Arrow Official "SCALE4X4RC.US" Summer Scale Competition (2009)


I'm pleased to announce there will be a scale comp this summer in northeast Alabama, in association with www.scale4x4rc.us

DATE:
July 25th & 26th, 2009


EVENT DETAILS & RULES:
This will be a two day event, with no entry fees. The Saturday will likely include all the scored competitions. Sunday will just be a more casual get-together type thing, with lots of trailriding, scale rock-crawling, etc.

There will be three competitive class categories (all scale events). Scale 2.2 and scale 1.9 class will follow these rules:
http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=9792

***There will be a tech inspection for those competing in the comp classes, including scoring points for scale appearance & accessories. See rule thread here:

http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=30424

As you can see in the "Scale appearance points..." section of the rules, there are a lot of scale points to be had, and they can have a huge impact on your course score, so bear that in mind as you all prepare your rigs.


The third class will be "Special CC01/XC 1.9". The rules for this class will be the same as the scale 1.9 class, with the following exceptions:
-Only the Tamiya CC01/XC chassis will be allowed.
-Mild chassis modifications are allowed (examples=improving rear four-link suspension, steering improvements)
the "RC Channel" brand metal axle and suspension kit for the CC-01 chassis is allowed.
-Vehicle must be independent front suspension (IFS) (no TLT or similar solid front axle) and vehicle must retain its basic tub chassis configuration.
-Any wheelbase is permitted, as long as it fits within the scale proportions of the body.
-Only OEM 1.9 tires will be allowed (no cut&shut/reduced 2.2 tires are permitted for this special class)

edit Note (6-10-09): This note is for clarification on tires allowed for the Special XC/CC01 class- There was a question about whether the stock Tamiya BFG's were the only tire permitted. Any manufacturer's 1.9 tire is allowed. So, if you want to run any of RC4WD's 1.9 tires like Mud Slingers or Rock Crushers, that's fine. Proline's 1.9 Flat Irons are also permitted. The rule on tires was only established to exclude cut & shut/reduced 2.2 tires for this special class.

The actual gated courses may include some mud and water crossings, but they shouldn't be too much higher than axle deep.

Note on rules: The scale competition and points rules which have recently been in the process of amendment here, will be adhered to upon finalization.

LOCATION:
The location for this meet is "Little Rock City" aka "Cherokee Rock Village" in Cherokee County, Alabama. It is located a few miles off of AL State Route 68, between Leesburg and Collinsvile. The access road is all paved, and any passenger car will have no problems getting to the site.

4-6-09 Here are the exact mileage & detailed directions for the last few turns:

Coming in from the Collinsville side:

From the intersection of US 11/AL Hwy 68 (the one leaving S Valley Ave) in Collinsville, go 7.0 miles and turn right onto CR 36 (County road 36). There is a blue and yellow CR 36 sign as you approach this turn. This road is also marked "VALLEY ST", and there is a beige metal commercial building at the turn.

Coming in from the Leesburg side:

From the intersection of US 411/AL Hwy 68 in Leesburg (4-lane intersection), go 2.7 miles and turn left onto CR 36 (County road 36). There is a blue and yellow CR 36 sign as you approach this turn. This road is also marked "VALLEY ST", and there is a beige metal commercial building at the turn.

Then, once you've turned onto CR 36:

Go 1.4 miles and turn left onto County Road 70. You will see this sign:



Once you've turned onto this narrow paved road, bear right at a fork at 0.5 miles. Then continue for 2.8 miles until the dead-end at the parking area.


Here's a map link to the site: (this is my first attempt at making a google map, so if the link opens with the view zoomed in to the max, then just zoom out and it helps to hit the "satellite" tab for a view of the terrain. The blue icon is the parking area.)

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en...019474129d08ba

LODGING AND SITE FACILITES:

Found some great info on a lot more accomodations at the Cherokee Chamber of Commerce website, link below:

http://www.cherokee-chamber.org/Cont...madations.html

edit: trying to fix the above link on accomodation choices, it was dead. If the above link doesn't work, go to www.cherokee-chamber.org and then click the "TOURISM" tab along the top, then click the "Accomodations" tab on the left side. This should bring up a list of area hotels

For hotels, the actual closest one is probably the "Days Inn" in Centre.
http://www.daysinn.com/DaysInn/control/Booking/property_info?propertyId=18213&as_srp=SP2&cid=cara t_search-Days_Inn

There will be many more options in Gadsden, AL, which isn't all that far away, and will have a lot better restaurant choices.

Camping is allowed.

Note: for those plan on camping, be aware that there are no improved campsites or facilites. (no water, electricity, bathhouses, etc. ) The camping I've seen falls in the "primitive" category. Also, there are no numbered campsites or reservations, so I assume all the campsites are "first come first serve". The only facilities I've observed are two porta-johns and a dumpster.Just wanted everyone to understand what to expect. The property is a county owned park. This is not a State park with amenities that you might expect at a normal, modern campground. Also, this area is a mecca for rockclimbers and rappellers. The point being that in the warmer months the prime camping spots may be hard to get, but for those intent on tent camping, there will be countless other places to set up camp, being that this is a 200 acre park.

3-6-09 Spoke with a County official recently about camping. Campfires are allowed as long as there is no burn ban in place due to dry conditions. Camp stoves, barbecue grills, lanterns, etc. are all ok too. The only requests made were to not cut any trees and to use the dumpster and not leave any trash behind. He said it's ok to use any fallen limbs/trees for campfires, but that a lot of folks just bring their own firewood.

The actual event site is located on and around rock outcroppings along a tall bluff-line, overlooking Weiss Lake.

Quote:
quoted from Cherokee Chamber of Commerce:
Cherokee Rock Village is a 200 acre County owned park located on Shinbone Ridge west of Leesburg. Enormous sandstone and quartz formations rise to 150 feet and measure 70 feet wide in some areas.

The facilities onsite are minimal, but do include port-a-johns. There is no electricity provided, and most people charge their batteries in their vehicles. Also, be prepared and consider bringing your own food and drink. Although bottled water will be provided free of charge, the nearest service station is 10 minutes or so away.

I'd still make you pay for part of the R/V and that case of beer you owe me!

I'll put up a post on the front page of the website.

By the way, we're just about done with the new scale rules. So expect those to be in use for the comp. I'll update this thread when they are finalized.

Sounds good Matt, thanks.

And the announcement about the comp on the homepage is cool! Even though the meet is still a few months away, I'm already pretty pumped about it!

Since I enjoy taking pics & vids so much, I'm hoping to be able to do a lot of that. Hopefully we can get some volunteers to help some with officiating so I can do my thang with the photo's. And along with others that I'm sure will bring their cameras, there should be lots to look at afterwards.

Ok Colby, I'll get you added back to the list.

I'm strongly considering trucking in some water in containers in case the nearby mudhole happens to be dried up. Like I mentioned in the first post, any mud/water that are within the comp courses shouldn't be much over axle deep. But I'm thinking it would be cool to have some mud in the trail portions.
