We just expanded/added to the rock course at the motorsport area - should be a fun time to visit for the appreciation run. :thumb:

You should be able to run the section on the east side. Its easier to run from top to bottom, then trying to come up from the "road".

Let me ask this a different way...
With this run now including the rock course, will we need both, the ORV permit and license?

The rock course is in the MSA and you need both stickers.

Where and what time are we meeting up Saturday ? Is there a campground nearby that any members are staying at for the weekend?

I'm comming up Sat am, should be there after breakfast. I'm planning on staying the night on Sat.

I'll probably need a ride over to the Rocks from the parking lot since I'm pretty sure my Fusion won't have an ORV sticker. This may present a challenge If I bring my 3 year old.

Not sure who I'm suppose to let know this, but Dennis from St Helens campground , would like someone that's heading this run up to get ahold of him about how many more people are reserving for 18th and 19th. Could someone make sure the right person sees this post?! thanks :)
Ray and son will be up there for run and camping nest weekend.
Looking forward to it!

No.
Please let Sara or Jim know how many are in your party so they can plan lunch/dinner accordingly.
You should have received an email request for this information.

Well If I can fit the Jeep, we'll bring it. I'm sure the girls will want to have their own rig there.

No, but the directions from the St Helen chamber of commerce website

St. Helen Chamber of Commerce

Saint Helen Campground

Located in Roscommon County, the heart of northern lower Michigan. From I-75 exit at mile marker 222 - Go north on North St. Helen Road (Old M-76) five miles to the stop light at Airport Road and turn right (east). The campground is located on the left, 1/4 mile east on Airport Road next to the airport and park building.

Didn’t take too many, but here they are.

This is her favorite rock, so she said. It’s probably still in the back of badazzamc’s jeep.

She was so nervous about Travis trying to drive on the rocks, it didn’t help that lousypirate kept creeping on her, lol.

She was so amazed by the fact there was a chair in the stall by the toilet, she told me to take a picture.

Anybody know if there will be a run this year?

My girls have been talking about it since last summer, and I'm trying to plan out my summer schedule.
