Bluff XC Trails working Bee

Saturday 9am.

With the National Secondary School Champs only a couple of months away, we're shifting into high gear to make our trail network on Bluff Hill amazing. At this working bee we will be focusing our efforts graveling some new sections of track and on cutting back overgrown vegetation on the trails used for the races so that they hold up to the expected numbers.

Park at Pierce Street car park and we'll organise a few crews to different sections of the hill. Bring a shovel, rake, grubber and a can do attitude
