Anyone interested in picking up where the ROAM movie benefit left off?

The place could use some TLC in 2007.
Each time we spent time on the jumps they were designed for advanced riders and did not last.
Suggestion:

-Build low table tops like the ones at Tamarack


-Let the Big Boys Build big jumps they can maintain at Velo Park Eagle

and


-Rocks in the dirt at Willow Lane can be filtered by hand or with equipment
Ussery Mud it is not.


-Build Beginner lines- Schedule Periodic weed clean up days
The Rail Fence is up and kids use it to learn. Let's not let this place die.

I know a bunch of people who would like to help but probably wont. There is still the problem of river trash and kids who don't care about it destroying the place. I know swimba tried to address the problem last year, but what has been done and is it really worth everybody's time? I'd like to help but am reluctant when I know it will take 40+ man hours to build a line and some idiot 15 minutes to destroy it.:madman:
Ian...any word on swimbas direction? Maybe abandon willow and try somewhere new. Ussery has potential but is it legal?
Id like to see willow running, and am willing to put in time, but I don't want to see it abandoned and useless by June. If we are going to put in the time again this year why not make it last all season.

I personally think Willow is too frustrating to bother with. I'm going to put my money and time on the Idaho Velodrome and Cycling Park Project. Better location, better neighborhood, and less white trash to completely f*ck up hours of hard labor just to make those crappy jumps rideable. Not to mention the lousy ass dirt they imported to make Willow. Dust, trash, and cobbles don't make a for good workable soil.

Hate to be negative but that's how I see it. In addition, everyone says they are willing but folks only committed to one day and that was it. I'd rather them just restore the site and we can start over at the Velopark.

when will work start at the velopark as far as the dirt stuff? I'm assuming we won't have anything rideable till mid-late summer?

Go for it. I'm just saying that I'm not willing to bother with it. If you want a beginner set of jumps out there then let the beginners make their jumps. Expert lines never hold together out there due to the all the white trashlings playing army and meth lab on the lips.

The Velo Park is will probably start in April. We should have all out Dirt stuff completed, for the most part, by June. I'm not sure where you pulled mid to late summer from Tervor. Must be your magic ego ball, I mean eight ball.;)
