24 Hours in the Old Pueblo – Sierra Nevada Beer Garden

SDMB has an exciting opportunity at the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo this year, running from Friday, February 13 through Sunday, February 15. We will be running the Sierra Nevada Beer Garden in 24 Hour Town!

This will raise significant funds for trail development in Tucson, but we need your volunteer help. The beer garden will be open on Friday from 2:00 PM – 8:00 PM, on Saturday from 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM, and on Sunday from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Shifts are only 2 hours, and are guaranteed to be a good time. All proceeds go directly to support upcoming trail projects in the Tucson area, including new singletrack in Tucson Mountain Park and the 100-Acre Wood Bike Park.

As a bonus for anyone who volunteers, folks who come out for a 2-hour shift will get a free SDMB pint glass, and anyone who comes out for 2 or more 2-hour shifts will get a pint glass and a pair of SDMB socks. Pretty cool, huh?

To sign up for shifts, go to the Doodle link below. Make sure to let your friends and family members who will be at the race know, and forward the link to anyone you think might like to volunteer. Email Trailsteward@sdmb.org with any questions.

Even if you can’t volunteer, come by, have a pint, and drink beer for trails! All proceeds go to SDMB to help make your trails better.
