Iowadirt Workshop open to THOR members
Iowadirt is welcoming THOR members to join their workshop with the Subaru / IMBA Trail Care Crew, June 20th at Lake Ahquabi State Park in Indianola.
Friday is a classroom session and Saturday will be in the field.Correction: Saturday is not in the field. Here is what how the director described it:"In short, CITA is hosting a 'summit' with the TCC on Saturday as a way to help all Iowa IMBA affiliates -- separately and collectively -- by sharing best practices in running our organizations and discussing ways we can collaborate to improve Iowa mountain biking. "
SATURDAY Meeting: Iowa IMBA affiliates' summit @ downtown library 9a - 'Club Care' workshop Noon - Lunch (discussion/planning begins) 3p - Adjourn Ride: Center Dinner: Raccoon River Brewing Company Party: 'Freedom Riders' screening at Hotel Fort Des Moines
SUNDAY Ride: Sycamore TT (IMBCS race) @ 10
To support any THOR members who wish to go, THOR is offering $75 towards gas and hotel per group of (4).
For more information and to register, go to http://www.iowadirt.org/blog/embracing-iowa-dirt-event/. Once you register please contact roxzanne(dot)abbott(at)gmail(dot)com so she can get all attendees in contact with each other. One of your party will need to be responsible for organizing travel arrangements and booking a hotel.
As a reminder, THOR will be hosting our own workshop in later summer/early fall but we thought this would be a great addition and also a great way to make connections with neighboring trail crews.
