i saw on facebook where the courses were going to be changed, just wasn't for sure if it was going to be done before this event. I enjoyed the courses at the last Jeeptoberfest. lots of fun and i'm looking forward to it this year.I'm in the Ocala Jeep Club and I can guaran damn tee you the courses are different... About the only thing left alone... So far, Is the extreme course
Trust me, I was there last weekend
the courses weren't "bad". I understand that you can only do what you can with the limited space that you have to work with. if I could change only 1 thing with the courses it would probably be to do away with the extreme course to have more room for the stock and modified courses. I say this because 99% of the course participants only used these 2 courses. I know you try to have something for everyone but when your dealing with such little room, you have to sacrifice somewhere. like I said, the biggest let down for me was the vendor issue.They ended up putting a hard bottom on most of the water just to keep vehicles moving... In that respect the bunny course may have been a bit easier.
I will pass along the comments to the powers that be..... My sorry ass was stationed at the 1st pit in the bunny course so I didn't get to see any of the main action :flipoff:
i also had my 9 year old son with me who wanted to ride the courses. he was only allowed to ride on the stock course because of his age. there were also STOCK Jeeps out there with nothing more than 33" tires running the course in 2wd. yes it was a little tougher for them to do it than me but the point is that course was not difficult at all with any Jeep.No wonder you did the STOCK course in 2wd, you have Rubicon lifted 3.5" sitting on 37" tires. Hence the words "Stock course"
I think there were only couple hundred vehicles who registered for the courses at SOAR where there were a couple thousand who registered for Jeeptoberfest last year.This was hosted by The Market of Marion, not the Ocala Jeep Club. Though I'm sure they worked with them on this. That might be why there was so few vendors. And this is only their 2nd year at doing this ( from what I was told ) so not a lot of people knew about it.
But to me it was a mini Jeeptoberfest. But no long lines to go on the courses.
And besides the weather was great that weekend.
The 400 vendors,, they were talking about the flee market.
