    Recognizing this is an "unofficial" listing, has Mass formally confirmed they will put on the Yee Haw this year?

    Formally? I'd say no..... it's just listed on their website. I guess it depends on the snow pack and how long the subfreezing temps last this year. That's the reason they killed it last year.

    Yes, it's the same as every other event..... the "sanctioned" events, pursues, and points just draw some of the factory riders if their schedules allow it.

    Oh, I like that Snowshoe setup. That means you can do the whole regular 3 race Snowshoe series, but you only have to make two trips up there.

    Don't think its happening. Got reprimanded by the forestry service last year. May be a group ride but definitely not a race.

    eccorp, Yes, I was there last year, and there is a way to make it work, being a "non-race" and making it a "guiding ride" with support, if you understand what I am talking about.

    Anyone heard from ETSU? Thomas or somebody else?

    Beech dates -

    July 19 (as previously mentioned, this will be a Pro GRT race, and combined with the Brews & Views festival)

    August 23

    September 20

    http://www.beechmountainresort.com/media/news/178.html

    Also of important note, the resort also now has their own onsite brewery, so there is much winning to be had in Avery County this summer.

    That is not gonna effect you at all. You are still gonna sit in the parking lot with a bottle of pure bourbon and a mini travel grill.

    But its nice to have a back up plan in case we use an excessive volume of bourbon lighting something on fire.

    That picture is such a glorious summary of the Southeast gravity scene that I almost tear up when I see it.

    These may also add to the distinct, southern flavor

    I would just like to say that my wins in the seniors division have been tainted by the lack of liquor reward. My last prize was a pair of ladies sunglasses. Bring back the hard stuff for when I finally make a comeback.:thumb:
