    That's right Krewe!! Our 1st Annual Mardi Krawl event
    is going to happen April 4 - 7 at
    Hawk Pride ORV.

    If you haven't seen the thread, 4 members (Kevin, Erick, Matt and Cody) went to Hawk Pride last weekend and despite the inclement weather had a good time and nothing but good things to say about the park and the owner. I spoke with Mark, the owner, today and he is very excited about the possibilities of us holding an annual event at his park. He said he is in the process of making improvements and is adding new trails. Deryl, Jonas and Jason will be spearheading putting this event together. Any ideas can be funneled through them. Keep in mind that this year's event is obviously short notice so we will not be attempting to go full blown event on this one. There may or may not be a small raffle. Instead of buying tickets we may be making a donation to a charity. It may not be catered, and there may not be a registration fee (park fees will still apply and we are working on what that will be) but who knows. Our event committee is working on that stuff right now.

    As we get more details, our event committee will be let us know what is going on. For now, mark it on your calendars and start begging for time off!! :clap::bounce2::clap:

    EDIT: Apparently I was wrong about the not going full blown. This has kind of taken on a life of it's own.....

    REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

    Click here. The registration button is at the bottom of the page. Get it while it's hot.

    And if you haven't heard about the raffle prizes, a couple of vendors have already stepped up.......

    TRDParts4U ----------> ARB RD111 Air Locker

    Pandora Adventures ------------> 2 trips to Cancun

    Plus more from Expedition One, Rock Tactics, All-Pro, Southeast Overland, WabFab with more vendors committing every day!

    This is gonna be a fun time guys and gals. Bring the family and have a Mardi Krawl weekend!!

    I hope it isn't Ms. Jean. We started in late Feb and due to one issue or another it has been moved to the first weekend in April. As Erick and Deryl have said, it will undoubtedly be a good time. We hope to have a pretty good turn out this year and will grow this into a SCC or Jambo type event in the coming years. :idea:

    What will we need to do at the event Mike? I can't say I've paid attention when I've attended one. I'm always too excited to notice what their doing.

    I am just one so April seems like a good time. You will just have to have fun without me :frown:

    There is an election April 6th..a small one but have to be there regardless. On a good note the polls will open an hour later :)

    Day 1: Wheel, drink, have a good time (not necessarily in that order).
    Day 2: Repeat day 1
    Day 3: Repeat day 2 (or day 1 depending on which one was better for you) and participate in a make shift parade.
    Day 4: Go home.

    Gotcha, I was just wondering if we would need to be responsible at all and get anything done.

    Fire... Kevin and I got it. We managed to make fire with paper that wouldn't burn, no worries ;)

    That would be a great thing to see, Jason. We will also be inviting Bayou State, CottonLand and some of the clubs that are local to the area. I told Mark that we would probably have around 30 rigs total. But I would love to see 50+ in the first year. I am just waiting for some info from Mark before we put the invite out to the other clubs.
