SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. -- A work party to clean up the grounds after a run of unusually harsh fall storms, will be held Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012, at Flaherty Field Trial Area, South Windsor, Conn.
Says Flaherty president Rich Murphy, "Fox Hill needs a lot of work just to get up and around it and I am sure that there are other areas that will need to be cleared of debris just to get through.
"I was hoping that the weather would cooperate just enough to freeze the ground so we could get the necessary vehicles in there to make clean up easier but of course its going to be 45 degrees and sunny Saturday which means slick and muddy at Flaherty.
"I would like to get some help from the membership over the next few weeks to clean up what we can. My best guess is we will need chain saws, chains,4 wheel drive trucks, maybe a tractor if anyone has one ready to travel and maybe a few ATVS to get to some of the areas. If you can think of anything else that might help bring it along.
'Please put a call out to your club members to see if anyone can help as i believe there is more work to do than meets the eye. Please let me know if you or any of your members can make it and what they can bring so we can plan accordingly.
"Note, the clubhouse will be open but there is no running water or working bathroom. I will supply coffee and donuts."
