June 11-14th. This just so happens to be the same weekend that RC has an RC ROCS competition too, so it will be an exciting weekend!!

So get that vacation time booked now!!

We don't have some of the other details worked out yet, but as soon as we get them finalized, you'll be the first to know.

Thanks,
Andy

The park is packed during a comp. Hard to walk through the parking lot. Good luck.

Just hope that everybody is gonna be watching the comp, and not on the trails.

Honestly though, there are a lot of guys I'd like to watch/support during the comp...I'll be out there either way though. The unfortunate thing is you'd have to space the NAC-Fest event several weeks before or after that comp to get a good attendance I think, because a lot of people probably can't make it out as often as they'd like.

I'll mark it on my '09 wheelin' calendar though.

Exactly Chris. May weather hasnt been kind to NAC-Fest's of past, the Prez has a few commitments (lets face it, he's gotta be there) and July would conflict with the SEC's event.

With some careful planning we should be able to pull this off without too much trouble.

Well, like I said, I'll likely be out there anyway that weekend. I'd go wheeling over watching if it comes down to it (unless I get roped into spotting again).

Just curious...where are we planning on camping for this? Given the last couple issues with echo valley...

Deke's spotting for Timmay? Colin have someone lined up? You may need to worry.

We will not be camping there again, BOD is working on alternatives currently.

Can't wait to hear more on this - while a tractor shed retrofitted with bits from a motor home on its way to the boneyard isn't my first choice of abode, being able to stay in the campground and not have to pitch a tent was a nice change from having a 15-minute drive back to the hotel. I'd like to do that again this year.

Do other campgrounds in the RC vicinity offer campers/etc. as well?

I'll just be booking a hotel (mother and sister aren't too fond of camping).

Hampton Inn looks fairly close, and they're usually pretty clean.

The BOD is still working on some of these details, and we'll let you know if this is an issue.

I'll either be competing in my rig or spotting our class 3/4 ZJ. Depends if it gets done in time. You guys are welcome to camp with us, but don't expect to have a ton of room. Those weekends are absolutely insane.

Space will be tight that weekend. Last year we limited camping to competitors, judges, staff and will probably do the same this year.

There will be an event fee of approx $20 or $25 just like in years past. It covers the BBQ and raffle for the club.

If your talking about the RCROCS event, no. It will actually be cheaper. To spectate at the RCROCS event, it is a $5 entry fee. If you want to wheel the day of the comp, then it is the usual RC entry fee.

I ment to get into the park since the RCROCS event will be going on. But I think Andy answered my question. So If I get this right everyone would save money on the park entry fee if NAC fest is held on the weekend of the RCROCS event, is that right?

I know it's been a bit but the $20-$25 is for the NAC-fest (which is cheap) and each person takes care of the RC fee when they get to the park,it's not part of the NAC-fest event fee.

i'm most likely makng my annual pilgrammage to the Big Dogs Spring Fling, which is the week prior. after three straight days of wheeling out there, my rig probably won't be repaired by the following weekend. :confused1

Your somewhat correct... If you decide to watch the RCROCS event as a spectator, then you only pay $5. This means that you park your Jeep in the main parking lot and walk to the gate and pay, then walk into the comp course area and watch the competition. If you want to wheel for all or part of the day, then you pay the normal park entry fee for the day ($30-$40 depending on if it is your first time there) to go wheeling.

If you go wheeling, and want to get back in time to watch some of the comp, thats fine, you don't have to pay anything additional. You just park your Jeep in the main parking area, then walk in the gate. Just make sure you show your wristband to the person at the gate.

More then likely I will be up there that weekend for the comp. As of right now it's undecided if I'm driving or spotting in class 1, 2, 3, or 4. If I do end up spotting I will still have my old class 1 xj with me to make several attempts at the middle line on crawler. Normally I try to wheel either the day before or after the comps. I've wanted to make nacfest for several years but something else has always come up. Hopefully that changes this year.
