3 Weeks to the BASH!

It's BASH time! The registrations are rolling in and it's time to get you guys PUMPED for PARTY! We have about 3 weeks to go and have 94 folks registered. Those final 56 spots will fill up real quick. We are closing registration on September 8 (two weeks) because that's the date the chicken orders go in to Gonder's Grubb House. So you have only two weeks to register to be guaranteed your chicken. Swag is in our hands and ready for the swag table for Saturday evening's swag drawing (you are automatically entered for the drawing when you register). And many of you will be pleased to hear AccouCo is BACK on Friday night. These were the two acoustic guys that ROCKED. Check them out here. Saturday evening's entertainment is Blacktooth Grin.

The other BIG change is Sunday morning -- no King and Queen of Rock's Ridge. Instead, we're having the "IRONCLIMBER" competition. Unhuh-- the fastest person to the top of the GATE at Ironmine/Wolf Pond road wins. And what do you win? A nice set of bike nuts. Hey… if you have balls enough to conquer that climb at a break-neck speed, you deserve the balls! Pink for the girl and blue for the boy.
Here's a quick run-down of the weekend's festivities:

Thursday - 5:00 - Gate Opens to Camp Muckleratz
Friday - all day - informal rides (maps provided)
Friday - 6:00 pm. The great Chile' cook-off and micro-brew exchange
Friday - 6:00ish (?) - AccuCo - Acoustic Duo (excellent)

Saturday - 9:30 am - Organized group rides (maps provided if you prefer to go on your own)
Saturday - 4:00 - Taste testing begins - The Beverage Wagon will make its return

Saturday - 7:00 p.m - Swag Drawing

No swap table this year. You are welcome to set up a table at your camp and sell your wares. Link worth checking out (maybe stop and grab something on the way??)

Trailwork Underway

The trail gods are hard at work and you may notice some brush cutting going on. Thank Steve Miller when you see him and I heard through the grapevine Zach Adams is planning to get weed wacking happy. Both men are prepping the trails for the Rattling Weekend coming up next weekend. Beyond the closeness of brush, the trails are in incredible shape -- dry, dry, dry. The woods could use some rain just like everywhere else. Still a couple logs here and there, but hey, why dumb down the trails? They are good jumping practice. So be aware, next weekend is the Rattling Weekend with a 25K trail run on Saturday, August 21 and a 25 or 50 mile mountain bike race on Sunday, August 22.
