IMBCS Trail GNOME Awards

Announcing the IMBCS Unsung Hero Gnome Award!

I’m a trained professional singer. I’m used to singing a tune. Now it is time for me to sing a loud boisterous song for those that are out there getting the trails ready for IMBCS to race on for our events. If you know of somebody you would like to suggest, please submit your choice to me via email on who you think in your local area is an Unsung Hero Trail Gnome.

Do you have a Randy Aldridge, a Brian Pottorff, a Brian Sheesley, an Adam Brooks, etc… a major trail GNOME in your area that you would like to nominate? Nominations will be accepted and awards from IMBCS announced and presented at the end of the season. It doesn’t matter if the Gnome is a member of LAMBA, CITA, CVAST, FORC, ICORR or not a member of any local trail organization. Send me your nominations and a brief explanation of why you think they have earned their HERO status.

As an example, Randy Aldridge rolled up to my front door to drop off a piece of equipment this evening in the dark around 8 PM after he had just spent his entire post-work Friday evening blowing leaves off of the trail at Summerset State Park.


To help prepare it for Saturday’s race so all the racer types could enjoy clear, obstruction free singletrack. These are the type of folks that all racers in the IMBCS need to slap on the back, thank, and recognize for their hard work and efforts. IMBCS is stepping up to recognize these folks. Send me¬†your nominations.
