In 2004 the Warrior’s Society produced a video on the Vision Quest and Counting Coup mountain bike events. It gives a 3D video tour of the course with original music. The video captures the true toughness of the event showing the struggles and triumphs of those participating. For those of you considering one of the few remaining spots this will give you an idea of what to expect on the course.

We have one change for those who sign up for the Vision Quest and Counting Coup events. We will be allowing those signed up to sell their spots if they are injured or for personal reasons for up to one (1) month before the event. There will be a $25.00 transfer fee, which will be used for gift cards to be raffled off at Trabuco Challenge Event. We sell out on these events every year and this will give those who miss signing up an opportunity to participate.

These events are part of the King and Queen of the Mountain Series with the Vision Quest being the pro-class and the Counting Coup being the intermediate class. The series final will be the at Trabuco Challenge event.

3. THE NEXT TRAIL WORK EVENT IS ON SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3RD WORKING ON THE BELL RIDGE TRAIL

WHAT: Brushing the Bell Ridge Trail
WHEN: Saturday, February 3rd.
WHERE: Staging from the Parker Ranch
TIME: 8:00 AM sharp

You: Bring sturdy shoes, gloves, trail snacks, water. A folding chair and a dry shirt for the post-work luncheon.

We’ll be brushing back the vegetation which is encroaching on the trail corridor with two groups working from the top and bottom of the trail.

We are in need of shuttle drivers with vehicles capable of driving to the top of the trail via the Main Divide Road. If you have such vehicle and want to help we could use you.

The Warrior’s Society will provide loppers and saws, along with the gas trimmer(s), if we are able to use them.

RSVP super important for this one.
