LAKE FIRE STATUS & BIG BEAR BASH UPDATE

Happy 4th of July!

With Manx Club members expressing concern about the wildfire and the fate of the off road runs planned for the Big Bear Bash this year, Mike, Lori Ann, and I thought we'd give you an update on the event.

First, let us give you a bit of history on how we stage this event. In January of each year, we file four proposed trail runs of varying degrees of difficulty with the Mountaintop Ranger District in Fawnskin, California. Then, depending on conditions in those areas, they issue a permit allowing us to use some, or all, of those trials the weekend of our event. This year, however, is proving to be much different due to the Lake Fire in the San Bernardino Forest. Sadly, over 31,000 acres have burned thus far in the San Gorgonio Mountain area, which is south of the lake towards the Morongo Valley. Fortunately, the fire is now 80% contained and the perimeter of the fire is no longer growing. It is our fervent hope that by this time next week, the fire will no longer be a threat to the area.

In light of these events, the Forestry staff have been extremely busy, and have not yet answered our emails or returned our phone calls requesting the status of our permit. Therefore, even at this late date, we're not certain how the fire may impact the Big Bear off road runs. While we are optimistic that everything will work out just fine, we are also scrambling to come up with a poker run and several new street runs should the Ranger District decline to issue us a permit.

That's about all we can tell you right now. And, frankly, it may be Friday before we know for sure the status of our permit. While we believe many members attend these events partly for the camaraderie of hanging out with like-minded buggy people, we also realize there is a contingency of hard core dirt enthusiasts. We felt it would be best to disclose exactly what we know thus far, so that no one is surprised to hear of the situation when they arrive next Friday.

Rest assured that should we get further information before the event, we'll be sure to pass it along here and in an email blast.

See you all in Big Bear!!
