Dawgs, O.K. I talked to Gary Johnson tonight. The Organization would like our club to chair the fullsize run each year for the Sierra Trek. That means picking the trail to be run and organizing that run each year. The trail must be in the general vicinity of the base camp. The trail picked already for this year is the trail they use for the "Run-a-Muck". I will be pre-running this trail on the 3rd of August. They had just one person in charge of putting the fullsize run together for the last decade or so. This guy is burned out. That's why they have asked us to take it over. As a club we have enough people to not put such a burden on just one person. This year all we need to do is lead this run and the following years we will take over all involved for it. Gary asked if we could do this. I told him I would lead this years run and our club will discuss the takeover for future years. It would be nice if there were at least two more rigs to help with this year. The event is the 8th through the 11th of August. The fullsize run is going to be on the 10th which is Saturday. There is a cost for the volunteers of $60. The fee covers Brunch and Supper for Thursday - Saturday and Breakfast on Sunday. I'm not sure of the fee for participants. Oh Saturday night is T-Bone steaks and baked potatoe with all the trimmings. If there is two other rigs to help me then we will come back to the club and report how things went. Also what exactly would be expected of the club if we choose to take this on. Did I leave anything out? /forums/images/icons/cool.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif David /forums/images/icons/cool.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif The information and links below is only for the trail itself and not the base camp. Here is a link to a map of the Bear Valley/Cottonwood trail. http://www.cal4wheel.com/d4w/muck/ram_trail_map1x1.jpg Map to trail. http://www.cal4wheel.com/d4w/community/adopt/bear_valley1x1.jpg Located at Bear Valley Campground, the trail is located approximately 18 miles north of Truckee, CA. Following highway 89 north, follow the R.A.M. signs leading you into camp.
