Ave. de Compadres very muddy

Compadres very muddy

At 1030 today,  30 November, 2013,  I drove Ave. de Compadres from Spur Ranch road to Ave Eldorado..  Unless you have a 4x4 with mud tires you are not likely to make it through toward the south end where the new barn is located.

Keep calm and support your Spur Ranch Road Association.

Final Notice: Spur Ranch Road Annual Mtg

Dear Neighbor,

Please come to our SRR annual meeting this Sunday, 3 pm, at my home - 102 Spur Ranch Road. At the meeting, members will be asked to vote on two open SRR director positions, as well as the 2014 proposed budget. Bob Sherwin (RoadPacker/Bionic Soil Solutions) also plans to attend the meeting to update the community on our road situation and to answer questions.


One change from my earlier notice. We've decided to cancel the potluck, and instead just to provide munchies and beverages to attendees. We don't expect a long meeting, and it seemed too early to have a full-blown dinner.


Again, let me ask for nominees and volunteers for the SRR board, and to urge those of you who haven't paid your dues to do so before or during the meeting.
