Subject: Stumpjumpers News - 2018 Kenda Stumpjumpers Desert 100
Date: February 5th 2018
The 48th Annual Kenda Stumpjumpers Desert 100 is only 9 weeks away on April 7th & 8th 2018. It's time to dust off your riding gear, your motorhome, and your motorcycle and get ready for another great family weekend of riding and racing in Odessa. A few important reminders for this year:
The gates will open at NOON THURSDAY April 5th. We had such a great response last year to our 6pm opening that we are trying to get everyone in earlier this year. You are able to get in and setup your camp, but we ask that no riding take place until Friday morning. NO EXCEPTIONS! If you show up before Noon, you will be turned away and sent to wait in town. If you park on the highway, the county sheriff will ask you to leave or have your vehicle towed. If you get to Odessa early, head into town and stock up on groceries and gas. The town of Odessa is a huge supporter of the Stumpjumpers and the offroad community, so the more support we can give them, the better.

For 2018 we will once again have the Beginners Ladies Ride! This ride is to promote beginner riders in a non intimidating environment. It is a chance for beginner women to ride some easy terrain without getting run over by the fast guys and gals on the poker run course. The ride will be on the kid's race course, immediately following the kid's races Saturday morning. You can either ride out there after the kid's rider's meeting at 8am, or meet at the stage by 9:30am to be escorted to the course by SJMC staff. Please be on time! This event is free. NO BIG BIKES. 19" Front wheel size max. No racers. This is a very special piece of land used for the kids race, and we want to preserve it for future use. The ride will be 45 minutes to an hour long. Space is limited, Please RSVP to email@example.com

We will have the tracks inside camp removed this year in an effort to provide more space for camping. Riding will still be available to everyone on Friday and Saturday outside the camp area. There will be an added dumpster and bank of toilets near the farthest end of camp. We will also be adding some more access roads to make it easier to find a spot to camp.
No campfires! Period! Propane fires are allowed. Our rule of thumb is this: If you can turn the fire off with a switch, it's allowed. We can't risk a fire in camp, and will enforce this rule very strictly.
Helmets must be worn at all times! Anyone on a moving motorcycle, including passengers, children, people on pitbikes, etc., MUST wear a helmet at all times. If you're seen riding without a helmet, you will be asked to get off and walk back to your camp to get one. If we have to tell you more than once, you could be asked to leave the event.
First gear only in camp! There are thousands of acres to ride out there. There is no reason to ride fast in camp. Keep it in first gear and ride safely in camp until you're out past the rope line that marks the camp boundary.
No riding at night! This is another obvious safety rule. Make sure your bike is back at your camp by nightfall. We will be enforcing this rule this year, especially around the beer tent.
No UTVs, quads, or golf carts. This is a motorcycle only event, even in camp. Please leave your quads and UTVs at home. You will be turned away at the gate if you try to bring one of these in to camp.
The poker run is not a race! Please be courteous to the other riders on the course on Saturday.
More updates will be posted on our website and facebook page. www.facebook.com/SJMCDesert100
Your cooperation with these rules will help keep this a fun and safe weekend for everyone! See you in April!
