Our very own LandCruiserSteve will be hosting an "Introduction To Off-Road Driving" workshop specifically designed for novice and first-time off-roaders attending the FJ Summit this year. This workshop will be the perfect precursor for newbies taking on the Ouray trail runs.
Steve not only oversees the 4x4/off-road training programs for federal, state and local government agencies throughout the country (out of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center), but he's also a Chief Instructor with the United 4-Wheel Drive Association.
Topics covered in this clinic will include basic 4x4 vehicle operation, proper transfer case usage, hill ascents/descents, obstacle negotiation, water crossings, off-camber/side-slope traversing, soft terrain driving, ground-spotting techniques and basic recovery techniques.
Due to the success and popularity of last year's classes at the Summit, we will be repeating the same class this year.
The class will take place on Wednesday, July 16th, 2008 at 1:00pm. (The exact location will be confirmed later, but it will likely take place in the Best Western Motel's meeting room.)
Class size will be limited to 25 participants per class.
PM me with your request to attend. Registration will be accepted on a "first-come / first-serve" basis.
Please include the following in your registration PM:
Forum user name of person attending?
Real name (first & last)?
Licensed driver? Yes / No
Any previous 4x4 / off-road driving experience? Yes / No
Once registration is completed, I'll be sending you a confirmation PM for your attendance. Looking forward to seeing you.
