@ lynskynbnd great name! I'm seeing skynyrd at Jiffy Lube (or is it the Nissan Pavilion now?) next month. Anyway, is this "The Cove" where the dirtbiking trails are? I've been to a spot called the cove to go trailriding but I didn't know if they had Jeep trails or not. How much is the course? And is this yearly?

My first Jeep was pronounced (cher-uh-kee)
My current Cherokee is Second Helping
My YJ is Nuthin' Fancy
When I get another Jeep I'll name it Gimme Back My Bullets
It's a Skynyrd thing....

The Cove Campground has dirt bike and ATV trails for use most of the year, Several times a year Big Dogs hosts Off Road events there for Jeeps, Buggies, and many other makes and models. Theses trails ar different from the dirt bike trails.
The Off-Camber Crawlers has the 101-201 Off-Road Classes there every July. This year they are on the weekend of the 20-21st. OCC does not charge for the class, but The Cove charges for camping and land use.
OCC also has two OCC Members Only runs at The Cove every year.
If you want to get involved with a great off-road club check us out at www.offcambercrawlers.com
