Robesonia Trials November 1-2

ROVERS club will hold their annual Fall trial event in Robesonia, PA.

This year we will be trying a new format with our normal event on Saturday for experienced trialers and a beginner event on Sunday.

We will offer camping Friday and Saturday with a cookout Saturday night.

Come Saturday and watch the event to learn the rules, then try for yourself on Sunday or if you think you have the skill just go for it.

For anyone that has never competed in a trials event this is a skill challenge. There are normally 6-12 sections that have 10 sets of canes per section. You must drive the section and avoid striking the canes. They are numbered 10-1 as you go through the section. Hit the first set and you are earn 10 points, hit the last set and you earn one point. The goal is to have the lowest score possible. As mentioned this a test of skill and thought.

More information can be found at our forum


Both events are limited to 24 trucks (12 trucks will do half the sections while 12 do the 2nd half). Admission price is $28 and we are working on a discount rate for competing both days (For instance I may do the first day and my wife might do the second day, discount price for one truck, two drivers).

Prizes will be awarded as well as a raffle and 50/50. Lunch is included.

SOMEDAY, I'm going to make this. It looks like great fun but is the same weekend as Guy Fawkes which is only 40 minutes from me.

I have not been to any kind of event yet since I have owned my 83 classic, so maybe I'll try to make this one.
It will be a good opprotunity to meet some of you guys.
That's if I can get some tie rod ends put on in time.
Is this like a rock crawling event?

The terrain is rocky but a stock truck can handle most of the course. If you have any kind of lift damage is rare but possible.



Tough to see the canes but most sections are of a techincal nature. Setting up the proper line to get from A to B without hitting a cane.



In the one above you can see the canes in the beginning.

O.K. thanks for the videos, I have 34" S.S. TSL's and OME HD in front and MED's IN the rear.
I'm just not trusting my tie rod ends.
I'm gonna try to move my steer... staba... to the front like the D-90's , I just have to find the differently threaded tie rod ends that they are telling me the older RR's used.

When would be the latest you'd need on that truck count?

We rarely fill up so the day of would probably be fine. Just keep checking the ROVERS forum.
