Spring Soiree 2013
Thanks for joining us at the Boulder Mountainbike Alliance's Spring Soiree! This annual springtime bash was a great success, due in no small part to your support. Thanks for coming out! We had a blast and are jazzed for another riding season, trail building season, and getting more and better trails on the ground in Boulder County.
At the Soiree, we presented a Lifetime Achievement Award to Jenn Archuleta, the fearless leader of BMA's trailwork team. Through her work at BMA as well as Wildlands Restoration Volunteers, Jenn and countless volunteers have truly transformed the physical landscape of Boulder County through sustainable trails, as well as the political landscape by showing that mountain bikers can contribute to stewardship of our public lands in significant ways.
We also made a big announcement - BMA's application for 501(c)3 non-profit status. This means BMA is now able to accept tax-deductible donations! At the Soiree we raised over $5,000 (with the help of a matching donation) that will go straight into the many amazing projects in front of us in 2013. Thanks to those of you who pitched in when we passed the hat (who knew mountain bikers carried cash?!?).
This event would not have been possible without the generous support of BMA's fantastic event sponsors:
We also want to thank Yann Ropars of YannPhotoVideo for the excellent shots which capture the great times. You can view and purchase photos of yourself and your friends at http://yannr.smugmug.com/Events/April-4-2013-Boulder-Mountain/28775085_rtG8JL.
Onward to victory in 2013 and we'll see you for more parties all summer long!
