Greetings:


Not sure if you get down towards Black River Falls or not...I received the following announcement:


"The Clark County Forestry and Parks Department will be holding a meeting with the volunteer club at Knobby Ridge on Monday, August 27th at 7:00 PM . We strongly encourage anyone interested in the future management of this trail system to attend this meeting. The future of the trail system will also be on the agenda for the September 12th Forestry and Parks Committee meeting. This meeting will take place at 9:00 AM in the county board room on the 12th."



The club guys seem to think this might be do-or-die time for KR. The county and the club will meet on the 27th to determine the interest level in KR and then to plan for the future of KR. I realize that most of you are hundreds of miles away and scheduling these meetings during the week makes it tough to attend. If you can attend - great! If you can't attend, please consider sending Clark County a professional and to the point email to show your support for getting KR opened back up again. Please see if your other MX pals will email too.


Brian is the Parks and Program Manager. He oversees the trails: brian.duell@co.clark.wi.us Josh is the Forestry and Parks Administrator. He is Brian's boss: joshua.pedersen@co.clark.wi.us



---Dear______,
---I live ____ miles away. I can't make the meetings because______.
---I have ridden KR
---Please register my support for opening KR again.
---KR is _________ <insert>.
---Please open KR.
---Thank You,



Thanks!

Correct. When the complete loop is up and running it is EXCELLENT imo. 18mi. loop of fairly tight/technical with a cool little sand/moto track near the parking lot. Many have really missed that place...has been shut down now for well over a year.

I did not realize it was shut down! What reason did they use to close it?

I'll be sending an email. Thanks for the heads up, Dave.
