Trail Build Training Day - Saturday 18th March
« on: March 14, 2017, 09:39:22 AM »
Trail Build Training Day

DATE & TIME: 8:30am, Saturday 18th March 2017

MEETING: Parks Vic Depot (Just above Skills Park)

WORKS:
Trailscapes (professional trail builders) will spend the morning teaching and instructing us on how to correctly carry out maintenance and build using hand tools. This build is still free and available to anyone who wants to help volunteer. We will be gaining knowledge on how to build berms, drains, grade reversals etc in certain areas around the park. If you have ever wanted to learn some techniques or understand more about the standards around trail building, this day may be of interest to you.
The maintenance we will be carrying out will still be of benefit to the park.

Trails: TBC

BRING: Water, food, shovel (we do have some in the PV trailer), good shoes (preferably steel capped) and appropriate clothing for weather.

Please let us know if you're attending by replying on this forum thread (so we can organise tools and food etc).
If you have any questions, please ask away.
BBQ and cold drinks provided for free to volunteers at the end of the build.

BYO food if you have any special food requirements.
Hope to see you there.
Cheers.

Twelve high quality and passionate volunteers attended today's trail build training.
The day was spent carrying out maintenance and learning trail building techniques on drainage, rollers, berms and rock armouring.
A big thanks to Garry from TrailScapes for teaching us some useful trail building techniques.

We worked on Upper Blair Witch and also Granite Link. Some fine artwork was carried out with the rock armouring.

A massive thanks to those who gave up their Saturday morning to help care for the trails that many other's gain enjoyment out of.

If you are interested in helping the club, we have regular builds once a month. If time is an issue, check out how to to become a club member or how to donate to us at www.lysterfieldmtb.com
