V2V "16" Leg#11 ~ 7.1.15 ~ Craig,CO - Park City,UT


Recommended Posts

I've asked both the Wasatch and Palmer Divide folks if anyone from those chapters wants to be captain, if not I'll volunteer.

 

But to get the wheels rolling, in the meantime, here's a tentative plan:

 

We'll start from Craig from

 

Bear Valley Inn

755 E Victory Way, Craig, CO 81625

(970) 824-8101

 

KSU 8am MST Wednesday 7.1.15

 

I'd like to change up the route a little from the last couple of times, and go through Meeker and Rangely to Vernal for lunch, then follow the 2013 route through Altamont to Park City. 286 mi which is about 22 miles longer than the shortest direct route, but should be much more scenic. In 2013 we did a very similar route but went on a sidetrip that we'll miss this time, so actually a shorter distance than 2013.

 

In Park City we'll be at the Best Western Landmark Inn in Kimball Jct. More info to follow.

Reservations at 800-548-8824 or (435) 649-7300. Address is 6560 North Landmark Drive, Park City, UT. Dinner will be walking distance from the hotel at 7pm. details to follow.

 

I'm still working with the hotel for group info, I'll post soon.

 

Like I said, if anybody from UT or CO wants to be the leg cap just let me know, I'll be happy to step aside and support the locals. I'll be with the group coming over from Craig, and may or may not go on to Ely.

 

I do not intend to make any group plans for the Bear Valley Inn, unless I'm mistaken I think that's for the Leg10 Cap to do, and they may decide to stay at another place (but the Bear Valley Inn has been way cool to the VMC, and has been the traditional stop, so...)

When I did the mileage I missed a short leg, the correct mileage is 310, almost identical to the 2013 route

Craig to Rangely 106 mi (we can also stop in Meeker for a quick bathroom break if needed)

Rangely to Vernal 51 mi (lunch in Vernal)

Vernal to Altamont 54 mi

I need some help getting t-shirts further west. If you have room, please see if you can transport and help sell shirts to the next leg. Shirts are 10 dollars and pins are free again this year. All proceeds will be donated to the IAVA charity. Please leave all collected funds in the Victory pack and I will have them sent to me from the last leg.

 

Thanks

Rob

We do not have a V2V Committee Chairman for the 2016 V2V. We need someone to step up to the plate and take the lead for this event or it will end. The V2V has been part of the VMC from the beginning! This is not an easy event to co-ordinte since it involve getting people to volunteer as leg captions for 14 legs to pass the baton from leg to leg.

 

The Events Committee needs help to continue the tradition of support for our the V2V.

 

If you are the person or persons that can meet this challenge contact me ASAP!

 

Chuck Miller

Events Chairman
