    Puff pending, I too hope to be at MBO for 2010. Might not be ready to guide on July 16 if I race the Puff again, but I will damn sure be ready to guide come August. As sParty would say, "lickin' forhead to it".

    Cheers,
    BFE

    What are the perks as a guide?
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Free entry, bragging rights, a pint glass, industry deals from MBO sponsors, and a free night in Chester! Oh yeah, and alot of emails.

    I'd love to help out, but how does one get in contact with the MBO guys? I scoured the MBO web site but did not see any contact info.

    As you know, guides are VERY important to MBO. Being a guide is quite lucrative since you don't have to pay to attend. As you can imagine, over the years many people have scammed MBO into letting them be guides only to not take on any responsibilities as guides. MBO has since contracted, so to say, the job of volunteer coordinator to somebody outside of the MBO organizers and now the guides are hand picked carefully so that 100% of the guides are there to be guides and not freeloaders. No offense.

    If guides are needed, you won't find out thru MBO. Chances are a coordinator will see this/your inquiry and contact you. If they don't....well...what can I say?

    Aside from free, free, free. Being a guide at MBO feels like you are giving back a little. Oregon is a gifted state and when it comes to epic singletrack Oakridge Oregon rivals anyone in the nation. MBO is a grass routes organization, which is why the event is so fun to be a part of, both as a customer and a volunteer. Without volunteers, MBO would not exist at its current capacity, actually it may not exist at all. MBO is good people......it takes being a part of MBO to really understand what I mean.

    Ask my wife: the day I got an email inviting me to be a guide at Mountain Bike Oregon might as well have been the day I learned I would be a father (just don't repeat that to my wife).

    And I'll make sure all the guides get plenty of JustFruit bars. : )

    Seriously, OHM, if you've never been to MBO you really need to get there.

    ahhh, the singletrack sublimity that is MBO. I'll be at both again in '10!






    ps - OHM, find the crazy pink party during the showers, but before the flowers, and on the other side of the hill. It can be done; it will be fun.

    JustFruit GorgeBars are the best perk at MBO (except the beer)!

    When they offer up "Just Steak bars" and "Just Baked Potato bars" I'll consider.

    IF you can't reg please call me
