The other BIG change is Sunday morning -- no King and Queen of Rock's Ridge. Instead, we're having the "IRONCLIMBER" competition. Unhuh-- the fastest person to the top of the GATE at Ironmine/Wolf Pond road wins. And what do you win? A nice set of bike nuts. Hey… if you have balls enough to conquer that climb at a break-neck speed, you deserve the balls! Pink for the girl and blue for the boy.
Here's a quick run-down of the weekend's festivities:
Thursday - 5:00 - Gate Opens to Camp Muckleratz

SPRING GOBBLER (Bearded bird only): Special season for eligible junior hunters, with required license, and mentored youth – April 24, 2010. Only 1 spring gobbler may be taken during this hunt.
SPRING GOBBLER (Bearded bird only): May 1-31, 2010. Daily limit 1, season limit 2. (Second spring gobbler may only be taken by persons who possess a valid special wild turkey license.)
Also, the monstrous tree at the top of Rattling Creek Trail is now gone. We'll keep plugging away at what we know are nuisance trees that need cut out. As an FYI, we're letting many this time around so you can practice your log hopping skills. If you know of trees that definitely need the chainsaw, please leave a comment. Thanks!

Our next meeting for the Friends of Weiser state forest will be held Wednesday April 14 at 6:30 in the park office at Haldeman tract. Marci Mowery from PA Parks & Forests Foundation will be there to tell us what we need to do to organize under their umbrella. What that will do for us is it will put us under their 501c plan so any donations will be tax deductible to the donor. And we would also be eligible to apply for grants. They will also handle all money for us. But we must meet certain requirements which she will explain. But one of the requirements is that we have a diverse organization made up of hikers, bikers, horsemen & anyone else who might use our state forest. So if you know anyone who might be interested in joining us please invite them. Please let Jim know of groups so he can invite them also. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know. Jim Theurer, 717-433-8694 or mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">jimbob113@hotmailthanks.

We hear there are trees down. Don't worry, we'll get at them! Rick and I are planning a hike with the chainsaw on Doc Smith to start the clearing process.
There's going to be a trail building class sometime in the spring. The class is being coordinated by the Equine groups and the PA Equine Assoc is presenting the class. We'll post more info as it becomes available.
FYI - August 22 is the Rattling 50 Marathon. In the past, the club has not participated in this event because the majority of members had concerns of trail degradation from a race. That was three years ago and times have changed with more users on the trail (horses). If anyone wants to help out with the Marathon, please let me know and I'll let the organizer know.
