April 2023 meeting recap

The club met April 12, 2023 at the Avon Library. Here’s a recap…
Our spring cleanup event will be Saturday, April 15, 9am – 3pm. Meet at the Dotsero truck parking area. We’ll have an opening safety briefing and disperse from there. Please bring a sack lunch, water, shovel, rakes, buckets, appropriate shoes, long pants, and gloves. This event is cosponsored with Hi County 4 Wheelers from Glenwood and the BLM Colorado River Valley Field Office in Silt.

We’ve scheduled a two-day intro recovery training from Bill Burke for May 6-7 in Grand Junction. The fee will be $325 for the vehicle and driver, and $125 per additional passenger. Preference for registration was given to those in attendance at the meeting. The remaining 2 vehicle spots will be first-come, first-served on the website. Registration will open later today and will be posted on the Facebook page. Membership is required to participate.

We’ve reserved the group camping pavilion at Rancho del Rio for the nights of July 14 & 15. Registration will be posted soon. The fee will be $85 for the weekend which includes camping (tent, RTT, or truck-bed camper), usage of the resort facilities (boat launch, picnic pavilion, etc), and a Saturday night cookout. You’ll need to book your own site if you are bringing an RV or tow-behind camper. During the day the group will self-organize for trail runs. More details to follow.

The club approved the purchase of D&O insurance based on the provided quote once the funds are verified to be available.

A follow-up chat thread will be created to refine our waiver ASAP.

A members-only Facebook group has been created for internal club discussions. Please contact a board member if you are not added and have a current membership.

Going forward club meetings will be the 3rd Thursday of the month, with the goal of alternating between the Eagle and Avon libraries. Once we have reserved the room, the USFS Holy Cross office will be invited to the next meeting.
