Glenorchy and Clarence MTB Trail Care
News

This is taken (again) straight from Dirt Art's facebook page, but I thought it was such a good thing that I couldn't resist putting it up ...

"After a long hiatus Dirt Art are now launching a fresh bunch of dates for volunteer works sessions at both Clarence and Glenorchy MTB Parks.  All sessions will run from 0900 onwards, with a free BBQ provided.  BYO tools if you have them, but we will have a supply available.  Both Parks will use their respective shipping containers as a meeting point.  We have scheduled a session for the second Saturday
of each month for consistency.

"There are a few extra sessions towards the end of the program.  For more info or to join our mailing list please email trailcare@dirtart.com.au or phone 0438 310 984. "

The dates for the sessions are:
  • December 8th- Glenorchy MTB Park
  • January 12th- Clarence MTB Park
  • February 9th- Glenorchy MTB Park
  • March 9th- Clarence MTB Park
  • April 13th- Glenorchy MTB Park
  • May 11th- Clarence MTB Park
  • May 25th- Clarence MTB Park
  • June 8th- Glenorchy MTB Park
  • June 15th- Clarence MTB Park
  • June 22nd- Glenorchy MTB Park
At the first Clarence MTB Park session there will be a whole new trail to work on connecting the MTB Park with Belbins Road.
These dates have been added to our Interesting Events calendar.  I hope people can get along.
