Stock 200 series... What would we recommend the minimum armor be in place for this? Right now, I believe the recommendation for the first round is rock sliders, then tires. Would that suffice?

What does it mean "no prorating?" Does that mean if I wanted to camp but not wheel, I'm still paying the full $150?

Good question. I'm not 100% sure...
My initial thought is that you would be responsible for the camping fee for the weekend, as in $40 + $40 for event registration. There may be a passenger fee on the part of the campground. As in you would pay a camping and some reduced land use fee.
Most, if no all, off-road parks charge a fee for passengers.
I will have to as the question and get back.

You'd be able to have fun at Cove on some of the trails no problem with that setup.
All I'm going to have is just sliders still most likely

These are the rates for the Cove.
If you just camp it is $40 for the weekend plus $20 for thursday night.
If you wheel or ride as a passenger it is $50 land use fee for the weekend.
If you sit at camp and drink all day, you do not pay the land use fee.
If you are in a vehicle, you pay the land use fee.

Please abide by these rules. It is hard to get a group up there for an event, lets not spoil it by not following the rules.
We are going to have the large camp ground and the trails to ourselves.
Hope this clears things up.

Some of the trails are totally doable stock. Sliders would allow a little more peace of mind and to maybe try some more challenging obstacles. Either way you should come.

@captainva there will be groups for different skills. I would suggest go out with a group for greens trails (easy) with your rig on day 1. Then jump in and ride with someone for a some blacks/blues trail (harder) run on day 2. This will let you know if building your rig for not harder wheeling is what you want or keep it tame; hit the dirt when you can and set around the camp TV and listen to all the embellished stories of the day.
