BMP Report:
- Don is looking to take a break this summer, and possibly do a rock crawl in Sept. More likely to stay quiet this summer and then hit next year with a full schedule of events
- Please sign up to lend a hand at the rally. Roger is donating his time to run the equipment, we will owe Schessler Ready mix for fuel. We won't have an excavator this year, and we dont have any more trade-out with advertising for exchange. So pit prep will consist of leveling it, pushing the dirt back into the pit and filling it with water. Billings Towing might be doing the pull-outs.
Play day will be a number of fun games. Maybe a tug of war? Bring the kids!
- Ed had 1000 stickers that say “Stay on the Trail or stay home” on them to be distributed around the state. There will be a poker run on Benbow on June 30. Go to FFOR.org for more information.
- Peter is not present
