Hey Everyone,

Join Evergreen, Platypus Hydration, DNR and a whole bunch of other cool folks to help get the new trails finished (and manpower permitting, old favorite’s ready) for the 2014 season. We need people to clean drains, trim back brush, clear branches and compact the new trails by riding them. :)

In return you get ride the new trails before they officially open!!/B]. Plus enjoy a bbq and the chance to win some cool shwag!

Progression Cycle will even be there to give your bike a little love at no charge if you need minor repairs or adjustments.

Please RSVP here Evergreen MTB Calendar

Big turnout would be a huge help! New trails are :thumbsup: But could still use some last minute love!



Gnomes have been at work all winter long, preparing...

Too bad, I'll be in Jersey visiting family. Hope I don't get stuck in any traffic jambs.

Hey Everyone,
We don't need anymore trail work volunteers, but with 60 folks coming out we do also need about 15 volunteers to help us make the day a success - run the bbq, coordinate parking and shuttles, shoot photos or video, etc.

Sign up to help us put on the event and you can enjoy the bbq, shuttle laps on the new trails, prizes and more. Kids welcome too.

Here's how it works in 3 easy steps:
1. Click this link to go to our invitation page on VolunteerSpot: Invitation ? VolunteerSpot
2. Enter your email address: (You will NOT need to register an account on VolunteerSpot)
3. Sign up! Choose your spots - VolunteerSpot will send you an automated confirmation and reminders. Easy!

Note: VolunteerSpot does not share your email address with anyone. If you prefer not to use your email address, please contact me and I can sign you up manually.

Thanks y'all!

Hey Everyone,

Just a quick note...If you're planning to come to the Tiger Work/Ride/Eat Spring Clean Event this Saturday 4/5, you MUST have RSVP'd on our calendar!

Kids don't need to RSVP as long as the parents have RSVP'd, but your friends do. This event is currently full, but people have been cancelling so if you check the calendar you might score a spot.

Evergreen MTB Calendar

Otherwise, be on the lookout for another event like this coming in May, and RSVP right away.

Thanks!

Normally not a problem at all, but this is going to be a big and crazy day what with the bbq, shuttles and more than 75 people on the hill total. We're leaving ours at home for this one...
Thanks Stacy. I've had her at other trail events, wasn't sure for this one.

On another note anyone want to carpool from Ballard/north Seattle area, have extra room in the truck.

Must be signed up on the Evergreen calendar

Hey everybody, so awesome that so many folks want to come and dig in the dirt and ride the trails at Tiger! We're full... wow! A quick heads up...

I'm hearing from multiple peeps who were planning on coming but aren't signed up on the calendar. So I just to remind everybody of what Stacy said above... you must be signed up for the event on the Evergreen calendar. We only have enough food and shuttle space for the 60 signed up. Please spread the word. Thanks!

We're hoping to do another one of these "dig, eat, shuttle" events in May, and will try to have demo bikes for that one. Stay tuned.

See you tomorrow!

Cheers,
Mike

That whole zone, while a challenge to build in, may end up being some of the better on the mountain--at least for now. At a minimum the three new trails offer an alternative to climbing to the top to get a loop in. And if what folks saw only whets your appetite for more trails on the mountain, volunteer for upcoming work parties.

Such an awesome event! Very little rain during the morning work party -- followed by a lot of rain over lunch (under the tents and tarps so not bad) -- followed by minimal rain during the ride. Lotsa work done and lotsa fun had!

84 volunteers signed in. Roughly a dozen support volunteers doing parking, gatekeeper, bbq, raffle, schwag, keg, tarps, tents, shuttling, etc. So way over our 60 sign-ups out digging on the trails. Although we ran out of tools (my toes are sore from kicking the dirt), we still got an S-Load of great work done. Huge thanks all!!!
