    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! BCT Copper Mountain Loop Trail Building - Nov 16th

    The BCT is kicking off it's trail building season next weekend, Saturday November 16th. Our goal this year is to complete the Copper Mountain Loop off of the northern end of the BCT near Mayer. We don't have any funding this season to hire any trail crews so we are relying on volunteers to get er done! There is a training crew out there now from SCA (Student Conservation Association) working the trail, but are making slow progress.

    Since this is more up by the Prescott area, this is a great opportunity for the Precott folks to come down and lend a hand. The quicker we get this section built the more riding opportunities there are to ride when Precott trails are snowed in or to muddy to ride this winter.


    Date: November 16, 2013
    Time: 9:00 AM
    Meet At: Location described in “Directions” below

    Tools to be used: Pulaski, McLeod, shovel, pick mattock, limb lopper, and pruning saw. Tools will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own if they are marked for easy identification.

    I may be down for this. Any chance you will be in Phoenix this sunday? I will be at the final round of the AZ High School MTB races at White Tanks and owning the the microphone. There are a couple of teams from that area and plenty of adults who ride who may like to hear your message. I will give you free time on the mic (guided if needed) but PM me with more and I will announce it if you can't make it. With contact info too
