EVENTS COMING UP

April 26-29, 2018 – It’s not too late . . . EVMA spring trip to the Allegrippis Trails at Raystown Lake in Pennsylvania.  The group will stay at the group site in the Meadow Camp at Seven Points.  Registration is still open at www.evma.org.  Cost is $45 per camper in a tent, $55 per camper in an RV. Please also register as a non-camper if you plan to attend but stay elsewhere.  We usually plan on group potluck dinners on Friday and Saturday nights. 

Thank you to Justin Hlavin and Eric Van Dusen for coordinating this trip.  

April 29, 2018 – Youth bike race a New Quarter Park.  Registration begins at 12:30; races start at 1:30pm.  Bring out your children to join in the fun or just come out to cheer on these future racers.  Please also consider helping with the fundraiser (see below).

May 5, 2018 – Group ride and Dirt Divas ride at 9am at York River State Park followed by monthly meeting and lunch at one of the shelters (not sure exactly which one yet).

May 12, 2018 - Please join us for a trail work day at Freedom Park.  Meet in the parking lot by 9:00 AM and we’ll try to be done around noon.  Bring work gloves and water and prepare to ride into the worksite.  We’ll provide the tools and work on an eroded, bumpy section, doing a small re-route and possibly some dirt moving to repair the trail and divert water flow.  If you ride and enjoy the trails please consider pitching in to help maintain them.  Never attended a work day before?  No problem – just show up and we’ll walk you through it.

OTHER NOTES

EVMA/Weekend on Your Wheels Fundraiser - For the last few years EVMA has contributed to Weekend on Your Wheels to help pay for the season end celebration. This year the club and Colonial Revolutions have pledged $200.  The opening day race at WOYW saw a record 84 racers show up. It was a great day. Crystal Dawn Richardson and Bryan Findley have done a tremendous job organizing the race.

The volunteers do a wonderful job helping out. EVMA would like to raise $500 for the season end celebration so we are asking for donations.  If you would like to help, you can go to evma.org and click donate. When you do, click general fund and put Weekend on Your Wheels in the notes.  You can also mail a check to our corporate address: EVMA 116 Old Stage Road, Toano, VA 23168 or come out to New Quarter this Sunday at 12:30 for the race and drop a donation off at the registration table.

EVMA is a 501c3 charitable organization, all donations are tax deductible.  We have had a few donations so far but still need more.  Don't make Jim beg!  Thank you.

Volunteers Still Needed – There are a number of board members who need to step down, so volunteers are needed for the club to continue.   Please contact Jim Irby at president@evma.org if you can help in any way.

Wahrani Trail – The first Bridge on the return from Grave Yard loop after power lines is completely out.  Be careful if you are riding that trail.
