Default Lakeland Scale Crawlers...........

Hey everyone. .. This is a place for Lakeland and surrounding areas (Plant City, Winter Haven, Haines City, Bartow, ect....) to hang out and plan get togethers.

We have a local stomping ground affectionately known as " The Pit ". It has trails for all classes of scale rigs. We are always improving the area as well. It is located across from

5920 Strickland Ave. Lakeland, FL

This is a family oriented group and encourage a family atmosphere. We love meeting new people and new hobbyists. Our local group loves running at night and during the day.


You can find more daily chatter on our Facebook group. Just search
Lakeland Scale Crawlers
and if you're from FL I will approve you for the group.

Hope to meet you soon....

Cory





Below are some videos from our G2Gs..... enjoy

Our Next G2G is coming up...!!!!!


Saturday June 27th
@ 0800
0845 drivers meeting
0900 hit the trails

"The Pit"
5925 Strickland Ave, Lakeland
Matt Knobles Field

The course is mostly shaded. Bring drinks and snacks. No flip-flops or sandles please. The trails are pretty rugged in places. When you arrive we will be straight across from the entrance, at the corner of the ball field against the tree line.

Can't wait to see you there....

What a great ride today. I think we had around 15 rigs workin the trails. If you weren't there you really missed out. We started a little late, around 930, and about 45 minutes in had some rain that cleared quickly. Then back out to a completely different course...lol It's a whole new ball game when it's wet.

Here's some pics..... enjoy

Whens the next get together? I couldn't make it out due to not having my real truck and my crawler front axle needing to be replaced, I usually go out with the Bradenton scale trail blazer group, looking forward to making it to the next one.

The day run has been canceled..... BUT !!!! Zach will be doing a night run @ Loyce Harpe Park.

Meet up at 6pm at the finger trails. Just keep right until you find them. Don't forget extra batteries, flashlight, drink and bug spray. It's always a great time.

I'm from Miami but visiting my brother from another mother this weekend and would like to run on this course. Is it open to the public?

Yes it is. The main gate is closed because the ball field lights need tepair. You can park at the gate and walk in. The trails are in the wooded area surrounding the park. Please mind your footing and enjoy yourself. ...

Also, we have not worked on the trails in a while so please excuse the mess....

Join our FB page and post up when you go. I'm sure others local to the area would be interested and happy to guide you through the trails.

Hey everyone,

The first G2G of the season will be

Sunday Nov. 8th
1pm
@ The Pit
G6 style run

We have added some new trails and changed some of the old ones.
We are hoping that the gates will be opened so parking will be easy.
We would also like to ask for a $5 or $10 dollar donation from everyone. This money will go towards getting club insurance. Once we have insurance we can have the gate opened any time we wish. It will also allow us to have events at any county venue we wish.

Can't wait to see everyone there.

Cory

Just sent a request on fb to join your page. I'm just north of Jacksonville but don't have a problem making a 3hr drive for a all day gathering. Is there anything coming up in the near future?

On Jan. 16th we will be hosting a Florida 1st Class Krawlers event at "The Pit".
I believe the times are 11-5pm at the pit and probly a night run after a dinner break. The 1st class guys are a primarily a "scale" class1/custom build group so trail runs will be geared around astetics and photography. Basically, if you bring a wraith or yeti, you will be bored. But if your into really scale awesome looking rigs, this is for you.

Sorry, we do not have a schedule that far out. I usually try to post events about a month ahead of time. Our next event is looking like Feb 21st.

We also hope to do a comp before the summer rains start.

Our FB page is probably the best way to keep up with us.
