Rule ' Best time. Pen cones 15 seconds each; 5 minutes to run, Class 2 and 3 can have a spotter in the rough section. Simple easy ' Class 1 will run a shorter course than 2 and 3. Class 2 and 3 will have a rough section they will have to navigate.

This should be very doable on the stock to 33 course for the first timer. The mod course will be set to challenge but finishable as well. and If we can get a good show up some decent money for this type of show.

Just show up. event stats at noon. You can go on the Gladwin fair face book for spect fee.

I have passed the event back to the fair grounds due to Business reasons . I have put my fee into the pay out so the drivers can have a good pay back. I will donate my time to help them still though. I have still designed the course and will be there for the tech -in and drivers meeting. Should be a good time for the first event like this here. The Fair starts this weekend so there with luck will be plenty of fans in the stands.

Had a fun day at this comp, would have been nice to have more competitors...
The Gladwin Fair group seem to be super workable people willing to help support us wheelers- well organized and from what I can see definitely going to bump up the advertising and possibly combine with other fair events to grow the interest of the spectators in this area. Definitely recommend both large and small rig wheelers to try this next year thanks Ron for all your efforts in making this happen

As always i do it for all of you. As you seen today with my contribution to the pay back. With some better longer term planning ,team work and the 4wd community next tough Truck Comp at Gladwin should be added to your event list.
Thanks Becky and Alice for coming so far for this event. Congrats on the win Alice and to Becky for wiping the field with Jeff. Also Ranger Scott Killingbeck for his win in the smaller class, Also the great airial show from Josh Dodson , We all know now XJ's can FLY

If they could put together a series, it would be worth building a small beater unit just to air out and flog at these events! Would have been real cool with more rigs!
