Meeker Basecamp Finalized!

Its taken longer than I had hoped to get an update out. Our delay was with coordinating with the city around some proposed construction in the parks that were to be our base camp. The great news is that the town has been great to work with and has really gone to bat in insuring we can provide the best gathering possible - to the point of delaying the construction until after our event.

With the above in mind here are the details:
  • Basecamp will be in Town Park.
  • Camping will be provided on the grass of Town Park and Circle Park at $15/night/tent (honor system so be sure to pay up and thank our hosts for welcoming us into town!)
  • If you camp there will be paid shower options at the Elk Mountain Inn and Blue Spruce Hotels (close by)
  • We'll have a couple of options to get indoors for social time in the event of bad weather
  • There are lots of lodging options in the area if you don't want to camp
  • $25 of your event registration will be returned to you in the form of Meeker Bucks. These are good for gas, food, and other items throughout the entire town and are good up to 90 days after the event.
  • The town is very OHV friendly. If you're bike is not plated you can still ride through town to the trails as long as you have a brake light.

I've attached a PDF with the list of all available lodging in the area. Given the close proximity please help us to fill up the Elk Mountain and Blue Spruce Hotels. Their owners and management have been tremendously helpful in helping RMAR make this event happen in a very short timeframe.

Below I've included pictures of the parks we'll be using for base camp, a map of the town, and a full lodging guide.

If you haven't registered yet please visit the link below and plan to join us for some great trail riding and camaraderie.

I'll just add to Mark's post that Elk Mountain owner (Michelle) is willing to hold the place for our people...so please call and get those reservations IN. For a two Queen bed room it's like $75 a night before tax. They have 22 more rooms I believe it was. It's a short walk to the park (aka base camp). Of course I'm sure those that get rooms will share their showers just bring a towel.

Michelle is the owner and very nice to deal with, just mention RMAR.

Oh they also have a newly built bar on their premises too...I'm just saying for the people that like to drink a little.

reserved a room .
now , to ride there or to trailer ??

lot's of time to get there but only 3 days to get back. About 525 miles per day for 3 days in a row. i haven't done that since the late 80's. don't know if the body can take it.
trailer means smaller bike and more off-road fun.

decisions, decisions, decisions.
