Event News

Although we don't have anything set in stone for a 2020 event, we are in the process of creating a new event, at a new location, for our renowned 50 year event. Please note that our EVENT WILL NOT BE HELD AT THE PREVIOUS HIGHWAY 228 LOCATION as in years past. We realize that the previous Highway 228 location was described by participants as “a flat cow field that is frustrating to maneuver, located off of a busy state highway, with difficult parking and limited 4WD options.” While we did what we could with what we had access to, we want to bring you a better event at a new location! Keep checking back for details as they unfold. Thank you for your loyalty & support! -SFWDA
