Sweet. I'll make this one.

Sounds like this is in April. We only keep stickies for a week or two so we'll have to unstick and put this link somewhere on top at some point.

The Venue

Many people were asking where the festival will be held. It will be held on the property which encompasses the Post Office dirt jumps, the Epicenter Pump Track and the land in between - which will have a 1/2 mile short track and a 100'x200' expo/vendor area.

Preliminary Short Track Course

Not the final course. Still a work in progress....

We will probably need some volunteers to help build the course. PM me if you want to volunteer and I can put you in touch with the course builders.
