Beams, Beams, they’re good for your heart

JJTrail Volunteers & prospective volunteers,

SUNDAY is the day we need ALL HANDS ON DECK! see below for details. We are also working Saturday morning.

The weekend plan:

-Saturday – 10am, meet at jjms field – we will be decking, setting up the JJMS-pit boardwalk for foundations, and sending teams out to spots around the course that need attention. Bring drill, shovel if you can.

Sunday— 10:30am meet at Jjms field.

BIG PLANS FOR MOVING THE FOUR BRIDGE #3 beams from jjms field to work site staging area – the rope carry process will take around 90 minutes and we will need 25-30 people to make it happen. RSVP ( if you can come so we know how many to expect.

JJTrail Map detail showing locations and status of the bridge, causeway, and boardwalk structures. (Green = compete; yellow = started; orange = planned not yet started)

Each of the four beams is 28’ long and weighs in at 750lbs. We have moved similar beams longer distances on the JJTrail so we know it can be done with enough hands.

You don’t need to bring any tools for moving the beams Sunday. We have work gloves but if you own a pair bring them. No experience necessary. All are welcome and appreciated. All ages and abilities. The more the merrier!

If you haven’t been down on the JJtrails in a while you will be in for a treat.

Let me know if you have questions. ( or phone below)

See you on the (JJ) trails!
