Rock Junction June 4-6. Show 7th

Post by BFYTW on Tue Apr 29, 2014 2:16 am

Just a heads up the Grand Mesa club out of grand junktown has their yearly event coming up. Wife and I at least always go for the show at fair grounds on Saturday. Smaller show but still a good day out.

We are planning on running all three days (given shaniquas rearend is done as promised) and being at the show Saturday as well. We've been at the show before, but never ran any trails. Should be a good time!

Got an update today that registration for Rock Junction is open to all. The trail runs are June 4-6 and cover everything from mild scenic runs to extreme. Cost is $50/ rig/ driver and $25 per passenger for all three days, which includes an evening meal at the conclusion of every day as I understand. Check out their Facebook page (Grand Mesa Jeep Club) for details and registration. I believe they're limited to a set number of rigs and have expect to sell out like before. If you can't make the runs , the off-road show on Saturday the 7th is a chance to come out and see some nice rides. Plenty of vendors, merchandise, raffles and door prizes. Hope we see some familiar faces!

I need to check my schedule, but I would like to get in on this.

Idk. I still haven't been emailed a list of what they are running when. They do this thing kind of jacked up. When u sign up and pay u are asked to pick 5 trails u would like to do out of the list of trails. Then at some point (I don't know when) they decide which trails and trail leaders for which days. Then apparently send out an email. Idk. Seems like it would be better to just do it the EJS way with set trails and a sign up for each.

I know they were having a planning meeting today and hopefully that was too priority. I'm also interested in knowing. This is the first year they've done the online registration, and I believe only the fourth or fifth year of the event, so it's still in its infancy and getting larger every year. I was out helping set up the obstacle course today also and it sounds like they've had some more vendors sign up including Poison Spyder. Should be a fairly decent little affair.

I talked with one of the organizers today to try and get a little clarification on registering. There's supposedly a box to check when you're registering as to what days you were able to run. And trails weren't set in stone yet due to the fact that they want to make sure they have enough interest to justify running them all. Somehow I guess you can get back into your registration to make changes, but I was unable to figure out how with what time I tried with earlier. Worst case, there is a link to send an email to organizers and they can help get it reconciled. Hopefully you also got the email this evening saying they would have trails decided on by weeks end.

Ok I am registered and I will be there Friday the 6th, I put 21 road as my first choice so hopefully it works out... Not to happy about paying to go out on a free trail, but I know the money supports the area trails and the cause. Last big event I went to was Tierra Del Sol in Southern CA and that was a blast, looking forward to this!

BFYTW,

When are you heading over? Are you going Thursday, or just driving over Friday morning? If you are headed over Friday morning let me know if you want to meet up in Silt and head over together.

Yeah I'm going early Friday morning. We can meet up down at the Kum&go and head over together!
What time? I just got an email update but haven't read it to see when the groups head out.

Doubt you'll see this this before you hit the trail, so hopefully you had a good day on it. We ran 21 rd yesterday and that is a nice trail! We ha 13 rigs all told with only 3 of us little guys (our 35s got dwarfed in the line up photo) but we all almost made it to it the top. 3 buggys broke (2 stub shafts, and 1 driveline,) but everything besides my lockers got trail fixed ( they've mysteriously become non-functioning even with a manual insert in the rear!) I was still able to make to just below the 2nd alcove and decided that's where we needed to turn around and only had to get a slight tug out of one hole. All in all, great day! I'll try to drop some photos of how the bi boys did it eventually. We bypassed a couple spots where most of them had to winch or realign several times and that was as good a time watching them as anything. Well, I'm off to Pace Lake, so have a good one!
