Old Business

  • The National Trails Day Event, June 1, routes have been checked. There are a few open spots on the workers list.  The directions seem complete with the map so minimal trail marking will be needed.
  • Kaki Kesterson has submitted directions for new Kent walks. They are 3 loops of varying distance and difficulty.  Several members took directions to try the walks out and critique at the June meeting.

New Business

The Hudson’s Bay Event August 18 (Sunday) Pathfinder ad has been submitted.  Working on the trail starts June 5 (after the June walk is completed).
