Off-Road Adventure Part III and Pepperoni Roll Contest

Saturday, August 15th WVURMC Offroad Adventure:  

Before winter begins to close in, let's get some Mountaineers and 4x4s together and go take in some of the Colorado high country. We'll plan to visit Kingston Peak and the surrounding trails, in a socially distanced and safe manner. 

All road-legal 4x4s are welcome. You must have functioning 4 wheel drive, front and rear recovery points, and high clearance. A/T or M/T tires highly recommended. If you do not have a suitable vehicle, but would like to join, reach out to me directly and I'll work to find an open seat for you. 

We'll meet in the Wooly Mammoth Park and ride, in the southern section across from the gas station at 8 AM, with a planned departure to the trailhead no later than 8:30 AM. 

 

Please RSVP to rockymountain@wvuchapters.com.


Sunday, August 23rd: 2020 Pepperoni Roll Contest:

With the current pandemic environment, we are excited to offer a new format for the 2020 Pepperoni Roll Contest. We have two options this year that you must RSVP for accordingly based on your preference.

1) An in-person event has been reviewed and approved by the Grateful Gnome. We are well organized to host this event with a flow and set-up that facilitates Colorado regulations for social distancing at the Grateful Gnome.

2) We recognize that some of you still want to stay distanced from public gatherings and that shouldn't inhibit you from participating in one of our flagship events! So, we have the option to RSVP as a virtual competitor. You'll have to simply come down to the Grateful Gnome and pick up your pre-bagged pepperoni rolls and take them with you. 

Both options will have a survey to submit your votes.

Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place with the winner’s name engraved on the championship trophy to be kept on display at the Grateful Gnome
