New color stickers have been placed at key points along the trail as well as colored blazes on trees indicating where you are, all matching the new maps that went up this weekend. A few new carsonites were installed and some were moved to better reflect the trail system as well. We realized after putting up the maps that the QR code that goes to Trailforks was recently updated to a paid app and the free version is gone so eventually we'll need to replace that code. Again. Oh well, at least everything is up to date now.
Also, thanks to Angelo and Neale out there trimming this weekend.

*Regarding 2021 events at Shoal*

The decision about events at Shoal was made at the board meeting between Shoal Creek Association and Kansas City Parks & Recreation.

We will NOT be hosting any events for 2021 at Shoal Creek Museum HOWEVER we will be having a once a month get together called " Weekend with Reenactors".

This will involve the buildings being open but no congregation. Reenactors will put on skits and entertain the museum guests. Masks will not be required.

We will put out an announcement the Monday before the Saturday get together.

Many factors were involved in the decision regarding Covid-19 precautions.
