Anyone wanting a scanned in copy of the local topo map, let me know. 90% of you guys have never ridden something so unique. It's like Green's Lick took steroids for 5-6 years, then added supplements.

Date - Saturday Nov. 11 .
Time - 9am Rider meeting in Parking Lot. IMMEDIATELY following will be the climb in and orientation run.
10:30am - Approximate start of Orientation run
11:30am - Casual Lunch and BS session in Parking Lot followed by climb back up
1pm - Mass start of the raffle run
Location - Wayehutta ATV Park - Cullowhee, NC behind the campus of Western Carolina University
Park fee - $5.00 to Smoky Mtn ORV Club who maintains the trail system
Raffle Ticket fee - $5.00 (goes into a pot to determine start order at the top)
Format - AM orientation run at the start.(To give riders a tour of the trail) Start time for "mass start" - approximately 1pm
Facilities - a pooper, nothing else. Bring your own food and water.
Weather - usually f-ing cold but you never know
Trail type - Really wide. 3 riders side by side is easily possible Passing is a piece of cake. Imagine Greens Lick extended over a very long period, wider and with jumps, berms and water bars like crazy...I mean tons of water bars. I've still never ridden any other trail like this.
Prizes- The raffle pot will be divided up into 3 most likely - 1st DH bike (single ring only), 1st hucker/trail bike, 1st Hardtail
Estimated time to get down - 20-25 minutes
A granny ring is HIGHLY recommended for the climb. I've pedaled, pushed and crawled it on a DH bike before, but you may want to skip the orientation run unless you shuttle to the top of Moses Creek (which is one f-ing long, long way to drive to do 1 shuttle run down). It is a tough, tough climb but very well worth it. Plan on at least an hour for the climb. Goats can hammer out the climb in 30.
If you only have a hardtail, you will not be undermanned. Full squish is of course best. After having pre-rode it this weekend, a DH bike is going to be no fun without a granny ring but can easily run the DH, but you're gonna take a lot longer to get up top and there is a couple climbs in the Super D portion.
