We are having a workday this Saturday morning 8:00am at the Airline Bike Park (AKA Dixie River).  A few diffrent projects to work on ranging from cleaning up to building Kiosk.  Access by the fire Road at 8101 Dixie River road.  Yellow park gate will be open.  If the weather is nice, bring your bikes for a ride afterwards.

Sorry I won't be able to make it Saturday.  I am helping the scout with his eagle project Saturday morning building the new kiosks for RBP.  If I get done earlier enough I will come over and help.  You should get a good crew.

I will try to join.

Serious question: How does the club get the word out for trail work events like this one? 

I check this forum occasionally and saw it here this morning, but it is not listed on the events calendar or under the "Get Dirty" banner on the homepage, and I would have missed it otherwise. I understand there is an active Facebook page, but I, like many others, am not on Facebook. Wondering if there is another resource for workdays and other events that I am missing?

Thanks, hope to make it tomorrow morning.

I always assumed that all workdays are just posted here in the Trail Work forum. Am I missing something else?

Workdays are posted in various locations; on the Forum in this section, on the webpage events calendar, on the THTB main FB page, on individual trail FB pages, etc.

The larger workdays that are planned well in advanced with multiple trail crew leaders are generally posted in multiple places, potentially with a THTB email newsletter reminder too. Smaller workdays may get posted widely, may not.

So if it's a workday that either needs a lot of people or has enough crew leaders to wrangle large numbers of volunteers it normally makes it out into the communication channels pretty good.

Got it, thanks.

I'm confirmed for the workday tomorrow and look forward to seeing / meeting some of you out there. Bringing a recent CLT transplant with me as well.

It was great to see the trail coming together and put in some shovel time.  I clocked in about 8 miles but that includes some dirt road and backtracking (I passed the same turtle twice).  Looking forward to the next work day.
