Trail work or volunteers hours are required

If you want a shot at a individual or team title this year, you need to ensure that you log the required number of trail and/or volunteer hours - others may volunteer for you, but what better way to know what it takes to keep a trail awesome or an event going then by stepping up and doing some work yourself?  Heck at a few of these volunteer days, they give you FREE food (thank you Global Bikes).  Here are the requirements for the year:
Trail and/or Volunteer hour minimums:
Individual - 4hrs
Team - Big Ring - 40hrs
Team - Little Ring - 20hrs
Log Trail Hours - 

Thanks for helping keep our trails in good shape!

Where – AZ Trail – Reavis Mountain – Passage 18b
7:00am – Check in
7:00am – 3:00pm Trail work
DESCRIPTION - Join Arizona Trail Association Segment Steward Craig Gregory and other hardy volunteers as we take revenge on the infamous cats claw on AZT Passage 18b.  It isn’t too bad just yet but a little work now will save a lot of work later.  Tasks will include pruning and grubbing out the roots of this particularly nasty bush, as well as some light tread work.
MEET:  We will meet at 7:00AM at the parking area one-quarter mile off Highway 60 on Queen Valley Road.  Coordinates are 33.259041 111.300623.
Plan to carpool from there for the arduous climb up Forest Road 172 and 650 towards the AZT/FR 650 junction, 33.40541 111.156321, just short of the summit of Montana Mountain. We’ll need a couple high clearance vehicles to ferry the crew up the mountain.
WHAT TO BRING:  Bring gloves, hat, sun screen, etc. and protective clothing (long sleeves and pants recommended when doing battle with cats claw), tools (rake, mcleod, pruning shears etc), snack and plenty of water.  We will work downhill grubbing out the occasional encroaching sticker bushes and tending to some minor drainage issues and tread work.  Depending on how far we get, total elevation loss could be as much as 1800 feet, so remember that you have to walk back up!
LUNCH:   (Subway, specify meat or veggie when you sign up) will be provided.  We’ll plan to work till around 2:00PM and then hike back UP to the vehicles for the drive down the mountain.  RSVP for additional details, to reserve your lunch and to let us know if you can drive up the mountain. 
RSVP:  If interested, please contact Craig Gregory for further details at or check in at the Facebook event page HERE
