That looked like a lot of fun but why have an obstacle that no one can go over? Seems like an oversight but otherwise I would love to run a course like that.

Good job guys!!!!

Good job guys!!!!
It was doable, pre-mud...I think the mud and 47° angle were kinda overlooked. But it was fun trying.
Bummed I didn't get to give it a better shot...
Ah well..it was still the most fun I've had in a long time!

The mud was definitely the game changer for that cement slab...I was 3rd in c class and it was slick as snot when I hit it...I can't imagine after half dozen more.

The mud wasn't a consideration when it was set up. It was doable early on, but like with events in the past, you don't want Obstacles too easy so everyone can one shot it, so you need to try to make them a happy medium, guess we stayed to the more difficult side.

As a matter of fact, we didn't want any mud in the course, but when the mud hole was getting wetted down, the hose was leaking and filled our birm on the corner.

Still a great event by what I saw. Hope this is a growing trend here in Michigan.

That last obstacle would have been a blast to drive dry, I know you guys didn't plan on that dug out berm filling with water...sh*t happens, we all had fun anyway. The A class guys made a good show of it, and thanks for all the hard work to all the guys who helped make this happen.

I was second to go in the buggy class or "a" class. On my third attempt when the ring gear let go, I also blew my oil filter and dumped atleast 2 QTS on that slab . That's the burst of steam at the end.
