  • Minimum of 2 additional pieces of functional recovery gear mounted to vehicle in addition to winch (Tow strap, sand ladders, pull pal, snatch block, D-Ring, etc)
  • Minimum of 2 scale accessories mounted to vehicle (shovels, camping gear, CB radio, air compressor, roof rack, lights or light bar, etc)
  • 4.75” max tire size mounted on a 1.9 wheel only.
  • There may be water obstacles on the courses so it's best to prepare for them.

Note: If any vehicle doesn't meet all of the requirements (except tire max size) it may still compete with a +10 added to the score.

Course Rules:

  • There's no gates used and the event is not timed. We only uses course boundaries so you can pick your own line over obstacles. Please take your time and help your buddies out, that's the fun of it all!
  • All recovery gear used must be mounted and carried on vehicle (excluding winch anchoring points that stick in the ground) to be able to be used.
  • Everyone starts with 0 points and the lowest overall score wins. Tie breakers for top 3 are done with a new event challenge.
  • There will be a minimum of 2 optional bonus sections per course that are worth -5 points each. (May be a tire change with spare tire, a technical challenge, a photo challenge, a dice challenge, find a hidden item challenge, etc)
  • During recoveries any winch lines used must be secured to something solid or something secured into the ground. No holding the end of the winch line in place with your hand, she lace, etc and no stepping on it with your foot. If you can't take a photo of the recovery without someone in the picture then you need to change your rigging.
