I saw the green buggy they had the that was part scout. Never saw it on the lid. It was hard to get points cause they weren't post continously throughout the day. Over all there were alot of people timing out at the beginning of the day.

Hey Krusty, sorry you couldnt make it in:( that sux!
ya missed a bitchen BBQ :D rock dog style ;)
the wheeling was great! cool watching other people fu** their rigs up :D. They really had no idea they would have this kinda turn out. they only had 8 porta pottys:eek: I had to pinch a fat yam near the end of the day and all the shitters where filled to just under the rim:barf: I have never seen them topped off like that! all out of paper and ass gaskets.

There was 3 of us who video taped it. when we edit it all into one tape we will send one your way.

here is a few pics 4 ya :beer:
Dang sorry I missed the gig, Len. Not being there to do my fair share of food consumption sucks big time - letting the team down, and all:D Thanks for posting the pics.

Note to Rich for next year - more shitters and supplies, and a permit for more people! Sounds like Bob Roggy did a kick ass job of designing the course too, from the reports I've been hearing:nuke:

I had never been to one of these events before so I didn't really know what to expect. I had a good time and thought that the courses were well laid out and having everything close together and down in the gulley worked well because you could see a lot of action. As others have said I think that they were overwhelmed by the number of people and there was some confusion on courses things like that. Nothing shocking considering this is the first time this event has been held. I am suprised that no one was injured too because a lot of competitors came out of the gulley hard and fast.

There was a lot of breakage and a LOT of rollovers. Troy Muse, Kevin Carey, Brutus, and Alan from Crawltec were all out of the comp before too long. Mike S broke a knuckle, but that was rather late in the day.

I thought that the back-halfed FJ-40 that Bob Roggy built was the coolest rig there. It was SUPER sano. Alan's Cummins powered rig was cool too (if he didn't have fuel problems...) along with Grady's buggy, Mike Shaffer's Sami buggy, the Tri-County jeep (also super clean, every detail was addressed), and Jake's long wheelbase Samurai. That is just the tip of the iceberg too, there were so many trick vehicles. (You know that there are a lot of cool rigs when you don't even mention the SNORT buggies or the Sniper)

Chris Durham and Stacy Breckenridge were the crowd favorites though. Both of them made liberal use of the skinny pedal. :D

Just got back home

Well I just got back home from a kick ass comp. I had to get out after running 4 courses dues to breakage. I managed to bend both my rear 1/4 ellip leafs, both my front springs to the point of breakage, my front spring plate bolts stripped out of the housing on my front 60. I managed to roll 3 different times, but I drove out of 2 of them. The comps were tight and sweet. Difinitly not built for a fullsize rig like mine. Pics to follow soon
