In response to this statement:
" there is little to no action actually being taken here. Im not sure if there needs to be a more direct line of communication to the people who are actually in charge of getting this project off the ground, but it sounds like the owner of GORC isnt actually aware of the number of people willing, ready, and able to make this happen."
You must understand, GORC is a volunteer advocacy club. We advocate building sustainable trails for mtn. bikes....all mtn. bikes. That said to date our membership has been mostly Cross Country (CC) oriented, so we build CC trails. We have never turned away anyone who wants to do something different, but if you want to do something different you have to do it yourself. GORC will help you by letting you who you need to talk to and providing introductory communication channels. GORC members may even come out and help you design and build. (i.e. John Donjoian and Craig Seibert) However, as previously stated we are CC oriented, you have to convince the other GORC members that your desires are worth while, that you are willing to back them up and are in for the long haul, before you will get the entire volunteer club behind you.
All that said, there are eager fun loving like minded people right here on this forum post, who are pushing forward and demonstrating that they are willing to get behind this great plan. It is up to you and other individuals who want this type of trail in our region to help build a ground swell of support for this fantastic alternate to CC trails. A lot of us want to see this succeed, but are not "downhillers," and are wrapped up volunteering to take care of the other 60+ miles of trails in the area. You have our support, but the fact of the matter is that you need to do it yourselves. I applaud all of the stakeholders who have thrown their hats in the ring for this effort and really do hope this is successful for the long term.
BTW--There was an Agenda item at our monthly meeting this past Thursday on this very topic. Unfortunately, there were no stakeholders at the meeting, to completely fill us in on the status. I am certain the agenda item will be there next month and showing up to the meeting cannot hurt your cause by building a relationship with the rest of the club members.
