The event will begin on Friday. Manx Club will be hosting a Three Taco Dinner in the Banquet Room
Registration check in will be at the club trailer. Get checked in and signed up for a group for Saturday.

Please park your trucks, trailers and/or cars behind the hotel. We need the parking lot up by the gas station for buggy parking and Saturday morning activities.

The groups are planned as followed:
Group # 1 will be the extreme run. It is a Rubicon style trail. This will be one of the toughest trails the club has tried. I would not recommend this to the folks who drove their buggy to Topaz. This will test everything in your buggy including your belly pan. Skid plate is a must. Spare tire, tools, tow strap a must. This group will not be in the show and shine. They will need to leave at 730 following a brief safety and drivers meeting with me in the parking lot. This group will need to establish a leader and sweep. I will supply the directions and instructions.

Group #2 and #3 will be going thru Desert Creek, Risue Canyon, Leviathan Mine. Nice easy day with a lot of mining roads and water crossings. Pack a lunch and drinks.

Group #4 will be a street run up to Lake Tahoe/ Fallen Leaf Lake for lunch. Pack a lunch and coolers.

Saturday evening will be dinner on your own. I would recommend JT Basque in Gardnerville for some
authentic Nevada Basque food or stay at the lodge and enjoy the restaurants they offer.

There is a Chevron gas station in front of the hotel with a general store. They have just about everything you would need but if you really need to go to Walmart, there is one about 15 minutes north on 395.
ATT cell phone service is bad. It was last time we were there and ATT did not put in a new tower for us. Internet is slow. Just plan on these things. We can't do anything about it.

If you have any questions, email me at Buggybob64@gmail.com.
