Just a heads up to those planning on attending GoreFest this weekend.
Please stay off the Railroad tracks! This is private property and we do not want anyone to get hurt. The trains will not be slowed down this year. Be very careful! If you are caught on the tracks you may get a trespassing ticket and your actions may jeopardize future Gore races. This event is being permitted by the BLM and not everyone (i.e. the railroad) is very excited or supportive.
So everyone needs to stay off the tracks! If your along the river your O.K.
Also note that parking will be very limited. If your parking at Pumphouse you need to have a valid Day Use Pass ($3.00 per vehicle/day) and no vehicles will be allowed to park at launch #1. The best bet is to park in the gravel pit across from Pumphouse on the Trough road then take the shuttle bus to Pumphouse.
For those camping, the campground will fill up quickly. Event camping will be allowed at and around launch #3 for $5.00 per tent.
Everyone needs to thank Mark Joffe for all his hard work on keeping Gore alive.
If you need any additional info, feel free to give me a call.
Have a great time and be safe.
Please respect your public lands.
