Latest news from Gopher Dunes..
May 10, 2012….
So far Gopher Dunes has already wrapped up a busy line-up of spring events with Season Opener Races for both CMRC & TVR, and we just hosted a SCR Club Race on Sunday; plus we’ve had a couple MX Group Training Sessions in April and then our ever-popular Spring 4×4 MudFest which attracted over 2,500 spectators and brought out over 400 trucks and their anxious drivers wanting to challenge their 4×4 mud-wielding abilities.
A fun day was had by all, and for those that don’t really know what goes on at such an event, just visit youtube.com and search out Gopher Dunes Mudfest.
KTM Canada was at Gopher Dunes on May 5th. as one of their cross-Canada stops for their Test Ride Days and once again we welcomed the presence of Red Bull.
Gopher Dunes is the relocation site for this Saturday’s TVR Club Race….that’s May 12th. So on Saturday only the trails will be open for public riding. We are open today and tomorrow until 8pm for leisure riding on the main track, peewee track and trails, and then again on Mother’s Day Sunday from 11am to 6pm.
Now for those interested in learning to ride a dirt bike or quad, or want to increase their MX sand racing skills, we are now taking reservations for private, semi-private, small group and family training sessions. You can bring out your own machines for training, or rent one of our 2012 HONDA bikes or quads. These lessons can be arranged on a weekday from Tuesday through Friday and for any preferred number of hours. Weekend availability is limited. Contact us at email@example.com or call Barb at 519-842-2781.
We DO NOT rent out our units for personal leisure riding. They are solely assigned for training purposes and guided trail riding tours or supervised track riding!

For Minors under 18: Please help us speed up the sign-in process…
It is mandatory that Minors fill out the Parental Consent Waiver for Parental.pdf & Minor Waiver Release Waiver for Minors.pdf forms before their first ride at Gopher Dunes in 2012. If you have not yet completed this in its entirety it will need to be done now! Unless you plan on bringing along both parents to the Poker Run, you will need to complete these forms at home. Download and print them, read them, get them signed as per instructions below and bring them along. Without these forms you can be denied riding at the Dunes, so get ‘er done NOW!! Even if both of your parents will be accompanying you, by completing these forms in advance will definitely speed up the sign-in process. Thank you!
Details on completion of both forms:
Waiver for Parental.pdf This Waiver requires the Minors (anyone under age 18) full name printed in Line 1 and then BOTH parents names need to be signed & printed at the bottom, one below the other. This Waiver must be completed once per year as we are required to keep them on file.

Waiver for Minors.pdf This Waiver must be read and signed by the Minor (under 18). He/she must enter their age on Line 5.

The completion of these 2 forms in their entirety are required to be done once a year, and they must be done prior to your first time riding at Gopher Dunes in 2012.
