Dammit John did you say more rain? I just had a nice soggy ride home on the SV thru LA/OC. I'd be very surprised if it didn't r word more up in the desert.

Don't throw the towel in yet.
We should get some news within the next hour and what ever you do, NEVER mention the "r" word again until further notice.

Here is the update as was just posted on the Scta FB page:

Attention ALL Racers, Workers, Crew, & Spectators:
The September Meet @ El Mirage is a GO!!!
Everyone will have to access the lake bed off of Colusa, which is the second entrance past the Visitors Center.
We cannot camp on the shore line at the West End. Most of the lake bed should be dry by Saturday -
If it "r..ns" again we will have to reevaluate.
*****YOU MUST STAY OUT OF THE MUD & ANY WATER*****

Sounds like we might have gotten a little leniency with the mud balls this time.  :-D  :cheers:

Add a little time to your travel plans.  The north road in is rough.  We used it (in May?) during clean-up day.  And, it's sorta entrenched, so I can't see how it would not be wet.  No way to use the Countyline Road?

Are you required to have a special pass to get on to the lake bed for this weekend?

 When will SCTA announce if the event is still on. Web site says the lakebed is closed.

Stan and others, after you go through the BLM checkpoint at the BLM building instead of proceeding straight towards the dirt, turn to the right and go up about a quarter of a mile and the entrance will be open and unlocked on your left-hand side.   It will be well marked for those of us that can read and write and see.  Should you see any mud or what appears to be loose soil please stray away from it and proceed towards Callaways or the starting line area of the lake bed as it is dry.

Will a small car make it in on the north lake bed entrance? Is it worse then the regular entrance? Need to know before drive up!
