"Area 51" new trail status - We are waiting on the US Army COE to approve the Master Plan.

Once this is all completed, trail construction can start. Tentative construction start dates are February-March 2007.

Upcoming SORBA Main Meeting - John will be attending the SORBA main meeting on behalf of SORBA Woodstock. He will bring the chapter back information from the meeting.
