Dirty Dozen Workday & VIP Ride/Run/Hike at Waterloo

May 18, 2016 5:38 pm

We have a dozen 4 x 4 x 8 Wood Confidence Marker Signage Posts to sink at Waterloo before the Grand Opening of the Trail on June 16th.   In order to accomplish this, we are making an “event” out of it.

We need 12 hearty individuals, couples or teams willing to bring 3 things for this event:  a handheld post-hole digger, a shovel and two six-packs of their favorite craft beer.

Our Waterloo Trail Crew will pre-flag the exact locations where these poles need to be sunk along the first five mile trail loop, and leave a post at that location.  Upon arrival at the Waterloo Trailhead, each individual/couple/team will be assigned a flagged location.  They will put their two six-packs in the “pot” (a.k.a. the coolers in the back of a pickup truck) and will head out to their assigned location to sink their post according to instructions given on-site.  Upon finishing, they will make their way back to the trailhead, where each team will receive 12 different craft beers which were put in the “pot”.   We will then do a special “Pre-Grand Opening” VIP Ride, Run or Hike of the trail, and maybe even drink a beer from the dispersed kitty of beer in the parking lot. (No beer drinking before the work and ride!)

Participation will be limited to the first 12 individuals/groups/teams signing up on the Sign-Up Genius page.  If you don’t drink beer, but would still like to participate, please contact us at mtbwaterloo (at) outlook (dot)(com).

Again, the Date/Time of the event will be:   Thursday, June 2nd at 6pm.

Meet at the new Waterloo Trailhead and Parking Lot.  The Trailhead is located on M-52 (Stockbridge-Chelsea Road) approximately 5 miles North of Downtown Chelsea and 1/2 mile South of North Territorial Road on the West side of the road.  You can access M-52 either at the I-94 exit for Chelsea, or, via US-23, taking the North Territorial Road exit and continuing West down North Territorial 17.5 miles to M-52.


PLEASE DON’T FORGET A POST-HOLE DIGGER AND SHOVEL.  A level may also be helpful. (These will not be provided, so if you don’t have one, hit up a friend who does, or, your local Hardware Store.)

PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO BRING YOUR TWO SIX-PACKS FOR THE KITTY (Please bring a favorite craft beer to contribute and not Stadium Lagers from Macro-Breweries who are “not backing down” such as Budweiser, aka “America”, Bud Light, Miller Lite, Michelob Ultra, etc.)
