For those looking for a fun and worthwhile weekend getaway on May 15 and 16, consider heading up to Downieville. Get caught up on your volunteer trail work hours for '04 on Saturday and ride the trails on Sunday. The post-work parties are always a good time, too.

Here's the official notice from Greg Williams of Yuba Expeditions:

The Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship will be hosting a Trail Daze work day on May 15 in Downieville. Participants will be installing rolling dips on Second and Third Divide trails. Breakfast, sack-lunch and beverages will be provided by Yuba Expeditions. The local Forest Service will provide some tools, but if folks have their own digging tool, please bring 'em. Meet at Yuba Expeditions between 9 and 9:30.
