    Guys, Tom just clued me in to a great fact: there is a nice disc golf course right near Auburn! Check it out: http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=715

    We have to play a round on one of the days of CMW.

      Need a ride

      Hey!
      Is there someone who can pick me up on their way? I live in Burlingame and will have 2 unis (20" Trial and 24" Muni).
      Please write me a PM if you have space, thanks!


      And another thing: If one of you guys has an extra pad it would be great if I could use it as mine had to stay in Germany.

        Schedule change is official

        That's right, I've moved us out of Auburn so we don't get crowded by the Tevis Cup race. We will do Auburn on Friday. Saturday will be Salmon Falls/South Fork trails, and Sunday will be Stevens Trail. If travelers are concerned about missing the Auburn riding, it might be possible to do the fun events in the morning, stop for lunch and then do the main ride in the afternoon?

        I've updated the information on the website, and added an Accommodations and Travel page, which will hopefully answer some of your questions. More details are in the works. If you don't like the idea of sleeping on the floor, I've added info about the downtown Sacramento Hostel, which is in a cool old mansion and has a range of very affordable choices!

        Please send in your registrations, so I can plan for the numbers of people and otherwise be prepared so we don't have to do paperwork during the actual weekend.

        I'm working on a possible big group dinner and movie event on Saturday, at STEP (also in Carmichael). We have a classroom where everyone will actually fit, with a big screen to show anything you can display on a computer. Then we can have food brought in. What kind of food?

          Okay folks, I've heard a lot of people tell me they're coming, but I only have four registrations so far. They are all from different states/provinces though! That's Maryland, Texas, California and British Columbia.

          If more registrations don't come in pretty soon, I will have to cancel the T-shirts. That's okay with me; the first MUni Weekend didn't have T-shirts either. How about bike jerseys? Too expensive.

          Please register, or at least give me a head's up that you intend to attend. But you should pre-register, so you don't have to wait around for me to do a bunch of paperwork before we can start riding each morning...

            I have been lurking silently with great interest....

            I happen to be visiting family in Nevada City, CA for a while, and am hopeful that I'll still be here for the MUNI weekend. I should be certain enough to register in a couple weeks...

            I look forward to riding with y'all!
            Cheers- Gregg

              I knew I forgot something...

              Have one little question, though:
              Is it possible to pay in cash when I arrived and just send you the form attached to an e-mail?

              I assume the t-shirts are in male-size...

                    You will still need to sign a paper copy of the waiver, or scan your signed one to email it. Please be sure to bring exact change.

                    As am I, though it's still up in the air about whether there will be any. Still only four registrations so far...

                      Looking for my USA # - you'd think I would've written down something like that...

                        For people who are already USA members (or aren't sure if they're current), contact Hans Mills (this page). He can tell you when you expire(d) so you know if you need to re-up. If you joined for U Games last year, you're going to need to re-up.

                          UPDATES:
                          We're going to cancel the T-shirts. Due to a lack of orders, it's not enough to go through the process. We will make do without--just like we did at the first MUni Weekend in 1996! We had T-shirts from '97 onward though.

                          YOU MUST REGISTER TO PARTICIPATE!
                          It's an insurance thing. For us to be protected, everyone must be a USA member. Unless you have joined or renewed since October 7, 2010, you need to join or renew. Not sure? Contact the USA's Membership Coordinator, Hans Mills. Click on the "Membership" link.

                          I have just posted the Schedule page. Start times are a balance between accommodating people with varying travel plans, and having somewhat reasonable ride finish times. Still got to post detail pages for each ride day, and the directions.

                          If you are flying in, you can use this thread to connect with other flyers for ride sharing. Right now I have arrival and departure times for only one rider, but he's probably interested.

                          Note for air travelers:
                          October 6, the day most of you will fly in, is opening day for the new Terminal B at the Sacramento International Airport (depending on your airline). I hope you like it, and that everything works on their first day!

                            Hey John, I didn't see this thread until now, is there a deadline for signing up? I think I can go but have to get a few things sorted first.

                            Thanks

                              It would be great to have you, Eric! Only 5 or 6 people are actually registered so far, so I think you're in pretty good shape. For people outside the US, I'm allowing payment by PayPal, though you'll still need to sign a waiver. You can either scan it and send it that way, or just send your registration data electronically and sign a waiver copy when you get here.

                              C'mon, the rest of you, lets get this registration stuff out of the way before the day-of, pleeeze!

                                Noooo!!!

                                I'm just not registered yet because I don't know how to get there since Brian who wanted to give me a ride can't go...

                                So again is there somebody who can give me a ride? I can take BART up to Oakland.

                                I really want to get there and the only other way to go is with a Greyhound bus but I think they don't accept the 24" Muni...

                                Edit: Just thought of another possibility: If there's somebody who has a spare Muni I can come with the bus..
