Well… the weatherpersons can’t seem to decide what Saturday has in store for us. Everyone seems to agree that will get rain on Saturday night, but there is a lot of versions of what may or may not happen during the Festival.
With that in mind, here is a weather reminder: The MNDNR will determine if the weather is such that the trails will close, not anyone else. If they determine the trails are closed, they are closed, no exceptions.
Here is how trail closures will affect trail related activities:
Miners Mountain Race
- If trails are closed before the race, the race will be cancelled.
- If trails are closed during the race, racers will take the current standings as they pass through the start/finish line at the end of whatever lap they are on.
Miners Gamble Poker Ride
- If trails are closed before the poker ride, the ride will be cancelled.
- If trails close, actually demoing a bike on the trail will no longer be allowed.
There will be no refunds for trail closures and event cancellations.
All other events and festival activities will be ongoing regardless of weather.
