    Cruel...

    and unusual punishment making this a sticky a full 8 months in advance of the event. Now I have to see this everytime I log in until the main event. It's not even warm outside...I suppose I could start sampling all of the local microbrewed goodness to give them all a fair shake before I decide what to bring for the swimming pool.

    Yeah, 8 months is a "bit" long for a sticky. remind me in August and we can re-stick it.

    Hello... pluese accept my appology in advance for being a wiseass... but I really loved that logo you have for Gnomefest 3... and Im going to to do a t-shirt for myself with it on the chest... just for myself and no other... but that illustration had a very small flaw in my humble opinion... which I corrected in PS in a moment of hubris... so I hope you will not be mad at me... but it was a little bit wrong in some sense and it was so easy to fix... as I started this rant... accept my appology if anyone feel I steeped on some toes... but here it is in its correctomundo form...

    I think the two-finger thing was purposeful, as in the "peace" sign. (or "victory" sign, depending on where you live...)

    Personally, I think it should be the middle finger.

    I'll get it up soon.

    And I'll post an announcement for Spring Barbie Camp soon, too.

    Ba dum bum.

    P.S. 2006 Barbie Camps:
    Spring BC = March 31 - April 2
    Fall BC = October 27 - 29

    looking at the gnomefest site, it looks like a SS joint. (Wow, captain obvious, this is the SS forum!) Would I be scorned if I were to bring my geary along too?

    I also noticed that you have a "family" rate on the registration page, but it doesn't look like there are many "kid freindly" activities.

    Looks like a blast!

    Geared folks are more than welcome........kids.....the family rate is more for the couple that bikes together (or not). The water park option is the best bet if you wanna bring kids that are old enough to learn new cuss words, dirty jokes or imitate drunken antics and public nudity. Look at the bottom of the camping page on the GF website for info about the special room rate at the waterpark.

    Gnome-Fest Laid Back Schedule

    Friday Evening
    - folks start to arrive and begin erecting Gnome City
    - Pre-Registered Riders Goody Bag Pick-Up
    - The ceremonial tapping of the Gnometoberfest Keg
    - Take a whack at the Cliff Bar Pinata
    - After Dark – at around 9 pm – mount up for a gnite-ride
    - Socialize
    Saturday Morning
    - Freeform fun rides – go and explore
    - After mugs full of Stout Alterra Coffee Gnome-Brew – at around 10 am – there will be a Ladies (title 9) ride.
    - Noonish – Gnomellerros will gather, back at camp, to fuel up for the Enduro.
    - 1-ish – Enduro – Rider Meeting followed shortly by the start.
    - Post Enduro – prepare for the feast and beer swap…..kick back…..swill beer…..
    Saturday Evening
    - Dusk – Feast and Enduro Awards Ceremony
    - Dank - Chili and Homebrew Contest
    - Dark – Dwarfcycle Figure Eight Death Race
    - Really Dark – another nite ride? And the Dwarfcycle Awards
    Sunday Morning
    - More Free-form Fun Rides
    - Noonish - Clean-up Tear Down and Vamoose



    Tips for the Gnome-Fest Enduro
    - Embrace the unusual…costumes, drag queens, elvis impersonators, tube tops, luchaderos masks……etc.
    - Be serious about the competition or just come along for the ride…..the enduro format offers something for everyone.
    - Bring a trailmap and feel free to cut out and then back in, at any time during the Enduro.
    - Have fun! We will have special recognition (prizes) for various absurd catatgories chosen at random by our panel of Gnome Elders…….so let down your hair and ride toppless – gnomes luv da mammaries.
    - This is an all abilities event, however, the beginners should feel comfortable with the use of a trailmap, so if the event goes beyond their comfort level, they can simply ride back to camp (unassisted)


    Tips for Camping at Gnome-Fest or any Parking Lot
    - Bring Garbage Bags – pack out everything you pack in – we mean everything – dog poop, used condoms, punctured blow up dolls, wigs, welsh cowboys…..EVERYTHING
    - Bring Lots of Drinking Water – There is no water available at the festival grounds
    - Remember your Camp Chair
    - Bring Warm Clothes and a Warm Cozy Sleeping Nest (gnite-time temps will drop into the 40’s)
    - Bring utensils to serve your chili or the dish you are sharing with the group for Saturday Night’s Feast
    - Remember Firewood for the big communal fire
    - Remember to shop your local brewery for some special beer to add to the baby pool Saturday after the Enduro – OR – brew up a batch of your finest barley pop and enter it in our home-brew contest.

    Things to Bring (I’m being redundant for those of us that are stoned or stupid)
    Drinking Water
    Firewood (out of state firewood is forbidden due to a possilbe invasive beetle infestation)
    Garbage Bags
    Beer for the Beer-swap
    A dish to share for the Potluck Feast
    Chili – For the Chili contest (optional)
    Home Brew – See contest (also optional)
    Bike
    Helmet
    Fairy Dust
    Completely Wack Costumage

    Things not to bring
    Firearms
    Anti-Social Dogs
    Fireworks
    Welsh Clowns
    Perfume
    STD’s
    Choad Monkeys
    Bug infested (out of state) firewood

    The best airport in terms of flight options and prices is likely MSP. You've got a solid drive from there but it's a scenic route. Madison is probably the closest full service airport but options are limited, expensive and often require at least one stopover.

    Seriously...I was just riding along when a squad of special forces gnomes knock me off the bike and start probing me for rodents.........Neil (that's what I name all my gerbils) was the picture of health until those gnomes got their hairy knuckles on him.

    How about Green Bay Wisconsin?........Is there an airport there?

    Of course we have an airport in GB... Remember we also a an NFL team! Nobody here will let you forget that! Even of they go 0 and 12!

    By car it takes about an hour and 10 min to Wausau from GB! Hope that helps!

    So I see it is too late to register online. Does this mean registration is closed?

    Closest Airport

    CWA, in Mosinee/Wausau is no more than 10-15 miles from Ninemile. Not exactly a huge airport, but flights are usually pretty reasonable. Northwest, United and Midwest Express fly in and out.

    GnomeFest weekend, Denver to CWA, $275 or so round trip.

    It's like I've got gnomes burrowing into my skin. I hope there is a cure for this and I don't have to wait much more than 2.5 weeks or so.

    Gnome-Fest Enduro Favorite Embroiled in Doping Controversy

    9-7-06

    Two time winner of the GF Enduro and favored to win again in 2006 - Scoutdog aka old school - has tested positive for abnormal levels of estrogen and the performance enhacing substance ENO. Enduro officials became suspicious when they noticed Scoutdog had developed D Cup breasts at last weeks WEMS 12 hour race. Scoutdog will not be able to defend his two year winning streak.....however he will act as an official at the event, due to his really sweet rack. The picture below clearly shows Scoutdog's new jumblies.

    I have been doing a lot of extra sets on the bench, to prepare for Gnome Fest but I am Afraid that I will not be able to catch Scoutdog, with those chemically enhanced D's. I will however be gunning for enduro gold, as I have been training since last years defeat. Gnome Fest is all I have trained for, I am ready to start tapering for peak performance. I have also been extensively training my hand eye coordination, seeking out hidden gnome cards worth a sweet 10 points. I can now spot a hidden gnome from miles away. Be afraid Gnomes, it is exactly 2 weeks until we meet again.

    To the Gnome-Mobile, Raven!

    I leave for gnomeland today......with a bus full of shwag and two huge dogs...two bikes....and a satchel full of stretchy pants. All communications for the next week will have to be conducted telepathically, for I'll be deep, deep, undercover living among the gnome population of Central Wisconny. If things get sketchy and you don't know where to turn....just ask yourself 'what would budha do?'

    See you in a week,

    Yeah, we're in

    I will be there with the world's greatest soigneur and the new El Mariachi* in tow. My goal is to wear off some of the new without embarrassing myself too badly in public.


    * El Mariachi is spanish for The Mariachi.

    2007 ??

    Has a Gnome Fest 2007 date been set?

    We're planning a MORC group ride at Levis around that time, and don't want to compete for the same weekend.
