Only 2 days left to get a free Fest t-shirt for registering b4 June 10th :o
Can you register after the 10th or even when you get there?...SURE, but you won't get the free t-shirt :whistle:

Regardless if you register early, make sure you come Sat. at the very least...http://www.qcforc.org/content.php?160-The-Shenanigans

There is something for everyone. Whether you are a weekend warrior, a beginner, or hardcore; there are events and others you might like to hang with.

Seriously, this is a DO NOT MISS event! This is the last year the Festival will be this close to home for awhile.
There is always someplace in the world dry enough for kick'n up a little dirt.

no body armor needed.

that berm rides so smooth and so fast, before you know it you're doing mach 5 with your hair on fire and you've zipped through 2 more ravines and spanned 2 more bridges. by the time you reach the party deck, you will begin to realize what just happened.

can't wait to ride with you guys!
