SE MA NEMBA CHapter Meeting & Election

On Monday September 27, 7pm, we will hold our monthly SEMass NEMBA chapter meeting.

This will be a special meeting, as we are holding elections for all officers positions.

Most notably, President, since I have stepped down, but also Vice President, which we have never really had.

So far, we have one presidential nominee, Tommy Walker.

Tommy has a huge following outside of and including NEMBA, and has a great energy towards inclusion, membership growth, rider education, and all things mountainbike.

VP is open as well, and Tim Friedmann has thrown his hat into that ring.

Secretary is currently filled by Peter Williams, and Treasurer is Steph Beaudoin.

They both are fairly new additions to our board, and we’re happy to have them. But this is a general election.

Meeting location: The meeting will be at Abington Depot (upstairs). 101 Railroad St, Abington, MA

  If you'd like to run for an officer's position send an email to .

We are looking for volunteers to help with a Bridge build on the Orange Trail at Adams Farm.  This new bridge will be about 40’ long, 3’ wide, and will span a small stream that crosses the trail.

We will cut the lumber on-site then use a truck to take the lumber to the trailhead.  From there, we will need to hike in the lumber about 1,000’ to the work site.

Meeting at the barn at Adams Farm at 9AM.  We should be completed by noon. 

   999 North Street, Walpole

There will be food and a fun ride afterwards, covering your favorite Adams Farms trails as well as some adjacent lesser known terrain in Medfield!

About the location: This stream crossing has a technical rock crossing and a mud pit.  The bridge will cross the mud and leave the technical rock option.

Please bring cordless impact drivers (with your name on them), gloves, hiking boots and some water.

Please email me at george@georgelester.com or Tom McKenna at tom@tomandshan.com if you can attend.
