I was hoping to see if anyone here in Michigan would be willing to set a date/time we might all/some of us DRN people get together on the weekend and have a mini-spodefest in the upper central lower peninsula. WOLVERINE would be awesome......say late may....not Memorial day weekend....got plans....maybe the next weekend. I'm open to ideas. Let me know if you think it might work as a "mini-spodefest" don't want to conflict w/ any AMA or CCC stuff so let me know.

Sounds great, but is sometime in June a viable option? I'm booked thru the fist weekend in June (getting married 5/20, honeymoon in Cancun 5/26, Dave Mathews 6/3:cool: )

I'm keen. Can't make anything in late May though. Second weekend of June would be sweet (9-10th). There are GNCC races on the weekend before and after, so it looks good.

MI, mini-spodefest

The 2nd weekend (looks like 6/8 and 6/9) actually would be better than the first. However, I am not very familiar with the riding areas in the UP. Any suggestions on the trail/area to select would be appreciated if we all decide to get together.

Don't know of any good trails in the UP, but found a good one this weekend. It's the Frederic Trail, about 1/2 hour N. of Grayling. It's tight, fun stuff. BTTS, I checked my DNR trail map ordering sheet and there are quite a few trails in the UP. I'll send out for some in the next couple of days and see what I can find of interest.

I believe the June 9/10 weekend is a CCCM ride near Marquette in the U.P. Any chance of combining the two events. I'm not quite sure what a mini-spodefest would consist of..........actually I'm not quite sure of what a CCCM ride would consist of either since I've been a member for years but have not ridden with the group.
Either way I would like to ride in the UP that weekend.

Jeff,My camp is actually in Merideth which is 18miles south of houghton lake in the LP. The Marquette area would be a excellent place for a SF. The sands plains offers some excellent enduro trails and two tracks. There is also a track and nice sand pit/play area with in rideing distance of the plains. This area is owned by CCI and they allow unlimited use, camping, ETC. The local club (sandstormers) puts on a enduro there.

Flyin' Derhntr, I will not be able to make it that weekend - birthday/family obligations. I told Fred the two of you should meet at the clubgrounds and ride from there. If anyone asks, tell them Maurer said it was OK.
Have a great time!

Hey guys how about holding the Mi. Spodefest at or around the Whiskey Creek area?
That south loop they had there was some of the best trails I have ever been on.

I'am with Jeff. There is alot of other trails in that area.The pool would be a hit with the wife as well. Sorry that a group did not make it to Baldwin Sat. night. We talked to Fred on the rode and it sounded like everyone had a good time.We parked across the road from the kids ride if you saw a gray Z71 with a full light bar on it that was us.We had a good time one bike died 2 miles from the start. I told them not to buy a Honda:D
