Great day at Stanky. 17 names on the sign in sheets plus I saw some people who were not signed in. Riders from several local teams were present, many are MSTA members, but we saw some new people too. Several projects were going on. The biggest is extending the causeway built by scouts on the connector to the creek crossing. Pictures as soon as I can get them posted. Thanks everyone.
