Yep - it's on. After all the controversy and negotiation it's finally time to put shovel to dirt and bring Expresso some glory. More glory, new glory - we'll leave 'former' alone because that could mean too many things.

If you'd like a little background on Expresso or to get a better idea of what we are trying to accomplish click here...

We'll be giving out a handful of BroCards to lucky attendees - just to say thanks.

Expresso Trail Day Details:

When: May 27th @ 9:00 am
Where: Upper Lynn School on Coleman St. Map: Link
What to bring: It would be a good idea to bring some water to drink. If you'd like to bring tools you may but we'll have access to as many as we need as well.
Lunch: We'll be joining the nsmbA's BBQ lunch! There will also be coffee and muffins the AM.
Experience necessary: none. If you are new to trail work we'll have lots of experienced builders there keen to show you the ropes.
Time commitment: That is up to you. If you'd like to ride up to meet us and work for a few hours part way through the day we'd be stoked to see you. If you can stay for the whole trail day great. We generally wrap before 3:00.

The nsmbA will be holding an Executioner Trail Day at the same time. We are going to coordinate with that group for food and shuttles - and have a sweet trail love in!

This is the exact same time and location as the nsmbA trail day for Executioner. Will there be a fight for which group gets the most volunteers? This could be interesting… :argue:

I guess the 27th is trail day across the province! Mossom Creek on Eagle will be getting some work done through TORCC, so if you can't make it to the shore, then Eagle needs your help!

OK, I'm officially confused. I saw a whole bunch of people working on Expresso today. Talked to one of the guys and he said MEC adopted the trail. Is tomorrow on Expresso still on?

Digger is leading the MEC TAP crew while Jerry Willows is heading up the NSMB/RockShox TAP effort. Hopefully with two full TAP seasons we can get Expresso running sweet!

A big turnout for both Expresso and Executioner trail days and a BBQ lunch at the 6th thanks to Mathew Bond and the NSMBA. We got a hell of a lot of work done on Expresso today… trail day report to come. Thanks all for coming out and putting some shovels to dirt!
