Cantina for the ‘Con a Success

The 4th Annual Rubicon Trail Foundation (RTF) Cantina for the ‘Con was held over the Labor Day weekend and was a great success on many levels. We had a new record of over $20,000.00 in raffle prizes and raised $20,083.00 for RTF! We can’t thank our vendors and users enough for their generous support.

This year’s event saw the cooperation of several clubs working together to support the Rubicon. Here’s a list of clubs and the duties they shared:

·       California Creepers Club: Parking & Traffic Control
·       Pirates of the Rubicon Club: Saturday & Sunday Cook Crew, Food Prep & Serving
·       Rock-N-Roll 4x4 Club: Vendor solicitation and Ticket Sale Promotion
·       Rock Zombies Club: Sunday Food Prep Crew, Raffle Donation s
·       Rubicon Rockheads Club: Audio/Communication system, Margarita/Slushy, Knob Polishing Booth, and EveryTrailisSacred.com swag.
·       TDO: Event Planning and Organization, Food Prep, Cook Crew and Serving

Throughout the event, the Rubicon Trail Foundation continued to make contact and educate trail users, providing maps, answering questions, and encouraging trail etiquette. All weekend long, we handed out Wag Bags and Oil Spill Kits to trail users, as made available by a grant provided by El Dorado County.

The Vendors Showcase also grew this year. These vendors not only donated product to the Raffle but also set up booths to show off their latest and greatest OHV products. When you’re trying to determine where to spend your hard earned cash, please give these folks extra consideration:

4 Wheel Parts-Modesto
Auto Tats- Shirts and Stickers
Davez Off-Road Products
El Dorado National Forest
Friends of El Dorado
Jeepers Jamboree
Trail Gear
Rubicon Rock Heads

For the fourth year in a row Robb’s Valley Resort supplied ice and support and for the second year, Adam from Uncle Toms Cabin was our steadfast announcer. These two local businesses support the Rubicon Trail so be sure to stop in and thank them the next time you visit Rubicon.

On behalf of the Rubicon Trail Foundation, NorCal Clubs and Vendors, THANK YOU for the generous support! It’s because of you, the trail users and supporters, that this year’s Cantina for the ‘Con was such a success!

The last Taco hadn’t been sold and we’re already making plans for the 5th Annual to be held over Labor Day weekend 2009 so, if you have any suggestions on how we can make it better or if you and your club want to get involved, please contact Mark Langford at This email address is being protected from spambots.
