  • Drive to Standing Boy trails in Columbus GA (Please coordinate your own rides, but we’ll try to help.)
  • Ride Standing Boy (TMBA will set up tent with water cooler and snacks)
  • Check in at hotel (Each attendee is responsible for own booking and payment):
    • Group rate at Hampton Inn downtown is $169 plus taxes and parking.  There are 10 rooms in the block, and each has 2 queen beds.  Here is booking link: https://www.hilton.com/en/attend-my-event/csgrghx-bel-66867d2b-808e-4ebd-8488-1591630f74f0/
