Default Oct. 10th - Morrice Lions Club Mud Bog / Obstacle Course

Real World Wheelers is again hosting the 2nd annual End Of Season Bash Mud Bog and Obstacle Course at the Lions Club park in Morrice, Mi. 48857

180' x 20' comp style mud pit (its deep and nasty, better bring your big tires and lots of hp)

approx 180' long rock crawl - we made some changes to it this time around, to make it more difficult, moved some stuff around, added bigger piles, deeper holes, and a hill in the middle

large hill with several access points, ravine through the top, and a few stair steps to try to crawl up...this hill looks like it will be a blast to wheel on!

tire crawl built with large heavy equipment tires, stacked and staked in various positions, pyramids, and some partially buried



This is being run as two seperate events, the mud bog and the obstacle course. You can enter either, or both events. There will be trophies awarded for the top 3 places in each event (6 trophies)

Everything was built with safety in mind, and to make it accessible to all levels of rigs, so there is something for everyone to play on, from stockers to fully built rigs.

There will also be a 7th trophy awarded for spectators choice, which will be judged based on a food drive. The drivers name/number will be posted on a table, and anyone can donate non perishable food items by placing them in front of the name of the driver they want to win. The driver who has the highest item count wins the trophy. Yes, you can vote for yourself, so bring a couple cases of canned goods and win a trophy!



as always, this is FREE TO WHEEL, FREE TO WATCH!!!


Michigan Open Carry will also be there, handing out literature and answering any questions you may have about your rights to carry a sidearm.

The Lions Club will be selling bbq chicken, drinks, and other food items, along with raffle tickets to win a brand new shotgun (details on the gun tomorow).

will post pics of the course within the next few days







p.s. if there is anyone local who would like to come out and play for a few hours, please PM me...I would like to have someone drive over the hill to pack some of the dirt down some more, and it seems everyone in my crew has dead trucks at the moment.

Sorta makes me wish I had the Metro back. My Audi 4000s quattro isn't that great with the rocks.

its a single pit, so score will be time based...not running seperate classes since its a free event and no cash payout, only trophies will be awarded...its more of a fun event then a money making proposition..we will run the order based on tire size, smaller tires run first, largest tires run last

this event is all about helping the local Lions Club raise money to help keep thier park open, which is done through food sales and donations...it is completely free to enter the event, and free to watch


I will be out there shortly (in the rain) and will be taking pics then
