Event description

Come out & join us to get the trails ready for the busy summer riding season. After the work is done stay for the food, imbibe & enjoy our accomplishments with NWTA long time supporter Fat Tire Farm.

We are also going to celebrate the Grand Opening of the Johnny Royale Trail with the BLM.

WORK PARTY LOGISTICS

Who: Newbies and non-members are welcome; tools are provided. Hardy kids who don’t mind potentially bad weather are invited as we often have a good group of them and will find some tasks for them to work on together.

When: 9:00am – 2:00pm Sunday, June 9, 2019.   

Please RSVP with the link provided below. This is critical to our planning process . Please note that trail work days at Sandy Ridge often hit our maximum capacity. If this is a event you plan to participate in, do not wait to register or you may miss out.

Where: Meet at the Sandy Ridge Trailhead Parking lot.

What to expect: We will meet at the parking lot at 9:00am, sign waivers, break up into smaller groups and hand out tools for the various maintenance areas identified and be heading out to start working by 9:30. Groups will carpool up to their assigned area with tools. You should expect to work rain or shine for approximately 4 hours. Weather can be variable this time of year so check the forecast and dress accordingly.

A big thanks to Fat Tire Farm who will be providing event support, shuttles & raffle prizes. Beer is generously provided by Mt. Tabor Brewing

What to bring: Lunch (if sandwiches are not your jam), plenty of water, snacks, and any other clothing/protection you’d want when doing landscaping type work (digging, raking, cutting/sawing, etc). Tools are provided but you are welcome to bring your own if you’ve got a favorite.
