Dixie Run 2018

I am doing the same volunteer work as last year (ordering/organizing the port-potties, dumpsters, and kids bouncies) so I will be down early in the week. Camp, wheel, and enjoy life before the main event.

Who else is in.

Looking at the calendar now. A bit far to take a chance on self propelling my daily driver, but looking at the logistics of potentially coming down to watch the fun.

The SFWDA leadership announced that this will be the last Dixie run at GMP. The parks owners are not trustworthy in regards to long term commitments (meaning one week they want to sell, the next week they are not sure) and are unwilling to maintain the facilities adequately.

I guess this wasn't a big surprise. Any indication for future venues?

Next year it will be at AOP. Supposedly that will be the new "home" of Dixie Run.
