    I read that thread, and I'm not quite sure how I feel about the idea yet... Maybe I've just grown an aversion to the term "mentor".

    I'm all for doing intro or novice runs, if we can get guys to show up.
    I think there is also a bit of a solution looking for a problem. If you break the groups down into more manageable sizes you can move better while also giving the newbies opportunities to watch, learn and participate.

    I think you are right (I hate to admit that) it's a solution looking for a problem. We don't wheel as much as the Keystone club does. (Not by choice.) So there is not as much of an opportunity to mentor.

    More manageable sized groups= the need for more trail leaders who are hopefully familiar enough with the trails to be good leaders. Yes, we as a club wheel more of then you guys because we're so fortunate to be close to both Rausch and AAOA. The real issue here is that Keystone now has 73 members, many of whom have never wheeled and/or have newer vehicles that they'd rather not get cosmetically marred. With the weather hopefully improving and allowing more wheeling days up here I see more and more members showing up to wheel. I believe we have enough competent and willing potential trail leaders to make this happen. Might even begin as early as next weekend or in April. Stay tuned!
