Central Oregon Trail Alliance’s 11th Annual Spring Fling: Community Trail Party

Trail users - here's your chance to pitch in and contribute back to our famed Central Oregon trail system. -hoc

Bend, Oregon, Saturday, May 22nd, 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. Bend, OR May 22nd, 2010

Central Oregon Trail Alliance is looking for volunteers for the 11th annual Spring Fling work party. This event will be held at Wanoga Sno-Park on May 22nd, 2010. Meet up at the old Mt. Bachelor park and ride at 9:00 a.m. to sign waivers and get into a trail crew, then enjoy a breakfast provided by REI. We will then carpool from the parking ride to the trail projects. This community effort will focus on expanding this new trail network, with an emphasis on maintaining existing trails and expanding new ones. Come join COTA to help in expanding this new riding area. Show up in pants and long sleeves, and bring gloves, eye protection and a helmet. Children under 14 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. COTA will supply tools, direction and refreshments. Bring your friends and family to help contribute.

Those of you who have ridden the Wanoga trail system realize the potential of this terrain and these trails, but upkeep, maintenance, and further improvements are needed to keep this area running all season long. Trail work will go on from 9:30 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. then there will be an after party at Pine Mountain Sports, with a barbeque and a raffle. So come on out on May 22nd , with nothing more than a positive attitude and motivation to contribute to the improvement of this new and expanding trail system. We'll see you there!
