    At the regularly scheduled Central Texas Trail Tamers Board of Director’s Meeting, on August 10th, 2019 Kevin Deiters completed his term as president of the organization. Kevin is one of the original founders of the Trail Tamers and his contributions to the organization can’t be overstated. The Board is grateful for his long tenure as president  and all of his contributions to the organization over the years. Kevin will continue to teach trail building and maintenance classes, lead trail crews serve on the Board. We couldn’t ask for a better mentor and feel fortunate to have his continued support. At that same meeting, Scott Newsom agreed to accept the presidency, Angie Hardy will continue as treasurer and Charlie Bray will continue as secretary. Jerry Levinson, and Vick Hines round out the current Board membership. Look for a message from the president soon about the future of the Trail Tamers.

    At the regularly scheduled Central Texas Trail Tamers Board of Director’s Meeting, on September 7th, 2019, The Board did some planning for upcoming events. Scott, Angie, Charlie, Kevin and Jerry were in attendance. We have some exciting and interesting trips coming up. We already posted an open day campout at The Nature Conservancy Davis Mountains Preserve and a December project at Love Creek. Kevin is working on a weekend at the YMCA property in Comfort as well as looking into another trip to the Guadalupe Mountains. Expertise in multiple trail building technologies is one of the characteristics that sets us apart from other groups who do trail work. We will be having some skill building clinics coming up to enhance our advanced trail building skills as an organization. Be on the lookout for more info on that. Our next Board meeting will be in Tuesday, December 10th, 2019 at the Central market on North Lamar.  All members of the Trail Tamers are welcome to attend to give us your input and support! Please make plans to join us there.

    Be sure to contact the Trail Tamers if your organization is interested in learning about building or maintaining hiking trails.  We offer an introductory sampler class, developed by the Pacific Crest Trail Association and U.S. Forest Service Trails Specialist John Schubert) is for people new to trail work who want an overview.

    One quarter of the class covers “how trails work,” i.e. basic trail design concepts; one quarter covers trail work safety protocols; one quarter covers hands-on brushing and hand-saw clearing; and one quarter covers hands-on drainage cleaning.
