Happy Wednesday EVMA!!

Hurry up!! You have until 7pm this evening to register for the douthat camping trip this weekend!!! Douthat State Park Camping Trip registration cost is $40 per tent. http://evma.wildapricot.org/event-1702287 Saturday morning a group is planning a ride around the park on the race course, which should be an exciting ride. Anyone who wants to start their weekend early can check the Facebook page for planned rides. Snowshoe or Carvins Cove locations are possible.

Group rides for this month will be at York River State park on saturday and new quarter on sunday, 9am. Setp 20 and 21 there will not be an official group ride because of the douthat trip.

The William & Mary Cycling team will be having a race in the park this Sunday, Sept. 14th from 8am-2pm. They have reserved trails D&E during this time, so the trails will not be open to the public.

There is a trip to Warrior Creek scheduled for October 10-13. If you are interested check facebook for details or email advocate@evma.org.

September 28th is National Public lands Day. While in the past Kirk has always spearheaded this, he will be unable to attend this year. We are still planning on getting a group together to do some trail maintenace. Watch next weeks email for details!!

Even though this years EVMBAfest had to be canceled, we are working on starting to plan for next years. This weekend at the camping trip will be an informal meeting to discuss ideas.

Trail captains: We would like to get a list of all necessary maintenance needs for us to try to take care of this fall/winter. Email Harry or mike if you have any suggestions (trails@evma.org). We know that Wahrni needs some reroutes/bridges over some muddy sections. Harwood mills is looking at some rerouts on Trail A and a way to connect trail A and B. Upper county will be needing alot of trimming.

The tidewater challenge will be coming up at the end of October! Keep watch for details for volunteers to help clear the course.
