« on: July 27, 2017, 02:10:28 PM »
Trail Build/Maintenance Day

DATE & TIME: 8:00am, Saturday 12th August 2017

MEETING: Parks Vic Depot (Just above Skills Park)

WORKS:
We will be working on Lower Buckle clearing a lot of drains and making the trail less waterlogged. We will also replace the wooden features where possible, block of B-lines and trim some shrubs that are blocking line of sight.

BRING: Water, food, shovel (if you prefer your own shovel), good shoes (preferably steel capped) and appropriate clothing for weather.
DO NOT BRING ANY POWER/ELECTRONIC/MACHINERY/TOOLS. We do not require it and have strict processes for use of these types of tools.

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.

Builds usually run from 8am-1pm. If you need to leave early or are arriving later in the day, please message me on this forum or contact us via our contact form at www.lysterfieldmtb.com

Hope to see you there.
Cheers.

Hi Nate,

All going well, I will see you tomorrow.

How are you off for barrows / trailers? I imagine you intend to move a bit of material to address that section of trail?

Hey Craig,
I'll have to leave the build early at like 12:30pm. And Derek won't be able to make it until about 8:30am. Would be awesome if you could bring your trailer/use your car to use a parks vic trailer so we can move gravel around at the start.

And if anyone who is coming can bring a barrow, that'd be ace. Parks vic only have a couple.

Cheers,
Nate.

Righto,

I'm still at work now, so will have to throw the trailer on in the morning.  Where will the material be to trailer in? If it's not at the PV yard I may head straight to the 24hr CP gate as I don't think I will get to the PV yard before 8.

Cheers

Hey LDTR, My dad brother and I have been riding ur amazing trails for about 1 year now and let me say they are awesome. We just want to give back to the area and want to help you guys out. We really appreciate you guys for making the trails and we would love to come down and help this weekend at the trail build day to give back a little. There will be 3 of us. Although we do have to leave a bit early because we have sporting commitments.
I was wondering where we will meet?
