Like many in our community, I have found myself thinking about Scud a lot lately. His death left a hole in many hearts, but his life was full of inspiration. As someone serving in a leadership role on the MORE board I find myself reflecting a great deal on the work Scud did for our community over the years. His influence is resulting in many of us seeking ways to turn this inspiration into positive action and to ultimately embrace the lifestyle Scud exemplified.

Burn off all that food you ate while helping the trails you love to ride!. The reroute for the blue trail between Delauter Road and Sand Flats was built this past spring/summer, so now we need to finish up the last bit and close down the old trail.
Our friends at the Potomac Bridle & Hiking Trails Club are hosting their annual day after Thanksgiving horseback ride this Friday, November 29th between 11AM and 1PM. They are asking that the public keep dogs leashed and curtail bike use on the “blue-blazed” Muddy Branch Trail between the Potomac Horse Center to RTE. 28
during the 2 hour event that day.
Some of their horses and riders are not comfortable with bikes and dogs can get quite excited seeing so many horses.
Your consideration is greatly appreciated so as to keep everyone safe.
Schaeffer Trails will close Friday night Nov 29 and stay closed through Saturday Dec 14 for the annual managed hunt. Go get in a nice pre or post turkey ride while you can! The trails may open again for the second half of December, depending on weather conditions, but will in any case close Jan 3 and stay closed until spring (or until we get a really long deep freeze!).
