The Dirt Junkie Photo & Video Contest
Fortune, fame, and admiration. That’s what’s waiting for you when you enter the 2016 Dirt Junkie Photo and Video contest. Past winners have gone on to work for local bike shops (probably true), bike manufacturers (maybe true), and National Geographic (blatant lie). The rules of engagement can be found here. Each year the Washington MTB community continues to step up its game with the submissions, and we’re excited to see what you come up with this year. Submission deadline is January 28th!
Beer + Cider + Brats = A Good Time Formula
It’s simple math. Our Trailwork Sponsors at Two Beers Brewing Co. and Seattle Cider Co. have made sure beverages are waiting for you when you finish up a work party—now they’re here for the actual party. With a variety of excellent beverages to please any palate, Two Beers and Seattle Cider will be stocking us up for the evening’s festivities. And your first beer is on us with the purchase of your ticket (if you’re 21+, junior)—after that beer is available for purchase to help fund trails.
The Not-So-Silent Auction
Silent is not our style, but we’ll try. Tune-ups from Bike Works in Seattle? Hydration systems from Platypus? Flash 18 Backpacks from REI? Oh, my. Just like last year, we’ll be auctioning off a bunch of cool gear that promises outdoor fun and helps us fund our 2016/17 projects. Donations for the auction are still rolling in as we speak; if you’re a business, bike shop, or manufacturer interested in donating, it’s not too late—contact Bryan today.
Unlike the similarly acronym-ed Center for Disease Control, the Cascadia Dirt Cup is spreading enduro fever across Washington. And not only will they be unveiling the 2016 race schedule in early February—they’ll be offering the opportunity for 50 signups at Winter Stoke! So make sure to get there early to sign up for the series that sells out every year! Buy your tickets to the 2016 Winter Stoke Party today and get ready for a great time!
PS: We Still need volunteers! If you’d like to join the party for free, get a free beer, and POSSIBLY a volunteer t-shirt if you really sweat, register on VolunteerSpot here.
