Yeppers the Whiteout is still on, but we are being asked to limited indoor gatherings.  We will also be taking extra effort to protect our people so below are some changes:
1.  Indoor Friday night Party with Six Dollar String Band is canceled, we are currently looking at an outdoor venue for that but no promises!
2.  No day of registration nor rider check in:  EVERYONE needs to have their teams organized, registered, and in the right category by Friday Feb 4th at 5 pm. I will send out an email to confirm that Wednesday before the team names, people on those teams and category.  All changes need to happen by 5 pm Friday Feb 4th.
3.  Saturday night party is canceled
4.  When riders come in from their laps, they will write on a whiteboard their team name and category and show it through the window to Bill who will be organizing the board with team lap times from inside the Avon.  You will be able to see the board through the window.
5.  We will not allow more than 12 people at a time inside the Avon (to go to the bathroom, to get a screen print of whiteout, etc.) and those people will need to have a mask on.
6.  All participants will need a negative test within 24 hours UNLESS they are fully vaccinated.
What Stays the Same:
1.  We will still be having the same awesome course with kegs out at the outpost (proceeds benefiting Devo), bacon at shrine hill and we will have the street closed in front of the Avon with a tent and a fire to keep warm.
2.  Riders do not need to check in before the event unless they want a beer at the outpost and we will be checking id's and getting wrist bands out (if you forget your ID, ride with it and we can check it out at the outpost).
3.  Awards will be at the rooftop deck of the Coffee Bear and their bar will be open 4pm-8pm.  Rooftop limited to 50 people (ideally those people and families receiving an award!)
4.  We have WO patches for everyone and you can bring items to get screen printed with WO art:
Master Silk Screenist Jenn Rawling will be set up in the Avon Library Saturday February 5th doing onsite WhiteOCTOout prints on your clothing of choice.
Think accordingly for clothing options.
Screen is roughly nine inches squarish. 
Two ink options are available BLACK and WHITE. 
Drop off starting at 9am pick up by 5pm
9am to 12pm printing black ink light (best on light clothing)
12pm to 3pm printing white ink (best on dark clothing)
5$ to 20$ sliding scale...
Bottom line:  We will ride bikes and have fun, BUT it will be very difficult to "hang" anywhere.  Restaurants are open and we will have porta potties for bathroom use, but the Avon nor Grand Imperial are where you can hang out and base your teams out of.  If you do not have a place to stay in Silverton, chances are you will be warming up and waiting for your team members in your car.  I am happy to refund anyone as I know this is less than ideal.  But there is lodging left in Silverton and my personal advice is get a room and let that be where you stay warm while you wait for your team member to come in!
