 Just a suggestion: Being we could easily run all these stages (Day 1 and 2) in one day it'd be awesome if we could get one more stage each day. Maybe a Mill Creek (same as last year) to close out day one and two (so we are off the mountain as the ghee asks).

Nothing wrong with running somethinig twice IMO. More racing = better!

 Mill Creek is outside GTR's permit boundary and requires separate USFS permitting to incorporate into the event. That's a decision made early in the year.
