15th Annual Cantina For The Con Postponed

Press Release:

15th Annual Cantina For The Con Postponed

It is with heavy hearts we announce that the 15th Annual Cantina For The Con will be postponed until 2020.

After meeting with the Forest Service and addressing their concerns with the construction closure of North Shore campground and the dispersed camping area adjacent to it, RTF has determined that the severely limited parking, camping sites and turn around points near the construction area would greatly affect traffic flowing in and out of our event. The Rubicon Trail and its user’s safety will always be a top priority for the Rubicon Trail Foundation and we feel this year’s event will only add to a difficult situation. We also hope this will free up some much needed space to help offset these closures on one of the trails busiest weekends.

We greatly apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. We know a lot of people look forward to this event each year and we look forward to seeing all of you as well!

Please stay tuned for future upcoming events.

Thank You,
Rubicon Trail Foundation

Vicki Sanders Resignation

For immediate release: July 23, 2019

It is with great reluctance that we announce the acceptance of Vickie Sanders’ resignation from the Rubicon Trail Foundation Board of Directors.

Vickie Sanders, the El Dorado County representative has served on the Rubicon Trail Foundation Board for the last 5 years as a non-voting member and has chosen to resign her board position effective July 17, 2019.
Vickie will continue to be a liaison to the Rubicon Trail Foundation and we look forward to continuing a close working relationship with El Dorado County. We have two upcoming trips planned with the County: the VIP and OHMVR trip which are in the planning phase and will move forward as scheduled.

Vickie will be missed by the board, she has served with passion and strength. She truly is a trail user, advocate and has brought about many positive changes to the trail and community.

David Thomas
President Rubicon Trail Foundation
