Tomorrow is the Nam trailday. Even if you only have a couple hours to spare, we could use the help.

Hope to see you out there, we've got a lot of really cool things up our sleeve for Rubber Stamp (TNT) today!

We had a small turnout Saturday but we made some good progress.
Big thanks to Laura, Al, Josh, Pete, AJ, Kevin, DR, Splat's Son Peter and the rest of the regulars (Eammon, Donny, Dave, Steve, Vos and Splat) for taking time away from their busy lives on Saturday to come out and dig.

We worked on TNT, now affectionately know as "Rubber Stamp".
This is a small hit that got a new transition and a new runin.

The new runin:
A nearly dead tree leaning at a precarious angle was sacrificed to log the runin:
This tranny needed a little love....before:

Al and Josh smoothing out the runout after Shark rock...
that leads into this small berm that got a facelift from DR (pictured) and Steve with Al and Josh feeding them a steady diet of dirt.
We still have some touchup to do but it was a productive day.
Thanks again to everyone who came out.

Some supplemental pics.....
Start of the trail day:
The same berm where DR was working, deconstructed:
Another, bigger berm further up the trail that we are builder higher due to the speed you carry into it:
The backside support for the berm - all granite:
Al and Josh fixing and tamping the trail:
And last, but not least - big thanks to the SE Mass chapter for the loan of the trailer and tools:
