North Meck Update
The North Meck maintenance got a big shot in the arm on Wednesday, as Joe Gibbs Racing and their No. 20 Home Depot sponsorship made a $100 contribution for the purchase of needed materials. Special thanks go to JD Gibbs for his enthusiasm toward the betterment of the park!

Next Monday (July 21) we will be installing sacrete and gravel at the upper powerline crossing. We will be inserting piping to assist in water flow through this problem area. The technique has been used successfully by Doug Satterwhite's team at Francis Beatty, so we are hopeful that we'll realize the same benefit at North Meck.

The trail crew continues to grow, as we had upwards of 10 individuals assist us this past Monday, coming from as far south as Mint Hill, and as far north as Lincolnton. Several of our crew have been working the trail in small groups outside the Monday nite work sessions, and for that we certainly are appreciative.

I have held preliminary talks with the Huntersville ranger in charge of the park concerning possible trail expansion in the future. More details will follow.
