Great progress for November’s Maintenance Day
We had approximately 25 people come today who worked from 9am to 3pm to help maintain trails and complete features today at Blackrock. People arrived in the morning to sign in and be allocated to a trail. Work was done on Bonzai, Sickter Gnar and Grannie’s Kitchen.
Work was completed on a Grannie’s Kitchen 2 rebuild and has now been named the E-Rock Village. I truly took a village of bikers to allocate all the materials. A 6 foot drop off an impressive structure that bends around the outside of a tree.
Some heavy digging went down on Grannie’s Kitchen 2, there were four people moving dirt and shaping the landing zone while Eric and Peter worked to get the last few things completed on the structure.
Enough progress was made for Andrew VandenBrink and Shane Taylor to give the feature it’s first test.
Bonzai 1: Louis Brumbaugh and his crew removed one of the A-frame ladders and replaced it with a table.
Sickter Gnar 5: Chris Eggen with his crew moved some dirt and added new shaping. It is looking nice, very fast and flowy.
Thank you to everyone who volunteers their time and effort to continue to make Blackrock what it is.
BRMBA Maintenance Days
We will have build days every month during alternating Saturday’s and Sunday’s from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Riders who plan to ride afterwards can ride their bikes into basic training and get a lift up to the work site. Others who aren’t bringing their bikes can drive to basic training. We really need a strong showing this year to repair this years impact to the trail system and to ensure future shuttle days. We have some tools to provide people with, but bringing your own shovel, hammer, rake, mattock, etc will always help. Make sure to bring sturdy shoes and weather appropriate clothing. We work rain or shine and will cancel the event in certain weather conditions that are unsafe to the build crews.
No Scheduled Maintenance Days at this time. We will be scheduling them starting September 2013 in July’s BRMBA Meeting.
BLACK ROCK MOUNTAIN BIKE ASSOCIATION LAUNCHES MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM
An Opportunity To Support The Organization That Meticulously Operates The Black Rock Trail System
For just short of a decade, the Black Rock Mountain bike trail system has been provided to the public by a small group of local volunteers. Ten years ago, these riders banded together, forming a non-profit organization with the mission of building a top notch trail system, and maintaining access to it. As the Black Rock Mountain Bike Association, we are dedicated to the continued public access to, and care of our precious jewel that is Black Rock.
We have been extremely fortunate to have a volunteer base that is quite unbelievable. Our build days seen numbers in excess of forty strong. Our organization is responsible for providing tools for all these builders to utilize, as well as the Honey Bucket to keep things clean. The fact is, there is quite a long list of expenses to cover.
After years of getting along with an uncomfortably low budget, we have decided to launch a membership program in order to encourage our riding public to donate to our organization. This will be the first time we have charged for membership, and this does not mean you have to be a member to ride at Black Rock.
This is an opportunity to support the group of dedicated people who are working hard to maintain public access, coordinate volunteers, and continually refine the trail system we all love.
For an annual membership fee of $40, you will receive a membership card and 2 membership stickers. Each year will bring a new design to the cards and stickers.
