    Default 2021 Workday Schedule

    The scheduled workdays for 2021 are Saturday & Sunday, January 30 & 31, Saturday, May 15, Saturday, September 25, and Saturday, November 6. They will all be regular full work days starting at 8 am. During the months of workdays the monthly meeting will take place at Zars Ranch during the workday instead of on the second Tuesday night.

    Work crews and assignments start promptly at 8 A.M. Zars Ranch will be closed to play riding during work hours on the work days. Bring your bike, ATV, loppers, chainsaws, work gloves, work boots, etc. I repeat 'Bring your bike or ATV'. All work days are full days and run from 8 A.M to no later than 4 P.M. with an hour lunch break at noon. Bottled water will be provided. A lunch will also be provided by the club.

    The work days will be held as scheduled come rain, shine, burning hot, or freezing cold. The only way a work day would be canceled would be if the San Antonio river overflowed to the point that the roads to Zars were under water.

    You do not have to make a reservation to come to the work day, just show up ready to work. Make sure you sign in when you arrive to get credit for your workday. Also please make sure we can read your writing to eliminate any questions. Sometimes I can't read my own writing so please help us out. Thanks, Carl.

    While we encourage you to try and make the work days we know that sometimes timing doesn't work out for you. There is always something at Zars that can be done and we can still use your help. If your schedule doesn't allow you to make the planned work days, contact the land manager, Jeff Seely, about work that can be done on your available time.

    Very successful work weekend. Figure turnout of 60 folks on Sat and 25 on Sun. The pink and orange trails have been reversed and some rerouting done. Mucho bueno to all who put equity in our work days. Trails are the cleanest of face and body slappers that they've been in a long time. Also the gate lock has been changed to the 2021 one. If you haven't renewed, you've waited too long. If you signed up pro-rated last year (2020), then you need to exchange your key for a 2021 one.

    Also be aware there is a race weekend at Zars sometime in late Feb so no open riding that weekend but club members can still enter the property and no fee to spectate.

    Also know that the race course is currently be laid out at Zars and marked with dark blue ribbon. Do not treat this as an official marked DBSA one way trail. It will remain two way up until race day.

    Fair turnout (at least initially) for the May 15th workday. Not sure how much was accomplished overall. I know my work crew of three (me, Don, and Paul) cleared several downed trees and sections of trail. Started raining at noon and didn't let up. We tossed in the towel a bit before 2. Enough rain had fallen to make conditions for getting around and trying to work hazardous.

    Anyway, thanks to all who came out and helped. It all counts in the end to keep our trail systems a safe place to ride.

    Sep 25th workday. Turnout was around 40 which is fair for this club. Weather was most excellent all day. Lots of trail clearing taken care of. Should make the riding safer and a bit more enjoyable. Saw a number of new faces out at Zars. Thanks to all who came out and worked.

    I just have a general idea of how many folks showed up for previous work days, but yesterday it seemed like more than normal.

    Hope a lot got done on the trails. Wish I'd been out there clearing trail with you folks. Hopefully by the next work day I'll be able to.

    I replaced one receptacle, re-wired another one, drove the tractor/shoveled some dirt and covered the electrical feed. That one we covered with wood a few years back. I (with our Treasurer) went and got the pizza also. Also researched some future electrical projects. It all wasn't a big contribution, but it was about all I could do.

    I just can't let this one pass by without commenting on it. Picture this. At the club meeting on the workday, part of the discussion was how to go about donating hours of your time to another member. Stuff happens from time to time and folks have valid reasons for not being able to get in all of their required work hours. The current procedure for donating hours was laid out. So quite a few of us bust our humps and make every work day we can plus doing extra work on the side. All to the betterment of the club and our facilities.

    Now picture someone asking one of our members to donate hours because 'they like to drink on Fridays and don't like to have to get up on Saturday to come put their hours in'. It's a good thing I wasn't the one who was asked because I would have had some choice words to say. I didn't name names in this post but this person is a prime example of the kind of person our club doesn't need IMO.

    It never fails as the end of the year approaches, some folks will do all kinds of gyrations trying to get around the work hour requirement. I have no sympathy to give.

    O.K. Rant mode off.
