4th Annual 100s in the Hills August 1-3, 2014 Ouray, Colorado

I know this isn't the solid-axle hardcore event that some of you crave, but for us IFS 100 Series owners, this is a great event. All the pink panty and Starbucks jokes aside, Jonathan, Chris, Josh and I put a lot of hard work into making this event what it is and we're proud of what it's become.

Although this isn't technically a Rising Sun Event, it's heavy with Rising Sun involvement. We will be flying the Rising Sun banner proudly at camp again this year. If you're a 100 Series owner (or passenger) we would love for you to join us.

We run multiple trails each day ranging from scenic stock-friendly to pucker factor shelf roads. And yes, Poughkeepsie Gulch and Black Bear are included too. :cool:

Well, I've got me a 100 now, and need to make it down to that area. Sounds like a great excuse. I've still got the 40 for when the panties get uncomfortable.

Suggestion: You could make it a TLCA Limited Event and get TLCA insurance and advertising...

Could I come if I brought both a 40 and a 60?

Absolutely, you'll need to just leave them both in camp while we're out on the trail. ;) I'd be more than happy to let you drive the 100 for a day. It might make a believer out of you....

This really is a very fun event, even though its very restricted to just the 100 Series platform. The whole idea is to keep it free and laid back. Because its grown so fast, we are forced to limit the number of 100s in attendance this year.

The idea of making it a TLCA sanctioned event has been discussed. Once we start paying for insurance plus all the other costs already involved, it's no longer possible to keep it free. We received sponsor money last year that basically covered all our costs. We even sourced the artwork and tshirt printing out to RS members. It's humbling to see what this has become. People plan their summer vacations around the event and spend hard earned money on vehicle upgrades prior to coming. Naturally, there are some first timers on the trail with us everyday and its fantastic to show them what Colorado is all about. Not to mention things like TLCA, Rising Sun, responsible offroading and general 100 Series knowledge. We had 100s from Virginia to California in attendance. Sponsors from North Carolina to Washington. Free stuff galore!

Thanks for the early notice. I'll see what we can do to get it on the schedule this year.

Ouray/Telluride twice in the summer is never a bad thing, count me in!
