All entrants, supporters and friends of The Virginia City 341 Challenge Hill Climb:
It is with great sadness that I must report to you that we cannot have a hill climb this year because the insurance bill came in at $23,000, which is about 10X what we paid in 2011. We submitted requests to 8 insurance companies and were denied by 7 of them, only one stepped up – but the price is too high for us to absorb.
I have a ton of time invested in this event and really wanted to see it happen. Maybe next year.
Refunds to entrants will be mailed out on Saturday. I apologize to all of you, we tried and this insurance thing caught us off guard – it was totally unexpected.
Thank you for your support for this event,
Amir Rosenbaum, founder
