Sign removal 2020 was a success!


Last weekend (4/18/2020) the Rural Cass club was able to go out in separate vehicles and pick signs. Around a dozen club members helped in the effort and we were able to clear the trail really quickly.  Im sure I am missing a few, but Thanks to Brent, Rod, Spencer, Tim, Derryn, Toby, Michael, Lance and Leighton, Jeff and Ethan and all members that helped the cause!

April 2020 update


We hope this note finds you and your family healthy and happy. 
 
New Business.
 
No meeting this month. We will see if there is a need to get together down the road in person or via ZOOM or something. however, nothing is currently planned.
 
Trail sign removal. we do still need to remove all the trail signs in the near future as farmers will possibly start opening fields in the coming weeks. This will be a little different from years past as we try to follow the distancing rules effectively. The weather for this Saturday, April 18th, looks to be almost 60 degrees, which is quite a change from today! After talking with some of the club’s board of directors, we have decided to try go out on our own, in separate vehicles, to pick-up sections of the trail. We would Love extra help! If you are available anytime this weekend to get out, and get some fresh air and pick some signs, we can find an area for you!
Club Storage Container. with the help of a few club members we were able to get the container moved into place in Argusville last month. Once we are able to get together(hopefully in the near future!) we will set up some evenings or weekends to work on the container and get it prepped for sign storage.

Trail Sign inventory. once signs are removed and things hopefully get back to normal, we will have an evening set to do sign inventory for both north and south loops

Banners/parades. talk of getting 2 banners printed at Short Printer and doing some parades as a group this summer. Main priority would be Cassleton Summerfest, Saturday, July 25th. But would also like to be in any other local events.

We have about half dozen committed to helping so far, would love for that number to double!

just respond to the email or facebook or website if you want to get out and pick some signs!
