KCTS September 2022 Newsletter

Greetings from the KCTS!

As the days are getting shorter and the temperatures cooler, we are anxiously awaiting the rains to bring back our favorite tacky fall dirt! Rolling into fall, the KCTS has a couple of dates for you to mark down on your calendars!

October 1st Trail Build Day

Next Saturday October 1st is the second all membership trail build day of the year! The last one was such a success that we are excited to make more progress on the lower section of Dukhobor Draw. We will continue where we left off at the end of the last trail day in an effort to build a new climb connecting lower King George Road with the start of Dukhobor Draw.

Hard and Fast Details :

Who : Anyone of any age who would like to get their hands dirty, learn about trail building and contribute to the local trail network!

When : Oct. 1 at 9am

Where : Meet at 9am at the Centennial Parking Lot for a quick safety and goals debrief then we will drive in a caravan down towards Paterson and walk to the dig site

What to Bring : If yo have them, please bring along with you picks, metal rakes, shovels or clippers. The KCTS has many tools to go around an will kit out anyone who shows up ready to dig! Essentials to pack otherwise are weather appropriate clothing, bug spray, food and water.

Church of Dirt

Church of Dirt is back for the fall! Church of Dirt is the perfect opportunity to get out to contribute to the trail progression week after week. The first Church of Dirt build day happened yesterday Saturday Sept 24th. 

Keep your eye on Bhubble and Facebook for further Chuch of Dirt build days which will be occurring approximately every 2 weeks through the fall.

KCTS AGM Tuesday October 25th

All active members of the KCTS are welcome and encouraged to attend the Annual General Meeting. At the meeting, the KCTS will review trail management projects and successes from this past year. This year's AGM will be happening in person on Tuesday October 25th at 7pm. Location details TBD and will be sent out at a later date. We hope to see you there!
