Chainsaw Training
Wanted: 4 to 6 people who can commit to work one day each weekend from
2 Oct thru the last weekend in Nov or early Dec.

Task: Chainsaw work to clear corridor for trail in Phase 3 of Itusi.

Requirements: First you must be certified by State Park by taking a
short competency training / safety class. Second, of the people trained
I will need to have at least two certified chainsaw operators scheduled
and committed to work every work day ( Sat & Sun ) until corridor is
cut.

Purpose: The past two winter work seasons we only had two non-staff
persons chainsaw certified. By having a larger pool of people capable
of clearing work for opening the trail corridor we may be able to speed
up the process of building the trail. This section of land should yield
5 plus miles. We hope to be able to partially cut much of the trail
with mechanized equipment this year due to the large area. We will have
our hands full this year trying to complete this big section.

Contact INFO: Respond ASAP so we can schedule the training date. Use
this group to email your response. You may email me at ;
waterbob@statesville.net . Or you can stop by First Flight Bike shop
and talk with Jeff or Wes.

Thank ya'll . Think about it. Work is scheduled to begin the first
weekend of Oct. We need your response quickly. This is dangerous work.
You will probably need to have steel toed shoes prior to training. All
other safety gear will be provided by the Park.
