This photo was taken in 2015 during a Memorial Day weekend camping trip to Hanging Rock State Park in North Carolina. Unfortunately we are not able to camp as a group this year, but for those of you with a long weekend, I hope you’re taking some time to relax and remember the reason for the holiday.

In other news, the website updates are completed a little ahead of schedule. There are a couple of new features I didn’t mention in the previous announcement:

  1. The home page includes feeds from our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. Try it out! Send us an instatweet or twittergram and watch it pop up on our website!
  2. Photo albums from our Facebook page are now viewable on the website. From the main menu, select “Media”, and from the drop-down menu, select “Facebook Albums”. I try to pick flattering photos, but if you see a photo of yourself you don’t like, just let me know and I’ll remove it.

Now that the CVT Points officially retired, check out how you ranked in this list of the All-Time Top 100. Congrats to Steve H. for earning first place! Just behind Steve are the late Mike Scalf and Annie Vaughan, both of whom had points donated to them by other Trailblazers to keep their names alive. One of my next tasks is to set up a memorial page for those we have lost over the years.

Stay safe, and we will see you on the trail soon!
