Letter: The perks of trail work

Today could be your lucky day. If you come out to volunteer with the Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers on the Van Horn Lookout Trail project, your name goes into a hat for a new $3,700 Yeti ASR Enduro Mountain Bike.

Every time you come out and work on a project, you increase your chances of winning. If you have never volunteered with RFOV and you’re a little hesitant, don’t be. We have jobs for everyone’s ability. We bring the tools, gloves, and crew leaders. You just bring you (and lunch and water). When the work day is done, we’ll drink a toast to your hard work and share a tasty dinner together.

If you hike or bike the local trails, it’s time to do your share of the work to keep them safe and enjoyable. But, hey, if you really can’t spare the time this weekend, we have other projects. And if you’d just rather write a check, we’ll gladly accept that too. Sign up or donate at our website, RFOV.org. BTW, if you’re single, you meet the nicest, community-minded people at RFOV projects.
