On Saturday, May 28, we are sponsoring our first weekend Volunteer Trail Work Day of the 2022 mountain bike season; we hope you can join us! We will be doing light trail maintenance and spring clean-up. If you own a leaf rake, please bring it to the work day as extra leaf rakes are always needed. We really need your help to kick off what promises to be another great season for trail use! In addition to the details below, this page may be updated with additional event info as the date gets closer.
DATE: Saturday, May 28
MEETUP: Sugarloaf Outdoor Center
TIME: 9:00 a.m. to sign up and get assignments.
DURATION: Approximately 5 hours.
ACTIVITIES: Light trail maintenance and spring clean-up.
ITEMS TO BRING: Water, sturdy gloves and footwear, safety glasses/protective eyewear, insect repellent, rain gear (just in case), lunch or snacks, your kids because this is a kid-friendly event (using only light tools), tools you may have available (such as leaf rakes, loppers, hand saws, hand shears), and a cell phone so we can communicate issues that pop up.
RSVP: Please RSVP to the work day leader, Josh Tauses, at firstname.lastname@example.org and RSVPing through this event page is a great way to help us spread the word about the event and let your friends know you'll be attending. When you RSVP ("Going" or "Interested"), you'll receive a Facebook alert notification if new posts are added to the page.
NEMBA'S ANNUAL WAIVER: All trail work volunteers must sign NEMBA's annual waiver. This waiver only needs to be signed once per year. You'll find the waiver at https://smartwaiver.com/splash/17029
DISCOUNT: Our friends at the Hostel of Maine have generously offered 50% off beer (same day, following the trail work) to CRNEMBA volunteers, ages 21+.
ALL WELCOME: Our trail work days are open to people of all ages and abilities; no previous trail work experience required. All that is required is enthusiasm and a willingness to work together; our club will provide direction, tools, and work project locations. We need your help maintaining the beautiful trail network in Carrabassett Valley. Please join us. Trail work days are always fun and productive!
