Blue Hills Trail CONDITIONS
Hiking: There's good hiking despite rain November 9th, and now snow topping the trails. If the ground isn't frozen, probably avoid two areas: 1)East Side trails with logging activity; 2)West Side trails between Y & Z.
Biking: please don't bike now, the trail surface is soft and unfrozen. We need to protect the surface of the trail so it's smooth when it freezes and we start grooming for x-country skiing.
Loggers have been working two separate timber sales on the East Side: 1)the vicinity of the Otter Slide and Far East trails (those trails are the furthest 'east' trails), and 2)the 'Red Pine' timber sale (north of the warming house). Click here for a map showing trails the loggers may be using.
November 20: dusting
November 19: 1.5" fluffy, wind blown snow
grooming & MOWING
If the weather is favorable, we'll consider grooming the ski trails as the gun deer hunts wind down in early/mid December.

Update signing privileges for our checking account (Superior Choice Credit Union in Bruce, WI) and our online savings account (First Internet Bank)
Due to the election of new officers in May 2019, we need to update the signing privileges on our bank accounts. Currently Ron Jasperson and Tom Paulsen have signing privileges.
Since Tom Paulsen (secretary / treasurer) handles the banking, his signing privileges will continue as long as he's an officer of the organization. A second individual (officer) needs signing privileges in the event Tom is unavailable.
In May 2019 Ron Jasperson was replaced as president by Sam Behrends. Tom Paulsen will contact Superior Choice Credit Union (checking account) and First Internet Bank (online savings account) with instructions to remove Ron Jasperson's signing privileges, and add signing privileges for Sam Behrends.
Motion to adjourn by Tom Paulsen, second by Sam Behrends. Adjourned at 7:10 p.m.
Taken by Tom Paulsen, Secretary
