2012 Rubithon

Is there going to be a Rubithon this year? I don't see it listed on the TLCA website.

My understanding is it's a "committee planning Rubithon" committee only by invite to plan/prepare for the 25th 2013 rubithon. Participants are encouraged to wait 'till next year for the "BIG" 25th aniversary run, as there will be no trail guides, dinner, raffle, ect. this year.

Was talking about this just the other day with my dad. Going to try and make some trip out west next summer, this looks like a trip that will be worth the drive from houston.

Sign up for the Marlin Crawler Round up in lieu of Rubithon if you can't wait until next year.

Owwwww!!!!. That hurts. I was just talking to dave about this. I had plans to get a TON of work done this week since I had it off. I spent the entire week hanging out with my daughter instead.

I have a plan, and it involves some friends lending a hand once I get all my stuff together. Hopefully it will be running this summer. Which means fine tuning for next summer for Rubithon.

I think I'll go in the third week of June anyway, it's tradition.
And it's only 30 minutes way. Why not go?
