Stump Grinder Dirt Club Needs You! For The Kids

Dear Trail Users,

Many of you have heard of NICA (the North American Cycling Association) and our local Santa Barbara County High School team of 12 youths from Carpinteria, San Marcos, Dos Pueblos, Rhigetti and St. Joseph's High schools that have been competing in the SoCal League against 22 other high school groups. Many of you wanted to come out and help these kids this winter/spring but just couldn't on a regular basis.

Well, now they are needing your help for just 4 hours of trail maintenance this Saturday from 8 -12 noon as Santa Barbara County will get ready to showcase the State's finest riders
in the California State Championship High School Mountain Bike State Finals. This is the first time SoCal has hosted Norcal and the State race as some 450 riders are expected to converge on Charlotte's Meadow at the Chamberlain Ranch off Zaca Station Road in Los Olivos. Can you help us to get the course ready for XC racing? Can you show the area's XC youth that you appreciate they are out riding after school, working to stay fit, and learning trail etiquette at the same time?

Please help by sending your RSVP e-mail to race producer Mike Hecker: Hecktone@yahoo.com

We thank you!! Jeff Harbison/Dan Cortina, coaches for Santa Barbara's County High School MtB XC Team

WHAT: 4 hours of trail work in exchange for satisfaction, a free lunch and prize raffle and a chance to ride this magnificent set of trails afternoon.
