Just got this in my inbox on Tuesday, not sure I’ll be able to make it out but it sounds like fun (and a good thing to do as well):
IMBA is coming to Tsali, NC, June 2-3, and you’re invited to join in the special events. Anna Laxague and Jason Wells of the Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew are teaming with SORBA and the United States Forest Service for a weekend dedicated to improving local trails. Come celebrate National Trails Day with IMBA.
The visit features an IMBA Trailbuilding School, an evening social and a group ride. This is your opportunity to rub shoulders with the IMBA Crew while learning all about trailbuilding. Check out the details below and come join in the fun.
You are receiving this email as an IMBA member or contact. Help us get the word out. Please use the “Tell a friend” button below to send this invitation to other area mountain bikers, land managers and trail users. The more the merrier!
If this event is too far away for you to attend, we understand. We sent you this email to not just invite you but also let you know about the important work IMBA is doing in your area.

The last time I was out at Tsali the trails were looking pretty rough after a 24 hour race so I know the work will be appreciated. It takes hard work to keep the Tsali trails fast and scenic and this is a great opportunity to give back!
