Camping: Overnight trip optional. Camping spot will be at Juniper Springs group campground. If you'd like to camp please bring cash to evenly divide the $135 per night camping fee Jerry's paid. LIMIT 10 VEHICLES camping. You MUST liaise with Jerry to coordinate camping at [email protected]

Meeting Place: Big Bear Discovery Center Back Parking Lot Saturday. This may change. We'll send out an email if we choose a spot closer to the first trail once we determine the order of trails being run for Saturday. If not a Trail Leader, you may opt out of additional trails.

Meeting Time: 9:00am Sat

Departure Time: 9:30am Sat

Description: Patriots Day Burgers, Brats, Meats Cook Off and Potluck for those who are camping on Saturday night after the trail at the Juniper Springs campsite. Bring your cooking gear and your “A-Game” for a potluck of shared masterpieces. See registered attendees list at the bottom of this page so you can plan enough food to share with the group. You're not feeding everyone, just plan on sampling. You can arrive Friday afternoon and depart Sunday if you pay your portion for each night and if you've arranged with Jerry in advance as the campsite can only accommodate 10 vehicles. Email Jerry at [email protected] . The portion for each night may be different as people may not camp both nights.

RSVP: Required by Sun 4th. 

Truck Limit: Increased to 21 Truck Limit. This is now a pre-run trip for Rover Rendezvous and less of a normal trail run you may be used to. We may be running several trails a day, be agile. You can opt out of any additional trails we decide to run.

Radios: FRS 16.0, HAM 147.580

JERRY'S ALREADY BOOKED AND PAID FOR THE JUNIPER SPRINGS CAMPGROUND SO THERE IS NO NEED TO MAKE A RESERVATION OF YOUR OWN. Click here to see Juniper Springs Group Campground.

The group camping spot has a limit of 10 vehicles. To that end, please email [email protected] to tell Jerry if you plan on camping. If there are too many for this site, you will need to make alternate camping arrangements.

Thanks

Adam
