SoCal Annual Big Bear Event !!! Which weekend?

Hey gang,

it's that time again! It's time to start planning the Big Bear event.

I want to get some input on what weekend would be better for everyone.

The first 2 weekends in May have seem to be pretty good, but it does get cold at night.

We usually choose May to avoid the summer vacation issues, graduation, and family stuff.....

So, I propose either of the first 2 weekends in May. The event will be on a Sat and Sun. Wheeling and BBQ on Sat, trail work on Sun. Some folks get up there early and might do a Fri night run.

If you think there is a better weekend, post up, but be realistic. We need to also consider other possible events that go on up there - Corvette convention, enduro-bike races, other clubs' events, etc...

This thread will only be open a few short days to get a feel and then we are off.

I will start another thread once the date is determine so we can get volunteers to help plan, cook, lead, etc...

Thanks!

The earlier the better, it keeps riff-raff off the mountain.

Re: SoCal Annual Big Bear Event !!! Which weekend?

I have thought about no poll, but I want to hear what folks would like.

The majority will win out.

Like every year, not everyone will be happy or able to make it.

Re: SoCal Annual Big Bear Event !!! Which weekend?

FYI: 3rd weekend in May is Jeep Jamboree which usually means there's folks prerunning and "stacking" trails the previous weekend (7/8) which means we'll have to unstack whole bunch of stuff to have fun.
