When? Sept 12, 2009
Where? Rubicon Springs Campground, Rubicon Trail
Part of a larger event? Yes, this is part of the 8th Annual Marlin Crawler Round-Up

Last year at our 7th Annual Marlin Crawler Round Up event held every September at the Rubicon Springs campground, Rubicon Trail, we held our 1st Annual Marlin Crawler R/C Rock Crawl Competition and it was a huge success!

We had over 70 spectators watching 16 competitors duke it out on the rock garden that forms a part of the Rubicon River bank.

The weather was perfect, the course was setup in 3 progressively harder sections and it was fully on!!

This Competition is held during the Official Marlin Crawler Round-Up Event, so if you are wheeling in with a real trail rig and you plan to camp, then you must register for the event. If you are simply going to bum a ride with a friend who has a Rubicon capable rig then registration is not necessary for just you.

We also have an Official Round-Up Registration Thread located on our forum through the following link:
Official MCR8 Registration Thread --- Sept. 11-13, 2009

Lets see who is going to Rock Crawl both in a real rig and in a scale rig!!

Bring your RCs! Win some prizes and maybe even compete against Marlin!!

If you are planning on participating in the 2nd Annual Marlin Crawler Round Up R/C Rock Crawl Event, please let me know so I can add you to the list!

There is NO fee to participate in the R/C Rock Crawl Event, however, as noted above, if you plan to camp in a 1:1 rig, you will be required to register for the Round Up since it is an Official Event that has reserved the entire Springs Campground.

But, if you bummed a ride in and are just camping in a lil tent by yourself, then registering for the Round Up event is not required.

Current list of people signed up:
Myself! 2.2 Axial

any 1.9 rigs in there? my MRC is ready....

otherwise, if I can make the event, I may need a 2.2...already have the Pitbull tires for it :D

Awesome. I really want to get those tires also, hopefully by the round up :)

All classes are open! It just depends on how the sign-ups go. If we get a bunch of 1/6th scale Nylints (Lord helps us) then we'll setup some courses lol

Right now we have 2.2s and 1.9s signed up :D


Plus I can afford it.

Yeah, you say that now :D:D

Hey Big Mike, met and hung with your dad for the roundup, great guy.

Tell him the token Canadian is coming down to visit.

Rob

Ok Rob, I'll let him know ;)

I have a Losi mini, modified (wheel weights, steel gears, high angle drag kinks etc) very fun and addictive. Wish i could go to your event!

You've got time! Buy some plane tickets! They are cheap 6 months in advance :grinpimp:
