Do you guys have any pictures of the track you set up? I live in Lewisburg and wouldn't mind checking it out sometime. Also if any of you guys have off road buggies/SCT/truggy I have a track at home that anyone is welcome to stop by and run for a while.

This is the course before I added a section. I added half again what you see here. Some of the guys have other rc cars and trucks. We are shooting for another rally on what is left of the snow course on 3/2/14. I'll post some current pics tomorrow.

Thanks, Dave

The rally course is set for Sunday 3/16. This will be a completely new rally, so bring your game face. This will prove to be a challenge for all. Very tight and technical. Sorry no pics. There will be several very shallow running water crossings, cliffs, ledges and elevation changes with a couple of ice patches for good measure. We will be meeting at:

15 Jerseytown Rd
Bloomsburg, PA 17815.

Once everyone who is coming arrives we take a very short drive to this virgin rally course. There will be no power or any other facilities. Be sure to bring field charging equipment.
