2011 Busting through Great Expectations

Saturday 28 May dawned fine and still. The perfect day to push Great Expectations through to the stream and the Mill site on the other side. And what a turn-out to make it happen!

Ricky Ward cracked the ... chainsaw? ... to keep us all hard at work.

But could he really keep an eye on 31 of us?

Yup, possibly the most impressive turn-out since opening day, and a heck of a lot of work got done. Awesome efforts from everyone (there are too many to name in person without the serious possibility of leaving someone off the list). There are still a few bridges to come in (and thanks also to those people who have started working on those bridges). Now it’s time to ride and tweak and ride and titivate and ultimately ride!

The next major work party will take place in August, and that will focus on repairing winter damage and tired sections of the track in preparation for some fun summer flow.
