Pop-up trail work at Laurel Mountain

As the forecast looks good for Saturday 9 December, we'd like to take this chance to move some gravel to fill in some low spots on Loop Trail.  We will need a wheelbarrow and some shovels, and with a team of 6 people it should take no more than 2 hours.   Please let us know if you can help and what you can bring.   This will be postponed if the weather changes or if we don't have enough people.  We'd plan to meet at the warming hut at 10am and should be done by noon.  If you like, bring a picnic lunch. 

Thank you!

trail crew

Thanks to the crew of volunteers who helped with the trail work at Laurel Ridge last Sunday (Dec 3) despite the ominous forecast.  We were lucky, the rain held off, and we got the work done.   

The webcams are active

Thanks to Bob and Jim for reinstalling the webcams!  If you still see the 'back next winter' pictures, your browser/phone is showing you cached images, and you need to do a 'hard refresh'.   When it's dark or gloomy, the LR cam takes infrared photos, these are the black & white photos.

Check your email!

40th anniversary pins

To mark PACCSA's 40th anniversary, we have a commemorative enamel lapel pin for each of the first 150 memberships, new or renewed,  since 1st July 2023.  The pins will be distributed at gatherings throughout the year, such as the trail clear this weekend.  Yellowjackets will receive theirs directly from Head Coach Jim South.  If you would like a pin mailed to you, please send us $5 to cover the mailing costs - when you renew your membership online, please add this as a donation and write 'mail pin please' in the volunteer options.   

Kind-a-hard 2024

We will make another attempt at holding the Kind-a-hard classic race at Laurel Mountain in 2024.  The preliminary date for this is Sunday 4 February, with a make-up date of Sunday 18 February.  Note that these dates have not yet been confirmed.
