From IMBA February Newsletter:
The Subaru-IMBA Trail Care Crew (TCC) of Jesse and Lori, along with South Central Regional Director Steve Schneider, converged on IMBA Epic trails in Mt View, AR, the weekend of Feb. 1 to bring love and volunteers out to the Syllamo trails (photo above), which were decimated by a recent ice storm, logging and a lack of attention. IMBA RD Schneider helped form the new Friends at Syllamo Trails volunteer organization (soon to be IMBA Chapter), and solicited help from many Mt View businesses, County Judge Stacey Avey, USFS District Ranger Jim McCoy, Syllamo Ranger Jay Swafford and others to pull together more than 80 volunteers to give some love to Syllamo.
The three days on site went smoothly; more than 50 people participated in the TCC classroom presentation, while others donated time to cook food, provide support, work on more than 15 miles of trail, and provide bluegrass music and massages for weary volunteers. All of the new, area IMBA chapters were represented: OORC, CATA (Central Arkansas Trail Alliance), MORC (Midwest Off-Road Cyclists), FAST (Friends At Slaughter Pen Trails), as well as Wes Wright, Denny Hess and Andrea Wilson, key members of Friends at Syllamo. Syllamo will have monthly scheduled work weekends to help keep these trails "Epic."
