The 5th Annual Dirksen Derby at Mt. Bachelor will be held on the weekend of December 17th-18th, 2011! Just like the weather reports in the NW, the actual details of the event are still a bit hazy.  But one thing is for sure, the Dirksen Derby is going down and the good times are guaranteed.  For more information see below:

Date: December 17th-18th, 2011

Schedule:  The whole weekend!  Depending on weather, snow fall and poor planning, the schedule of the event will remain flexible.  All participants are expected to be on-hill both Saturday and Sunday ready to either race the course, cheer on their fellow competitors, bash some windlips or stuff their faces with Parilla clam chowder. If everything goes perfectly as planned, Friday the course will be open for timed practice, Saturday we will hold both the Mens qualifier and the Splitboard race, and then Sunday will be everything else (the top Mens qualifiers from Saturday, Derby Elites, Womens, Older and Wiser, Groms and Sit-ski).  But remember, the actual schedule can change quickly!

Registration: $25 per racer, per event. All proceeds go to Tyler Eklund. Racers can register online at MtBachelor.com or at Mt. Bachelor`s West Villiage lodge on Friday afternoon, Saturday morning (8:00-10:00) or Sunday morning (8:00-10:00). There will NOT be a limit to the amount of competitors allowed in the event. Discounted lift tickets will be available at registration.

Dirksen Derby Kickoff Party: Friday, December 16th, 2011@ 7:00 PM. Location: the Poet House in downtown Bend, Oregon. All ages. Music, Drinks, Raffle, and “Broken Board” auction.
