W: Virginia City 100

Dear Riders,
September 17, 2016 is rapidly approaching, and with that the Nevada All-State Trail Rider’s final ride of the NASTR Triple Crown.
Please join us for the 49th Annual Virginia City 100 Mile Endurance Ride, held in historic Virginia City, Nevada.  Lots of fun, excitement, and a challenging trail.
Attached you will find the brochure and entry for this year’s ride, along with some detailed historical information about the ride.  You can also access this information on our web page.  Check it out at
Please help welcome Crysta Turnage, our new Ride Manager.  Crysta has helped manage VC100 as a day and/or night manager several years while Connie rode (including last year) and has numerous years of experience as an individual ride manager.  We have heard concerns over “new management” but rest assured you can still expect the same quality event as always.  VC100 is still very much a NASTR club ride, and Connie is still highly involved in the planning and management. 
With the cost of holding this type of ride continuing to rise, it is more difficult for us to plan our ride without a headcount, however tentative.  If you could provide us with a quick response as to whether or not you plan to attend, it would help us greatly in planning one of the oldest and most historic rides in the west. We will keep you updated with any important information or changes via email or Facebook, so please let us know if you will be attending this year.  We also need a head count for Friday’s dinner and Sunday’s banquet.
Come prepared to clean your camp site of ALL manure and hay.  This MUST BE DONE before you leave ride camp.  This does not mean spreading it out or throwing it over the edge of the hill.  Nothing can be left behind to attract mustangs into town.  NASTR has to pay a hefty cleaning deposit for the use of the Ice House, and throwing your hay and manure over the edge of the mountain, or leaving any hay or manure, will result in NASTR losing our deposit.  Extra garbage bags will be available in the ride office. 
PARKING INFORMATION:  Base camp will be held at the Ice House. Parking will be limited once again, having lost some of the lower section of parking.  Last year the upper section was expanded, and we should once again be able to accommodate a small ride, without limiting the number of entries. There will be limited space for crew camping, so please take this into consideration.   We will have volunteers to assist with parking.  We ask for your cooperation and patience.  Should you arrive Thursday or early Friday, before our parking staff, we ask that you please take the least amount of space as possible, and situate yourself to park close together and not block access.  If you could double up (carpool), and limit corral space, that would be helpful.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you the third weekend in September.

The ride entry, current Triple Crown standings, as well as historical stats on past winners, BC winners, Triple Crown winners, and buckle winners can be found here.
