2. County Board of Supervisors votes to purchase land to maintain access to the Santiago Truck Trail

3. Enduro Stuff Challenge – Nov. 12th – Caspers Wilderness Park

1. VISION QUEST AND COUNTING COUP SOLD OUT

Counting Coup sold out in 14 minutes.

Vision Quest sold out in 38 minutes.

We wish we could accommodate everyone in the event but we are limited by our Forest Service permit.

Do to many issues related to allowing transfers in 2011 all entry fees are non-refundable, non-transferable and non-deferrable. We have to plan well in advance and therefore cannot offer refunds. You may not give or sell your number to another individual. The entry fee for a 2012 event WILL NOT transfer to the 2013 event, no exceptions. This policy stays in effect whether you are injured, have unexpected business, a family emergency, etc. Sorry, there are NO exceptions.

2. COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS VOTES TO PURCHASE LAND TO MAINTAIN ACCESS TO THE SANTIAGO TRUCK TRAIL

Thanks to the majority votes of Supervisors Bill Campbell, Janet Nguyen and Patricia C. Bates (Supervisors Shawn Nelson and John Moorlach voted no) the County will be buying the property of Silverado Vineyards to protect access to the Santiago Truck Trail.

Thanks to all of you who called and emailed the board in support of this purchase and many thanks to the supervisors that voted yes and especially Bill Campbell, a great friend of the trail community!

Please feel free to email these supervisors your thanks.

3. ENDURO STUFF CHALLENGE – NOV. 12TH – CASPERS WILDERNESS PARK

We are pleased to announce the Enduro Stuff Challenge & Mountain Bike Expo at Caspers Wilderness Park in San Juan Capistrano on November 12th, 2011.

Yes that’s right, another race in our OC Parks, the second ever! The first one was so great they (OC Parks) want us back for more.

Not only will we have a great race, but a Mountain Bike Expo with demo bikes, lighting systems and more to check out!

Racers this time will have the opportunity to camp the night before if they wish. We are also working on a possible sponsored night ride (details are coming soon) for Friday the night before.

There will also be a raffle for great prizes including a Kona 2012 Humuhumu! All proceeds from the raffle will go to maintaining the trails at Caspers.

for more details.

New for this race is an open Single Speed class. So one geared people can put it down on this tuff course and see who has the most raw power out there.

4. NO TRAVERSE OR TOAD FESTIVAL EVENTS IN 2012

Due to the time involved in preparing for events we have decided to promote only the Vision Quest and Counting Coup events in 2012. We will not be promoting the Traverse or Toad Festival in 2012. This will allow us to focus on our trail work and advocacy.

Thanks to all of you that supported these events in years past.
