I Played disc there last night, one of the new holes is gone. a bulldozer went through the woods and cleared everything in its path, trees, etc. What's up with that? The path is over 35 feet wide and nothing is left but dirt.
When it rains, it is going to be a mud bog.

the bulldozed path is near the the south(?) end back toward Armar.

EDIT: looks like they are taking the walking trail by hole number 18 and if heading south, it is going to turn right and go toward armar, through the woods.

Since Beverly is unrideable today and if hard rain holds off...

Go ride Thomas. Riding is would do it some good while it is soft. Even after the rain last night, I highly doubt it is "unrideable."
Keep in mind, connected sections are still under a mile, so do a few laps, ride the multipurpose trail to the end and back and ride it again :)

Had a great ride at Thomas :D The 1st Loop was perfect even after the rain last night. It is getting packed very nicely. I had to skip the Ravine Loop and settled for the 1st Loop do to the Ravine Loop being fresh, fairly unridden and not very packed yet.

The gnats where crazy :scared-yipes: I didn't have protective glasses on b/c there aren't any eye-whips to worry about, but I never imagined that I would be cleaning a gnat out of my eye every 30 seconds! I must have killed at least 30,000 gnats with my face alone, not to mention how many where flattened on my chest, arms and legs.
