Lets wait and see once the roll call is done. I am not opposed to camping on the hill. HOWEVER, if we have a lot of people who are interested in spending Sat night we might not have enough room.

Lets wait until the last weekend in October and assess the situation and schedule things from there.

In scouts we did an event that you went out and looked for half a dozen colored wooden stakes. When you found a stake it had a number on it. You would use that number when you got back to the start and go to your clue station 1-6. When at the clue station you had 12 random clues to the other 5 stakes. Only two clues were good. the other 10 were fake. The clues the were good were the same color as the stake with the number.

So lets say the Red Stake had a number 3 on it and the check word of bear. You would have to come back to station 3 and only the red question/clues would be good. those 2 clues would be good for 2 other stakes maybe one clue to find the green stake and the other would be for the blue stake.

Each stake had it's own number and own color nothing was shared. Plus a check word on it to prove you found it. in our case the numbers could of been any number from 1-99 and the the code word would be things like Bobcat, wolf, bear etc. etc.

when the event starts each person is given a clue to one of the six stakes at the start. So all the people are not going to the same place at the same time. prevents people from following.

Another thing neat about the color stake and numbers is you could spot it from a little distance or hike past it etc. this made it harder for people to follow you for the next leg of you adventure.

With the 6 or more steaks out in the field each person had to come back to camp to get the next clue etc. so people at the camp site would be able to see what is going on.

Just a quick over view, it worked for scouts I'm sure it will work for Bajas

I am willing to lead a run to the end of the wash and back.. get these guys out of the Woops and into some smooth sand. we don't need to go into Wickenburg just stay in the wash. so the non street legal vehicles can participate...

As far as events go for the weekend I will have a night run to giveaway the lights. Probably not really a night run, but sometime around sunset or a little after. Lights will be required.

I will have an event sponsored by KMC wheels, one by lucas oil, one by RDC, one by mad media. The rest of the stuff I will have tickets and do some raffles throughout the day.

Contests will be simple. Some require a car and some do not. The non car ones will be kid friendly. Unfortunately, NONE of the sponsored gifts are kid age. Oh well on that.

I have lots of signage from sponsors, so the area will look pretty good once setup.

I figure Eric (AzBaja) can grill up some burgers for lunch (1:30 or so). WE WILL NEED VOLUNTEERS TO BRING ADDITIONAL ITEMS FOR LUNCH. Signup list to follow.

Contests would start at noon and go on throughout the day until sunset.

How does that sound?

Tinman,

I was talking with Eric (azbaja) he brought up a good point.. The starting line for all the events is going to be in the wash and people are going to want to camp and be at the starting line.. If we camp anywhere else we will be dividing the event.. After thinking about it,,, I'm not sure that that would be a good idea..



RED is last years area and the yellow is the camping area up top. I do not know how many people will be camping. The yellow area might be too small. At the end of the month we can evaluate.

Dalton's wash run sounds like fun, he may have to pull me out of the sand again.

It was close to 40 scouts or so. sent out in waves. Every 5 minuts are so the next set of six scouts was sent out and your time was based on the time you left. I'm thinking we do not have to do that. I'm thinking around 15 to 20 drivers. but if more shows up we can do time space start. If so then we need to have a time keeper or judge and I think that would be a good idea anyway.

We did this over 35 years ago when I was a scout, so the entire rule book is fuzzy but I'm doing a basic set of rules that should work with cars. It does not sound that hard but the fact that it is a shuttle and you have to come back to home base for your next clue will add lots of time to the run. You set the stakes a mile out or more. You end up running over 12 miles just to finish and you still have to find the stake and get the clues and come back to base and use your clue to find the next stake etc. It will also be fun for people tht watch as the driver has to come back to base and you can get an idea of were the driver is each time he/she comes back to home base.

The trick is to figure out the method used for the location of the stakes. We did back with a map and compass. but it can be done other ways too.

WATCH ME! VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO


GOOD NEWS and BAD:

Good news - a large box from Dezert People showed up today FULL of DVDs to give away along with a bunch of RDC stickers.

Bad news - my truck will be completely full of stuff to give away and I won't have any room for BEER!

We have:

hats, lights, banners, t-shirts, DVDs, stickers, oil, flash lights, signed posters, beer coozies... I will be meeting with Joe Chirco and he promised a few things for the weekend.

Probably forgetting a thing or two. But we are set for a great weekend.

AzBaja, JWHRacing and DirtJunkie - I need you to confirm with me that you received my PM and are cool with everything noted.
