the coordinator of this effort. Let's do our part to ensure this goes smoothly. I will be coordinating efforts for our group and will be the point of contact to the FHJC. If you have any concerns or questions, please run them through me and I will either have an answer or will get one for you.
To Just Jeeps of Omaha, Kansas Krawlers, Trail Krawlers 4x4, Wichita 4x4, and Show Me Jeep Club! If at all possible (please), would your clubs be able to provide me an estimated arrival time, number of members, vehicles, and chain saws that you think will be coming for the Tuttle ORV Area Cleanup? Would like to have that info, if available, no later than March 9th. The plan: - All groups and clubs please check in at the ramp at 10 - 10:30 AM and sign in. (FHJC will hold their club meeting at 10 AM in Randolph & arrive when finished, but I will be at the ORV Area no later than 9:30 AM, earlier if needed, depending on when your group plans on being there.) - USACE will have volunteer sign in sheets so everyone’s hours can be tracked – this helps the park show community involvement and assists with additional funds being budgeted for maintenance. Additionally, it extends USACE workmen’s comp coverage to any volunteer in the remote event of injury during cleanup. - We'll break down into teams of 6 – 10 people to cover as much of the ORV Area as possible. - All teams will have a Trail Leader and a chain saw operator (if available); you can designate your own people internally for those, a few "independents" may be added in to plus up the team. - Each team(s) will be asked to cover specific area and/or trails, I'll need your assistance in this since you know the capabilities of your members & their rigs better. - Clear downed trees, brush & branches up to 3' on both sides of trails and 8'-10' above, where possible; trees right at the edge of the trail, just trim all branches in 180 degrees on the trail facing side; trees 2" diameter & below may be removed. - Pick up all visible trash & random parts found, large yellow trash bags will be provided, and will be dropped off at the ramp as you're leaving. - Bonus: any naturally downed trees in the park may be taken for firewood. - Trail Marker Team: with only one set of special tools, we'll make a small team of 4 to 8 people with members from the different clubs so all can share in the work; we'll have more markers for the Aug cleanup. Goal is for all to put in at least 3 hrs of solid work - after that, groups can decide focus more on wheeling for fun, clean as they go, or continue working if desired, and may depart at any time. Note from USACE: “Folks that invest their considerable time, sweat equity, and funds into parks are rare. We recognize and truly appreciate everything you all do!”
Best regards, Troy "The Off-Roads Guy" Speer
