The list isn't finalized yet.  It's always a bit like herding kittens to get all of the "demo gypsy's" lined up.  A few that should be definite (fingers crossed) are Pivot, Ibis & Specialized.  Others are still trickling in and we'll update more as we get closer to the event.

The registration fees seem pretty hefty and I suspect part of it is because you are also buying beer, which leaves non-drinkers subsidizing others' alcohol consumption.  Even the Saturday ride only option includes beer tickets.    Is there a non-alcohol option?

Hi, actually Big Woods is our title sponsor.  They provide the Food and Beer as part of the sponsorship (at no charge to HMBA!).  This is our biggest fund raiser of the year.  Pays for building and maintaining the trails.

Time to get signed up for the Big Woods Brown County Epic!


I rode Weedpatch (our newest trail) for the first time this past weekend.  Was great.  I'd say like Hobbs Hollow "lite."


The Big Woods Brown County Epic is our biggest fundraiser.  Let's get the trail building machine going!

Does Weedpatch have signage at the trail heads yet?  Will it be officially open for the Epic weekend?

There is a temporary sign.  Itís behind the Firetower. A hiking trail goes to the right and Weedpatch is to the left.  Yes open for the Epic!

And will it connect all the way over to Hesitation Point or just to Bobcat by the road?

Right now ends at the road by Bobcat.  Make sure to sign up for the Big Woods Brown County, to help fund future expansion.

That's a great question!  Does Big Woods provide a non-alchohol option for those who buy tickets (Saturday, Full event, ect.), but don't drink beer? 

Thanks

Yes, just make sure to ask if you don't see any.

Two questions:


1.  Will we need a Hoosier national forest permit or is that included in the registration?


2. Anymore updates on confirmed demo manufacturers?


Thank you!
