You guys may know that the Bike Bash is being moved to Flatwoods this year. Here's the flyer with the info:http://www.bicyclebash.com/
SWAMP will have a booth and we will be coordinating and guiding some rides.
I've volunteered to coordinate SWAMP's participation but could really use some help. I've never even been to the FTF so I could use some guidance.
We'll need volunteers to set up the booth then shifts throughout the day. Folks need to be friendly and eager to share with people who come by what SWAMP is and all the wonderful things we do.
I understand that we have a pop up tent (what size?..do we have any tables?) and easel and stands with pics. Will need to update those, make sure we've got the latest pics from the latest trips that have been taken...also, pics of races and trail building and work days and socials. Had thought about having a computer with a slide show, but unless it's in the shade, it can't be seen.
We'll need to arrange ride guides; I envision several different levels of rides. Garry said at the FTF there was an explanation of each ride, duration, and skill level needed.
Our purpose is to recruit new members, right? The more folks that get involved and fork over that $20 a year, the more SWAMP can do. We can buy better equipment to build and maintain the trails we all love. In order to do that, we've got to create a fun booth.
I welcome any and all help and ideas.
I know it is a long way off, but it's not too early to start planning.
If you're interested, please let me know.
