Sign up for a Trail Day:

To sign up for a trail day, please go to our calendar at www.nsmba.ca/events. The specific details on each trail day (which trail, how to sign up and where to meet etc.) will be detailed there.

To attend a trail day, every participant must have signed a waiver, and completed a quick Health questionnaire (see below).

In order to ensure the health and safety of the community, there will be a few changes to how we run trail days this year. Please review our trail day protocols HERE as well as the information below.

Waivers

Download, electronically sign and send to ryan@nsmba.ca at least 1 day before the start of the trail day. You only need to sign and send in one Waiver for the year. 

Health Questionnaire

Once you have signed up for a trail day, you will be sent an online form to fill out at least one day before the trail day.
 
It is a very short questionnaire meant to ensure the health and safety of all those attending and, unlike the waiver, you will need to fill out a form for each specific trail day you attend.
