Update from the President — February, 2018
At the January 4th Board meeting, 20 equestrians showed up to express their commitment to continuing GDETF and to the on-going support of trails, Dru Barner Park, and the work we do for both. In view of this strong support for GDETF continuing, we will not be dissolving or merging with another equestrian group. We will, however, seek to work more closely with the other area horse groups like GCER, DHA, Back Country Horsemen, and others interested in helping with Dru Barner campground and developing and maintaining trails on the Divide.
Laurie Sweeny, Cindy Twyman, Mike Petri (in consultation with daughter Mikaela), and Tracy Brown were elected to serve on the Board with Janice Myers, Jenny Gomez, Cathy Rohm, Terri Jimison and myself.
Ann Blankenship has again agreed to manage the Fun Ride this year with others on the committee contributing in various ways including food, raffle, and PR. This ride might be the best one yet! We’ll have ride entry forms out to you soon.
Dru Barner campground looks great. A new set of Powder River corrals were installed by a Boy Scout troop on February 2-3. They will also repair a single corral that was damaged by a fallen tree this past winter. Another single Powder River corral will be installed later.
March is the time to become a member/renew your membership and support GDETF in our continued dedication to preserving, creating, maintaining, protecting and advancing recreational trails for present and future use. Membership forms will be out soon. Our monthly board meetings are the first Thursday of each month. We meet at 6:30 to socialize with the formal meeting started at 7pm. All are welcome as are snacks to share. E-mail us for more information GDETF2@gmail.com
