Tow Strap Required
Waterproofing Recommended, only for a very short period....but pretty deep if you don't make it ;)
Winches Recommended, Can only winch from Natural Course Objects, No penalty for using to winch yourself or a friend.
Penalty Winch, If you absolutely cant get past a gate. Hooking a tow strap to your vehicle and pulling it across the gate, will incur a -20 pts penalty
Rollover Penalty, If you or a fellow driver can not right yourself you may use your tow strap to roll back over in the same spot it will cost you -5pts
All classes will run at the same time, with the course divide into different starting sections.
No Hand of God (Unless your about to snap a axle or break some parts from a bind, will be deducted -40 pts)
Gates are live all the time even when progressed through. ALL parts of the gate are live at ALL times, if you roll into three gates you already passed down a hill well... -30pts
Both Left and Right side gates are live and individual meaning if you hit both sides of gate 13 you will be deducted -20pts (-10 per side)
All Gates must be progressed through in forward motion, no reversing through gates or skipping gates you must take the winch penalty.
On or Off course repairs are not penalized just finish on time or incur unfinished gate penalties. Chassis, Axles, and Tires must remain the same throughout the entire course.

Team work, team work, team work
Please respect trail courtesy and give your fellow drivers some room before getting behind them attempting a obstacle, and in return if you have tired the same obstacle
more than 5 times Please allow the person behind you to attempt it. This will help keep the flow much smoother and fellow drivers can help out once they past a obstacle.
Kids of all ages are welcome, but please keep in mind this will be a rocky course and they need to be watched at all times.
Parking in front of Asheville Stone and Grading and to the left at the Garden Spot or if its all full on the side of the highway...
There will be a Bounty Run, $1 gets you 1 Timed run at the end the entire pot goes to the fastest time.

Course will Start @ 10am and will End @ 5pm. Bounty Run from 5-6pm and Awards at 6pm. Course will have multiple start points to get everyone in the action right away. If you get there
late and miss the start that is fine we can start you at any point during the day, BUT at 4pm time will be called there will be a 10 minute wait period
and Final time will be called. Any unfinished gate pairs will incur a -5pts penalty. Time does NOT play a roll in your score, so drive wise.

Drivers will start with a 0 point score, Penalties will deduct from this starting score, Highest score wins. Items might be on the course that could add to your score +10 in your favor.
You will score yourself, this is on the honesty system so please play fair and fellow drivers keep a eye out.

Lets do some good while having a of fun, schools will be letting out about this time and a lot of children loose a daily source of food. We would love to make a donation to a local charity to help out in the time of need. Any Canned Food or Non Perishable Food item will get you +40pts to your score card at drive check-in. There is a Dollar General right across the street from the event.
