Trails are running really nice today with some awesome moisture being around the last few days. You can expect some really good grip and fast flow! No better way to kill those Monday blues.

Hucks N Hooves and the S Berms have had a tickle up so please no skids! Lets keep them running mint and smooth as long as possible.

Weed eating will be getting done all around the park Mr Black will be closed till 12pm for some much needed weed eating so please slow down around the work.
