1. OUR FIRST TRAIL WORK EVENT OF 2006 – SATURDAY, JANUARY 7TH

We will be having our first Trail Work Event on Saturday, January 7th brushing and doing some earthwork on the trails in Trabuco Canyon – Holy Jim, Trabuco and West Horse Thief.

We’ll be starting work at 8:00 a.m. staging out of the Holy Jim Parking lot which is located 4 miles up Trabuco Creek Road (the dirt road next to the creek east of O’Neill Park) from Trabuco Canyon Road.

You supply gloves, water and snacks for during the work (and a beach chair for afterward) and we’ll provide the tools, as well as food and drink for when the work quits at 2:00 p.m.

Please RSVP to help insure there is enough food for everyone.

2. POSITIONS LEFT IN THE 2006 VISION QUEST AND COUNTING COUP

To help those considering participating in the 2006 Vision Quest and Counting Coup (the 2006 Mountain Bike Pow Wow Events) we are going to be doing weekly updates on the positions left in each of the events:

Vision Quest – 46 spots left (150 total)

Counting Coup – 31 spots left (100 total)

We are getting on average about 15 to 20 applications a week and hope to sell out the events by mid-January. Bike Magazine will be doing a story on the Vision Quest in their March issue that will be coming out in late January or early February; if there are any spots left this article will probably fill us up.

If you earned a free entry for either the Vision Quest or Counting Coup via your finish in the Sunset Sprints Series, or as a qualifying Warrior’s Society Club Member, we must receive your application before we sell out or the comp will not be honored.

In addition to downloading the Vision Quest and Counting Coup apps off our web site, or registering through Acive.com, you can also register for the Pow Wow Events at Switchback Cyclery in Orange. Switchback Cyclery is located in Orange at 8530 E. Chapman (at Prospect Avenue on the southeast corner about a mile and a half east of the 55 Freeway). Their phone number is (714) 628-3913.

We are in the process of negotiating with two other bike shops in Orange County to be the named sponsors of our other 2006 Events. We will be negotiating with those shops to also allow registration at their shop locations for the events they sponsor.
