    Just keep an eye on this link:

    They have the festival every Fall, can't imagine it won't happen again this year.

    As far as events planned....riding, beer, riding, eating, riding, beer, riding.

    Great place to camp out and spend a long weekend. I helped run registration on Friday night last year after the 6-pack downhill.....might try and do it again this year.

    Sure thing.

    Loooooong standing tradition with the folks in "the burg". Show up on a Friday afternoon, ante up (6-pack of beer or "other") climb up a steep trail to the top of a mountain, line up and race back down in time trial fashion (30 seconds intervals off the line).

    So actually I think the ante part of it is a tradition that has past....just show up with a good attitude, ready for some fun and race. The locals will typically pick a different trail to race down each Friday. It goes something like this....show up at a meeting spot around 2 or 3 pm, last person allowed up the trail at like 4pm....race starts at like 5pm.

    Show up at enough of these, or do enough trail work and you will earn an invite to the "6-pack invitational" in the late Fall. There is a LOT of prestige in winning the invitational.

    Not sure when the 6-packs start, but I am thinking a little later in the Summer. I can't wait, since I have a new long-travel double-squishy bike....just need a full-face helmet and some goggles.

    Again, keep an eye on the Shenandoah mountain bike club website, or talk to Thomas at SMBC for details.....hella good time.

    Thanks, Pat. BTW, is that KidRock in the avatar? He seemed like a pretty decent guy on the two occaisions that I met him and I realy dig his early stuff. Got an autographed '98 tour hirt stashed away in the closet upstairs. Hard to wear a shirt that reads "White Trash On Dope Tour 1998" in public, ya know?

    Shufflers: We could fine tune an event like this for our next get together, although I would recommend the 6 pack be consumed rather than antied up. That would provide much more entertainment from a spectator standpoint, I believe.

    Negative, that would be the late great Ronnie Van Zant.

    However, Kid Rock, well rocks....I had Devil Without a Cause in the cd player this morning on the way to work.

    HOLY CRAP davis you aren't serious about the kid rock thing??!?!?!! Even my Yankee A$$ knew that was Ronnie Van Zant from Skynyrd the moment I saw it. Fun fact:
    Ronnie liked to be up on stage bare-foot. Now play some Skynyrd, man!

    Captain, I just looked down and saw the hat, thought "Is that Kid?" and the thought stuck. Hard to see on this damned laptop. Crap, I was even sober at the time..

    No excuses accepted. As a penalty you must drive through Marlinton blasting New Kids on the Block out of your stereo.... sober.
