    Hey, NMTA'ers! We just added a special registration category for NMTA to participate in the Sipapu Shindig. Since you will already be registering for the NMTA trials event, we created a category that isn't "doubling up" on charges for insurance/fees/etc.

    We are excited to be involved in this unique event and the opportunity it offers for everyone.

    Discounted $30 event registration which will get them a T-shirt, decal, dinner/raffle on Saturday night, and the opportunity to ride/lead any dual sport rides that they want to participate in on Friday!

    Update as of 4/12:
    We have added an option on the registration page to pay for additional Saturday night meal tickets for family members & friends who are not riding: $13 per person for a BBQ burger/brats dinner!

    • [FONT=&quot]2 great days of dual-sport motorcycle riding in the beautiful Carson National Forest near Taos, New Mexico-(Friday-Saturday)[/FONT]
    · [FONT=&quot]Friday and Saturday will feature a variety of dual sport, single-track, and road riding options through the mountains of Northern New Mexico. All riding off of ski resort property is strictly "no fee", and at the event participant's discretion. Maps of suggested routes will be provided and we anticipate plenty of people who would be willing to let others follow them as they explore the beautiful and varied scenery around Sipapu, Taos, Angel Fire and surrounding areas.[/FONT]
    · [FONT=&quot]All road riding requires a legal, plated bike. Trails system riding requires a valid NM OHV sticker or sticker from a reciprical state. The NMTA event is being held on private land (the ski resort) so no stickers are required.[/FONT]

    So much goodness to say about this event. I have a friend who lives in Dallas and has not missed his summer retreat in Sip for many years. Dual sport trials event on Saturday? :ear Trials scoring/observing, free spectators, wonder if they will operate the lift? Cajun Boil. Moto and bicycle trials demonstrations? Swag? Rio Pueblo fly fishing at the ski area. Incredible slab route around to Taos through Angel Fire, Red River, Eagles Nest? Killer single track over the mountains into Taos. River side camping, lodge, river side bar, restaurant, ice, beer, adult beverages, world class chef at the restaurant, cool temperatures at night, ADV friends, fund raiser, escape internet and cable. Hmmm. No brainer event and I wonder about this thing filling up quickly.

    Ubber dog friendly. Also top 10 in the world Frisbee Disc Golf course (s). Harding Pegmatite mine, Taos or Santa Fe art, barter for jewelery with the natives, incredible NM food, canyons and mountains.

    Then of course there is the old remote control - lazy boy weekend.

    Subscribed and IN!

    Where does one register for the non-trials, singletrack part of the event?

    what are the costs?

    Looks like room/tent spots are charged separately thru the lodge?

    Thanks.

    Might be in but I have a friend from NH coming in that timeframe and i havent heard his final schedule yet.

    Hello sceep,

    The link has now been posted in the first post of this thread (toward the bottom) but here it is again: http://nmohva.wildapricot.org/Default.aspx?pageId=1542797&eventId=649009&EventViewMode=EventDetails

    The registration fee does not cover your accomodations, you are on your own for that. Sipapu has a wide range of choices including plentiful camping at a very reasonable price.

    Hope to see you there!

    Basic tent camping (grassy area, no picnic tables or fire pits) is FREE to all paid event attendees, or you can upgrade to an improved tent campsite (15 of these available) for a fee of $12 per night------
