Who would be interested in a 4x4 Rally in the next month or 2? (We need something fun to do while the Mountains are getting snowed on.)

There are alot of details to work out, but I'd like feedback on the following.

How about a Saturday, in January? Dates??

Who wants in?


Kurt will be assisting with this, so feel free to ask either of us your questions......

Spence: Location, 5mile pass

Last years events included the challenge course (NO ONE could make it up one, no, make that two of the hills!), blindfold course, barrel racing (oh YEAH!!), and slow hill climb. It's a blast!

I have a one minute MPEG (actually it's a quicktime video) of last years event;if someone wants to provide a place to 'put' the video and link it to this page, I'll email it to you.

(dont know when the site will be up, ask the guy in charge!)

Email that MPEG to me, I'll post it!

Brett showed me those challenge hills a few weeks ago when we ran Rattlesnake. I could barely make it up on of those hills when it was dry! There's no way in hell you could do it in the snow!

Greg,
I didn't mean to rain on your parade. If you want to do a rally of some kind by all means DO IT!

I was trying to convince Todd to do the U4WDA rally next year a little differently....make it into a mini safari triathalon! Not only do you have to follow a timed course, but you also have skill courses to complete. For example: You get to a broken down Toyota :-) and you have to figure out why it won't start. Then you come to a place where there is an injured person and have to do first aid. Then you have to do a four tire rotation with only the tools you have onboard and/or what you can find in the surrounding area. Then you get to the lake and have a canoe race across it, around a floating marker and back........the possiblilities are endless.

Rain? Rain makes wheelin better! Bring on the Rain!!

I was just rethinking when we could do a Rally, since we're considering the same Time-frame, no biggie though.

Mabey I could Tow my non-running Toyota out there for the U4WDA Rally and have everyone pitch in with a Motor Swap!! :p

So you guys still down for a second rally??? Lets do it in February or the end of Jan....Is the U4WDA an actual timed Rally? or just a skill course and stuff like that.

Greg

Feburary sounds good...... What date? Lets do a Saturday.

cruiseroutfit

I can arrange it for just about any Saturday. Should be fairly simple to run the thing but I will need some help organizing it as well as controlling the start and finish line. No problemo with all the dudes around here....lets just play it by ear until the first of the year and then we can start arranging a good date. If someone wants to recommend a good saturday in Feb. that most people agree on, do it :D
