For anyone who is interested.

I managed to get the larger of the company trucks and can provide shuttles for anyone after the trail day if they are looking to ride.

I can carry 8-10 people with there bikes.

Please bring your own lock if you wish to keep the bike locked on the truck during the trail day.

62 people came out, lots of new faces, and we managed to get nearly every problem spot sorted. The weather was co-operating very well, although my allergies weren't.
The overall feeling of the day was very positive, and a lot of people took advantage of the weather and went for a ride afterwards. The full report should be up soon.

Sound like a blast and good craic.

Big, do you take any pills that do something against allergic symptoms? I found them to come pretty handy if needed.

you must have a plan laid out in advance, and enough leaders that know what the plan is. Then divide and conquer.

Have people to lead them and the promise of food to get them through it ;)

I took something, it didn't help too much. It's cruelly ironic that I am allergic to trees and spend most my free time around them.

you can get shots with trees in them so you're immune to them.

Isn't it called "desensitizing" the immune system or sumthing?
I am highly allergic to cats, and I found some pills that are really awesome. Maybe just go to a good pharmacy and/or doctor to get you sorted?

/rant/ Gosh, I should work on meh spelling. /rant end/
