Remember waaaaay back in March when we won $12,000 to put towards trail building in Carcross? Well, that money has been put to good use this summer with the uptrack on Montana Mountain being almost complete as I type this post.
The Carcross crew has been working hard and we would like to show them how much their work is appreciated and how we want to get even more work done out there this summer. To that end, CMBC is organizing a trail building day on Monday August 18th. We would like to get as many people as possible out helping the crew with their work and contributing to the Montana Mountain trail network. It will be a chance to meet some of the youth who have been working on the trails this year and, if you haven't built or maintained trail before, it's a good way to understand how much work it takes to build even a few metres! Come be a trail fairy for the day. Wings optional. Here are the details:
Meet at the Carcross Commons Pavillion at 10am on Monday August 18th. Yes, that's the holiday Monday here in the Yukon. Bring a sturdy pair of boots, gloves and some food and water to get you through the day. If you happen to have a favourite rake, pulaski or other hand tool bring that too, but it's not a requirement. There will be a BBQ to feed you at the end of the day.
You know it's good karma. Hope to see lots of you there!
