It Is Time!!!

It is time for the first, official Nevada Chapter meet. It is September 30 in Fallon, for the Mud Bog race. Our very own member, Skipped_link, will be competing. This is a chance for the Northern folks to meet all of us to the south, and vice-versa, along with the Nor Cal Chapter Prez. making an apperance. I urge all of the Nevada Chapter members to show up for the fun.
I hope to see and meet you all. I will post up directions as soon as I get them. For those who want to spend the night there, there are hotels and camp sites. I will be continually posting new info, so keep checking back. Any questions, just ask. Until next time...

Jason, I'll be coming out in my travel trailer. There are a couple of options for RV camping in the Fallon area, Lahontan Lake and a couple of RV parks in the town of Fallon. For folks who may wish to hotel it, there are several choices, including casinos in the area. I will send you more info when I acquire it.
I googled Fallon Hotels, Fallon Casinos and Fallon RV Parks and got lot of info but haven't researched anything further yet. I'll make some contacts in attempt to find more.
Nevada Chapter member Alanco is from Austin Nv area, and may have some good intell as well.
Alanco, post up if you have anything to add.

It's Rattlesnake Raceway. The event starts at six pm.

I will come out with my motorhome so we still need some campground research. It would be cool if we could get spaces at the same park.

The 30th is a Saturday, so perhaps we could get together early for beverages etc.

I will be there - likely arrive on Friday and leave Sunday. I think some of us will be camped at Lahontan Lake.

I expect I will pop across Tioga Pass on Friday, but come home through Reno.

Just thought I'd pipe in & let everyone know that I will be at the races, & since I do not have a toy hauler big enough for the truck I'll be rooming in a hotel/motel, more than likely the super 8 on the east side of town,

I will probably role into town in the after noon & head for the track asap, but if there is a meeting or gathering else were I may stop by there first,

Rattlesnake raceway does not seem to have a map on their website. Does anyone know the exact whereabouts of the place?

I made a tentative reservation at the SageValley RV park which appears to be about four miles west of the center of town.

The raceway is on the west side of town, head out like going to sand mountain, I think the road is cemetary road, it will be on the left side if heading towards sand mountain, as you head down cemetary road you will see sighns directing to the raceway,

Just to let you all know... I might not be joining you in Fallon. It all depends on the next week or so. I still am going to set everything up and still encourage everyone to go. Keep posting whatever informationyou may have. Thanks

05xlt,
I sure hope you can make it. It would be nice to have you there for the #1 meet. But I understand about the distance.

You guys camping should really consider staying out at the Stillwater National Wildlife Area, just east of Fallon (maybe 10 miles). The cost for camping is nada, zero, zilch.. FREE...and the place is beautiful. Just go through Fallon east on Hiway 50 until you hit Route 116 (Route 116 is about 5 miles east of the intersection of Hiway 95 and Hiway 50 in Fallon). Take Hiway 116 about 5 miles to the Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge. You can park in any of the designated camping areas and there are bathrooms at each camping area.

Map to Stillwater


Here is a map to Stillwater from the junction of Hiway 50 and Route 116, just east of Fallon, NV...BTW, I believe that Rattlesnake Speedway is located one mile EAST of Fallon. Take Rio Vista Drive NORTH off of Hiway 50 to the Speedway at Rattlesnake Hill.

The distance is not the problem. I was in a wreck last night with my Explorer. It's going to be $1800 or more to fix it. I have to take care of that and other issues before I go anywhere.

Rent a car, forget the other issues, and take a few days off!!! If you rent a 4 wheel drive from Hertz we will enter it!
