CR NEMBA Trail Day #4
On Saturday, July 10, we are sponsoring a Volunteer Trail Work Day. We will be doing general trail maintenance and prepping the trails for the 10th Carrabassett Backcountry Cycle Challenge to be held on 7/17.
If you own a leaf rake, please bring it to the work day as extra leaf rakes are always needed. And don't forget to bring a face mask for close encounter work. In addition to the details below, this page may be updated with additional event info as the date gets closer.
DATE: Saturday, July 10
MEETUP: Sugarloaf Outdoor Center
TIME: 9:00 a.m. to sign up and get assignments.
DURATION: Approximately 5 hours.
ACTIVITIES: General trail maintenance and prepping the trails for the 10th Carrabassett Backcountry Cycle Challenge the following weekend.
ITEMS TO BRING: Water, face mask for close encounter work, 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 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 Facebook 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.
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. 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!
