Default 30 acre off road park,July 1 st

We are going to open our private off road park for the day on Sunday July 1st. Opening a 9 am. This will be for donations so we can keep working on the park and add more things. It is far from complete but is still alot of fun. Right now there is an obstacle course, a concete stair step, and the ravine. If we get enough people interested then we will haul water in to make the are slippery, and make the mud bog alot better.

If you try the ravine you will get muddy. It is not a mud run, but you will get muddy. The water will make the other courses harder and more fun. If we get a confirmed count of 10 rigs we will haul in water. Again this is for donations and we will be having another outing this year. This is also a sneak peak for those thinking of coming the the Club Challange. So please mark you calenders and come join the fun.

Directions: From us 31, Hart exit, Go east to Oceana drive, Go north to Harrison Road, Go west about 1/2 mile t drive on north side of road. Long drive that goes back to field. Park on top of hill.

If there are any questions just ask.
Thanks
Collin

Private Off-Road Park? I'm a little stupid, please elaborate on a 'private' off-road park. Is this something that your club owns? Private land? How does that work?

Oh, and any pictures of this park?

there is pictures floating around. fabricator just made some new hills 2 weeks ago. the only one to go over the concrete stairs. i believe he has 3 more hills to name. the one he flipped his buggy on is now bracken drive.. there is easy stuff to really hard, on the property. and yes it is private property and you need to sign a waiver before you drive.

I have the rest of the week off so im going to get some pics up if i can figure it out. This is private property and as erin stated you need to sign a waiver to play. NO big deal just a formality. Any more questions just ask. This is private property, It is leased for a buddys father. Fun is always allowed but stupid is not.

You are right, I can still push the throttle with my good leg, but that @#$% cast keeps getting stuck under the break pedal.
Who wants to ride with me?
