Thanks to Forty Distro for hooking this one up, basically the winner of this auction gets their pick of a 2010 Deluxe Frame. So go here and bid on this sweet ebay auction which benefits the woods. Also dont forget the Bike Night at the main gate is on Tuesday weather is looking good for that…
So I think there’s some confusion on stuff, Catty Woods is non-profit organization, I know people are weary to donate money and help out cause they think “oh these guys are just trying to make some money for themselves”. Its totally not like that, will never make money off the woods, its a complete non profit to keep the trails running every year. Its great the help we do get but its just not enough. If people want proof and documents on our costs of insurance and non profit status we can provide it. Call us sell outs or whatever you want but we have legit trails that will never get plowed as long as we pay for the insurance. One big event or contest down there can pay for the woods for years to come. The fund raising we do ourselves helps out a lot, but you get burnt out on it, and too many people come along and just expose the woods for themselves and make some money and don’t even help us out. From now on if you expect to take photos or film for a video and its gonna be published you will have to pay a fee. I mean if people are taking a few photos for a day and get payed 500 dollars for that the least you can do is throw a little of that money our way. I’m not saying everyone does this, but the few people who help out is awesome and we cant thank everyone enough for what they have done for the woods. Now you can go on and rant out about the big time companies that wont help out the little guys, but hopefully somehow will talk to the right people and all this money we need will be a thing of the past and the trails will be funded for years to come. and once again thanks to everyone who has helped we wouldn’t of made it this far, support the companies that are linked on the right side as they have helped us out….
The bike night at the Main Gate got moved to next Tuesday which is the 29th, same deal as before 6-10pm, etc. Good trail sessions lately, weather is awesome. Now for some not so good news, money funds are running low and if we dont come up with enough money for insurance by October the trails will be shutdown. We try to raise and get as much money as possible but its just not enough to keep us going. We made a portfolio for companies to check out to hopefully help us out, all we need is one big company to help out and things will be good. I guess we just dont know the right people and hopefully someone can guide us in the right direction to talk to the right people. So send us an email if you can help and you know the right people to talk to for some big companies and please pass on the portfolio. thanks
First official day of summer today but its felt like summer already with this crazy heat lately. First off check the orchid site for details on the jam coming up for the 4th. Finally got to watch the Deluxe DVD and the Compression DVD, great trail dvds, get yourself copies if you can. It nice to see all trail riding videos, you dont see that much anymore and the scene over in France and England, just seems insane right now, tons of trails all over the place.
