14B Wednesday, March 18, 2015 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter The Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship 2015 Trailfest fundraiser is what year." Photos by Ann Powers STEWARDSHIP, from page 1A' This year's third annual Trailfest had a Casino Royale theme attracting wannabe 007s and Bond girls from near and far. The black-tie gala featured live and silent auctions, a liberal amount of libations, five-star food and a casino set-up tempting partygoers to test their luck at blackjack, Texas hold 'em, roulette wheels and craps. "This is an important fundraiser for us," said Trail Programs Director Tara Stone. ',It's also :an opportunity to gather and showcase our projects while having some fun." During the event, the stewardship recognized the contributions of various trail partners. The Brewing Lair, in Blairsden, was given the Community Partner Of the Year award. Santa Cruz Bicycles was named Corporate Partner of the Year. "Santa Cruz Bicycles has been the title sponsor of the Downievine Classic for the last 12 years," said Stone. "They have supported the mission of the SBTS since its inception in 2003." Described as a "weekend of racing and partying in the Sierra," the Classic is listed by Outside Magazine as one of the top 10 best bike festivals. Riders pick one bike for two disciplines:'a. 29-mile cross-country race, and a 15-mile downhill with 5,000 feet of vertical drop. Individuals were also " recognized. "Trail advocate extraordinaire" Mark Pecotich was honored as the Volunteer of the Year. And the good-natured festive atmosphere never seems to stop as part of what Williams described earlier as some call "the party of the "a way of living." With that in mind, SBTS is looking for volunteers for the Mount Hough Workday on March 28. Even though the event's title says "work," comped beer is involved. SBTS is providing tools, breakfast and an after-work barbecue. The Brewing Lair is bringing the beer. "We are proud to partner with the Mount Hough Ranger District on this special project," said Stone. "The folks in this district understand the importance of more trails, and specifically multiuse trails." She added that no experience is required, and the weather is supposed to be beautiful that day. Meet at the Oakland Camp swimming hole near Quincy.
