Closing Day, Nov 12, 2011


It’s time for the S’ender Bash again and this year we’ll be throwing it Animal House Style! This year, your cover charge not only goes to a fine charity, it also comes with a free toga at the door. That’s right, think togas, live music (punk rock, rockabilly, and 80’s covers courtesy of the CopOuts), and a screening of Animal House.

We will also be holding an art auction. Among the booty will be limited production Highland artwork printed on canvas and matted prints of pro’s riding our terrain. Make the highest bid and take a piece of Highland home.

Attention All S’ender Bash Party Go’ers: In an effort to keep you all safe Josh Gee will be offering shuttle service to the Tilton hotel area saturday night. Josh will collect a donation for the service

Don’t forget after riding on saturday there is no reason to leave. We have showers and a dinner special going on so that you can come to the party clean and full!
