Default 2010 6th Annual Cantina for the Con'

The 2010 cantina for the con' is fast approaching. Support one of america's favorite off road trails and the rubicon trail foundation by coming out to loon lake and the rubicon trail on labor day week end September 4th and 5th. As always IH Parts America will be supporting the event by donating another one of our patented all terrain welding carts to the events raffle.

Here is a follow up from last years show courtesy of Mark langford -
the 5th annual rubicon trail foundation (rtf) cantina for the ‘con was held at the loon lake entrance to the rubicon trail over labor day weekend. This years cantina was dedicated to the memory of our good friend dennis mayer. We lost dennis last November but those of us lucky enough to know him are better for the time we shared. Dennis was our inspiration, mentor, motivator and, most of all he was a great friend. May dennis live long in our hearts, memories and prayers.

The cantina was a great success on many levels. We had over $15,000.00 in prizes for our drawing and raised a cantina record of over $33,000.00 for the rtf! This puts the total amount raised by the cantina for the ‘con to $100,000.00!!! We can’t thank our vendors and trail users enough for their generous support.

This year’s event featured a first for the rubicon trail…. A 4x4 ice cream truck built by the rubicon rockheads. The cantina is a success year after year because of the cooperation of several clubs working together to support a common cause, the rubicon trail. Here’s a list of clubs and the duties they shared:

*Auburn Jeep club- served a pancake breakfast Saturday morning & donated 100% of the proceeds.
*California association of 4-wheel drive clubs- donated the event trailer, tents, tables, chairs and towable bbq.
*California creepers: parking & traffic control
*vacaville cliffhangers: tire filling station
*mountain transit authority (mta): ice boxes, raffle donation, food prep & serving
*pirates of the rubicon: Saturday & Sunday cook crew, food prep & serving
*rock-n-roll: vendor solicitation and ticket sale promotion
*rubicon rock heads: audio/communication system, 4x4 ice cream truck.
*tdo: event planning and organization, food prep, cook crew and serving
*many individual trail users that stopped in and offered their time to help.

In addition to cooking, food preparation and serving, the rtf officers & directors continued to make contact and educate trail users, providing maps, answering questions and encouraging proper trail etiquette. Throughout the labor day weekend we handed out oil spill kits to trail users. A grant provided by el dorado county made the spill kits available and the recipients were very grateful to have them. If you are interested in receiving a spill kit, please stop by the kiosk at loon lake.

The vendors showcase also grew this year. These vendors not only donated product to the drawing but also spent the time and money to set up booths and show off some of the latest and greatest off-road products available. When you’re trying to determine who to spend your hard earned cash with, please give these companies and organizations extra consideration:

*4 wheel parts- sacramento
*friends of the rubicon
*metal cloak fabrication
*ruff stuff
*marlin crawler
*jeepers jamboree- also donated (4) porta-potties & (2) wash stations
*trail gear
*rubicon rock heads

on behalf of the rubicon trail foundation, norcal clubs and vendors, thank you for your generous support! It’s because of you, the trail users and supporters, that the 5th annual rtf cantina for the ‘con was a success!

The last taco hadn’t been sold and we were already making plans for the 6th annual cantina for the con to be held over labor day weekend 2010. Next year’s event will feature a Jeep cherokee that will be raffled off to a very lucky winner. Ticket information will be available in the coming months. If you have any suggestions on how we can make it better or if you and your club want to get involved, please contact me at mwlangford@comcast.net. We would really appreciate hearing from you.
So come on out and support the infamous rubican trail. See attached flyer for all the information.
