mrtoddb Ty, thought you did a great job! Rick organized it, you advertised it. Sorry it went down like this. I wouldn't have known about it were it not for your info. Great job by all, no need for drama and wadded up panties.

vbtj You the man Ty and I look forward to you and Andy's event in Cass at Byrd's.

slacker 24/7 Truth be told Ty, there may not have been a Gorilla run without you and several of the crawlers , you all worked your butts off.. and it certainly wouldnt have been near the event it turned out to be without the work you guys put into it all..I was to far up the trail and missed alot of the rock action, so for me, the bounty hill made the event in my opinion... glad you were able to get the SE guys to come... it wouldnt have been the same without them... sounds like some folks got butt hurt because they didnt wind up more in the spotlight...

sureshot40sw maybe Muns should bring his own volunteers next year... if it wasn't for Ty, I wouldn't have even known about it... the ONLY promoting that I saw was from Ty and the Arkansas Crawlers...

Ty shouldn't have to apologize for anything...


just saying

BTRFLZ7463 that sucks. it was a great event! i had lots of fun racing, and lots of fun watching the bounty hill. you did a great job promoting the event. i do not think that the bounty hill took anything away from the race, it made for some great entertainment after a long day!

sorry to hear about the article, but not much else you could have done. All the sponsors for the race deserve their name to be out there in full force. They stepped up and made this race happen. i hope this doesn't discourage any of them to not step up next year.

linked&bobbed_S10 Thank you Ty for providing info on this event.
03-29-2012 08:55 AM
95steel So you work your tail off to help promote a great event, then get yelled at for helping to promote a great event....

TURNEROFFROAD I recieved a phone call Wed. 03/28/2012 from Rick Muns -AlphaGorilla- owner of the Gorilla Run asking me to publicly apologize for taking any credit or claiming any involvement in the Gorilla Run that was held on Feb. 17-18 @ Superlift ORV Park in Hot Springs AR.

My involvement with the Gorilla Run event began after I called and offered Rick Muns my assistance in posting up this event on the Arkansas Crawlers, Hardline Crawlers, and Pirate4x4 forums. Most of the Competitors sent me their information and I then added them to my thread which listed all of the Competitors.

As far as my involvement with the Bounty Hill, Heath Day and I went to Superlift over the Christmas Holiday to cut the hill. It was my idea to go 'cut' a hill specifically for the purpose of adding some Pizazz to the event which I felt would be a good thing. Inside a month from the event I recieved a phone call from Rick Muns and his Partner advising me the the Bounty Hill would be 'cabled off' and would NOT be run as it was begininning to take the focus away from the main competition event @ Greg's Rocks (the comp course). After a long intense meeting Rick Muns agreeded to allow the Bounty Hill to be run as long as it didn't overshaddow the Comp.

After the Hugely successful First Annual Gorilla Run, I was interviewed for an article covering the Event as pertaining to the Bounty Hill. During the interview I was told that the other details had been gotten from someone else and that the Reporter wanted my take on the Bounty Hill as well as the Arkansas Crawler involvement in the whole matter. I smiply answered the questions ask of me, no more...no less

When the article was published, it quickly became apparent that all of the Sponsors names and information wasn't gathered accurately from the source it was obtained from. While I had absolutely no hand in providing this information I am sorry that the Sponsor advertising dollars were not Maximized to the fullest.

Here is a link to the article that is referenced above-
http://www.off-road.com/trails-event...ark-53411.html

In short, if anyone feels that I misrepresented the Gorilla Run, the Bounty Hill or any Sponsor ( even though I wasn't the provider of the sponsor list) I want to say I am sorry. I felt I was promoting a great event, and at the time was glad to be a part of it.


Sincerely
Ty Turner-President of the Arkansas Crawlers

JESUS ROCKS
