Once again, I will be running the volunteer crew at 24HOA this year. Details are still being finalized but here are some updates from last year:

The group will have to cover the CNC permit fee that was waived in 2016 - approx $300 for the entire group.

We will be able to have the large 5th wheel trailer on site again. This means $20pp to cover the cost of driving it out there, propane, cleaning, etc.

We will organize food, schedule, roles etc. closer to the date.

There is no parking on site. A shuttle from Canmore will take you and your bike to the event.

We may get some swag at the end of the event but please do not ask or bug me about it.

Once you sign up, you will recieve a direct invitation from the 24HOA must complete that as well
