March Moto Madness (3M) PNW style

https://scontent-1.11404.fna.fbcdn.n...e5&oe=54F96C92

Gauging overall interest in a 3M this year? Dates are 27-29 March. We are still exploring where the event will be held, but it's coming down to either the Twanoh State Park or Straddleline ORV Park. Time is a factor for sure, but I trust our crew will be able to make this a reality. Ideas we are tossing about, 3 different rides, a Gnarly route, a tamer route for those wanting two up, or just tamer, and a Geocache route to highlight the natural beauty of the region.

We are looking at this event as the first gathering for ADV Riders for the 2015 season focused on riding, friends, and riding :)
If this sounds like something you are interested in, please, give a shout.

All proceeds beyond actual costs will be donated to charitable organizations, we'll have a variety of fund raising items, to include an intro ADV Riding class, silent auctions, and raffle. Vendors, any interest in participating as part of the first Pacific North Wet 3M?

Who's down for getting dirty??

I'm definitely interested, at either location. Never ridden at Twanoh. Keep us posted!

And Twanoh is an excellent oyster beach on top of everything else

I'm definitely interested and there is plenty of riding near Twanoh with Tahuya around the corner.

Talking

Great meeting last night. We will be staging out of Straddeline ORV Park, with our short fuse this is the place with all of the facilities and ease of access for a Challenge Course (could we really have a MMM without a course?). More details to follow, but we have a few ideas to make this a great event and one hell of a way to ring in 2015s rally season. We rode some of the quad trails in Tahuya, this will be for the seasoned foolhardy riders, plenty of challenge, some roots, and short bits of elevation gains :)
I'll share more as the event details become solid.

Formerly known as Thurston County ORV Park, about 15mi West of Olympia on Hwy 8.

And, SOP, I assume you mean the quad trails in Capital Forest, not Tahuya?

Nope, a road trip to some really good stuff, think Tahuya River Trail. The quad stuff at Straddeline when wet is a nasty snotty mix of clay and misery, fun on a dirt bike, not so much on a GS. We'll have enough of that on the challenge course. Other than the stuff in the ORV Park (Straddeline) the trails are closed in Capital Forest for the Winter.

Is this a big bike, little bike or both event?

Plated, a bike you would ride ADV Style, for some this may be a WR250, others it may be a 1200.
