Trail building tools are on site. We just need people to put them to use! Bring gloves. Lots of dirt to sculpt and compact!

Bring your bike if you like, but it won't be ready for wheels 'til late in the day/evening.

A length of hose would be handy toward the end of the day. We watered the dirt for over an hour on Wed evening, and only the top few inches were wet!

Not sure how late the build will go on Thurs. Griff will provide progress updates during the day. Last year it went late enough that the TTURD riders rolled through and did some "compacting" in the evening.

Ed, you can come encourage folks, even if you're not allowed to play!

I'll be there about 6:00 tonight, and can work as late as necessary... I'll check back in later to see if there is still work to be done.

We've been riding it for the last 2 hours! A few tweaks to do but we've been having a blast  8)  Needs more tires on it though.

Well.. Since it's done, I'm just going to go home to the wife and win brownie points tonight since I'm volunteering at the show tomorrow afternoon...
Good job getting it done though!
