PR NEMBA needs Riders Like You

Wednesday, May 3, 2017


Would you like to be more involved with PR NEMBA?
  • At our last board meeting we developed committees to create an opportunity for members to be more involved. We know everyone has busy schedules so we created an opportunity for members to be involved in a limited way. These committees will meet 1-2 times a year and most communication will be done through email or messenger. Members of the various committees will be tasked with investigating, considering, reporting, or acting on different matters of business that PR NEMBA will be engaging in for 2017.
    • Current Committees are:
      Membership Committee
      Branding and Merchandise Committee
      Trail Development Committee
    • We are also looking for a member or two to head up the following committees:
      Program and Events Committee
      Fundraising Committee
  • If you are interested in more information about how you can step up and serve the mountain biking community in our area, please email prnemba@gmail.com.

And a few other things to consider.....

  • At least half (if not more) of the trails in the "bog" actually lie on BLT properties. As a land trust they must balance conservation and the recreational needs of their many users. Mountain bikers are their largest user group on these trails, we have put in hours of trail work on our own and with BLT over the past few years. And yet very few of us are paid members. Please consider joining or making a donation.  It would be nice to show BLT that conservation AND trails are not mutually exclusive......here's the link: BLT Donate Page
  • And if you are a rider of the Orono Land Trust properties, consider joining or donating to this land trust: OLT Donate Page
  • And don't forget about us!  Since we have organized we have been forging relationships with landowners. And they are taking notice. So please support our efforts to improve mountain biking opportunities in our community by joining or renewing here

PR NEMBA Dinner and a Movie

Date

4/29/17 5:30pm

Come celebrate the start of the 2017 riding season with Penobscot Region NEMBA.

We will be having a Spaghetti Dinner and showing Red Bull Media House’s Rad Company along with a short independent film called SHIFT. The good people at VisionCare of Maine are letting us use their Optic’s Theatre to show these films and our friends at Coffee Hound Coffee Bar are dishing out the spread of food. We will have spaghetti with meat sauce, salad and garlic bread. For you non-carnivore types we will offer a vegetarian option.

At the PR NEMBA table you will have your chance to buy some sweet PR NEMBA schwag like Trucker Hats and Tech T-Shirts that will display Our New Logo! We did a limited run on these items so it will be on a first come basis. We will also have a raffle for prizes.

Dinner is $10 for Adults and $7 for kid’s 12 and under. Coffee Hound will have fancy coffee drinks and desserts for sale. Proceeds will support the continuing work of PR NEMBA on all of our trails. The movies are free to those participating in the dinner event. Space is limited and will be on a first come basis as well. We will do our best to accommodate everyone we can. We hope to see many of you there!
