Note from the race director June 30, 2010:

I worked on the Rhododendron Trail, Wild Turkey Trail, Dogwood Trail, and part of the Rocky Trail leading down to the pavilion. Also cleaned up the new trail leading to the pavilion. If anyone is willing to do any trail work, Red Cardinal and Deer Trail needs to be cleaned.

The course will be marked and ready for pre-riding around Tuesday, July 6th.

Thanks so much, Jason Martin
