1. The Dysfunctional Organization Marker
Inscription. On Labor Day Weekend 2004, The Dysfunctional Organization held the first "Cantina for the Con." With the sale of that first "Dysfunctional" taco, "Cantina for the Con" became an annual Labor Day event. To date, "Cantina for the Con" has raised over a quarter of a million dollars for the benefit of the Rubicon Trail.

Every driver and rider that crosses the Rubicon owes that experience, in part, to The Dysfunctional Organization. Without this event and the support of trail users, dysfunctional and otherwise, the trail on which you now stand would not be open as we know it today.

Thank you TDO!
