WORK PARTY: EMBA at Port Gamble

Cross the political aisle and do something we can all agree on...trail maintenance
BRIBERY..just like our good old boys DC we will have a dozen Sluys donuts and hot coffee to start us of. 

But wait there's more.  

Weather permitting we will BBQ in the parking lot to re-energize from all the trail work

We need a solid turn out for this day so we can split into groups and bang out several trails in one day. This is in preparation for the Port Gamble MTB race on 3/26. Over 100 racers will be on our trails and we want them prepped and ready to show off.

Trail work list
Outer Limits: Cutting of salal and other brush mainly trail entrance

Lite Speed: Cutting of salal at entrance and last 1/3

Bobsled: Removal of organic materials and drain lines at some low spots

Mordor: Just the upper portion from the fire road to the Bypass (Cut off) trail this is being used for the upcoming race remove and limbs overhangs and organic materials as needed

Big Rose: Solid brushing, limb removal going clockwise from Bypass to the fire road

Clearcut: Needs bypass bridge st north entrance some drains and organic material remove and major brushing to open up the lines of sight

Tools Needed: we have plenty of hand tools, shovels, rakes, pruners etc. If you have gas powered hedge trimmers, weed-eater with brush attachment bring these out. Anything for fast cutting of salal and other trail brush

Come out have some fun and get some delicious food too. If you ride...maintain it
