Please join ABSF for a fun-filled day on the Birkie Trail!
We’ll start the day off with a wide variety of group activities, including options for hiking, biking, trail running, roller-skiing, and doing trail work – all things that revolve around maintaining a fit and healthy outdoor lifestyle! This is a great opportunity to meet and share stories with other like-minded Birkie enthusiasts, get a workout, and have a whole lot of fun on the Birkie Trail. Then late afternoon we will gather at the OO Trailhead for a social hour, including casting any last minute ballots for the Board of Directors election, followed by a great meal, and finally a brief meeting highlighting the past year and sharing what lies ahead for the ABSF – LOTS of exciting improvements coming down the pipe! Everyone is welcome to attend!
