NOVEMBER 2nd TRAIL WORK PARTY

 

The workers:  Gene Knox, Ron Russell Sr, Ken MacFawn, Gordon Phillips, Jeff Mayo, Bob Stickney, John Blais, Buddy Bouchard, Chris Dickson, Reggie Bellegarde,

Roger Miller, and Bill French.  Not in the above picture, but also helping out

were Ron Russell Jr. and Louise Stickney

Although the sky was dark and grey, it was a jovial crew that gathered at McDonald's on Sunday, November 2.  The workers were divided into two crews and dispatched to opposite ends of Club Trail 12 between the Milton Road and Route 232 near Thornton's chicken farm.

Brushing out the trails had barely begun when it began to rain.  Everyone continued to work in spite of the dampness.  But two hours later, all were wet, cold, and ready to call it a day.  Even though not as much was accomplished as had been hoped for, it was a great beginning!

What a contrast from the previous Sunday!  Clear skies and cold, wintry air greeted the workers as they gathered at McDonald's.  Once again, two crews were formed and headed out at 8:10 a.m. to complete brushing out the trail from  Milton Road and Route 232.

Ron asks Rob, Bob, and Fern, "Are we having fun yet?"

 

Ron and Fern watch Rob as he reaches for the high branches with the pole saw.

 

Jeff looks like he might be thinking about building a pole raft to get across this water hole, while Gordon decides to circumnavigate, and it looks like Ivan will just ford through with his four wheeler!

 

Scott and Jeff clear the brush, while Gordon and Gary wield the power saws.

The youngest worker ... four-year-old Curtis Gauvin!

 

The two crews meet!  Mission accomplished!

 

Done for the day ... heading home.

Gordon, Roger, John Jr., John, and Ben attack the brush on Trail 12, working from the Andover Road to the Kimball Road.

 

Jim lugged his big saw along the trail and it really

came in handy for trimming down exposed stumps!

 

Gene, Tom, and Fern work on Trail 12 behind the Kimball farm.

The workers:  Gary Clement, Gene Knox, Gordon Phillips, Bob Stickney, and Jeff Mayo.  Not in the photo are Rob Cameron and Louise Stickney.
