When: The 2012 TAKMBD event will take place October 6th, from 10 a.m. til 2 p.m.
Where: Broemmelsiek Park
Directions and Park description are available at the Broem Park link.
What is TAKMBD? IMBA's explanation is here.
My version: It's an introduction to mountain bike riding that is oriented towards younger riders. We have 7 different skill stations set up for the riders, with each mimicking a situation they are likely to encounter while riding off-road. Once the rider has completed the skill section, they can join GORC led tour of the less technical trails @ Broem.
There will be free bike inspections (required prior to riding the skills course), and goodie bags to the first 100 to sign up. For more information or to pre-register (there will also be on site registration), please contact St. Charles County Parks at 636-949-7535 or visit www.stccparks.org.
What we need: LOTS of GORC people to show up and help out. There are three primary areas where we need assistance during the event, (but help setting up/tearing down will be appreciated as well). The three areas where we require help are:
