    Is this event happening this year? I rolled my tickets over from last year and want to start making reservations if necessary. I'm pretty sure EJS is being held again this year so I don't see why we couldn't go.

    So far, yes, we are having gone this year. We're waiting to publish information until we can get an update from the county. Expect to see updated information in the next week or so.

    We are working through some details with Grand County right now. Expect an update to be published this week. The hoops were being required to jump through are a bit crazy.

    Ok, yeah, I understand. That town being a destination town I can't believe they are willing to kill all those local businesses like this. It's absolutely ridiculous.

    Moab survived for quite some time with a much smaller number of visitors. In the last 7-8 years, the number of visitors, and groups wanting run events has literally ruined that town. They don't have the infrastructure for it. I know the permanent residents are sick to death of it. They want their town back. Having run 80 plus trails down there for years now, I can tell you the environment is being ruined by careless visitors too.... The national Parks are being overrun. It's become a place to avoid IMO.

    Personally I support their efforts to limit what happens there. Particularly with SxS, as they have done by far the most damage.

    That's sad, I've been through town a cpl times but never off road. We talked to several locals that say the same as above, they'd just like their town back.
