Summer Working Bees - Sverre Kaaten Nordic Shelter & Trail Maintenance
Correct working bee dates for 2019 are:
February 9th & 10th
March 2nd & 3rd
April 6th & 7th
May 4th & 5th
June 1st & 2nd
There are approximately 25 maintenance projects and improvements to be made to the Nordic Shelter during the above series of working bees. The Nordic Shelter is becoming busier by the year and efficiencies have to be gained, particularly in the area of storage.
Work varies from preparation for possible construction work to strengthen an outside wall to getting a flash new modern sign for the Nordic Shelter, through to re-painting areas and oiling timber, all requiring varying degrees of expertise and time.
If working around the Nordic Shelter is not your game and you would prefer being in the great outdoors, there is a range of maintenance tasks that need to done out on the trails. Trail audits have already been done for most of the trails so that we can have an organised and efficient start in the 2nd weekend in February. An adjustment to the 5 km trail is planned to make this trail easier and more enjoyable for the majority of skiing public.
So there is always plenty to be done. Having said that, it is also a great social weekend and if you like, to fit in some walking running or cycling in the Snowy Mountains. Canberra Alpine Club has been a great sponsor of the XC community, allowing those who take part in the working parties to stay free of charge. A Saturday night dinner party is usually involved. If you are interested in coming to a work party, please call Peter Ward (0409 338 978) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let him know that you are coming. Call Peter Cunningham on (0477 356 835) or email him at email@example.com to let him know that you want to stay at the CAC lodge.
