Thanks Marc, I'm looking forward to the next event! :)

I have a thread going asking for some input on the scavenger hunt app from last year as well.

http://www.backroads.bike/board/index.php/topic,346.0.html

I've removed all the stuff that I could remember folks said they couldn't get to, and moved a few markers; and I'm looking for new things to add in more of a region around Council Grove, rather than extending so far south.

The Cottage Inn has asked me if they can get an idea of how many plan on getting a room for the event. Th e prices for the room are from $65-150, so far we should get a 10% discount, but it could go up depending on the number of rooms we use. Please let me know if you plan on getting a room so I can let them know and see how much of a discount we can get.
Thanks Marc

The Round Up is coming soon! It would really help if we could get some kind of head count.

CAMPING INFO

The lake is closed due to the flooding, except I just called to speak with them and found that the Kanza View area is open for primitive tent camping & day use only.

This is a first-come-first-serve area with no reservations.

We'll meet for breakfast at the Saddlerock Cafe at 8AM, ride to follow breakfast!

Marc will have a scenic ride if you don't feel like trying your hand at the scavenger hunt.

Same thing for me. Error page
https://actionbound.com/bound/FlintHillsRoundup

Is there any other camping in the area that is not closed. Five sites does not seem like a lot to count on one being open on a weekend.

I'm still finishing up on the waypoints, so it's closed off at the moment; sorry. I'll post here when it's live!

I just spoke with a Park Ranger at Council Grove. Canning Cove is expected to open on 7/1 for GROUP SITES ONLY. If the Group Site is not reserved, then camping sites are available first-come-first-serve.

Kanza park shows that it’s $10 per night to camp. Just Incase anyone is looking into it.

GPS? is that short for "Get pointed South"? Gotta Pee Soon? 

I don't own or really even know how to use one to be honest, but I can find the North Star at mid day in a Kansas prairie which proved to be valuable at last years event. (Uhmm no Dane....> is west :))

I plan on attending and would be happy to join any group. I know most of the area pretty well.

I am planning on staying overnight, likely Saturday, if anyone is interested in splitting a room since camping looks to be at a minimal.
I had a blast last year with our small band of 3. Was fun to get lost together and find our way home.
