    Default Fall Robesonia Trials Event Oct. 26-28, 2018

    Once again this year the ROVERS Club will be holding their Fall Trials event at 101 E. Mountain Ave., Robesonia, PA 19551.

    Trials events are a skill based event where you attempt to navigate your truck through a series of gates in each section. Gates are numbered in descending order and the object is to get through without touching them. Lowest score wins! The property is rocky, hilly and with mature trees. The course is laid out with challenge in mind, not carnage and some bypasses do exist.

    Friday night is set up hanging by the campfire.

    Saturday is the trials event with local pizza for lunch and a potluck dinner at the camp site.

    Sunday will be camp break down.

    There will be prizes in all the categories and usually a raffle at the end of the event.

    Camping is primitive.

    $25 for participants, Spectators/Non-drivers are $5.

    Both Saturday and Sunday events start at 9 a.m.

    I'll check with Lyle because I believe some folks are there all day, but most people start arriving after work anywhere from 4:00 on.

    All trees and rocks will be removed prior to the event for your safety.

    Thanks Bill! Good reminder! I had my tree removed after I hit it and rolled my 5-speed...

    Default productive work weekend

    Hello everyone, had a great first work weekend. Thanks to Tom (who still doesn't have a Rover ) and Steve and Lizzy for helping to create 5 sections. We have used familiar terrains that we've used in the past and reused some parts of sections but everything has a new twist. Some areas we haven't used in quite a long time. We were able to complete 5 really challenging sections. It was a light turnout for a work weekend so thanks again to those who worked their butts off to make it happen. Today we ended up finishing cleanup at the campground and were able to get my Series II 88" running!
    Next weekend I need to disappear for a few hours to go pick up my daughter and her husband on their way back from their honeymoon in Scotland but will be there the rest of the weekend. We have 5 more sections to complete and several set up ready to go, just need some changes, enhancements, etc. We can always make all new sections too if we get enough help. Work days are where you can help create what the event will be and create the fun for yourself and everyone else. Work days are free camping too! The first 5 sections are extremely challenging but can still be done with almost any truck. If anyone has any questions please let me know. Hope to see you here!
    Thanks, Lyle
