Default GPMRA Rock Crawlers

I wanted to start this thread to bring together anyone and everyone in the Grande Prairie area that is interested in our new Crawler course we are building at the track. I want to get as many people together as we can for some fun, challenging and entertaining crawling. I want this to start with simple and fun challenges in mind, keeping the conpetition simple and let everyone, no matter what their skill or vehicle, to come together. I have revised the official Rock Crawler rules to allow ALL types of trucks to compete in 3 simple categories. I fell this is the simplest way to get everyone out together, we will be revising the rules in the future to keep things more ballanced as lots of guys are running 4 wheel steer and dig units but not everyone is at that level. Lets have some fun a crawl!

Default First Comp

I am hoping to host a small fun competition around the end of May. THE BACKYARD BUNGLE! I have slowly been building a rock pile in the yard and would love to get some people together to have a fun game of Horse in the pile. let me know who may be interested and I can see how many people we can fit in the yard!

Not a problem. I have a truck and if we can get the guys we will set up a time and place to meet to gather some rock. I hope to set up a small scale area if there is enough interest to keep an eye out on this forum for the info.
