Volunteer 4/24/10 MMBA "Take a Kid/Adult Mtn Biking"

Postby jsteinberg » April 16th, 2010, 1:39 pm

MMBA needs volunteers Sat., April 24th Lakeshore, 10 – 3 p.m. event time

Volunteers are needed anytime between 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. You do not need to volunteer for the whole time. I will take whatever hours you can spare.

Please join us in kicking off the 2010 Mountain Biking season by introducing the sport to a group of potential new users. The event is MMBA’s “Take a Kid/Adult Mountain Biking” Open House.

I need several riders to pair up and take small groups/families through the marked 5 – 6 miles of trail we are using for the event. This MUST be a positive experience, so be prepared to take breaks along the way. Remember, they may not be used to riding this long or hard. Offer positive tips on riding skills (shifting, logs, etc.) and trail etiquette – especially how to pass and be passed on the trail. Who mentored you when you started? (There is so much to learn)

I also need volunteers to help get waivers signed, grill lunch, and step in wherever there is a need.

Please send me a quick email at Steinbergbiker@gmail.com so I can get a solid volunteer count.

Thanks for helping out at this event! It should be a very rewarding day for all.

I have a green TDM Health and Safety Day coffee mug that someone left at Lakeshore Saturday. I'd really like to get it back to its owner. Sound familiar? Help please.
