I am in... Any other FOOLS?  I am only doing the 50 though.  Got the OK from the wife so now just waiting till mid-July's paycheck to pay the $205 entry fee to sign up.  It includes dinner Friday, all meals Saturday and I think even breakfaust on Sunday.  Plus all the beer you want.  Bunk bed style sleeping rooms.  Bring ear plugs.

The route map is out. 

Bob, the camp start/end is right below that Army Ranger School.  Is that where you were stationed?  Anyways, check out the route map.  We doing Bull Mountain!!!!  Click on the map to see the full version.   More details on Eddie Odea's web site from link posted above by Shawn. 

If you going and want to ride up there together post back here.  If don't want to save on gas but still going, then see you there, or not.

We are collecting a ton a shwag and have plans to distribute it to more than just the top riders.  Still working things out with the sponsors, but I'll have details soon.  Going to visit the local wineries tomorrow to score some really good stuff!

Let me know if folks have any questions,

Eddie O

I'm going to be there along with some buddies from Miami. Hope to see you all there, I've never been to this area but I couldn't turn down a Fat Tire Festival with micro breweries  ;D.  I signed up for the 50 mile race but hurt my back last month so I'm just gonna do some of the easy fun rides.
