First Workday of 2022! Thank you volunteers next workday preliminarily set for Sat March 19th and Sun the 20th

Hello DLV followers,

Our first workday weekend was a success. This season we are changing things up a bit. We had both a Saturday and Sunday workday from 10am to 4pm. Hopefully this allows followers a chance to get their rides in and still be able to participate for a few hours helping the DLV. This also allows for weather flexibility. We have more projects to beautify the velodrome then manhours for a crew of 500. Please feel free to bring your favorite rake, leafblower, pole saw, loppers, and/or shovel.

 

Thank you:

Andy Bailie

Leaves were removed, Bleachers returned to position, Ivy removed from trees, tree debris removed, and a patch to back straight board hole.

 

 

See everyone soon,

Mike Barman

 

2022 Pre-Season Work Days 2/19 and 2/20

The DLV’s first workdays of 2022 are scheduled for 10AM both Saturday February 19 and Sunday February 20. Yes, we are doing two days in a row. Please come out for both days, one day or even a partial day.  We need volunteers to help clean up the velodrome grounds in preparation for the 2022 season. The primary task will be:

  • Leaf removal
  • Debris cleanup
  • General cleaning
  • etc…

These are a few of the things that need done so that we can take the next steps in opening the velodrome for the full 2022 season.

Come join us if you can, we appreciate your help!!!!
