- Roxanne Koopman of Bernal School
wants to see district cross-country races at Santa Teresa, which would
include Bernal, Davis, and Herman. Mike is trying to get the site fees
and parking fees reduced. He's working with Ranger Aniko Millan to
setup something this year. Aniko will be the lead on this. Mike will be
meeting with her to plan this. Mike asked the Parks & Rec. Board
for help. They asked Park staff to help. Mike talked to Parks Director
Rob Courtney about reducing the parking fees. The cross-country route
starts at the Meadow in the Pueblo Area, goes up the Mine Trail, around
Trench Hill, and back on the Pueblo Trail. Coaches will need special
permission to use Trench Hill to watch the racers, as it's now a
restricted area. The site fee is normally $500. There's a form that
needs to be filled out. Beeny Sanders is helping. Mike wants to get the
parking fees waived for the meets. The fees can be made up because the
kids will come up to the park to practice and will be paying parking

sent a letter to the Muwekmas, who responded back. They will be putting
a statement on the sign in the Muwekma language.
