OAUSA SummerFest Interest Poll

#1

Post by Cnynrat » Sun Jul 06, 2008 12:13 pm

We're in the early stages of planning a SummerFest in Big Bear for later this summer. We'd like to get a feeling for the interest level so we can make camping arrangements. This poll will run for 5 days - please take a moment to respond and let us know whether you are interested and whether you have a preference on the date. This poll allows you to vote for either or both weekends, so if you're interested and your schedule works for either date please vote for both options.

OAUSA Big Bear SummerFest

- Friday and Saturday night camping
- Organized runs on Saturday, and maybe Sunday AM based on interest level
- Informal runs Friday afternoon for those that can make it up early
- Saturday night Potluck dinner

Unfortunately, given the short time we have to pull this off we won't be holding a raffle this time around.

We do plan to collect a nominal fee to cover the campsite and other costs of putting on the event. The Board is still discussing what the fee will be, but knowing this is different than for previous Adventure4x4 Fests I wanted to make sure everybody understands that up front.

Hey Scott -

As you know, there are somewhat limited group camping options in Big Bear. I've done a little research and checked availability and have a couple locations in mind. One is Shady Cove group camp, which is near Running Springs. The location isn't great, but it's got three sites each of which can hold 8 vehicles. Apparently there are some "Yellow Post" sites in the vicinity of Shady Cove that we could use for overflow (I know, I'm hoping to avoid the situation from last year, but our options are limited). The other location is Big Pine Flats equestrian camp, which is on 3N16 and will hold 15 vehicles. I need to confirm we're allowed to use it without horses (some of the other equestrian sites specifically state that you can not use them if you don't have horses).

My plan for the moment is to get an idea of the interest level over the next few days and then make a decision based on that.

If you (or anyone else for that matter) has any suggested camping locations you think would work please let me know.

Another thought just crossed my mind... How about camping at Silverwood Lake near Pilot Rock and Cleghorn? There are some nice trails around there and Big Bear isn't too far of a stretch for those wanting to hit a trail over there. Pilot Rock is actually one of the runs they run during Mountainfest each year which is based out of the Snow Summit parking lot.

That was a good suggestion Ollie - I hadn't thought about that area. The sites there accommodate a lot of vehicles, but unfortunately looks like they are all booked on the weekends through August. We should keep these sites in mind for next time though.

Has anyone here ever camped at the Silverwood Lake campground?

How about invading Cactus Flats near Big Bear? I've never stayed there but I've heard that it's a good group camp site as long as you like primitive camping. No reservations required.

Primitive sounds great. No fires allowed there but that will probably be the case everywhere with the high fire danger.
