Activities this Summer - 2015

The Umatilla National Forest Service, Walla Walla Ranger District are planning a public meeting regarding the Tollgate Fuels Reduction project progress at the Trailfinders clubhouse, Sept. 26.

We have a report from the Groomers regarding the recent brushing work:
Drove the Skyline Road 6403 this last Friday afternoon.  It really looks good.  Most places are brushed out 2 lanes wide and Clearwater Forestry did good work.  
We still have a few things left to fix on the SnoCats this fall, but most of the maintenance has been done.

Hooray for the Pendleton office and Dennis of NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration)!  They have donated new weather station equipment to provide better reliability.


Election results from March 7th meeting:

Board positions - Elected for the 2015-2016 Season are Brandon Christensen, Chris Jenson, Lynn Kent, Linda Batterton, and David Baird.  See Board on top menu for the complete list of current officers and Board members.

The winner of the Raffle drawing for the BarBQ from Ranch and Home was John and Shiela Archibald.

If you are interested in leading a ride or hosting an event at the clubhouse please contact Amy Hamann at

This change has been at the direction of a attorney. To be voted on at 6pm 3/2/13 at the membership meeting along with the election of board members. The change is that the prior version stated that the assets would be sold in the event of a dissolution and any money left would be distributed to the current members at the time of dissolution. It turns out we can't do this and any money left must be given to another non-profit(s) as decided by the current members and board of directors.
