I need two get a count on how many guys that want to help out for a few hours then play for few hours. This next Saturday May 8 2010 We need to pickup the front gate area. and put a few new fence post in .We have a post hole digger on the tractor. So it should not be to bad. Please call me if you can.Gordy 269-832-5266 or Scotty at 269-924-6838Thanks Guys.And if you want to help out the day of the mud bog let me know also? Here are some pics of the mudbog, we are making it so you should be able to make it threw. We donít want to be pulling trucks and jeeps out all day long but we will im sure. Itís going to be a timed event. Three different classesí sizes 32 to 35 an 36 to 38 and 39and Bigger.Ive made so itís not to hard. But there are some 4 foot deep holes some where out there?They looked like a river when we were digging them? The water table is at about 3 feet.Im sure later in the day it will be harder to get threw.Understand that this is are first mudbog we have done.But we have talked to some guys that have done alot of events like this. So it should be good.To enter the event it will cost$25.00 a per truck and $5.00 per person, kids free from 1yrs to 10yrs
NO ALCOHOL AT ALL..Sorry to much liability...We will start o fill the mudpit this week ,were gonna add a little clay to it.Thanks Michigan Jeep Militia

You say you talked to one neighbor, I would suggest talking to the township before you do much more. I have been involved with two different parks doing this same thing (subpoenaed to court multiple times for one) and an unrelated business going through the same thing. The township or neighbors may say its fine and they can't wait, but once you do all the hardwork and then they say no, you have no paperwork showing it's ok.

I am not trying to stop you from opening this, I would love it and it is the closest thing to me. I just want you to know it's not as easy as making some trails and getting an ok from a neighbor. As soon as you get trucks out there, all of a sudden "neighbors" miles away say they can here you and the dust is killing their children, and no matter how much they lie, they often win.

I sure you you get approved and open soon, I will definitely head out there as soon as you open to the public. Good luck

My family's small business was also given the "ok" from the Township, but not on paper. They told us "sure, go ahead. It won't be a problem". Well when a neighbor (half mile away) complained because we had a few cars in our driveway (which is 400 feet long in the country, it caused no problems) they decided to shut us down.
Same with another offroad park, they were told it would be ok but when a neighbor (actually a few houses down which was over half a mile) complained, they went into a long court battle and ended up getting shut down.

I'm just trying to let you know how important it is to do it correctly. Also, "having friends over" will still get you in trouble, even if they don't pay to get in.
