It is a joint run with Nissan folks from CAlifornia, NeVada, and AriZona (CANVAZ).  For the last 3 years it has been held on a weekend in October.  The first year was in AZ, the second was in CA, and last year was in NV.  The idea is that it will continue to cycle every three years, so this year's event should be held in AZ.

What Ted said...



Awesome...thanks Avi for picking up the ball.





A couple things we learned from hosting CANVAZ in Big Bear in 2012 -

-keep it simple - trying to get sponsors the first year was time consuming.  In '12, we skipped this and it saved a lot of headaches and we focused on the trails.



-camping everyone in one spot - when we let people arrange their own lodging/camping etc., this also freed a lot of organizational headaches.  And, we had more couples, as camping at Schnebly road in 19* weather was...fun.  Having lodging options close by in Big Bear was cool, because some of the first timers who didn't necessarily want to camp still made the trip.  

This is also cool if you have folks driving longer distances to attend the event.  It's up to you as the host, but trying to secure/promote camping for a group in one area that fluctuates in size, and can literally change at the last minute - again, pass the Excedrin/Advil/Aleve/craft beers.  



-research and schedule the meet times/meet spots in advance.  Estimating/communicating how long the day on the trail will be is also very helpful.



SCCX is looking forward to attending and supporting CANVAZ 4 and AZXC's efforts this year, as well as hosting again in 2015. 

We look forward to helping continue the tradition of fun wheeling that was kicked off in Arizona in 2011.

Please feel free to hit me up with a PM if you have any questions.

Lol, great to hear.  The place I am thinking of has lots of room for camping, and average temps top out in the 80s and lower in the 60s.  The biggest problem is that I have only run the trails once.  Hopefully one of the Tucson guys will step up and do some trail guiding.

Looking at my schedule I was hoping to go for the 4th or the 18th of October.  How long does CANVAZ normally go, do we get started on thursday or friday?

I have only attended CANVAZ I, so I don't know what happened the last two years.  For CANVAZ I, we traveled on Friday, and setup camp on Friday afternoon/evening.  The trail runs were on Saturday, and a few of us did an optional run on Sunday (after breaking camp).

"Usually" the third weekend of the month...but since you're hosting, set it and they will come.  Marcin had run a poll over on thenewx one year for the dates...so maybe one of those here?  Depends on how much exposure/outside participation you want???

Personally, I like simple...but hey, it's your show... ;D

Yes, what Ted said. 

Friday has traditionally been a travel/set-up day (again, feel free to break from here if necessary), most trails on Saturday, and then maybe an early morning/afternoon trail on Sunday.

Campfire/get together's at cabins/campsites took place on Friday and Saturday nights when CANVAZ was here in Cali in Big Bear. 

Setting trail times/routes/comms/leaders on the forums (SCCX) beforehand simplified some of the daily logistics for us in 2012.

Tucson looks great, scanned through the thread link...cool shots of the waterfall.  :)

I had considered putting up a vote for the date.  My biggest concern is my limited knowledge of the Tucson trails.  I have run some of the trails before and had a great time, but would not feel comfortable leading them.  For that reason I am trying to work out dates that ensure the Tucson locals I need to trail lead are available.  I am hoping to get some feedback from them as to what trails to run and where to camp as well.  Trying to keep this simple and easy for those who want to attend and those who are willing to help run.  To any of the Tucson locals that have been keeping an eye on this thread, if I haven't contacted you and you would be interested in trail leading or tail gunning, please pm me.
