A Soda Creek resident is the proud new owner of a brand new Kona Operator mountain bike after volunteering her time to help build a new trail on the Westsyde Trail Network in Williams Lake this summer.
The Williams Lake Cycling Club, the Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium, Red Shred’s and a trail-building company, First Journey Consulting, held a raffle draw last Wednesday as an incentive to volunteers who helped construct the new Snakes and Ladders Regional Signature Trail in the lakecity.
Jacinda Mack’s name was pulled from a hat as the lucky winner.
Volunteers’ names were entered into the draw based on how many days they volunteered. Three days of volunteer work amounted to one raffle ticket; six days resulted in two. Eight names entered in the draw — some multiple times.
Thomas Schoen, owner of First Journey Consulting, said there were many other volunteers who helped over the summer to complete the new trail. He said around 30 people volunteered their time.
The trail, weather permitting, is slated to have its grand opening later this month.
