Default Moab Trail learning weekend

Hello everybody,

I have been talking about a weekend in Moab just to learn more trails. This will be the weekend of Feb. 29 - March 2, Friday thru Sunday. Plan to get there Thursday if you can. Please let me know who is coming and when you will get there. I am looking mainly to those who will be going to Cruise Moab and becoming a trail leader or gunner.

The idea is for each new or veteran trail leader to run 4 to 5 trails over the time there. Those who come out later on Friday will run less. This will be a busy no frills weekend. We are going there to learn more trails as Rising Sun Cruise Moab trail leaders and gunners. We can use those of you who know various trails to teach others as well as taking the oppurtunity to learn new ones.

We will gather around 8:00am or so every morning for the days trails. I am working on a gathering place so that will come later. Slickrock says they don't open until the Saturday, but I am talking with them to see if they can move this up a couple of days.

We will not be running Pritchett Canyon, Behind the Rocks, Elephant Hill, or the Golden Spike.

We are all part of the Rising Sun reputation of being one of the best TLCA clubs in the United States. And that means all who come to Cruise Moab will have a great time because of your Trail leader expertise. So lets give it our best and travel this weekend to work on making that reputation even better.

Thank you,

Greg Luer

Please note: this is a weekend for trail leader learning. All who are willing to learn and lead trails are welcome.

If you're simply looking to go run trails in Moab with Rising Sun, please sign up for Cruise Moab.

Gregg, not sure if I can make it or not as I have a big project at work till the end of March. I will be really bummed if I can't make it, will there be another trip or is this it? I honestly thought that it would be closer to the end of March, a little warmer too ;-)

If I can go it will be a last minute decision and will most likely get there later on Friday if not Friday night.

Am I correct in assuming that, if you don't make this, you cannot be a leader?

I hope not, as I was really looking forward to leading a few trails.

No Isaac. It is only an option to make the club "Mo betta" Your willingness to lead will always be appreciated! A couple of us have been chatting about possibly doing some club clinics as we all can learn from each other but the more comfortable you are with the basics the higher your confidence level gets as well as the safety factor. There is a huge amount of collective knowledge in the club and if that is channeled together everyone will learn something!

I know how to get to and get from a great many trails in Moab.

What I really need is "Trail Leader Etiquette". By that I do not mean that I would be rude or what not, but I'd like tips, pointers, guidelines, etc to help me:

A) make the experience as enjoyable and fun as possible for ALL on my run
B) deal with any "problem children" should the need arise

I love Moab, and want to share my joy of the area with others. I feel that I can do that without difficulty. I just would like some "veteran" advice and guidance for the not-so-joyous parts.

We could probably do some of that stuff at a regular RS meeting, or on a local trail run.
