It looks like we will have some good stuff for the raffle this year so make sure you get your raffle tickets available at the registration booth. Items include lift kits, tires and winches along with vendor gift certificates. RB

The Master driver courses are almost finished! You will have a choice of two different wrist bands. The first cost $10 and get's you into the mud bog or the stocker run. The second one cost $20 and get's you into any of the 4 available runs.
We have the mud bog again this year as a separate run all by it's self. You can play there all afternoon if you wish. We have a stocker run that any 4x4 can run and will be a great trail for you first timers! We also have the main course which offers wild to mild with bypasses around the hard stuff. Then mostly new this year is Chadville. You will need to pass inspection to enter. Mandatory will be 35" tires, one working locker but I highly suggest 2. A working winch, and tow points front and rear. There are NO bypasses and it's do or die once your in. This is not for people who don't like body damage. The trail is tight and anyone over 100" wheel base is going to have trouble. There are two small rock piles, one wood chip pile, Many large log crossings, 3 pit's, a culvert crossing, a sand hill, one mean wood staircase, a tire pit and many a sharp turn involved. Once everyone who want's to run it is finished we may entertain some smaller tired jeeps that have a bigger buddy help them.

Let's hit a 1000 Jeep's this year! RB

You guys going to have a way to get the broken rigs out of the way this year?
Having that broken rig in the middle of the best part was a disappointment last year.
Looking forward to the Blessing again!!!

I was back in Chadville all day so I'm not positive but there should have been a hydro hoe to remove any broken jeeps from the rocks. If it's the jeep I remember it had like 31" tires and was warned that it was too hard for his jeep and he did it anyway. Can't fix stupid. I know, been there done that. LOL With 4 runs it shouldn't be as big a deal if it happens again. RB
