National Trails Day - HKSP work party/picnic
Thank you to Choose Columbia County, GA for supporting our HKSP work parties by donating two brief bags o'schwag. Each bag, with shoulder strap, contains an insulated mug, pedometer, padfolio, money/keyholder, pen, and a few more goodies.
SORBA-CSRA appreciates the generosity of the Columbia County Convention & Visitors Bureau as we repair Lakeview Loop at HKSP. Please be sure to RSVP at www.surveymonkey.com/s/PCK3JKQ
Great turnout this weekend, and kudos to those involved in planning the day, everything ran very smoothly from what I could tell. Each group got out to their section of trail easily enough, got the work done, and got back right around 12:00 for lunch. Here's a few pics, more on the Southern Wheelworks Facebook page.
Daniel must have moved while I took this panorama pic, his legs don't actually look like that.

We had an awesome turnout for National Trails Day at Hickory Knob Resort State Park. When all was said and done, we had 72 volunteers who volunteered over 250 hours in support of SORBAcsra's effort to repair Lakeview Loop.

Thank you to GoneRiding.com for supporting SORBAcsra with their generous, and unsolicited, donation of the XTERRA Clemson entries.
As we were leaving the work party I commented that what we needed was just some nice steady rain to cement in the work we had all just done. If there was not a deluge then the rain we received will be perfect for settling in the trail after we disturbed the tread in spots. If however we received a deluge of 6 inches there will probably be a little tidying up needed on some of the parts we repaired! It is showing .39 inches for yesterday (so through midnight) and that system coming across had a forward slant to it so would have reached McCormick before it reached us around 2am, hopefully that is the bulk of what they got up there!
