Talking Adventure Offroad Challenge

This is the new link for details on the HRC Challenge.

Sorry I accidentally deleted the whole post rather than just a few comments when trying to remove potential details.
Gunny, Steve, and a few others had a great posts in it that I wanted to keep.
I think I have captured the Key points.

At the Dec meeting will have more details.

But for now here is what we know.

Still need 2 more volunteers to help design / judge

This is a CLUB ONLY EVENT.

There will be a Trophy with winners name on it that gets updated every year.

Contestants will not know challenges until time of event.
I promise they will be fun for everyone.

Points and judging
Still working details but there will be:
Some timed events
Some technical events
Some Bonus points
Some penalty points (including failing to complete a challenge)

Will be designed for all vehicles and sizes.
Mandatory equipment: (more may be added as needed)
Fire extinguisher
Jack
First aid kit
Seat belts

Recommended equipment:
Phone with Camera
Winch
Lunch food
HINT: You may bring ANYTHING that you think would help you in the challenges.

Dates:
I will be contacting the Cove this week to look at Dates an options.
2 day event held at Cove Campground in Gore Va.

There will be a max of 10 teams and 2 standby.
7 spots first come first serve
3 spots will be lottery
There will be 2 stand by spots in case a team can't make it last minute.

All teams will consist of
a street legal 4 wheel drive rig (licensed and tagged)
A driver (must be club member)
A spotter (can be anyone, Choose wisely)

Please note: this is an Adventure Challenge and as such we aim to make you have to think outside the box to accomplish each challenge mostly off-road.

There will be some time to party at the end.

I'm glad there is some good interest in this...

Something different that we can all enjoy regardless of vehicle capability.

might need to be able to do a few push ups or paddle a boat though....

Great idea! Not sure what the other ideas for the challenges were but I have a few ideas as well. I can post here or share privately if preferred.

Thank you but hold that Thought.

We will need help for weekend of event but I think we are down to just needing 1 more person on the detail design side.

Everyone that volunteers to work the Design will be required to resign from taking part as a team and sharing information with the teams.

Just want to make sure that all Participants are given a fair chance. (no pre-help.)

Gunny has more information to give Wed night.
