$7,000! Yep, we’re on our way to funding a modular, portable pump track, thanks to the Northfield YouthBank and Northfield High School mountain bikers (L to R) Christof Zweifel, Ellis Orjala, and Patrick Welch:
Last summer, Jason Decoux (CROCT member, Founding Supporter, and regular trail worker) submitted a CROCT grant request to his employer, SageGlass (SAGE Electrochromics). The company annually invites employees to nominate local non-profits to receive a monetary donation. Their Community Gift/Giving Committee reviews the submissions and the the company hosts a dinner to honor the recipients and hand out the checks. We were notified a month ago that the request was approved.
Marty briefly updated the audience on the work our volunteers have done on constructing mountain bike trails in Rice County in the past year. And he was handed at check for $345 which we’ll use to purchase some much-need trail tools.
Unfortunately, Jason wasn’t able to attend due to an emergency at work. We drank a beer in his honor.
