2017 Flag2GC Bike Run 8/4 - 8/6
« on: February 06, 2017, 09:53:01 PM »
AZXC is now mentioned on the the Flag2GC website! - http://flag2gc.com/thank-you-sponsors/

This years beer sponsor will be Deschutes Brewery, not Fat Tire.

This has been taken care of... ***Volunteers are needed who can arrive early Friday morning to help mark the trail! Let us know if you can be there that early!!!*** ***However, the event team is asking for some help on Sunday to help break down camp. In previous years, we all just kind of did our own thing and left. The really want us to be a bigger part of the event team/family and this is another opportunity to help out and get to know the people behind the scenes. When breaking down the End Camp there is always tons of leftover breakfast and snacks which everyone is welcome to, especially if you help out. Let me know if you want to sign up and I can get your names on the volunteer list.***

In lieu of the club committing to helping Randy Miller with his fundraising commitment we would still like to raise money to donate to the Toys for Tots so we have added a link on the forum, and I will post it in other pertinent areas. If between now and the deadline, we raise funds that can help him meet and or exceed his commitment that is required by the event we will update the status.

Last year, funds raised from this event made Christmas happen for over 9700 children! If you can donate, please do so, we ask that you make a donation of $10 to $25 but any amount is appreciated. The donation button link on the forum is located just under the Supporting Member button which is in the left corner area forum. Here is the direct link, let me know if anyone has issues with this link or any of the links I posted.

Help Raise us raise money for #Flag2GC Toys for Tots!
Click to Donate!


When:  Aug 4th - Aug 6th
Where:   Flagstaff / Grand Canyon
What:  61 mile mountain bike ride from Flagstaff to the Grand Canyon
Charity: This ride raises money for the Marine League Charities (aka Toys for Tots, Wounded Marines, etc).
Our Role: We provide on-course support for the riders.  If they break down and/or can't continue, we will shuttle them to the next SAG (Stop And Group) stop.

We typically get up to Flag on Friday afternoon / evening and camp at "Start Camp". !!! Start Camp for us will be somewhere different than the riders, location posted below. !!!

On Saturday, we are up early, before the riders start which is 7am, and drive out to our assigned spots on the trail. We are on parked on the trail for a good portion of the day (bring your own lunch, water, snacks, shade). On Saturday, late afternoon, we make it to the finish line just outside of the Grand Canyon (aka "End Camp"). At End Camp, the Marines cook a big fajita dinner, and Fat Tire donates the beer. After dinner, we have a big bonfire, and goldfish (the crackers) massacre! On Sunday morning, the Marines cook up a big breakfast, and then we break camp to head for home.

This is a great event, and one that I try to make every year.  We can always use more trucks on the trail, but let's try to keep it Nissans only (i.e. don't post this on a non-Nissan board). That being said, if you have a buddy with another make of high clearance or 4wd vehicle, they would be welcome to join us.

Here is a link to the Flagstaff2GC event website:  http://flag2gc.com/

Let's make this an even greater year for Nissans at this event!

Start Camp location for us will be here, unless the event changes maps. -> https://goo.gl/maps/8mmSxYRA8aS2 , it is near last years 1st checkpoint. Here are the coordinates - (35.394806, -111.755306). It is not far from the 180. The actual camp site might be just before the pin on the map, more like in the trees, and just before the cattle gate.

Try to get to our Start Camp as early as possible on Friday, we will be handing out maps and sharing pertinent info. We will need to be ready to roll pretty early as the riders start riding at 7am and they are much much closer to the checkpoints, which gives us less lag time to get there. We all need to be at designated checkpoints before the riders get there. And for you noobs, there are riders that can beat us to checkpoints.

We usually need a minimum of 10 rigs to cover 10 checkpoints. Once we arrive, and we have an ACTUAL number, we can assign checkpoints with buddies if possible. There will be a few checkpoints this year that will have HAM operators so if we have to we can buddy up with them.

Otherwise, we're there to ensure the safety of the riders so we'll need to cover the checkpoints. If you know anyone who has a high clearance vehicle or 4wd invite the to come along with you.

We really need to pump this up folks, coming soon more information related to the future of this event.

Some news on this one, Fat Tire is not a beer sponsor for this year, it will be Deschutes Brewery. I like their beer too. :)

Also, if anyone would like them, I have gpx data from last years trail. It will be the same this year. Just reminder, this event is not going to be called Fat Tire, they are sticking with the Flag2GC name. Not that it isn't a major consequence but likely due to changes in beer sponsors.

This coming year, Deschutes will be supplying our Rider Support group, aka Marshall's Militia with our own bottle beer. They aren't currently putting their stuff in cans, so hopefully we can all be responsible for our mess. No word on what it will be, since they will likely be adding seasonal brews that time of year.

That was asked, and they said no due to licensing or some other legal restriction.

It's my son's 1st birthday weekend, and the weekend before I'm moving my mom from NC to AZ, so I'll be doing a LOT of driving!  I would really like to go, and maybe next year I'll be a rider in the event!
