    WNC FR/DH Riders: Fall group rides/weekend?

    Everyone knows that some really prime riding weather is just around the corner. Could do a weekend at wilsons type thing or camp at peewee's or something like that. Would be fun to get a bunch of like-minded riders together someplace that isn't a lift-served resort.

    Last season someone suggested a six-pack downhill race, we could go that way with it too.

    Six pack downhills...

    If its going to be in the same vein as the Harrisonburg series, then it should be set up for all people at all levels to enjoy. A Pee-Wees only course is a slap in the face to everything that made the six packs great.

    Definitely wouldn't be a pee-wee's downhill race, I think if we do the 6-pack that we'd want to be up in the mountains. While it would be cool, I don't know that I've heard of a downhill race that included a bunch of stunts, I was just mentioning peewee's because I live in the valley between hawksnest and grandfather, and rarely get down to peewee's during the hot summer. I'd like to do a separate trip just camping some weekend there and hitting stunts.

    I'd gladly host the party, near my house I'd pick sections of sugar or something in wilsons for the race. Whattya think? The point here is definitely fun and meeting other riders, not reaching the apex of DH competition (like I could even do that if I tried).

    Either way, I htink we shouldn't limit ourselves. We could do the race as the kickoff to a riding weekend, or we could do multiple weekends. I can't think of any way I'd rather finish out the season than a bunch of gatherings, some DH, some natural trail, some stunts...
