Saturday, May 14, 2011, 9:00am: ShinDig Volunteer Day.
SMT is scheduling the May Volunteer ShinDig to do trail maintenance on the Backbone and North Backbone trails in the Arkansas Hills Trail System. This work is being done in preparation for the Mountain States Cup races taking place on our trail system May 21, 22. Meet at the Spiral Drive parking lot by the white iron gate at 9:00am. We will work on tread width, backslope clearing, limbing, rock removal, and whatever general maintenance we find. After the trail work, at approximately 1:00pm, a free BBQ lunch will be provided to the volunteers behind the Salida Cafe and Roastery. As usual, come prepared with water, gloves, long pants and sturdy boots. The weather should be nice and warm, but be sure to dress appropriately. Tools will be provided.
The Mountain States Cup event (www.racemsc.com) is a great opportunity to showcase our awesome trail system. With an estimated 400 riders, the trails will get a real workout and a lot of exposure statewide. Come out and help us get them in top condition.
