Here are some details that you might need to know:

Swope trails are at the intersection of Oldham Rd and Oakwood Rd in Kansas City, Missouri.  6922 Oakwood Rd.  seems to work for GPS purposes.  You will see a “Camp Lake At The Woods” sign at the entrance.  Head past the open gates and up the hill.  Registration, start, finish and party zone will all be in the general area of the Hogan building. At the top of the hill.

There will be parking at the top near registration/start/finish.  Be mindful of your parking!  There will be limited space so don’t park like a jackass.  Also, because of the limited space, please leave your trailers and RVs at home for this event.  There is additional parking at the Camp Lake of the Woods entrance at the bottom of the hill, but this should only be used if parking is full at the top.

Registration is completely closed.  There will be no on-site registration.  Please don’t ask us if you can sneak in your buddies at the last second.  We will say no and it will be awkward.

There are available water spigots at the park that anyone can use.  You will need to supply your own ice.

We will be supplying donuts on Saturday morning, and something to soak up the booze in the afternoon.  Maybe pizza, maybe some sort of meat.  We aren’t sure, but feel free to bring your own food and grills if you don’t want to rely on us.

New Belgium taps the kegs at 2:30pm.  If you want beer before this, you’ll need to bring your own.

For those who have signed up for camping, you are welcome any time Friday or Saturday to come and set up your campsites.  Camp at the top of the hill, wherever you want.  There will be plenty of space to set up, and maybe even some primitive cabins opened for use.  The gate will be closing at dusk, but there will be an alternate gate opened that you can enter and leave through.  The road is a one way only, so please use caution while driving the wrong way up this street.
