Trail Blazer Award – Alf Skrastins

The Trail Blazer Award is given out annually by Alberta Trail Net to a well deserving trail steward. Alf Skrastins, volunteer for the GBCTA, has put in over 1750 hours of volunteer time this year (and many previous years too!) What can you say about a guy who spends more time on trail, either building or recreating, than anyone we know. His passion and expertise on anything trail related makes him a true trail blazer, and the GBCTA organization are fortunate to have him as part of our crew.

Many thanks for your leadership and dedication to the WBC trails as well as many other trails in Alberta and beyond. There are so many who benefit from your work.
