October 19-20 Pit Bull R/C Offroad Jamboree @ Uwharrie

#1
Description

We're going back to Big Creek Rocks this fall for another epic weekend of scale tiny trucking! We're excited to have a new title sponsor, Pit Bull R/C. Building on the format that we've used for the past 3 years with GCM Adventure Series, the Jamboree will feature hours of scale trails, a peer-voted GCM #tinytruck Gallery, and challenges that will put your teamwork to the test. As if that weren't enough, we'll be adding courses for rock racing, vintage buggy racing and monster truck racing. You won't want to miss this!
The expedition trail event will use the same tech scoring and gallery voting that we use at all our events (see below for more information on tech scoring).

SHIRTS AND HOODIES
T-shirts, long sleeve shirts and hoodies are available and must be purchased in advance. You will see the shirt options during checkout.
CAMPING
Camping at Big Creek for Friday and Saturday nights is included with your registration. We will have pop-up (military-style) showers, porta johns and wash stations on site. We will not have any power hookups for camping. Other camping options are available in the Badin Lake area through www.recreation.gov.
MEALS
Meals are not included in the purchase price but are available for purchase. We will have breakfast sandwiches available on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and BBQ dinner available on-site on Saturday night. Breakfast will also be available on Saturday and Sunday mornings for $4/meal if purchased in advance or $6/meal at the door.
