Club Meeting
Wednesday July 14th, 6:30pm to 9:00pm - Meeting, Moose Lodge #1548, 2200 Pratt Street, Longmont, CO 80501. Open to all members and guests.

The lodge is one street west of main, between 21st and 23rd on Pratt Street. We'll be in the north hall. Folks who arrive early will need to enter at the main entrance, take the 2nd left, off the lobby, enter the middle hall and continue north to the north hall. The front door is a key card door but there is a button for the bar tenders to open the door. Those that arrive early can prop the door open on east side of the north hall so folks can park on the east side of the building and enter through that door.

  • Vic W proposed making a geo-cache in memory of TRR members that have passed away. Need to work with someone in the club that is familiar with creating geo-caches. Gordon has done some research on placing a geo-cache on Forest Service lands and is waiting for a reply from Boulder Ranger District. Jim C proposed it be placed at Coney Flats.

  • Review of the Miller Rock trip. Some are going around the north obstacle and damaging the log that is holding the road in place. We have made a proposal to the Forest Service to put in gabion rock cages to fix the issue of the road support and the bypass. The south obstacle that we repaired is doing well. We still need to sign the roads on the south side.
  • Motion to close meeting by Greg B, second by Wanda C.
