Looking for Volunteers

We are still looking for a dedicated club to work Winch Hill one during Sierra Trek. Its kinda remote but it leaves your Saturday open to explore, jump in and go on the river run, ATV run or just enjoy the food, bar, and fun things to do around Meadow Lake.

If winch hill one isnt your idea of a good time but you still want to volunteer, We still have many positions open and we can always use more people.

If your interested please contact Me either by PM, Messenger , Carrier Pigeon , Smoke Signals, Phone, Email, ETC.

seriously pondering this. I have a select group of guys from our shop that would get involved. Just not sure if I would have enough to handle the hill. I would hate to get the prize for being the inexpienced guys that held up the trail on the first hill

My club has been running WH3 for about 7 yrs now. If you have any questions about what it all entails just shoot me a PM and I can give you an idea of what to expect.

I would guestimate that about 10 people could handle WH1 well without killing/burning out anyone.

Here are the requirements for WH1. (this is from the previous club that ran it)

10 to 15 people are needed. Both the trail and the bypass require assistants at all times.

Preparation of the hill is pretty important, best to show up early and figure what needs to be done. You learn as you go. (First run hits WH1 on Thursday)

You only have to be at Winch Hill 1 until Friday after the last trail run clears your hill, You can follow them into Meadow Lake, or ???


That said, camping at WH1 is awesome. The setting is beautiful, intimate and comfortable.
Cell reception is excellent.
Groups working the hill will grow closer and create bonds.
Winch Hill 1 is great; just not easy.

My recommendation is this, If you are experienced wheelers, and have built rigs, Roll into Meadow, on Tues or Wednesday. Drive down to Wh1. Camp, Guide and do your thing. On Friday follow the trail run back to meadow and enjoy any of the other trail runs, food and entertainment on Saturday and Sunday.

If you have any questions feel free to call me.

A lot of folks would be willing to help you prepare for this... myself included.

You're an outpost along the trail, and you guys could really have some fun with it... Rock Zombies had a kickin' Mardi Gras theme (with beads, I saw some grizzled topless dudes that hours of hypnotherapy have not yet helped me forget! ). Four Dice club did an awesome Native American theme a few years back, and people are still talking about the 'Mohawk Tribe.' With a little creativity, some tunes, and a decent stereo, you can really make WH1 memorable, beyond just the tip-to-the-side and nose-to-the-sky mojo.

Steve covered the practical requirements of staffing the hill -- be sure to think about the fun part of 'branding' the hill as your own!
