We'll need a local pre run closer to the event to answer that question but........

Here is a pix from BQF 3 it was wet that year but the last two years have been dry? Never any mud, always a hard bottom. The last two were minus the water. So dry that you've got to be doing it all wrong if you got wet .

Work is keeping me busy but if an organizer needs some help, I can probably work something out for a pre-ride.

I'll pre-ride if anyone else wants to go out there. I usually ride on Saturday.

If the 14-16 weekend is chosen, I'll only be able to be out for Saturday afternoon to Sunday morning.

Me too. Can we get a weekend locked in? I'm cool with Saturday evening campfire nonsense.

Locked in. I can call over to get site reserved, just need help for someone to get over there for paper work nonsense so I can't get anytime off between now and then.

Not going to be able to get away during the week. Not sure I can swing the dates either. Might have to pull up Saturday at best.
