WE WELCOME YOU TO THE BEST RIDE IN THE COUNTRY!

 

Wichita Falls Water Supply - There have been few questions from riders about the quality of the municipal water supply in light of some of the misinformed negative publicity about the recently implemented recycling treatment processes. The Wichita Falls municipal water system maintains the highest quality rating – “Superior” – as certified by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The system is one of a small minority of public water systems that has added a Reverse Osmosis process to the purification of water. The water meets the standards of a very  rigorous testing regime and is a higher quality than water treated by just conventional methods. For additional information please go to:  www.wichitafallstx.gov and view the informational video provided on the City of Wichita Falls website.

To All of Our Riders – We do our best to make sure that the HH100 is a great weekend, enjoyed by everyone, and we couldn’t do that without the help of our local community.

With that in mind, it has come to our attention that there may be a problem for people who have pre-paid for reservations at “The New Grand Hotel.” We want to reach out to anyone who might be effected and bring them up-to-date on the status of the hotel.

It has been confirmed that the hotel does not currently have a lodging permit, and a permit application has not been submitted to the city departments. It is likely that your pre-booked rooms will not be habitable for this year’s event.

We have attempted to contact the local number for the hotel, but lines have been disconnected. If you pre-payed, and have been unable to contact the hotel, email us at media@hh100.org
