Does anyone maintain these jumps on a regular basis? Is there someone who is the maintainer? Someone I know would like to know, with some thoughts of helping out or putting some work into them.

I'd like to know as well, having just moved into the neighborhood. from what I've seen so far there's just a few kids who may dig there from time to time. With a bit of organization and work the spot could be decent again.

Jay Hoots, the original builder who has gone on to bigger and better things says it is currently not officially maintained in any official capacity. He has suggested it is badly in need of some organized volunteer help. Anyone? PM me if interested.

I spent most of last year digging there.
In the entire year that I have been digging there I have only ever seen one other person dig there.
If you do want to dig there let me know.
I could use the help.

Yeah, if you're traveling you could do better than Myrtle. The "biggest" line is 3-4 6' faux-gaps, pretty tame.

Still, they could be buffed up pretty easily. Last I was there the small line looked almost completely gone, more like a downhill pump track than jumps, and the "big" line needed the lips built up, they're just rollers now.

If anyone does start digging there, pm me. Schedule is tight these days but I'm just down the street and might be able to help. I'm assuming anyone who want to get Myrtle back in shape is looking for a place to learn or to teach kids. It would be sweet to put some kind of pump track in, but I'm not sure the slope would lend itself to that.

Its for kids and beginners.

On the N Shore Loutet is more advanced.

It's been a free-for-all for the last 10-15 years.

I've been in there a couple of times over the past few years to clean things up trash wise.

I like how Dan clearly stated he's been building there for the last year and you all completely disregarded that…..

Not being ignored… now that schools out there will be 20 other people (kids) digging in there as well. That's the nature of Myrtle.

Deep Cove kids don't do anything but get drunk and start pallet fires down at Myrtle.
