Dear Silver State Family

Due to the persistence of the current pandemic, the Board of the Silver State Classic Challenge has regretfully decided to cancel their September event. The pandemic is still a real danger to everyone, and the Board wants to do our part in putting health and safety first and foremost.

We are hopeful circumstances will change, and we can safely hold the event in May of 2021, same place, same road, same incredible experience for everyone who comes to Ely.

Thank you,
Kelley Gibbs
Chairman of the Board
