I too was frustrated by the cancellations. However the “go team” didn’t seem like a real option when it was asked. If I were them I’m not going to rely on a group that hasn’t proven themselves to make major trail changes. I think if there was a large reliable team then we could apply pressure. Why aren’t people volunteering? I think the vast majority of it’s selfishness. I know guys that ride way more than me, multiple days per week, and almost exclusively ride Aliso/Laguna yet they always have an excuse about why they can’t volunteer. Regarding the participation cap, that’s not a hard rule as far as I have experienced. I email them when I miss the sign up deadline or the event is full and I’ve never been turned away. The cap seems more to keep them from getting flooded with people that are there because they need some sort of volunteer credit and don’t have interest beyond that. If real volunteers are being knowingly turned away then I would be upset. There also appears to be an openness to doing none scheduled days if one can put together a group. I don’t know enough people to be able to arrange this but the fact that they will engage me with these questions seems positive.
