Details on Ivanpah Dry Lake (and good advice for most dry lakes)
Where to Stay:  Primm Valley Resort has three Casinos. Whiskey Pete's is usally the least expensive although they all are very reasonable.  The Primm Valley Casino reservation number is 888-774-6668 . Motor homes and camping trailers generally can get onto the lake with only moderate difficulty.  Camping on the lake in a tent is do-able but dusty (and some years, really cold).

Getting to the site: Get off I-15 at Primm (about 40 miles southwest of Las Vegas, NV).  Go NE toward the Primmadona, Turn right at the first light and drive along the edge of the resort (SW) past to the Lotto Store where the road turns SE. About 100 yards past the Lotto Store the road bends around to the left  and there is a dirt road going through the fence on the right.  Follow that dirt road 3+ miles along the east edge of the lake to camp (Camp is usually very close to N35 deg 33’, W115 deg, 23’ although it moves from time to time depending on conditions and the preferences of event organizers). 

Notes:  Do not take the dirt road that runs SE along the fence.  There is often a wash just past the fence that may be difficult for some vehicles.   A little shovel work goes a long way.

Cow to Cow
May 26-28 At Smith Creek Memorial Day Weekend
An annual, non-Nalsa Cup event designed as a family friendly gathering for good friends, good food, great laughs for those with a land sailing habit. We will toss the cones out for some very informal racing around the pins and to safely identify sailing areas for kids big and little. Bring friends and family to teach sailing and share the joy. I’d look for the enduro to occur with the really really really big perpetual trophy you can put yer name on. No Fees, Pre-order only Commemorative T-shirts $20 to Paypal.me/ReneeFields in the notes put Name, phone number, address, T-shirt size(s), long or short sleeve. With any luck, snowshoes will not be required this year.

Oct , 2019. —Alvord Desert, Oregon|

This week-long informal gathering at the Alvord Desert in Oregon.  It's a great time to bring your yacht out and tune it up against some of the best.  Since there is no official racing (or any other program for that matter) feel free to come and go as best fits your schedule.  Just show up! Great, big, interesting playa and some of the best sunsets anywhere.Nice hot and cold springs near playa. People often show up a few days early and may stay late.
