Dear TUFF Community,

We are aware of the U.S. Forest Service’s Inyo National Forest Closure starting August 31, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. through September 17, 2021, at 11:59 p.m.

Here is what we know from USFS as of September 3, 2021:

1) There are no exemptions for events with special use permits

2) our date 9/18 is still clear if we want to operate if the closure lifts but

3) no guarantee if they will end the closure or extend it and

4) no answer on when they will make the closure/extension decision.

Since USFS will not commit to a deadline for the extension decision, we understand how frustrating this is and we will make a decision by EOD Wednesday Sept 8.

Please help us make an informed decision by weighing in with your opinion and filling out the form linked here:

Volunteer Sign-up

If our event is able to continue, we still need volunteer help.

We put together volunteer shifts where we can use some extra hands. Please follow this link to BikeReg and sign up.

Volunteer at least one shift to receive: Mammoth Tuff shirt, Sockguy socks, The Pro's Closet water bottle, Monster swag bag, 4 raffle tickets (plus a raffle ticket for every additional hour served), and food will be provided if you’re shift is near lunch/dinner timeframes.
