What kinds of things are covered at the meeting? I have never been to a "trail maintenance" training/meeting but have done maintenance for trails before.

It answers the question, "What is Required?"
When does the maintenance have to be accomplished.
How are the trails inspected.
What happens if we were to fail an inspection.
What happens if the trails are found impassable/restricted during the two times Trail Maintenance is required.
Attention to Signage Details.

It serves as a great refresher or very educational for the guy/club that has never done Trail Maintenance.

Did I mention the trail technicians usually bring cookies?

I've been to the last 2 and would like to make this one also, but I have to see how it fits my schedule this year.

Is there any cost involved or need to register?
