Hey Hoghead... I emailed the about 6 weeks ago and they replied saying they were working on it, and they would let me know.

I never heard back from them. Emailed them again about a week ago and haven't heard anything.

Just tried calling them and left a message.

I sure hope they have the ride. Let me know if you hear something. I'll do the same.......IHF

A little detective work shows that the phone # in the AMA listing is listed on the 4funtrailriders website, same promoters as in previous years.

UPDATE - The guy putting the ride on called me.
He said they weren't sure if they were going to do the ride again this year.
Seems him and his event partner had a falling out.
He said he was burned out on the ride, had put it together for the past 15 years.
Wasn't inlcined to put it together again this year.
But a few local riding buddies begged him and offered to help.
So he agreed to this ride but didn't know about any more in the future.

Said the website and contact/ride info should be updated in a couple of days.

Is this the LAST Renfro ? ? ?

So far it looks like this event will take place in 2012 on May 5-6. I hope so it is a good way to start the Dual Sport season.

I believe you are correct, I have heard the same thing from the KOA campground.

What I found strange is the KOA knows the date (listed on usdualsport.com) but when contacting the club I couldn't get an answer on the date. I made reservations for a cabin based on the dates the KOA has down, just hope it happens now.
I understand that different clubs have run this event over the years?
This will be my first time at this event, I'll be coming a long distance so I hope it's worth it.

Trust me I agree with you I don't know why it is like that. We do this ride every year, and every year I have to call the KOA to ask them when the event is going to take place. Mabey this year when I'm there I will ask one of the head people if they will just shoot me a call or email that way I can post it on my page, and we all will know if the ride is going to take place.
