June 14th (Carson City): We’re partnering with Muscle Powered Carson City to work on the new Ash to Kings Canyon Trail on Friday evening, June 14th. Meet at 5:30pm on Ash Canyon Road in Carson City where it turns from gravel to dirt near the water tanks. We’ll caravan/carpool up the hill, hike in, build for a couple hours then hike out and solve all the world’s trail problems over cold refreshments.
June 16th (South Lake Tahoe): We’ll be working on the popular Cold Creek Trail in South Lake Tahoe. It’s Father’s Day, so let’s rustle up some father-son/daughter teams! Join us for a BBQ and drinks afterward. We’ll be heading in from the High Meadow dirt road trail head – join us for all or part of the day.
June 29th (Tahoe City): We’ll be hosting a trail day in conjunction with Adventure Sports Week. Meet at 9am at Tahoe XC at 925 Country Club Drive in Tahoe City.

The trail day is sponsored by Olympic Bike Shop and Gravity Shop.

In case you weren’t on Facebook for the last month here’s the scoop. TAMBA applied for the Bell Built Grant in February 2013 to build out all of the proposed features on Corral Trail in South Lake Tahoe. In April, after a long Facebook voting contest we lost by just 1 stinking percent to some bike park in VT. But don’t despair we are moving forward to get this model project with the US Forest Service built!
We are raising the money ourselves to get this project done right. The money will be used to rent machinery, buy tools, feed and fuel our volunteer trail builders and hopefully even hire a few pro trail builders.

Wondering what you can do to help build Corral Trail even though we didn’t win the grant? Help Erik and Dan (from Salesforce) reach the 15k goal! The super AMAZING at people Salesforce Foundation will match donations dollar for dollar up to 15K – 30k total!
So your $5 tax deductible donation turns into $10, or your $50 donation turns into $100, or your $1,000 donation turns into $2,000. You get the picture, now let’s get Corral built!
