    Brush Poppers say.
    Thank you riders!

    Glad to see some of the pictures and video.
    I like the video to show what is really happening during the event.

    The bridge was mean this year and maybe retired. Unless somebody who likes the bridge and wants to buy the property Maybe we would rebuild it.

    Oger stopped in wednesday with some go pro of my nephew crashing on the hog panel hill to funny. He bragged they were going to knock out two lapps no problem. :ear that ended up being:rofl a small education to the youth.

    Roost Carefully on the hard ground

    The Brushpoppers Bitter End is a month away. If you do not have it on your event calendar...put it there! This is an event you do not want to leave out for the season. The club members have started the trail work. We had to get a 9 mile loop completed so the deer hunters would not be disturbed in October. One wise Elder member suggested we wait for a good frost before continuing. Looks like it will not be a long wait looking at this weekends weather. We will have a few new sections this year and removing a section as well.

    If you have time check out our new webpage. It is coming along nicely http:timthedork.wix.com/brushpoppers

    Bottom now you're talkin my position. If I dont look staight up I only see the walls of a black hole.
    Looked long and hard though the ragged scribbled in note book of Brush Popper's meeting minutes and found thursday after last event 8:00 am riders meet'n. Start time is after receiving sticker when meeting is over. NO STICKER DONT GET CAUGHT ON THE TRAILS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where's Ray Ray with the SKS for surpresion fire?
    Side note; if the easy ass cable bridge scared your weak ass no worries it has been eliminated for 2014. Bring your own boat and lifejackets.

    your's insainly

    Well last year you advertised a 8am start time but didn't have the riders meeting until 9am so it was about 9:20 before most riders got on the trails.

    Layton carries a grudge.

    I'm sure glad I'm fast:D and was able to do two laps. Most people got cut off last year, because of the late start.

    You crashed on the bridge and caused a massive traffic jam.
