And a Reno Pump Track is Born!

Just got this from Kevin Joell (one of the guys leading the charge)!  If you're staying town please stop by to check it out and lend a hand.  Oh, and if you want to check out the details, here's the official proposal with pictures.


Apologies if you have already gotten this info from another source, but we want to make sure the word gets out.  You are getting this message as someone who signed the online support form for the Reno Pump Track a few months ago.  At the time, what seemed like a long way off, happened today; we started moving dirt on the site.  The Mechanized equipment will work through the weekend, but we are in need of people on Monday to help with finish work and dialing in the track!  Here's the info:

TAMBA and the Poedunks are hosting  a community build day on Monday, May 28 (Memorial Day) from 0900 until mid-afternoon. The location is Panther Valley Park, 650 Link Lane, 89506.  There is plenty of room for parking around the corner on Western Drive.  Volunteer to work all or part of the day, every little bit helps.  Monday's work day will involve  the finishing and dialing in of the multiple tracks and jump lines.  Wear Long pants, gloves, and sturdy shoes (no sandals, Teva's, Crocs, etc,). We will be using hand tools and most will be provided. But in case we get 30+ people,  please bring rakes, square shovels, or tampers if you have them(but write your name on them first).  Also, feel free to bring your bikes and helmets for test rides. Don't forget the kids and their bikes!  We need to dial in the kids track, too and I don't fit real well on a strider bike! Black Rock Bicycles will be providing a BBQ Lunch for all volunteers! 

The Grand Opening Party is tentatively scheduled for late afternoon on Friday, June 22.

You can RSVP and invite your friends using this facebook event.

Thanks for your support!
