Catawba Workday!
WHAT: 3-Hour Trail Building Event
WHEN: Sunday August 6th, 2006 / 8:00am-11:00am
WHERE: Meet at NALL or at the back of the USNWC Parking Lot at 8:00am.
HOW TO GET THERE: Directions Below
BRING: Plenty of water, boots, pants, and a garden tool such as a shovel, pick, pruners, or metal garden rake. The Trailblazers provide a limited number of cool fire fighting hand tools like the Pulaski, Mattock, and Mcleod to those adventurous enough to try. Actually they are way more efficient and fun to use!

The trail system at the USNWC exists because of volunteer support. Become a part of the USNWC trail system and help reconnect the trails. Under the direction of the Tarheel Trailblazers the volunteer goal of the August 6th trail event is to gather the majority of support from the heartbeat of the project including USNWC, Liquid Designs, and Rodgers Dooley. Please come, grab a friend and lend a hand for a few hours. It is truly amazing what can be done in 3 hours as shown during the last trail event. Speared on by REI the last trail event provided 49 volunteers including 35 from REI, 4 from USNWC, and 11 from Tarheel Trailblazers. With the knowledge of the Trailblazers, volunteers gain an understanding of sustainable trail building techniques and add to the unique singletrack trail system at the USNWC.

ASAP please RSVP to if you and any others will attend. We will have to prepare for the number attending. Please join in reestablishing the USNWC trail system. Your efforts will be a strong step in meeting the goal of reconnecting the 11 miles of trails. Thanks for your time and consideration!
