Packing Tips

The bag that you bring to store your belongings should be waterproof and made of a sturdy material that will hold up throughout the week. Please no sharp edged straps or buckles on the outside. Also, mark your bag in a way to help you find it among the other bags.

You are allowed two (2) bags per rider, and each bag should weigh less than 60 lbs. The reason is any heavier and you will have trouble loading and unloading your stuff out of the baggage trucks! Pack light! To ensure your clothing stays dry, pack clothes in large plastic bags, press them flat to remove extra air, then seal.
