1. POW WOW UPDATE – THE COUNTING COUP AND VISION QUEST ARE SOLD OUT

Many people are requesting to be put on a waiting list for the Vision Quest and Counting Coup. We usually have around 5-7 openings prior to the event due to injuries or family emergencies and our waiting list is well beyond those numbers.

If you’d like to participate in either one of the events your best bet is if the event are postponed and people have to drop out due to other commitments. If that occurs we’ll put people who want to sell their spots in contact with those willing to purchase them; as a reminder, there are no refunds beginning two weeks before the events (2/18) or if the events are rescheduled. If you are injured prior to the event you can sell your spot to a person on the waiting list.

If you were unable to participate in the events because they sold out, here’s a bit of advice:

The Vision Quest and Counting Coup sell out two weeks earlier every year. This year the Vision Quest sold out on January 1st and the Counting Coup sold out a week later – so when we open registration for the 2007 Vision Quest and Counting Coup this November 1st we expect it to sell out sometime in mid-December.

If you want to participate in next year’s 2007 Vision Quest or Counting Coup we suggest you register when we open up registration on November 1st.

Participation in all our 2006 events, including the Toad Festival and the Flying B Series of Events, will be limited to 250-290 participants. If you’re interested in any of our remaining 2006 Events we suggest you sign up as soon as registration opens for them in February.

Remaining 2006 Events:

Spring Mountain Bike XC Classic – April 22nd – Flying B Ranch

JAX Toad Festival – May 13th – Cleveland National Forest

24-Hours of Orange County – June 3rd – Flying B Ranch

Switchback Cyclery 6-Hours of Orange County – Oct 21st – Flying B Ranch

Fall Cross Country Event – Nov. 18th – Flying B Ranch

Volunteer Event – December 2nd (Free event for our volunteers)

We also plan on having a Super D event in the Fall.

2. THE EPIC THAT WASN’T – BY BOB “HOWLING AT THE MOON” MCCARTER

Here is a story written by Club member Bob McCarter on an epic ride he “almost” did that resulted in his club name “Howling at the Moon.”

3. THE FIRST BRAVES RIDE OF 2006

We will be having our first Young Braves ride for Jr. Riders on Saturday, January 28th. We will be riding a loop at El Moro starting at 10:00 a.m meeting at the main parking lot next to park headquarters.

The ride has some steep climbs so parents are encouraged to bring tow ropes if your child has difficulty climbing. Parents must attend the ride.
