SORCE bike club executive meeting minutes
March 20 2014

1. Vote to approve January 23 2014 minutes - motion passed
2. Marketing briefing: 2014 DH & XC Jersey vote: approved. 50 SORCE T shirts vote: approved. 2 new SORCE banners & sponsor banner vote: approved. Stickers vote: approved. Washable Tattoos to be looked at as future SORCE promotional product. Toonie race and Endless biking camps posters and webmarketing to take place prior to first race & camps
3. Invergarry update: Alpine will begin Run bike line, green & Blue jump lines construction in mid-late April 2014. SORCE will provide volunteers for final grooming and replanting in affected areas of the park. Invergarry Grand reopening to be planned for June or July(TBD once Alpine has finished) Invergarry tools/wheelbarrows were recently stolen out of our lock box. The City of Surrey will be supplying us with new tools and increasing box security.
4.Port Kells Update: plan for 2014 is to improve pumptrack and overall site drainage. Jumps will receive further dig days to groom them. The possiblity of a SORCE hired contractor will be looked at with cooperation from COS. New signage for SORCE bike club trail maintenance to be installed soon
5.Latimer Update: recently some crossed logs have been removed, further improving access to the existing trails. The 2014 focus is improving park usage and showing a MTB presence in the park. SORCE group ride to be organized soon
6.SSBP update: The City of Surrey recentlt removed some riding hazards (old rotten woodwork etc...) We are working on replacing the woodwork in logical places. New signage for SORCE bike club trail maintenance to be installed soon
The idea was raised for an NEW site plan from a professional Bike Park company such as Alpine Bike Parks. The existing pump track and jump area. Removal of brick wall. increase Bike park site visibility and utilize the space better in the jump area and close to the water tower (with inclusion of a skills area)
The idea of Consistent SIgnage accross all SORCE parks wa raised. replacement of many outdated, weatherworn, and mislabelled signs is a key issue. Alpine Bike Parks was suggested as they are making signage for Invergarry and are familiar with Surrey signage standards and risk assesment.
7. Bike camps update: Six SORCE members passed the MBIT level 1 course from ENdless Biking. We are now capable of offering Intro & LEvel 1 Endless Biking courses in SSBP. We are currently waiting for the business licence and operation permit approval from the COS. Camp exec will work on a schedule for the upcoming season and submit soon
8.Toonie Race update: Race insurance will be purchased before the first race date April 13. Timing software (webscorer) will be purchased and distributed to apprporiate Ipads prior to race. Preregistration info will be place online soon.
9. LMBA coop: We are looking into cooperating with the LMBA LAngley mountain bike assoc. in a similar way to SORCE/SHED coop.

SSBP tree day recap

sorce tree day ssbp

Great day on Saturday! We planted 300 plants with the help of 10 volunteers and 3 hours of work. That is 30 more volunteer hours SORCE has donated in 2014! Thanks for everyone who came out wen on a rainy day. We overplanted a couple of areas where walkers are still braiding (over fresh plants) and then closed off a major braid section of about 40 feet. We are working to restore some of the forest and reduce the maze of trails into something manageable, sustainable and rideable.

SSBP tree planting

tree planitng

SORCE bike club and the City of Surrey are holding a tree planting day in South Surrey Bike Park March 8. The fun starts at 10am. The goal of the day is to further repair trail-braiding in some parts of the SSBP. We will be planting lots of native trees plants and shrubs. This is a great activity for the whole family and an awesome experience to share with kids! Hot drinks and food will be supplied by SORCE. Remember to dress for the weather. We look forward to seeing you there!

Trail day recap

 DSC0113Volunteers at the last trail day in Invergarry bike park DSC0294

 

The recent SORCE trail day in Invergary bike park was a huge success. The day was devoted to hammering out the last few details before we ramp up for the next phase of construction in Invergarry... That's right: an intermediate jump trail is coming to Invergarry. More on that soon... Aaaand, back to the trail day: The last Flow Form lip was moved into position, and the trail was cleared of debris. we logged 44 hours of volunteer time with the thirteen volunteers who showed up to help. We had Daniel from Alpine bike parks show up to guide the day.   We bbq'd some burgers and smokies and slammed some gatorades and water after the hard work was done... Then it was on to a great session of riding the new trail! Massive thanks to all the hard working volunteers and committed riders in Invergarry! See you at the upcoming Tree planting day in SSBP March 8th!
