The LOC will be offering free bus service from the Metropolis to Blue Moo and back to Metropolis on Saturday. There will be at least 2 different departure times Saturday from Metropolis and 2 or 3 departure times from the Blue Moo to Metropolis after competition on Saturday. We want everyone to be safe after a long day and celebrating the conclusion of Worlds. If you wish to use this free service please send email to info@barefootworlds.org and just mention free bus service and the number of people on your party. This will insure there are an adequate number of buses available.
