Kettlepalooza 2009

The Red Hawks cycling team will be at regionals in Missouri, but I wanted to spread the word about this great event planned by Randy Wegener. If you're interested, contact Randy at

Hey Everyone,

I know the next few weeks are super busy with MTB races, CX races, etc. but I've got a fun weekend planned for anyone who may be available. Some of you may or may not know that I've been heading up the volunteer trail building effort at Greenbush for the last few years. Last year I organized a trail building day that was quite succesful. We were able to complete loop #3 of the new trail system. This year myself and Gary Lake, who is involved with the Southern Kettles, have joined forces to organize another trail building event but this time it is going to be bigger and better. I've arranged with the Northern Kettle Moraine Forest Superintendent, Jerry Leiterman, to provide our group with complementary camping, shelter use, park passes, and trail passes for October 2nd through the 4th. The weekend will consist of trail building, group rides, bbq, and some fun events. All free to participants who volunteer a few hours of their time to help us try and complete loop #4 of the new singletrack on Saturday morning. This loop has been rough cut by the DNR but it is up to us as volunteers to do the finish work. This will finish the new trail system with a total of approximately 9.5 miles of singletrack. I've listed the itinerary for the weekends events. Whether you can come out for the entire weekend or for just the trail building on Saturday we'd welcome your participation. This is a family event so bring the entire family. If you think you'll attend please drop me a line as we are trying to get a head count for food and whether you'll be bringing children. I appologize if this is a duplicate e-mail for some of you but now that all the times have been secured I wanted everyone to be informed.
