this has happened a lot over the years in the 'Shed. Hope it's not a trend here.
THEFT FROM VEHICLE: A vehicle was broken into Dec. 10 while it was parked on Michaux Road within the state forest.
Pennsylvania State Police, Carlisle, said the front passenger side window was broken out of the vehicle belonging to David Miller of Middletown. His wallet and GPS device were reportedly stolen.

'Twas a nice day for a ride, 'twasn't it?
Showed a newbie some of the wonders of the 'chaux this morning. Hope he comes back for an encore. The crusty snow cover was an unexpected and pleasant surprise.
Here's to hoping we see an inch or two of the freshy fresh on a night ride real soon...

I've received club logo and sponsor logo files from Sue and from Morgan Styer. Mixed bag of stuff--.PDF, .AI, .JPG, etc. If anyone wants them to use, please let me know either here in a comment or via email.
The .AI formats are good for design work, if you have Adobe Illustrator or something similar.

Other than that, I know that my records are not up to date.
I am urging anyone who has pulled any additional hours of trail work to please list them under a comment below.
Be sure to include your name, approximate dates and trail names or at least the area in which the trails are located.

We had 20 at the start from bigflat. After a mechanical-filled ride down new-wildcat and abby to the reservoir we ended up shedding a few. And yes, Mooch ended up submarining off breast after whacking his head on 'the' limb. Sue saw the whole thing -- totally jealous!
Climbed lollipop after picking up a newcomer (el pres), and descended camp and back up to the lot. 4 of us then continued and did 3mile and deerbingo and (after dennis blew past jakes) climbed 7, couldn't find happyhr, scared a dog, got yelled at, got flicked-off, rode creektrail, climbed bigflat atv.
Over 30 with more mechanicals than I care to recount.
Trails in good condition, with the exception of the middle of 7.

I`ve ridden the past two evenings and our trails are a mess.
I wouldn`t even be interested in riding from Mont Alto again until the trails are cleared. We spent as much time bushwacking and clearing debris as we did riding tonight.
I propose that we pull a trail work session next Thursday evening, 5pm at Mont Alto. CHAINSAWS will be necessary along with loppers n such.
Mont Alto alone is going to take several work days to clean up and this is just the begining. We have an entire forest full of trails to clear. So, grab your tools, headlamps and beverages and be there next Thursday!

I know, a little crazy. I'm going to see Dana Carvey on Thurs, so how about Wed night at 6 from the Reservoir (is that what your plan was, Howard?).
I guess the Thurs will stay Mont Alto at 6.
Wed, 6 at Reservoir
Thurs, 6 at Mont Alto

Me and four other like-minded fellows took advantage of the decent temps and the break in the rain to get in a good-natured and fun ride.
IPA's at the top before descending the techy sketch is always a good idea, right?
Left to right: CB aka "Mooch", Brian aka "Slow", Ho' aka "Faster than you", Scott aka "Huey-Hoff"; the man behind the camera - drw aka "Cosmo"
I always forget how fun it is to ride in the dark. Come on out and enjoy the fall temps.

I thought I'd go and represent MBM - there has been a decision made by your officers to contribute $50 of MBM's fortune. Would anybody like to ride the skinnies with me?
Will be a little chilly at the start, but looks like the weather will be relatively nice. Let me know, I'd love some company.

We currently have 2 and one on the hook at the $250 price point.
Please share if you know anyone who would want a $250 or $500 advertisement with a FREE JERSEY! Of course the $500 or more would have larger size and better placement! We can always work something better for more money!

Good luck to all that are racing
I rode down Yellow ridge today and someone put in some much needed water bars on the down hill at the end. But be aware the water bars are really big and if you hit the first one at speed you'll be in the air for a long time. So start to slow before the down hill and check things out. If you like to catch BIG air go for it.

POSTING FOR BEN SMITH
Very nice singlespeed 29r with a very nice component spec:
$800 local special - if you pick it up, otherwise price is as stated below.
I have used this bike for about one season. I built it mid season about last year this time. I bought the frame from Performance bike and then sent it out to be powder coated translucent burnt orange. The frame and parts are in great shape with just the normal cable rub and small scuffs. The left crank arm has some marks from hitting rocks but nothing that affects the function. The part spec is as follows:
Frame: Access custom powder coated (size LARGE)
Fork: Manitou Minute ABS+
Cranks: Truvativ 1.1
Pedals: Sealed bearing platform
BB: Eccentric Forward Components (no tensioner needed w/ vertical d.o.'s)
Wheels: RB Design hubs w/ WTB rims and alloy nipples
Tires: front Schwalbe Racing Ralph, rear Kenda Nevegal w/ puncture resistance liners in both
Brakes: Hope Mono Mini w/ custom one finger levers,185/160 rotors (I will also include the stock ones)
Stem: Ritchey WCS
Handlebar: Ritchey Carbon
Seatpost: Ritchey Carbon
Grips: ODI Lock-on
The seatpost has a crack in it so I'm also including a alloy one. I have been using this post since I built the bike with no problems. I will also include two sets of brake pads and two tires. One Schwalbe Racing Ralph (has a small cut in the side wall) and one new Maxxis Ardent. Asking $1000 and I will drive to meet anyone within 3 hours of Chambersburg, PA. Shipping is available though.

We had a blast last year tho I aged years doing it - not sure how these real promoters sleep at nite. Anywho, its a fun course with super fern-age and maybe a surprise or too if the park allows me : )
More info on bike reg:
The race course is mostly rolling with roots and few rock gardens. If you want to make it a weekend there are more super technical and 'rustic' trails, just let me know.

The voices opposing this need to be heard. It's telling that the article only refers to "hikers and bird-watchers" as other user groups joining the side against Sunday hunting. No mention of mountain bikers or equestrians.
The pro-Sunday hunting advocates are pushing the economic benefits, but do they mention how much money will be lost through other users staying home, out of state tourists not coming in duringthe fall and leaf-peeping seasons? What negative impact might that have?
Evans, the sponsor of the bill, says that he was "presented with the facts" but by whom? The groups pushing for Sunday hunting. Those "facts" are slanted to achieve the desired ends. What are all the facts?
If you haven't sent a message stating your opinion on this yet, please do so. If you have, you might consider sending it again.

Check it out HERE. It's a short and sweet bill--two pages.
Excerpts from the text:
"Amending Title 34 (Game) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, permitting hunting on Sunday.
The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania hereby enacts as follows:
Section 1. Section 2303 of Title 34 of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes is repealed:
[§ 2303. Hunting on Sunday prohibited.
(a) General rule.‑‑Except as otherwise provided in this title, it is unlawful for any person to hunt for any furbearer or game on Sunday."
"Section 2. Title 34 is amended by adding a section to read:
§ 2303.1. Hunting on Sunday.
(a) General rule.‑‑It shall be lawful for any person to hunt for any furbearer or game on Sunday as provided by regulations promulgated under subsection (b).
(b) Regulations.‑‑The commission shall institute Sunday hunting and shall promulgate appropriate regulations under section 2102 (relating to regulations) within one year of the effective date of this section."
You can use this link to find who your House Representative is to send them your position on this bill. If you do, make sure to reference HB 1760 in the subject line and/or body of the email.

This issue has been coming up in the news for the past few weeks.
The PA Farm Bureau appears to be bringing it up in anticipation of a move by the state to allow the game commission to make these decisions. At least that's what I've gathered.
Sounds like there was an attempt to pass a bill in '09 that failed. But I guess giving the decision to the game commission would allow a change without having to pass a bill?
Please discuss . . .
