    Final reminder- 6/20 Richmond Hill trail building.

    Last time you'll see it-
    We're (finally) duly authorized and permitted to continue trail construction at Richmond Hill.
    If you live in the Asheville area, and especially if you've noticed the extreme over-use of Bent Creek trails, come on out and help us build an excellent new singletrack trail network. Over the next year, we'll be finishing trails that will add up to 5-6 miles of high quality ST riding 5 minutes from downtown by car and 15 minutes by bike. I'm more than aware this project is not for everyone, but it's wonderful for those of us who live and play in Asheville.

    Long pants and sleeves recommended- there's more than a bit of Poison Ivy.

    Details at www.pisgahareasorba.org or e-mail me at [email protected]

    I'll check the attic - might have a few suits and mine have ultra cool booties attached...

    Now you're cast of steel and cast aside. Broken dreams maybe, but you haven't died

    Help Wanted

    Help Wanted: Keeper of the Tools

    When: All day Saturday

    Job Description: Hang out at/around the tool trailer/registration/head quarters area and keep a tally of the tools going in and out of the trailer. With the ultimate goal of making sure all the tools that leave the trailer come back at the end of the day. This may involve handing out tools to people who show up mid day. Best suited for someone who's not too interested in being in the poison ivy digging all day.

    Skills Needed: Writing and simple arithmetic, reading optional.

    Pay: LOTS and LOTS!

    To Apply: Let me know.

    I had also volunteered to that position a few months ago and updated with M. Brown at the last meeting. If one more is too many - guess I'll go play Frisbee Golf...

    Wow! You know we're doing something right when we have volunteers fighting for volunteer jobs

    Sorry to step on toes MUM, didn't know Mike had done the recruiting for that position. You know how I am with "my" tools, a little parental. I'm certain it would be a great job for 2.

    The best thing about volunteering for something you care about: Its NOT a job.



    No toes hurting here. You know I'll do "whatever" stuff.

    Wanted to point out that there are other activities at Richmond Hill (besides Frisbee Golf) for those who may have small adults. Bring a picnic basket, bottle of bubbles and explore.
