I've attended it when it was at the spillway at Loon Lake. Tons of rigs and people, a good number of merchandise vendors, major raffle drawing with lots of great prizes and good Mexican food. It's a fun social event but it can become a log jam when trying to leave the spillway and head back out. I have never been to Robb's Resort.

Lots of people and it's for a good cause.

However, this is the event where your vehicles are broken into (there are others obviously), but this is located where its almost entirely the 4 wheeling crowd - and still thefts.   Lock your belongings and keep valuables out of site.

Since it's a different location maybe things will work out better.

Yes, I have heard of thefts at this event too. When you get that many people there are bound to be a few bad apples. Easy pickens for a thief with so many open rigs.

I tend to avoid large crowds... so I've never been.

I used to wheel a lot. . .

I went one year at the Loon Lake spillway -  a lady got stung by a bee (allergic reaction) and was airlifted out! 

That aside, it was fun . . other than the cluster____ of trying to get in and out. a

here is what I found about the 2021 event: Cantina For the Con Resurgence 2021 | Facebook

I've been a few times. I really enjoy the event. It's fun to see all the rigs and vendors. It is a fundraiser and an important one to me to help keep the trail open. But I understand the frustration of others and the deterrent that crowds bring. I think it is worth experiencing. Just keep vehicles locked up, keep valuables with you and bring your patience. 

Um...what?

I'm hoping the fires don't cancel this event like Greg said its a fund raiser and a very important one at that. With the current fire situation places to wheel after this fire season will be reduced a bit. Not to mention possibility of some trails being closed because of the fires. A sad situation all the way around lets keep our Posses family members effected in our thoughts and prayers.
