_____________________________________________________

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!! We're having a rock crawl challenge at the OHV Expo on April 14th and 15th at the National Western Complex.
COHVCO has joined forces with CoA4WDCI to put on a rock crawl competition at this years OHV Expo. In order to participate, you must be a paid member of a club that is a member of the CoA4WDCI no later than February 15th, 2007. OR you can become a paid Associate Member of CoA4WDCI by February 15th, 2007.
How it works:
Each club has the option to choose one vehicle/driver combo to compete in the Super Stock Class, and one vehicle/driver combo to compete in the Super Modified Class, totaling two vehicles at the event per club. (Drivers are allowed to have spotters.) Associate Members of CoA4WDCI will have 2 participants chosen from its membership. Clubs will determine how the participants for their club are chosen. Club President or Vice President will need to contact Valerie Douglas with COHVCO (vdouglas@cohvco.org) to add the clubs participant names to the entry list and receive an entry form and waivers to be filled out and returned to her.
Participants are expected to compete both Saturday and Sunday and they are expected to be at the drivers meeting. (Note to participants: Only drivers and spotters are allowed in through the back gate, family members and friends must pay to go to the Expo.) Participants will drive two courses. The points system is on the attached PDF. We will be scoring this similar to golf: the lower the score, the higher your ranking. Participants exceeding +40 points have been considered to "point out" of a course. See the attached for full details. This event is purely volunteer and you will not be compensated for fuel, time, money or damage to your vehicle.
Club participants are encouraged to bring their club banners and logos so they can be hung around the arena to promote your club.
The PRIZE:
First place for each class:
Not only will you be crowed champion of your class for first place, but you'll also get an absolutely amazing traveling trophy that will be awarded each year to the winner. 2007 is the inaugural year, so you want to be the first to win and go down in the history books!
Second through fifth place will also be awarded great prizes.

As long as you put a Toyota grille on it!

The Chili, I don't think, will qualify- the frame isn't stock (SAS) and the wheelbase is very very close to +3". Plus I hear the owner is a wuss who doesn't want to hurt his truck.

You get me a bezel, and I'll put it on! Even if I have to install it with baling wire!

39.25" wide at outermost edge

10" high, top to bottom

29.25" center to center on the headlites....

I think an FJ40 bezel might fit on the Gnewt!

bill, just cause your sas doesn't mean you don't qualify. when they talk about frame mods, they are talking tubed frames.

as for your being a puss, i can't help that :lmao:

we talked at the central district meeting about a third class also, for vehicles that only have one locker since even the stock class requires two lockers right now and that eliminates a lot of people.

rising sun will be eligible to send one person for the stock class and one for modified.

I would volunteer if I have my lift and tires by then. Not sure if I will have it all done by then. Planning on getting my hands on the lift sometime during the first week of february, Bday present to myself. I plan on putting it on ASAP but will need to recruit some help, my welding skills are lacking a little.

As for tires, it will depend on the funds. I plan on 35-37 mudders but??? I have some 39x18x15's that I need to get rid of so.................

If anyone wants to volunteer their help to get the lift done LMK, I'll post later also when I actually have the lift in hand.

you two are both better candidates. :bowdown:

I don't know if I will have welded on the rest of my protection and rear winch by then.. I can only work outside on the truck, as it won't fit in the studio/shop because of height.
