3.27.20

Rush Off Park Operations are temporarily closed due to the COVID19 virus effective at 8 pm today, March 27, 2020.

Following the direction of Governor Beshear in his address last night urging increased measures to prevent the spread of the COVID19 virus, including his urging of limited activity in parks and multiple conversations with local and state officials, this is a necessary decision for the safety of our patrons and families.

Concerning the Anniversary Bash, we have been diligently working on an postponing the event to an alternate date. We hope to announce that later today. The event tickets already purchased online will be good for the new date. If you can’t make it or would like a refund, just request it through Eventbrite and we will make sure that happens. We will have the option to refund them up to 30 days in advance of the rescheduled date.

We will continue to monitor the situation and our Governors updates and look forward to the opportunity to reopen. Until then please stay safe and stay healthy.

Update 3.25.20

The park will remain open this weekend (subject to governmental action), continuing to operate under the Social Distancing guidance from the CDC and within the requirements provided by our government. The following precautions will be in place this weekend:

• Permits will be available through the window only. No person will be permitted to enter the office.

• Increased frequency of sanitizing and cleaning.

• No congregating of groups in outside areas. We will be monitoring this closely and ask that you also monitor this between each other.

• Maintain a safe distance of at least 6 feet apart in all areas, at all times.

• Only members from the same family unit (or those who co-habitate) may ride together in an offroad vehicle.

• Camping will be prohibited until further notice

• The trails will be closing at 8 pm until further notice

• The only way the park can remain open is if we as riders maintain social distancing and observe these guidelines. We will be patrolling the park and enforcing this requirement.

• These are subject to change based on governmental action. If there is updated governmental action, we will update you immediately.

Social Distancing is important, and these are requirements. Our governmental leaders have recommended outdoor activity as long as we are observing social distancing. Our mental health in the times of crisis is essential and we feel fortunate that we can provide a mental outlet.

Stay safe and stay well!

Update March 20, 2020

We continue to monitor the developments surrounding the COVID-19 virus. Our eyes are glued to the information daily, hoping for positive information that will give us guidance on our upcoming event.

We are still hopeful for that guidance and still hopeful the event will be a go. Times are unprecedented and looking forward to the event provides us with a glimmer of hope for things to get back to normal.

Our goal is to be able to make a definite determination on the event by the end of next week – March 27. That is the end of the initial two week recommendation “to stay home” by our Governor. Hopefully by then, we will have enough information available to know our path forward.

While we realize this message doesn’t necessarily provide an answer to the question “will the event still be happening?”, we hope it does provide some clarity about our thinking and a solid timeline for you all who are following the event.

If we have updates in the meantime, we will share them. Thanks for sticking with us.

Update 3/18/20

We will remain open this weekend unless there is instruction from the government to close. We will be taking additional safety precautions to observe social distancing (staying 6 feet apart) so that we maintain a safe environment for our riders and for our employees. Some of the measures we are required to take together are:

• Limiting the number of people who may enter the office at one time. Only those who are traveling together, with a maximum of 4 people total, will be authorized to enter the office at the same time.

• Increase the frequency of sanitizing and cleaning.

• No congregating of groups in outside areas.

• Maintain a safe distance of at least 6 feet apart in all areas, at all times.

These are recommendations from the CDC and our government and are steps that we must comply with to remain open.
Working together we can keep each other safe. Thanks for your help!
