    Any word on the 49er

    Any Norcal members out there who can supply info about the 2010 49er rally?
    Went last year and loved it so I want to go back this year. I understand it's in Mariposa on Memorial Day weekend but there's no other info I can find.

    Anyone know what the facilities are like down there?

    That rally gets a little smaller every year. Maybe this move'll revive it some...

    This is what I found for the fair grounds.
    We went to the last 49er there in 1992, we had a good time.
    My bike was new then, still have it.

    A nice place;

    The Mariposa Fairground is a well kept facility and is quite old a place. The town is quaint, smaller than Auburn, but neat! Camping has always been very good there, with grassy grounds for the most part. I went to most all the 49er Rallies there. It'll bring back many memories, being back there again. I'm only 90 miles away and still see the place frequently on rides, so know it's well kept and a popular site for many other gatherings. Should be great. Randy

    We went to a Central Cal Beemer Bash there one year, back when we lived in Fiddletown. Great ride down SR-49 to get there, tons of great riding in the area, especially on the Poker Run set up by G Stofer. We had a really great time riding the area and at the grounds (except the flies because a horse event had been held the weekend before......). Could be 'warm', but everyone I speak with that went to the original 49er's there always LOVED them.

    We are going Friday but most of the good roads are still closed for the winter.
    120 - Tioga Pass, 108 - Sonora Pass, 4 - Ebbetts Pass all closed.
    88 - Carson Pass this morning chains or snow tires required.
    Maybe 50 or I-80.
