Thanks to everyone who came out today. We made serious headway sifting, building drains, and sculpting the beginner track. Special thanks to Poje, Chris, John and 'Boon who came out from Jersey to build the beginner track. We owe you guys a frosty few. Kudos to Shannon and Chris, local Parkside Community guys who joined us and our two youngest builders. Next workday is Saturday, Nov 30 10am-1pm.

This toast is for you!
After three years, this project is happening. Harlan, Kenn and I could not be more thankful for all parties involved in making this project a reality. THIS IS MY PERSONAL TOAST to all of the parties old and new to the project. Thanks is all I can say! Monster and Brown's ShopRite donated $10,000 tonight and I'm holding the check. Ms. Lucinda and the Parkside Community have been so welcoming. There are a lot of unforeseen expenses on this build so thanks... from the bottom of our hearts! We are putting kids and families on bikes and that's all that matters.

Jim Wants YOU to Know!
PUMPTRACKS ARE ABOUT...
Social --Physical -- Environmental -- Agricultural
Come on out and feel Jim's passion for making Pumptracks a vital part of the community. He believes that Pumptracks bring people together, provide space for a healthy family lifestyle, encourage site ownership, provide education about storm-water management and environmental stewardship, and provide a space for native plants and fruit trees.
Belmont Plateau Trail Alliance (BPTA) is having a work day tomorrow https://www.facebook.com/pages/Belmont-Plateau-Trails-Alliance/113247685388505 for Love Your Park Day. Please head out there from 10-2 to help them get ready for the World SingleSpeed Cross Championship in December. After the workday drive or ride by the track to check it out.

Volunteer Workdays will be 10am-1pm. We will also be out sifting rocks THIS Sunday, November 17th from 10am-1pm. Come on out with boots, workgloves (we also have some). We will provide rakes, water, snacks and waivers.

Workdays with Jim Dellavalle, Power Corp PHL, Harlan Price, Kevin Clark, Andreina Perez, Jason Mifflin and Nick Esposito
We are both excited to break ground and a bit stressed about the condition of the dirt. There is MUCH work to be done sifting rocks and concrete. Jim is making great progress shaping the track and moving dirt. Below are a few pics from the week. Thanks to everyone who has come out this past week. Jim is on site from 8am-7pm each day Mon - Friday.
