I don't see anything posted over at the DSBC forums about a Fall Newbie ride for this year. They usually have it in October, don't they?
They are having some problems with the location of staging. Tom T has also moved to kamploops. They have also reconfigured the DS BC as a non profit. I don't know if this has anything to do with anything.
Issues with staging? Didn't they just build the staging area at Tamihi a handle of years ago? Can't see why for profit or not would make a diff, either. Do they have a thread about this on their site? I tried searching but came up bupkiss.
There are noise complaints from across the river. DSBC was owned by Tom T. I know there is still a bunch of guys that are quite involved.
