(View of GOMR Village)
GOMR Nation is where Gomers live. At least for one weekend a year. A Gomer team camps in a GOMR Village Site that is specifically theirs. They have a name for their Village Site. They have a flag that stakes their claim in the Village. They may even have a pike that has the "kills" they've acquired. This is your home. Make it yours. It could be pretty and pink, or dark and sinister, or simply fun.
GOMR Nation is the 22 acre campus of Blue Ridge Christian School, where the Start, Leg 18 Exchange, and Finish are for the Get Outside Mountain Relay. Gomer teams will be given a piece of land to call their very own for the weekend. This is your Site in the Village. It will be approximately 15'x20', which will be large enough for several small tents (no vechicles allowed) or a couple of big tents. Or everyone can sleep under the stars. The point is, call the Village home. Come up with a great theme that matches your Gomer team name and go crazy. Pink flamingos and a wading pool? Okay. Pirate Ship? Fine. Redneck front porch? Great. Think you'll miss being in a van for 30 hours? Bring some uncomfortable benches and sleep sitting up. However you want to do it. Bring out your Gomer team's personality and you may win the prize for best GOMR Village Site and bragging rights for a year.
GOMR Nation is the center of this Hub Relay. It is where everything but the running happens. Bathrooms, meals, games, activities, rest, fellowship, etc. Haven't you wanted to get to know the people in the other van from other relays? Chances are you weren't able to. GOMR Nation will provide a relaxing and festive atmosphere between your GOMR legs.
