Na Ala Hele Trail Advisory Council Info
Congratulations again to those who ran and crewed RTS! Mahalo to BIG John and Bram for putting the race together – great job!
The NAHTC met on Tuesday, March 21st at the Makiki Baseyard. Here are some pertinent points for us:
1. The feral pig population is increasing dramatically. To bring the situation under control, allowing pig hunting for one full year is being considered. The Manoa neighborhood board will meet at Manoa Rec. Center on 12 April to discuss this issue – this meeting is open to the general public. Currently, pig hunting is allowed in selected areas only on Tuesdays/Thursdays during selected periods.
If the new policy is adopted, we will see hunters and their dogs on weekends as we train and race. Signs will be posted. Please be prepared – be especially careful if you bring your dogs along for a run.
2. The MOU (memorandum of agreement) has been signed for Poamohu trail. Access will be by permit only. We have seen a map and photos of the area – it’s very nice and very runnable!
a. Aaron Lowe is requesting HURT runners’ assistance to string fence wire along the new access road.
b. Work dates will be every weekend in May, 2006 – there is a day to fit everyone’s schedule.
c. Please contact Aaron if you can help. His email: Alowe@hawaii.rr.com
