Canada Cup Course Prep 05 Jul 14

Rob will be at the Naughton Trails on Saturday 05 Jul 14 8:00 am - 12:00 PM  to begin the final course preparation for the Canada Cup the following weekend. There are still a couple of small tasks to complete and all of the trails used for the race course have to be trimmed and raked / blown off. We are hoping you will come out and lend a hand. This event is a major source of revenue for WMBC and a showcase event for the city this year. If you have a good weed trimmer and a leaf rake, we could sure use a your help.

New Trails To Open Soon!!!

WMBC has negotiated a land use agreement with Nathaniel Misouri and Sophie Guerin. They are the new owners of the land formerly owned by Ed Santala. This will allow WMBC to re-open the cool trail that runs from the two way section of ski trail and hooks up onto North Shore. This will avoid the always wet section of ski trail with all the boardwalks we had in place last year. We are already cleaning up the trail and will have it open in the next week or so. Thank you so much to Sophie and Nathaniel for their support of WMBC.  We have also re-commissioned and re-jigged the Wahoo trail and will have it open in the next week or so. WMBC hopes to bring you a little somethng new every year by adding new trail or re-working existing trails to make them cooler. We have some neat things up our sleeves in the works so stay tuned for more!
