Working Bee Sunday, 11th September

Next working bee will be Sunday 11th.  We will be creating a new ‘easy’ deviation about half way down Weta which will bypass the steep chute bit so that grade 3 riders can also enjoy the trail.
 
It would be great to see some new faces helping us out as many hands make light work as they say.
 
Meet at Woolshed on Stratton street at 9:00am, or make your way up Weta if you arrive later.

Working Bee Sunday, 14th August

Hi All.
Next working bee we will be taking a short break from working on Weta to assist GWRC in the park with a Planting Day:

Belmont Regional Park Planting: – Sun 14th Aug -9 am.
Meeting at the Hill Rd car park, top of Hill Rd, Belmont. Lower Hutt.

GWRC need our volunteer help to plant tree seedlings at the bottom of Bull Run. GWRC will supply the seedlings and spades etc.
Its also hoped to have a BBQ food & drink as well.

Bring the kids if their willing and able! This is a good way to give back to the Park and GWRC by not just building trails!

It would be great to have as many people assist as possible!
So If you do not wish to assist in building trails, yet love to ride them, please feel free to assist in this other way.

Hope to see you there!
