2011 Mid-Atlantic Rover Rally Sept 29-Oct 2

It's that time again! We've been very busy cutting new trails to accommodate those that wanted to wheel more last year. Trails have been expanded by +100%. There are some serious hill climbs, switch backs and off camber trails that will challenge the experienced driver. We've also cut trails over at T&T Motorsports with some creek crossings that will certainly get thicker and more difficult as the day goes by. Lastly, we have even more trails over at Esmont just a few miles aways! This is the second year at Willow Hill Farm and we're making the effort to give everyone more of what they've come to expect from MAR. Don't miss out. Early registration ends 9/19. Visit us at www.roav.org for more info. http://www.roav.org/ForumsPro/viewto...3870.html#3870

registrations are @ 100 trucks with 9 days to go. Looks like there should be 150-200 trucks easily.

Online closes next Monday. Onsite won't be a problem if you procrastinate. Many wait till the week of the event to see what the weather is going to be like. Order event shirts now if you want them.

I liked the spot i was in last year. Back by the fence off to the left when you come in. Cgalpin, 130tdi, Ron, among other list members were there as well. Jorge are you coming down with the NJLR crew?

We had thunderstorms and pouring rain for 3 hours last night. The weather might be nice when you all get here, but the ground is going to be muddy from almost 2 weeks of rain.

Cool- that's prety much a perfect scenario. I had asked the people that run the Hatton Ferry to have it open Friday and Saturday and the guy was somewhat of a jerk and said it would be water level dependant. Sounds like thats resolved.

River is at normal level. The rain has been constant, but slow so the grounds soaks it up. The river hasn't even been muddy once in the last 2 weeks yet we keep getting lots of rain.

I wouldn't go near the Hatton Ferry for something like this. You'll spend an hour trying to cross when you could have driven to the place in 10 minutes. I realize there is a "cool" factor, but I would rather have the trail time.

Lol, I was trying to be nice.

At least in the summer there is usually 100+ girls in bathing suits setting off for a day of tubing. Some you want to see in a bikini, some you don't....
