Trail Build/Maintenance Day

DATE & TIME: 8:00am, Sunday 8th October 2017

MEETING: Parks Vic Depot (Just above Skills Park)

WORKS:
We will be working on Snipe Trail and Upper Buckle Trail.
On Snipe trail we will be fixing up some drainage/features for about an hour. We will then move on to Upper Buckle and fix up a lot of features, as well as complete a lot of drainage.

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.

Hey Nate,

Not that it will effect many - but that is Around the Bay day.

Of course, this is the 1st year I have ever signed up for ATB - so I'm out.

Cheers

Thanks all for letting me know that you're coming. If you have space to bring a wheelbarrow, please do as I believe we only have one that it is in working order.

Cheers,
Nate.
