So I'm assuming you're going?! If so, I'm sending in the check!
Last year we camped starting Thurs. nite, Set up on FRi. then ran a bunch of trails late afternoon into the night.
It was my FJ's first taste of off-road!
I will probably be working a checkpoint or spotting/winching an obstacle. My daughter will be handling t-shirt sales.
I met with Metal Tech and the Trails Team the other night and Mark was still trying to get them to commit (not sure of outcome).
The run starts with a tech inspection, ORV permits required.
2ndly a short driver meeting, then 2 groups are formed, one starting on the trail, one starting at the tech course (articulation ramp, see-saw balance ramp and maybe other challenges.)
This is a poker run, all drivers are given cards at various checkpoints, best hand at the end wins $$$. You also earn points through out the run, competing at different challenges/games at each checkpoint, highest scores also win prizes.
After the run, you are treated to an awesome BBQ, chicken or steak and all the trimmings. followed by the award ceremony and then everyones favorite THE RAFFLE! (Casacde Cruiser members are not allowed to participate, so there is a lot of goodies for all the guest participants!)
This run is open to all vehicles, last year we saw some awesome entries, even an all-wheel drive toyota van!
For any serious obstacles there are bypasses, for those not willing to try the challenge. This is an awesome opportunity to wheel with some of the best, challenge your own abilities and see what your FJ can really do. THIS IS NOT A RACE! This is a safe and well run event.
I hope to see many of you up there, you will not be dissapointed.
Thank you all-Bill
