Find your name on the crew list below. If you have been listed twice, left off or know someone who has, contact me ASAP at email@example.com. I have included a cell number for your crew chief. Call or text if you are running late or won’t be able to make it.
Note that the crews are meeting in three different places. If you and the person you are riding with are not on crews that are meeting in the same spot, I need to know immediately.
When to Meet – No later than 8:30. Try to get there a few minutes early so the crew chiefs can sort things out.
Where to Meet –
- Crews 1, 2, and 3 will meet at the park-n-ride at Exit 49 in Castle Rock. At the end of the exit ramp, take a left and cross over I-5. The park-n-ride is on the left almost immediately when you cross the freeway.
- Crews 4, 5, 6, and 7 will meet at Lion’s Park in Castle Rock on your way in from Exit 48. About half a mile off I-5, you will see the restroom at the park on the left side of the road, right along the river. When you turn into the parking area, go hard left and you will find plenty of parking space.
- Crews 8 and 9 will meet at the gravel parking area west of Four Corners in Castle Rock. Take Exit 48. At the end of the ramp, head west on Huntington Avenue. Continue until you reach a three-way stop. Take a left onto A Street. Continue across the bridge until you reach a four-way stop. Go straight through the intersection for about 75 yards. The parking area is on the left.
Weather and Clothing – High of 45. Low of 34. Expect showers. Dress for it. Consider bringing two pairs of good gloves. Your vehicle will be nearby if you need to get more clothes.
How Long Will We Be Out? – Until about 1. We plan to go balls-out for four hours. Then it’s time to party.
Tools – If possible bring a handsaw or long-handled loppers and at least one dirt tool (McLeod, Brookski, shovel, rake)
Scope of Work – It’s going to be a shock to the system if you haven’t worked in a clear cut before. We did a general cut-out at the Chainsaw Massacre, but it’s very likely that your section will still have many limbs that need to be picked up to get down to dirt. This is the first order of business. After that, your crew chief will focus on dirt work to improve ride-ability. In some cases, extensive benching will be needed.
Where’s the Party? – Porky’s is in Longview at 561 Industrial Way. We would like everyone to stop by if possible. Good food. Great beer list. Massive end-of-the-year raffle. Heading south on I-5, take Exit 36B to Longview. After about 1.5 miles, take the Third Avenue exit. Left onto Third at the light at the bottom of the ramp. Third swings right and becomes Industrial Way. Porky’s is on the left side. You can follow someone if you are unsure about directions. Bring a change of clothes for the party.
