I'll auction my spot off to the highest bidder!:cool: The "reserve" on the bid will make you REALLY want the spot. Proceeds will go to my favorite charity...me.:cool:

OK, I'm just kidding, missed my first DRV/MRV Rendezvous ever for last years DRV due to a scheduling conflict, no intentions of missing this one. I know that it was hard for some folks to figure out their logistics ahead of time, but I sure miss the original premise for this event when the coordinates weren't disclosed until a few days before the event. The staff did post a pic of the event location one year ahead of time, I clicked on the pic "properties" and the pic had an "Anza Borrego" title, narrowing down the location for me. I suppose not knowing exactly how many miles to go down a graded dirt road to get there these days adds the tiniest element of surprise.:eek:

Here it is, the long-awaited Desert Rendezvous 2018 Schedule. There are some big changes this year. I am sure most of you have noticed but we added a day and will now be opening at Noon on Thursday. I know this is open desert, but please be patient and don't arrive before noon.

There are also big changes for Saturday and Sunday. Both the Desert Cleanup and the Raffle have been moved to Sunday. The Potluck and Dutch oven competition will remain on Saturday.

Please look at the following schedule closely.
