Granny's Pancake Breakfast - RSVP
Granny is hosting a pancake breakfast and post-race ride on Sunday morning. The breakfast goes from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. and the ride starts at 9:30. Please RSVP so we can know how many folks we'll be flipping flap-jacks and brewing coffee for. E-mail us your RSVP and indicate how many folks you are accounting for.

Kudos to Dirt Rag
A big thank you to Dirt Rag getting the word out on the Big Bear Mountain Fest on their website and in their e-newsletters. We really appreciate the folks at DR putting their shoulder behind this year's event and helping keep the momentum as we look ahead to the return of the 24 Hours of Big Bear in 2011!

We're Psyched for a Great Weekend!
Looking forward to seeing everyone and hanging out, enjoying the music, the racing scene, the kids race and other activities.

Thanks again to Mark Schooley for all the work that he and his staff and volunteers are pouring into this year's activities. Don't miss the big fun. It's gonna be a blast!

Happy Trails,
-Laird & all the fine folks at Granny Gear Productions
