The Greater Bragg Creek Trails Association is holding a Fundraiser 6:00 pm March 12 at the Snowbirds Chalet on Balsam Avenue (immediately after the mall). Funds raised will go towards development of new trails in the West Bragg Creek area. The evening features a Chili Dinner, Silent Auction, Scuzzy and the Woodticks musical entertainment, and an opportunity to meet and thank the Bragg Creek volunteers for their tracksetting and trail-building efforts.
Tickets are $20 and can be obtained by phoning Elizabeth at 403-949-4995. Pay by credit card and pick up tickets at the door. Hurry! There are only a few tickets left.
The GBCTA recently purchased a new snowmobile and groomer using funds raised through an e-mail campaign and by word of mouth. They also obtained approval last fall for an all season trails plan for expanding and upgrading of the West Bragg Creek trail system to better meet the needs of all types of non-motorized users while reducing impacts on the local watershed. The plan includes 40 km of new summer trails, eight km of snowshoe trails and 17 km of new ski trails, as well as other improvements.
