TNR – 09/07/19

Tonight is one of the rare occasions that Bob our trusty TNR leader will not be present. Let’s meet 6:15 at the DQ on Caribou. So grab your bike, helmet, water and put on some bug spray and lets enjoy some of the finest trails Wakamow offers.

Volunteers for trail maintenance

It is that time of the year where the trail side vegetation (grass and some branches) is needing to get trimmed back. This is a fantastic chance for everyone to pitch in and give a little time to ensure a weekend filled with fun! The club has the necessary trimmers and safety gear available for volunteers to use. As we are doing this on public lands Provincial Park) we also have volunteers liability insurance inplace so we need ALL club volunteers to complete and return the attached waiver. The waiver is used to identify to the insurer who is a club volunteer! Once we receive the completed waiver we will coordinate with the Park the volunteer trimming.

This waiver can be downloaded below, signed and returned via email.

Registration reminder

Registration for the Buffalo Pounder closes tonight (June 20th) @ 11:59. You will be able to register Sunday morning but it will cost you $70. You can register online at https://ccnbikes.com/#!/events/2019-buffalo-pounder.

While the weather forecast going into the weekend is interfering with riding plans on Thursday and Friday. Saturday’s forecast shows reduced rain and Sunday will have improved. We are lucky that the Buffalo Pound trails are rideable shortly after a rain and the trails planned for the course are well drained. With the current forecast for Saturday to have minimal precipitation, trail conditions on Sunday should be fantastic and filled with lots of hero dirt.

The plan is to mark the course Saturday morning and once complete a message will be posted on the Moose Jaw Pavers facebook page.
