Default Fall Crawl Capreol

Please post up any available weekends in October to schedule a comp. So far it is looking like the 19 &20th.

We made a lot of improvements to the courses and gave a few more in store before fall.

As well, Im going to put $500 of my own money on that wall!!!
there will be some stipulations to it, 3attempts with no adding material to ir as an aid, than 3 attempts with the addition of rocks at the bottom... First one up takes the cash!

I attempted it a couple times and didnt get far at all.

Thanks,
Sam

I can't say if I could make it for sure or not, but that seems like a possible weekend, and gives a little bit of time for repairs after Loonie.

Its shaping up well.

We have opened a side by side class, Stock and Mod are showing over a dozen competitors so far, Unlimited has a few confirmed and another 6 or so on the fence pending more competition in that class.

the unlimited class will have a crawl consisting of 2 stages with 3 gates and a bonus on each, than a shootout between the leaders as well as optional short course race and a crack at the "Wall" for a chance to take $500 of my money

There is an entry fee of $50/ class and $50 for the short course race, and entry into either will get you a shot at the wall, no extra charge!


So come out!

Sam

Here is a sample video of the short course race from last year.

We have made some changes to the course, the big tech section closest to the camera man is a bit bigger now.
