The 2014 BOD held its 1st online meeting last evening, March 17, 2014. A review of organizational business and updates on TrailFest, the new web site introduction and development of a new, fresh public relations mass distribution piece were the first topics.

The second major initiative of the "New" SFWDA was reviewed and the BOD approved the development of a formalized process for the emerging SFWDA Grant program. Final details will be presented to our membership in about 30 days. Stay tuned please for the introduction of the grass roots driven initiative. This is your SFWDA association and we are what we do!

In conjunction with the SFWDA Grant program, the BOD approved the Uwharrie Access Road project as the initial prototype Grant Award. The project details are currently being finalized by CTB members, Friends of Uwharrie and the local National Forest management team. The scope details include addressing ongoing maintenance issues on the access roads to the Uwharrie National Forest including the spreading of 100+ tons of stone. The goal is to have this work complete before the Spring opening of the area and address concerns and needs of a broad range of user groups. More details will be shared as they become available.
