NEMBA TrailFest @ Highland Mountain Bike Park
Sept. 22-23, 2012
Mark your calendars and reserve the dates!
Join many of NEMBA’s core trailbuilders for a weekend of building and riding at Highland Mountain Bike Park on Sept. 22-23.
We’ll be building some awesome XC singletrack on the property adjacent to Highland for the first part of each day, and then doing some downhilling and cross-country riding for the rest of the day. We’ll be camping and using the bunkhouse at Highland Saturday night (but you’ll be welcome to come up Friday night, if you wish). On Saturday evening we’ll have BBQ, beverages and a bonfire. Mark, the owner of HMBP, has generously offered to provide comp passes to those that come build. You might wish to rent a DH bike to maximize your fun!
NS NEMBA’s Joe DiZazzo and others have been up to Highland designing trails, and we want help building it. This will be a great work hard/play hard weekend.
If you enjoy building trails, this weekend is not to be missed!
If you are a NEMBA trail crew leader willing to lead a work crew, please let us know. We’re going to need quite a few crew leaders. We’ll try to have a meeting of crew leaders the Friday afternoon before the event to review the work sites.
Also, please let NS NEMBA’s Steve Charrette know that you’ll be coming to the event. If you wish to reserve one of the 20 bunk bed, let him know that too since it’s first come, first served.
