RIDE!

The SAMBA events committee is planning a group ride at rattling creek on 07/19 at 11:00am.

We’ll be meeting at the Minnich Hit Picnic Area

Depending on skill levels and the number of attendees we can break into different groups as well. We are going to have burgers and dogs afterwards. After ride "hydration" will be the responsibility of each rider.

If you're not a member come out and meet the SAMBA crew.

If you plan on attending let us know that way we can get a good head count for food.

Governor Dick is having a volunteer trail maintenance day on Saturday July 11, from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon. SAMBA members and non-members will be there to provide some direction. We will meet at the Environmental Center located at 3283 Pinch Road West, Cornwall, PA 17016. We would love for you to come help maintain the trails you ride, or to introduce you to a wonderful trail system in Mount Gretna.

 

A group ride will follow, and we’d love to show you around Governor Dick. The trail work days are a great opportunity to meet other SAMBA members in your area, who’re always welcoming and eager to meet new people.

 

Tools will be provided, but if you have your own pruners and nippers, please bring them along (a request from the Governor Dick staff). Please wear gloves, long pants, and boots. It is always a good idea to bring along water, and whatever snacks you may want.

SAMBA CLUB NEWS

SAMBA recently spent about four thousand dollars on 4 Stihl Power scythes (pictures below), 2 Stihl chainsaws and many new hand tools to support Swatara, Camp Mack, Mt. Gretna, Rattling Creek and in the near future, the Parkway trails in Harrisburg. These tools have already been put to good use by our trail volunteers. Without your memberships and support none of this would be possible. If you have a current IMBA/SAMBA membership, thank you, if your membership may have lapsed, we ask you to please renew and support the work of SAMBA.
