F&F Trail Donation

We have $2000, since it is much more then originally thought, how do we spend it?

Signs we need to order soon I imagine good custom ones would take some time to get.
I like Colin's pavilion roof idea too, but I'd like to see more benefit to trails.

I think the roof is a good idea, especially if it meant we got to spraybomb the nac logo on the underside for all the other clubs to look up at and be thankful for when it's surely pouring out as it does during every event there :laugh:

Are you that artsy with a spray can? I ain't.

Nope. I'm sure someone is though, or we can get screenprint type stencils printed to use? Ha idk. But the roof would be a good a appreciated by all type of thing. I'm sure if nac paid for it entirely (no idea what it would cost) bob wouldn't care at all if we also put a little plaque or something on a post "roof donated/built by nac chapter of Naxja", which might be something a ton of people would see, might promote traffic/membership here, whatever.

Have we asked what Bob and Liza want? I bet they'd know best as to what the place needs.

Yup I texted them right before the holidays and Bob said he'd get back to me when he gets back from visiting his family which I'm imagining is sometime this week.

Thoughts of what exactly we are getting for this yet?
It may take some time to arrive...

I pinged them a week ago asking when they had time to talk about this. They didn't have time. I'll keep pinging them and let you know.

It's also going to take a long time for all this to melt and us to be able to get in there and do some work anyway, so it's not a big deal.

I think the biggest things would be UV and cold resistant.

So Liza sent me this:

Liza said:
Hi Colin...I'm sorry, I keep meaning to get back to you. Basically I get stuck trying to work in a NAXJA workday to our already pretty busy schedule. The NEA is doing a maintenance day on May 9. I have mixed feelings about having an official NAXJA thing on the same day, but maybe that could work. After that it will be tough to get in there. Thoughts?
What do you guys think?

May 9th isn't ideal for me either but it is what it is at this point.
That doesn't give us very much time to get custom signs made either...

Colin did you ever get the list from Liza?
Still looking for a name of a guy who can do street signs. Anyone else?

Re: F&F Work Day Spring 2015

So Bob/Liza admittedly dropped the ball a bit on getting the list of signs back to us and he apologized.

He also asked that if the NEA doesn't, can we throw some money down for gravel for the campground? It would be to fill in the low spots/culverts/etc. as far as I know.

He wasn't sure if we could use trail money for campground maintenance. I told him I'd talk to you guys first. The only issue is that then we have less money for signs.

I'm not against maintenance of the campground (keeping access to the trails open), but using the money for upgrading the bathhouse or something like that would be against the intended use I think.

Re: F&F Work Day Spring 2015

I have no problem if we have money left over from the signs but in my mind the money was intended for trail useage and maintenance.

IDK, not to be harsh but I kinda see anything to do with the campground as his business. He says it all the time you pay to camp and he lets you wheel.

This, unless its used to fix the low spots in the roads, not campsites

Makes sense, I agree with you guys.

I'll talk to Bob and push for the signs and that we'd rather use it specifically for the trails.

BUMP! Any news on what Bob & Liza want/need? Bridge repairs, new signs, etc.
