I'm home finally. The MCR went very well. The courses were cool and everyone had fun watching people go through them. Marlin finally made it, he was up untill 4am putting in a dual case kit in a Tacoma and then heading to the rubicon, he stopped for a bit in Stockton to get some rest before he continued on. The BBQ was really good and the actual BBQ was on a toyota rear end with some lift springs!!! The raffle was what I called AWSOME!!!!!!! The grand prize, was actually two grand prizes, two ARB lockers with compresser. Then also there was a twin stick, some highlifts, tools, shirts, hats, gift certificates, a Marlin complete hy-steer kit and other stuff I can't think of off the top of my head. Marlin had some shifter knobs and shirts and stickers for sale. I can't wait until MCR 2!!!!!!!!

It was great. Raffle was great (I did not anything,Damn) Courses were set up great, my wife timed out on the two she tried and bent the rear D-shaft. Made for a nice smooth, slow ride home. I really think that Marlin was surprised how many people showed up!!!! Sign my wife and I up for the committee next year

Everyone had a problem with this boulder on the lower course (don't remember the #...) My wife did tell me that a Sammy spanked this course in like 2 minutes though...

Hey Guys!

   I am at the shop right now (4pm) and am just getting a chance to check out the BBS.

   I have over 150 pictures at home, and I will be putting them up on the webpage in the next couple of days.

   I counted 90 to 95 Marlin equipped trucks. I imagine over 200 people were their as some came in with 2wd cars. We (Marlin, wife, myself) did not make it in until lunch time, so I missed all of the obsticle course fun <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> But I was able to take a picture of each and every truck!

   I will be going home later tonight and I will post some pics up!

   Thanks to all who showed. I think this raffle was much better then TLCA's Rubithon raffle. No joke- We had 2 ARBs with compressors, 1 front or rear custom height Advance Off Road Research Orbit Eye spring set, 2 AOR dog bonez shackles, 1 Marlin Crawler HySteer, 1 Marlin Crawler Heavy Duty clutch (1100lbs) kit, 1 Marlin Crawler Super Heavy Duty clutch (1600 lbs/new item) kit, 2 highlift jacks, 1 Front Range Offroad twin stick with Marlin Crawler turtle knobs, 1 5.29:1 Diff Gear set with setup kit, another ring and pinion set gift certificate for any ring and pinion, $50 A/A gift certificate, I think a $50 gift certificate from North Valley 4x4, some toe straps, some flashlights, some shirts and hats, some turtle knobs, a new Sliding rear window, some genuine toyota parts, a Fire extinguisher set, and some other items I probably forgot about.

   Next year is going to be AWESOME! Sorry to all who could not make it!!

Regards,
BigMike

Damn I am so freakin tired after the MCR. It was a great event that took everything out of me. I didn't even really eat on Saturday because I was so busy running around. I had a few sodas and a couple ritz crackers, but that was it. It wasn't until Audra and the MHT gang popped me a grilled cheese sandwich on the fire late night at camp to give me back some energy.

The event went better than I could have imagined. Everyone I spoke to said they had a great time. I didn't expect the courses to be so damaging, but it was all fun for everyone. I woke up around 5:30 to start setting up the courses and check in area. We actually had 5 courses, but only 2 were run seriously. Course 3 was insane so no one but a couple guys gave it a run. Course 4 was easy, but no interest was generated there as course 2 had all the action.

A big thanks go out to everyone who helped out. We had an awesome showing where everyone helped out in some way. People volunteered left and right to help including cleaning up and taking out the trash. I did a huge sweep for trash and found a few thing here and there, but for how much action there was, people REALLY kept it clean. Great job.

It was great meeting all of you out there. The Slinky, Lucie, and I had a great time meeting you all. Look forward to wheeling with you guys again, just don't hate me if I forget who you are. I met too many people this weekend.

Also, keep an eye out in Sport Utility magazine. Lucie took all the pics for the magazine and I have to write the story. Not sure on their turn around, but I am sure it will get announced here when it comes out. I didn't get to snap one photo, so I am looking forward to seeing the pictures others took.

I can't wait until we get MCR2 going next year...... It will be next year right? hahahaha.... Not Marlin time right?

MCR was a blast!

I was one of the guys driving the Isuzu's that were in attandance. The courses looked fun but I had blown the power steering and was already fairly well tired from driving from the box without it. Anyway that's my story, and I didn't say anything about bragging my low hanging ass over a pile of rocks.

I met a few but mostly just looked at some very cool toys. Sam's flatty is about the most flexy thing I've ever seen and the white toy with the cooler mount in the stake bed was possibly my fav for looks, a very clean truck.

Oh yeah and thanks for those who gave me the push off the rocks before Dragon's Teeth(??) on the way out, like I said my arms were jelly and steering was more like playing pinball than a finesse activity.
