9th Street BMX: Mulch Day 8/28/2018

Image
We had a very successful volunteer day mulching trees at Duncan Park / 9th Street BMX thanks to the Austin Parks Foundation (APF). We moved 36 cubic yards of double grind Texas mulch to the benefit of several Live Oaks and Pecan trees.

Barry Rivera, with APF, coordinated with the UT School of Engineering to register 30 student volunteers to help. Thanks to the APF, Barry and all the UT students who helped us out.

After focusing on the trees, we mulched the area inside the Pump Track (kids area).
This area will be our designated landscaping area in our proposed APF park improvement grant.
The trails/park looks great!
Thanks again for everyone's help.
We look forward to It's My Park Day (IMPD) Fall 2018.


We had 2 trucks loads delivered, thanks Whittlesly Landscape Supply.

Thanks UT engineering students!

9th Street BMX: Pepper Goertz Memorial 6/9/2018

Our good friend and local trail builder Pepper Goertz passed away recently.
He will be greatly missed by the BMX community.

Pepper was dedicated and passionate about BMX trail building. Pepper was a perfectionist with a shovel. He was outspokenly honest and had a great sense of humor.

Pepper raced BMX when he was young, took a decade or so off, then got back into trail riding.
Soon after, Pepper started maintaining and building BMX trails. Pepper paid his dues at 9th Street BMX, Red Box, Walnut Creek Pump Track, and lastly Tejano Trails. His work ethic was inspirational to people. He motivated people to dig through his passion.

There was a great turnout of family, friends, and co-workers at his memorial.
During the memorial, his ashes were spread on Right Slacker Line and ridden into blue groove by his friends. I can't think of a better send off for such a dedicated digger.

9th Street BMX would like to thank all the friends and family who helped with the celebration of Pepper'…

9th Street BMX: It's MY Park Day IMPD 3-3-2018 review

Image
We had a great turn out, diverse crew. We mulched trees, planted native plants from our Austin Parks Foundation mini grant of $250. We picked up litter, removed soil stacked on trees, and cleaned up our old cactus bed. Thanks to APF and everyone who helped. Much love for Turner Collie at www.violetcrownlandscapes.com for the landscaping logistics. www.9thstreetbmx.org
