When: October 13-15, 2017
Where: The Tamarack Lodge @ Bear Valley and surrounding campsites!
Our 2017 Oktoberfest will be held at the Tamarack Lodge and surrounding campsites near Bear Valley. We’ve had the event here before; the location is perfect for both good off-roading and gathering together to cook. If you are planning to come, then please make sure to book your room soon before it fills up. You can also bring an RV or even camp per the directions on the Tamarack page. There are also campgrounds located near by that can be used and some of the group are planning to take advantage of these. The link above will take you to the Tamarack Lodge web page where you can check out the lodge and make a reservation. You can also directly get a reservation here – reserve a room.
Friday - October 13th
· We’ll hit some trails, current plan is to run Deer Valley since it should be fully open.
Saturday – October 14th
· We’ll hit some different trails, Slick Rock is sounding like a strong contender.
· Pot Luck Cook Out which is likely to take place at one of the campsites, we'll figure this out based on attendance.
Sunday – October 15th

· Possible trails for those that want more and have time
Now that the September Safety Clinic is behind us, it's time for a Newbie Run at Hollister Hills SVRA! All skill levels are welcome but as with the clinic, you must bring a 4WD with low range.
You can find Hollister Hills SVRA here on Google Maps
The group will be meeting at the Big Tree by the bathrooms/camping area above the Old Obstacle Course (the one with the Stair Steps and Frame Twister) at 9:30 AM. Arrive early and be ready to go!
Hello from Retirementland!
Well, we're rapidly approaching the time to prepare for the September Clinic (September 16th). Rick and I will be doing a pre-run of the trails on Saturday September 2nd. Unfortunately, that is the labor day weekend and I would guess that many of you will have other plans. I will be coming down on Friday and camping in the area above the old O course and any others interested are welcome.
We will meet under the big tree near the bathrooms and will leave at 0930 hrs. (Is the big tree still there? I heard that it fell.) We should be done checking the trails around noon and then we can go "play" in the park.
Please let me know who can make it.
We will use CB channel 4 and HAM 146.430 MHz. I will have my SWR meter if anyone needs to tune the CB antenna.
Reminder: the Clinic sign up email will be coming out shortly.
Dennis and Rick
