Rocky Gap, Marienville, Timberline Trails

A group of SSRT members-friends spent a few days riding some of the trails in Marienville. We stayed at The Forest Lodge and enjoyed the company of Frank & Sue. The mud holes were a little deep but didn't keep our group from getting in an having some fun. Amanda Neese did a great job driving the full size Polaris Ranger 900 through the rocky terrain. Some very beautiful sites - Glacier Rocks on the Rocky Gap Trail. Melissa Moore gave us a lesson on how to have warm hot dogs on the exhaust of the razor. Evening was spent around the fire and also one night out at Petina's Restaurant. Sure was a great trip with a bunch of good friends. We all missed Peg Brooks not being able to come along.

13th Annual Best Line Powersports-SSRT Chicken BBQ

The event was held on Saturday, July 18,2015. However, the motor-homes started arriving Wednesday night prior to the event. Fred Lingle helped prepare the parking lot so everyone could park most efficiently. All the overflow parking areas were utilized too. Mike Getz and his youngest daughter CC, Fred Yearick and wife Missy, along with JP and Dave Walker came to represent Best Line Powersports. The chicken was prepared by Chris Vangor family & friends-wow-what great chicken it was!! (Check out Kyle Vangor crashed out in the truck after a long night of cooking.)We want to thank all of our volunteers that helped man the various stations. It takes alot of good volunteers to make an event such as this a success. Of course everyone loved Jack's ice cream and thank you Lyn for the Apple & Cherry Crisp. Thank you all!! It was great to see Amanda McCartney stop by and support the event too. We also gained a new corporate sponsor, Rider Insurance Agency out of New Jersey. We sure enjoyed Kevin's company. Lot's of compliments on the new pavilion-you could enjoy sitting down and eating a meal out of the hot sun. Many more improvements to come. Best Line supports this event and we could not do it without them-THANK YOU!!

Rockview Correctional Facility Community Work Program

Larry Mayes was contacted by Ron Young, a member of the SSRT and Rockview employee with information about the Rockview Community Work Program. Arrangements were made through Wade Renninger, Forest Manager for Doug Sampsell the Safety Officer to tour the trail site for approval. Tim Capparelle, Correction Labor Foreman also assisted with the tour. Jeff Rockovan, Communicatons Director gave permission for picture taking and article. Over the course of four weeks, the inmates were transported to the trails sites to brush & trim the trail. Dennis Barndt, Chuck Gardner and Tim Capparelle supervised and guided the work crews. They completed approximately 4 miles of trail brushing from Gillentown Trailhead to Clarence and the road to the Moshannon Community Center. The pictures demonstrate how much work was completed by these workers and what a big difference it made for the safety of the trail users. Their energetic work efforts and pleasant attitudes made each day a winner. This program excells and demonstrates good use of resources. Thank You Rockview Correctional Facility!

Snow Shoe Rails to Trails Pavilion

It was a year ago that the planning for a new pavilion took place. The shell was installed in October 2014 by John Runkle. Now the concrete floor was just poured and finished by Bob Demko of Houtzdale, Pa. 16651 - Tele- 814-553-2382 if you are looking for someone to finish conrete. Justin Finch and Paul also helped with the project. The 2b stone for the build up in and around the pavilion was provided by Hanson stone. Terry Parks trucking and Dave Tobias Trucking delivered the stone. Thank you all for your help to complete the shell and floor so we can hold our first event in the pavilion - chicken bbq on July 18th. Public welcome!
