OK, I’ll say what others are thinking: A school principal should set an example for all forms of protective equipment.

@Jonathan – even though it’s not an “event” we should make mention of the fact that this weekend is the IMBA Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day. It’s probably deserving of some article/awareness space too, seeing as a number of the MTB venues that folks might want to take their kids to are either fully-closed or partially-closed. To wit:

* Rocky Point: Park is open, including the Andyland beginner trail, though the whole section containing the epic Switchblade and Roller Coaster trails remains closed due to logging operations.
* Timberline bike park: Closed for the season
* Ski bowl bike park: Closed for the season
* Timberline-to-town trail: Is it open?
* Sandy Ridge: Was closed as of last weekend, apparently may be open now?
* Molalla: Closed due to wildfires
* Stub Stewart: Open
* Black Rock: Open
* Hagg Lake: Open
* Powell Butte: Open
* Post Canyon: Open

Just so that folks can know where to go based on the skill level of their kids!
