We donated the AWD Rokon trail bike you see here to Wente Scout Reservation in 2016.

Rules

Rules. We gotta have 'em. You can't make a mistake if you know what mistakes can be made.

Camping

  1. Camping is first-come / first-serve.
  2. Trailers and campers must be registered with us in advance. No on site registration. You will be asked to show proof of registration.
  3. Once you have claimed your site, go to the general store and indicate where you are located.
  4. WEED: Marijuana is not permitted at Camp Wente. If you are caught with it, you may be asked to leave. BSA follows Federal law which on private property supersedes California law.

Dogs

  1. Well-behaved dogs are allowed on-leash at all times. You need to have control over your dog.
  2. Dogs are not allowed in the lake.
  3. Dogs are to be nowhere near the start-line during the race's start at 8:00 am.
  4. Dogs are not allowed near the dining hall/administrative buildings due to animals marking territory.
  5. Dogs that are not well-behaved will need to be removed by their owners which generally means the owner must leave, which would suck. So don't bring the Diggingest Dog.

Fire

  1. Fire can be bad, and it only allowed in existing campfire rings.
  2. There is a fire bell near the lake. If there is an uncontrolled fire, RING THE BELL.

Parking

  1. You must park in designated parking areas only. They will be marked. Do not park where you see tape.
  2. You can't park (or camp) by the bike program test ride loop.

Arrival / Departure

  1. DO NOT EXCEED 10 MILES PER HOUR. THIS IS NOT A JOKE. IT IS SLOW!!! YOU WILL BE YELLED AT AND HAVE THINGS THROWN AT YOUR CAR IF YOU BREAK THIS RULE. THERE ARE KIDS RUNNING AROUND, BIKES EVERYWHERE, AND THERE WILL BE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR DRIVING FASTER THAN 10MPH AT WENTE.
  2. You may arrive Thursday evening as early as 3:00 pm to grab your campsite for the weekend.
  3. You may not arrive during the race start, and you may not depart until the race has wound down at 3:00 pm on Saturday.
  4. You may hang out until Sunday afternoon. Then, you gots to go.

Racing

  1. All racers start together at 8:00 am Saturday.
  2. On lap 1, all riders' lap times start at 8:00 am, and conclude when you pass through the finish arch.
  3. For teams, a rider's lap time begins when their teammate completes their lap.
  4. You may start a lap up until 4:00 pm.
  5. Laps must be completed by 5:00 pm, when timing stops.
  6. Being mean or unfair to others will get you disqualified.
