A few fun pics of the dynamic trio that made up the backbone of Rocky Top 2007! This might remind some of you of the great people on staff and the fun times had during last season... and act as motivator for those of you that did not make it out to volunteer last year. do you want to miss the fun times this fall? i think not :)

Taking a Look Back - '05 and '06

Team ToYer - Ted and Christine

I would have taken a look farther back than 2005 but that is when I came on the scene and thus is all I know about. Recently, Ted Wilson - beloved bearded trail crew leader - announced that he is hanging up his Pulaski. Rocky Top 2005 and Rocky Top 2006 were lead by 'Team ToYer' - the Ted and Christine duo. So in my reminiscing here are a few classic photos.....

Crew Leading At-A-Glance

Safety. Safety. Safety.

Some "building bridges".. we built Walls

Some tasks take many, others just take Ted!
