Member Run – 2020 Season Opener

May 3, 2020 all-day
Darling Line

The last two seasons, the EOTB has had to break with tradition and move our season opener to the Darling Line do to excessively wet conditions at the Gorge. This season, we thought we’d skip the rescheduling and go straight to Darling and limit our season opener to members.

The trail runs along a power line offering a variety of rocky obstacles to play on with the option of bypassing obstacles you don’t feel you, or your vehicle, are quite ready for. As the Season Opener usually attracts a large number of vehicles, please come prepared for a slow pace, with plenty of opportunity to socialize while watching your peers tackle the various obstacles. It’s a great opportunity to get to know your fellow members and take some great photos!

Given the unpredictability of our climate, the schedule could be changed. Please keep an eye on the calendar.
