Today we got everything ready for a great dig day tomorrow. If you’re coming out to help, expect to do some raking and packing. Also! Expect to ride the expert and mini pump tracks. Details after the jump.
I have photos from today — awesome impromptu grom jam session! — but I’m gonna try to go to bed early. Tired braaap!
Here’s the dig-day announcement from volunteer coordinator Aaron Atwell:

The time is near, the dirt awaits your efforts, our park is calling you!
Our first big volunteer build day is this weekend 3/12/11 & 3/13/11, From 9:00 – 5:00
Under the expert guidance of Lee McCormack from Lee Likes Bikes we’ll be forming pump tracks, building jumps, and completing the very important task of getting the rocks out! Show up when you can – people will be coming and going so a consistent flow of help will keep us digging for the whole day. We’ll have some food and drinks provided by local businesses as well as some excellent prizes!
Important Items for our work – please bring any that you have (don’t worry if you don’t have tools we have extra!);
• Flat shovel – spade will do
• Wheelbarrow – 5 gallon buckets will work as well – there are many rocks to be removed!
• Push broom
• Gloves to protect the hands during hard work
• Bikes – part of the compaction process involves watering and riding the track – Lee said riding will be happening this weekend!
I’ll have balloons out to mark where we’re working so people can see it from Rock Creek Pkwy.

All you hard cores – we all know it’s going to be a weekend of good riding weather – we still need you!
Best riding regards!
