Did we decide on an opening date?
The short answer is no. We still haven't decided on an opening date. There are many issues that we are still working through that must be resolved before we can open. Some of the issues are:
This isn't the entire list, but it is a small sample of some of the things that we're working on. Know that we are working diligently on trying to get this park up and running for everyone to enjoy.
How did the sponsorship ride go?
The sponsorship ride went off without a hitch (at least not a big hitch)! We raised around $12,000 which we will be using to help resolve the issues outlined above. We had around 130 riders that came (tickets and day-of riders) and enjoyed some great riding with a fantastic meal. We didn't have any BBQ left. The feedback is still being assessed, but the initial survey results seem positive.
When is the next meeting?
We'll be holding our next meeting on Wednesday, October 21st. You can follow the event on Facebook. We'll (hopefully) be welcoming a new replacement board member from Estill County, as well as working through some issues concerning the bylaws that the board functions under. We hope to also have some updates on the previously mentioned issues. As always, we encourage everyone to come out and attend our meetings. Stay tuned for our next update!
