Rally Point Notes:
June Jam Season 3 is an early season meetup for fellowship with mostly mild to moderate runs.
We're gathering a little early this year so we may not have the high mountain tracks available. If your primary interest is running the likes of Tincup & Hancock Passes or Mt. Antero, be sure to check out this event later in the year which is dedicated to just that: Miner's Loop.
The anticipated vehicle count will require us to break into 2-3 groups for the trail runs. The tentative plan (group size permitting) is to camp and do a majority of the trail runs in the FourMile Travel Mgmt Area. Most of the trails in this area are pretty easy, but still scenic and fun. There is a particular run I like to take noobs on to expose them to rocks and shelf roads. If someone does want to go for something harder, we would endeavor to accommodate you. Trail info below.
We're also considering some program ideas. For example, there has been some interest expressed in Bushcraft. More info to follow as things congeal. If there is any relevant topic that you'd like to learn more about or if you have some experience you'd like to share, please let us know in the forum thread or message me directly. Also, how about some sort of a camp cookoff? Let's hear your ideas!
The official event time is listed for Friday, but some, including myself, will probably arrive on Thursday to secure a main camp area. The tentative plan is to use the same campsite as years past. This is subject to change. Please follow the associated forum thread for updates.
