TOYS FOR TOTS Official Xcursion Thread Aug 6th-8th
« on: July 13, 2010, 12:10:00 PM »
Need an updated roll call.  Spouses too.  THere will help need this year at end camp if anyone is interested.  I'll be there helping with the cooking...

___________________________

Added by Conundrum: Stone, let me know if anything needs changed or you should be able to change this post as needed.

DIRECTIONS FOR FIRST TIMERS

Fill up your GAS TANK in Flagstaff

Start Camp

HWY 180 North (NW) out of Flagstaff. It's about 7 miles to the turn off on your left (FR 222).

It is just after a long straight portion of road as you pass Fort Valley and the last of the houses and just past a street that is Bader on the left and Roundtree on the right.

If you pass FR 151 on your right you went to far.

You should also see a bright yellow sign with red letters that say Toys For Tots etc. at FR 222. Or you can look on a map for HWY 180 and 222. There is a sign post there that will have glow sticks on it from dusk to whenever.

So it's like a mile a so down FR 222 and there is camp.

If you get there after sundown PLEASE BE QUIET. The party is the next night.

If you want to go to end camp and come back EARLY in the morning, PLEASE CHECK IN WITH ME at start camp.
Those directions are

Hwy 180 to Hwy 64, North (right) on 64 for aboput 22.5 miles.

Right on FR 302 There is a "scenic view" sign right before the turnoff.

Fr 302 about 9 miles to a fork with 301A

Right on 301A 1-1.5 miles to camp.

All folks going to end camp must be at SAG 1 BY 7 a.m.

YOU WILL NEED

Dinner Friday night.

Saturday Breakfast and lunch, water etc.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE remember that you are there solely to assist riders. DO NOT DRIVE your truck when there are riders present, pull over and wait AND DON'T TAILGATE riders.

I would venture that they would like SOBER PEOPLE driving riders, because if you are driving riders it probably means it's raining and muddy.

You are part of a great event that RAISES MONEY for TOYS for TOTS (Fat Tire is just a sponsor)and I and the Dirty Girls thank you for YOUR SUPPORT!!

Added by Conundrum: It has been noted that there will be a strict dog on leash policy this year so if you don't have to bring the pooch, they might be happier at home.

Added by Conundrum:
This year's event will be held Friday Aug 6th through Sunday the 8th.

Toys for Tot's with the generous sponsorship of Fat Tire Beer is holding it's annual fundraser with a 65 butt-pounding mile crosscountry bike ride.

AZXC as well as Swanky participate in support of this event by being staged along the course to help any rider who may need it.

This year could be the one to prove muddy, so be prepared for passengers and their bikes, etc. Be prepared for rain, etc.

It'll be a ton of fun so hope everyone can make it. Please plan to buy plenty of raffle tickets, or help with the group donation that we'll be gathering. Last year we were able to collect about $1,000 bucks to give. Every little bit counts. We do have the Paypal account up and running at payments@azxterraclub.com, but there is of course a fee for the service.

There will be additional details of where we'll be located as the event nears. Please Post in a new Thread your plans for caravaning up so you don't have to travel alone. I'll be going up Friday to arrive hopefully before dark. I'll post more of my plans in a separate thread when I've nailed them down and anyone is welcome to accompany us if you don't mind arriving with a Jeep. Had to toss that in there Scott. :) lol

That's all for now, thanks!

me being around food and beer is probably not a good idea. LOL

Ah hell...you don't ever drink beer @ Fat Tire   ;)  You're always the 1st one up Sunday morning bright-eyed and bushy tailed.

I'm in for the 2 (got a friend who's going to sit on the trail with me and drink beer all day). Can I get a DUI out here?

Will also probably go up Friday prevening and stay through Sunday morning ('cause I'm going to partake in the festivities Saturday night). Plan on camping. Can't wait.

It's gonna be a real last minute decision for me I'm afraid.  Will depend how the 6 month pregnant wife is feelin that weekend as to if I will be able to go up with my daughter or not at all.  Wifey doesn't wanna be subjected to torture by seeing all that beer and not being able to drink it :)

Yeah, the same location as last year worked out pretty good.  Just before the Start Camp, on the south side of the road.  So far the plan is to arrive in Flagstaff in time for lunch downtown, then to mosey up to camp shortly after.  So it's likely we'll be first on the scene again this year.

Re: TOYS FOR TOTS Official Xcursion Thread Aug 6th-8th NO DOGS
« Reply #13 on: July 21, 2010, 03:11:24 PM »
The organizers who appreciate all of our help so very much always have a request or two.

This year they made a point to remind us of the dog rule that all dogs MUST BE LEASHED AT ALL TIMES.    I love to take my dogs camping and wheeling you all know this, but I never take them to this.  I'm busy all day and it isn't fair to my dogs.  Also since not all of our dogs get along I am going to ask that you not bring your dogs if possible.

If you bring them expect to have them on a leash at all times, please don't make me be an ass about your dog while we serve in a charity capacity for a great organization.

Thanks and I hope all my fellow dog lovers understand.
