Rouge Trail Day and ride Sunday 10/3

Postby froggyrider » September 21st, 2010, 9:57 pm

Hello,

We'll be doing some tweaking of Rouge on 10/3. 10-1 and lunch and ride from 1-2. Meet at the trailhead at Joy and Tireman- look for the MMBA Trailer!

We may be working with American Eagle, one of the SCA's national sponsors who has expressed some interest in supporting local volunteer events in a handful of our cities in October as part of a 'Reclaim the Outdoors' campaign.

Let's keep the Rouge moving forward!

unexpectedly awesome in all sorts of ways.

this would be an insanely cool venue for a CX style race / one day festival.

I agree! The work done today resulted in several improvements that made this trail a DESTINATION!

We had 12 MMBA volunteers out there, plus as many or more SCA folks.

Thanks to volunteers Shout Out style and pics soon.
