Last year we had such a great turn out and everyone seemed to have a great time being a part of the parade that we decided to do it again! We raised a good amount of funds that helped pay for dirt, tools, and more for the local CROCT trails. Most impressive though was the multitude of people asking what’s CROCT? That starts a conversation about who/what CROCT is and what this volunteer organization is doing in/for Rice county.
With your help we can continue to get the word out and get more people interested in riding and supporting local trails! Join us September 10th in the Defeat of Jesse James Day parade as a CROCT volunteer!
For those of you whom will be new to this here is what to expect and what is expected of you:
#1 Wicked cool new T-shirt to wear this year!!! Which will be handed out at the starting point at cornerstone church!
#2 March in a parade, carry a banner, make memories, wave to folks along the way, and enjoy the company of great people! (laughing with your “Banner Buddy”!) We will begin staging at 1 pm! Ready, set, go, to march at 2pm (make sure to arrive by 1:30 to grab a shirt, sign waiver, heckle the pre parade pep talk, and be assigned a banner)! We will begin staging at 1 pm, in the parking lot of Cornerstone Church (Google map link).
Children are welcome!
#3 Smiles and looking like you Love biking and trails (easy!)!
Remember: We need at min 76 people to help out but the more people we get the less trips you have to make down the parade route!
WHY SHOULD YOU DO THIS???
We need to get the word out about CROCT in order to raise funds to support our active and expanding trail building and mountain biking education projects. If you like what CROCT is doing in your area this is a great way to support this volunteer organization and we can’t do this without you!!! Who doesn’t love to experience a parade from the inside out!
