Thanks for the advertising and I understand your concern. I will do my best to stay on GL4X4 so I can keep up with the questions.

Is there a link on the “Skool” main page to the park rules? Is there a pdf where all the rules are clearly stated?
There is not a PDF of the rules but on the JeepSkool General Discussion page there is a JeepSkool Rules thread (
There is also a event FAQ where more guidlines can be found (

Links to both of these can be found in all of the staff members signatures for ease of access.
You may also request a copy of the rules during Skooling.

Yes, all JeepSkool event attendees must be registered forum users. I have never discussed with Robocon why this is but I believe it would be safe to bet that it is in an effort to get every one on the site and reading the rules and 'contributing to the JeepSkool community'

Yes, would be at management's discretion as to when too much trail dammage would occur. Just to clarify, heavy equipment would usually need to be used to transport a very broken rig off of the trail not to un-stick a vehicle.

As far as I have ever seen, there are no other fees to be applied on stuck or broken rigs. Your entrance fee covers you being in the park from opening on Saturday till 11 pm on Saturday and then again, from opening on Sunday till 9 PM on Sunday. You are more than welcome to camp, but there is to be no wheeling past 11.

If your rig breaks down on the trail and is unable to drive home, you are welcome to keep it in the LOCKED factory for up to 24 hours so that you can return with a trailer and retrieve it.

Hope that helps and feel free to ask if you need further clarification.
