Help build Corral trail

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!

Spring Party – April 24th

Join us Wednesday April 24th at 6pm at the American Legion in South Lake Tahoe for our Spring Party.  We’ll be giving away free tshirts for membership sign ups and renewals.  We’ll also have a raffle and updates on 2013 Events and Projects.  See you there!

 

Vote for Corral to win the Bell Built Grant!

Update 4/13/2013 – In the Facebook voting we finished in second place, 1% behind Burke Mountain in Vermont.  This does not mean we will not win the grant however.  The winning projects will be based on their merits and we certainly feel Corral Trail has a lot of merits!  Final decision will be announced on April 19th, stay tuned.
TAMBA gained huge support from across the country from this PR blitz and we’d like to thank everyone that supported us, got the word out, and is now motivated to help out.  We have many projects in the works and need all the help possible.  Thanks community!

We are one of the finalists in the Bell Built Grant! This means we might win our share of $100,000 split between 3 projects and have IMBA Trail Solutions come here to help build out all the proposed features on Corral Trail (jumps, berms, hips, tables, rock features).
Once complete the Corral Trail will be a model for how trails with mountain bike features can legally be built in public forests around the country! Vote TODAY and SHARE with your friends.:
