CFSORBA Seeks Volunteers to staff Booth Feb 4th
Cape Fear SORBA is also seeking volunteers to help us spread the word about our volunteer activities here in the Cape Fear region. On Feb 4th Star News will host the 2012 Conscience fair just down the street from Blue Clay at the North Campus of Cape Fear Community College.
There will be two shifts at the fair. One from 9:30am to 12:30pm and then from 12:30pm to 3:30pm. We would like to see two people per shift. These shifts are obviously suggestions. We can work with you on the schedule if you would like to volunteer. All promotional and display materials will be dropped off and picked up so you won’t have to worry about transporting anything but yourself. In addition, this event is so close to Blue Clay all you have to do is bring the bike and go ride when you are done!
Our goal with events like this is to simply spread the word about what Cape Fear SORBA is doing in both New Hanover and Brunswick counties. We want more people reading about us, riding the trails, and volunteering. We would be very happy if we were able to get someone to signup for a club membership at this event but just spreading the word is a great way to draw interest.
So if you are interested in helping out at the 2012 Conscience Fair please email us at email@example.com and let us know what shift you would like to work. Remember that this is volunteer work to!
Don’t forget to Donate!
Also please if you can donate to help Tripp complete his mission to the National Bike Summit March 20th-22nd. You can do so by clicking on the link below and donating to Cape Fear SORBA!
That’s all for now CFSORBA! Don’t forget that the first race in the CCORS race series is taking place NEXT weekend at the Brunswick Nature Park. Hit our meetup.com page to RSVP or just show up! We will see you there!
Trail Building Days this weekend
This weekend we are again holding trail building days at the Brunswick Nature Park. We have had tremendous turnouts so far and we hope that we will see similar again this weekend. We have made great progress building the advanced section of trail at the Brunswick Nature Park and we hope to continue the momentum!
On Saturday President Greg will be leading the workday while VP Austin will lead on Sunday. Please bring shovels and/or rakes with you and CFSORBA will provide additional tools. You can come out for as long as you like. Any bit of work helps. Please remember to meet at the END of the dirt road going straight past the picnic shelter. If you have any questions about how to find the trail please let us know ahead of time if you can. Once you find the trail just start walking (if you come late) and you will walk right to us! Both workdays start at 9am and run till we run out of work/volunteers.
CCCORS Series kickoff coming Jan 29th
Of course there is also the first race in the Coastal Carolina Off-Road Race Series coming up as well! This will be the first time that the Brunswick Nature Park will play host to an event as a part of the series and we would love to see as big a turnout as we had for the Brunswick Brawl (or even bigger!). You can find event details under the events tab on the navigation bar of capefearsorba.com or you can visit ecvelo.org. Lets get the series off to a rockin start!
And then there was a delegate…
Lastly I would like to announce that Cape Fear SORBA has found its delegate to attend the National Bike Summit. Many of you who have volunteered at the various trail days at the Brunswick Nature Park know Tripp. Those of you who have ridden there but never met him also know him in a different way. He has smoothed out countless bumps in sections of the intermediate trail and has spent countless hours at the park. We are honored to send such a deserving club member to the National Bike Summit.
As far as the summit goes the club is seeking donations to help pay for Tripp’s expenses while in DC. Any little bit helps. So that being said, you can donate to help Tripp’s …trip to DC by clicking on the following link and donating to Cape Fear SORBA via paypal. You can also click on the donation button now found on the sidebar of the Cape Fear SORBA website.
Thanks again everyone. Don’t forget to RSVP using our club meetup.com page to any of the upcoming events like the Trail Building Days or the CCORS Race. We are excited about what the future holds for 2012 and look forward to it being even more successful than 2011.
I say we should enjoy the ride.
