Description: After the recent summer maintenance of September 4-6 and the previous independent work of Paul
Dickens, Randy Smith & son Evan, our trail is clear for passage. Further maintenance needs, as of now, are reduced
to the point that additional work can be handled by up to 30 people. This number is what I feel TATC can prudently
sustain in these Covic-19 times. How to be included Participants must first complete two homework requirements
involving the reading of Covid-19 Job Hazard Analysis material and viewing an ATC video; then certify such by contacting me (email@example.com) as well as sending the required notice of video viewing to ATC. These requirements and directions are found at the link below. If your name does not appear on both lists, you are ineligible (ATC
rules) to participate. https://tidewateratc.com/resources/Maintenance/Requirementsfor Returning to Work on the A.T.
as a Member of TATC.pdf The roster of participants will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis.
Camping arrangements TATC has reserved the group camping area that is uphill from the CCC kitchen. There are
28 widely spaced camping sites on grass with a picnic table at each place. The new bath house has 4 restrooms with
showers, and TATC will have exclusive use of the group site. The group camping area is open, bright and spacious
unlike the dismal Williams Branch area. Participants might want to bring some type of tarp shelter. We are a friendly,
happy, social-loving group! It will be a joy to be together again; however, there must be strict attention given at all
times to keeping true to CDC, ATC, and state pandemic guidelines. Masking, social distancing, hand washing, and
avoidance of carpooling (other than family units) will be required.
