At Wrench's urging, I have started a new thread for the spodefest to eliminate any confusion. The fest will be a gathering at Monster Mountain (http://www.monstermountain.com) from April 27 - 29). The owner has given us a price break ($10/day instead of $15/day). Both the Monster track and the vintage track will be open, as will the trails which are normally closed. Camping is allowed (primitive). There is a hose setup for washing bikes and the owner doesn't care (and won't charge us) if we hook up a pressure washer (if someone brings one). Porta potties are a plenty. Five minutes to downtown Tallassee which has lots of fast food and the like. Nearby bike shops can be found from the MM link above.

OK, who's going to be there?

I'm going to be there and if you remind me I will bring my pressure washer. It takes the same gas as my bike :)

Probably show up Friday night and stay through late Sunday.

I may be bringing a couple of my riding buddies as well. Not sure if we will make it down on Friday, probably early Saturday.

They want to see the location of my infamous BAMA BUBBA sighting! :p

If all possible, I will be there along with my riding buddy :). I won't know for sure until it gets closer. If I can't find a babysitter for my son (4 yrs) I'll just have to bring him with me. He would love it anyway. Hope to make it and finally meet some fellow DRN'S.

thebird - Some of the HS course will be open as will other trails. There is one section that the owner leases for HSs that may or may not be open depending on how many DNRers show up.

I doubt that we will be able to jump from the trails to the track in race mode, simply because that requires you to cross the parking area. Since there will be others using the track on the weekend (they will be having open practice), we won't be able to do whatever we want.

Come on you Suthern Spodes, lets hear from you. Or are you afraid of us Bamans :p

Biscuit-I'm planning on camping the entire time. Since I don't have a portable shower, I'd suggest that you camp upwind of me :o

Lemming,

I was wondering why, in your other thread, you said, "This is officially a non-event as far as I'm concerned."

I'm thinking of making the drive down from Maryland again and want to attend an event. Can you explain you meant?

Thanks,

Curtis (maybe SpodeDog "Slick" will make it again)

Curtis,

A non-event, because I am not a sanctioning body, nor do I provide insurance. It just so happens that a bunch of people who read DRN may show up to ride a Monster Mountain that weekend. I'm sure that some spontaneous events will break out over the weekend.

Come on down, the more the better. I will be a MM from Friday morning until close on Sunday.

I will be there along with Porkchop. Needless to say after last year sleeping in the van and freezing my #$@ off I too will be pulling a Richie Rich. Ah, the thought of a hot shower and a some what comfortable bed after a long day of riding.

Kawboy, where are you on the list? If you need a ride, I am working on getting a new trailer, sorry to hear about your problems with your trailer this weekend. I should have the trailer within the next couple of weeks. Porkchop said that he would drive, upon the purchase of said trailer. Therefore, you have no excuesses for missing this year.

BTW, any one know of a decent hotel/motel that is close by? Checking out mapquest doesn't produce a lot of options, although they do list a casino that is 18 miles away, yea right, Bilouxi is right around the corner. Hmm, is the craps table open? :D :D

I'm camping out. Getting the suspension done is taking away any possibility of Richie Rich style for me.

I will probably sleep under the stars in the back of my truck. I will bring a tent just in case :)

The JawJa boys will be there in force! I've recruited a couple more guys who can't wait to get there. Sort of reminiscent of the camp fire scene in the movie "Blazing Saddles". Ah, to know them is to know enough to stay up wind. Let the fun begin. By the way, what are the odds Piglet stays on the front of Ivan's Pig all weekend? Exactly how long will it take Gomer to dump his CR and get poked before he can recover? What would happen if the Artic Rodent awoke one morning to find the zipper stitched closed on his tent? Stay tuned, I'm sure there's more to come. Porkchop
