Previously known as Hells Canyon/Wallowa Valley Gathering. The name change is so this gathering will no longer be confused with the Hells Canyon Rally in Baker City drawing the shiny bike set. We'll keep the dirty bikes up in Enterprise, OR and going forward refer to this gathering as Wallowa Valley Adventure Jamboree. 8th Annual Wallowa Valley Adventure Jamboree June 19-22, 2014 Log House RV Park and Campground 66258 Lewiston Hwy (Hwy 3) Enterprise, Oregon 97828 1-877-426-4027 http://loghouservpark.com/ 　What's Happening: ADV riders are great at entertaining themselves so things are left to happen as they happen and that's part of the fun. Any organizing happening is always up for change. Rides: Self-guided rides with suggestions available. Remember this is ADV and as such things are VERY loosely organized which is part of the fun. Check the white board in the group area for rides or post on the white board that you are looking for someone to ride with. There are a few rides going out for the newer riders that want a leader. 　 This ride is set up: Thurs. June 19, 2014 8:00 AM Leave from camp Ride to Asotin, WA via Rattlesnake Grade to meet with others and return via dirt. The ride will be led by Sorebutt with MtnSeekers assistance. 10:00 AM Leave from the gas station in Asotin, WA (the station is on 129 and the only one there). The dirt route will depend on the weather. If its dry it will go to Troy for lunch and on to Enterprise. If the weather is wet the ride will Joseph Creek/Buckhorn overlook. 　 There will probably be another one or two more rides set up so check back before June 19<SUP>th</SUP>. 　 Meals: Please mark the poll for which meals you will be wanting. The poll will only let you mark it once so if you are bringing a non-ADVer with you just PM me (Ladybug0048) with the additional information. The meals can be paid for when you pay for your camping. If you are not camping just stop in the office at the Log House RV park and make your meal arrangements. 　 We need the meals paid for beforehand so we know how many meals to order. Please pay for your meals by Thurs. if at all possible. The poll will give us an idea of what to plan for but we need a confirmed number before each meal. If you will be arriving after Thurs. and want to have the catered meals please PM me and we can work it out. 　 Coffee: We have a new huge coffee pot and will have hot coffee every morning for everyone. Bring your coffee mug so we dont have to use disposables. Name Tags: I'll have nametags available again so you can let people know who you are. Your user name and real name would be good. If you just want to use one or the other that's good too. If you don't want to wear a nametag that's fine too, we'll just call you "hey you". White Board: By popular demand and because I try to make everyone happy there will be a white board available to write ride invitations, etc. on. It will be hung either on the fence outside of the coffee/eating area or inside that area somehow. Is that vague or what? :d SPOT Trackers: If you carry a SPOT and want someone at the gathering to have your link in case you don't return to camp please PM it to me. Put SPOT in the subject line. Tent camping: No reservations needed, just state your IN, show up, and pay at the office when you get there. I believe it will be $12 per night again. RV camping: Please call the Log House and make a reservation and for rates. 1-877-426-4027 Group Photo: Our tradition has been to get a group photo each year which is always fun. The last few years Loud Al has done an excellent job of herding the wild cats and getting the shot. Sat 8:30 PM Group photo cat herding and photo by allanleahyphoto.com (LoudAl) Schedule: as always this is ADV and all schedules are subject to change Poker Run Tues. thru Sat. We will be having a "poker run". I dont know what else to call it and if someone has a name for it please suggest it. The way this will work is there are 5 containers with numbered index cards hidden out on the popular routes. You find the container and take one card. The number on the card wont mean anything to you, its just a number. The card will have a point value assigned to it but only I will have that information. The point values are different for each box too. Ill post where each box is hidden along with the GPS coordinates on Monday June 16, 2014. You can go collect your cards any time after that and until Sat. at 4:00 PM final time to turn them in. You dont have to hit all the checkpoints although that does increase your chances to win. If you pick the right card you could win with just one. High score wins, there will be a prize however I dont know yet what it is. So you can plan ahead there are containers at Buckhorn, Hells Canyon ViewPoint, Troy, Rattlesnake Grade and on the way to Dug Bar. I will have printed directions at camp as well. The containers arent hidden as part of a challenge they are only hidden so we dont have to have manned checkpoints. This is being done as a trial and if it goes well Ill get more creative with this for future events. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Thurs.
