Hi Desert Round-Up

May 27-30, 2016 | Slash X, Barstow, CA
Details will be available soon

Memorial Day weekend and marks the start of summer. For those of us in the California Association of 4 Wheel Clubs (CA4WDC) it is also the time for the Hi Desert Round-Up (HDR).

The camp location is behind (in the cleared area on the map) Slash X in Barstow, CA.

HDR is a family event with guided trail rides on Saturday. There will be a best-equipped game held Saturday evening. This game is open to everyone. Get a group of your friends and stuff everything you can think of in the vehicle you choose. When I say everything, I mean everything because you never know what will be asked for. Some of the more common items asked for are: U-joint, fan belt, first aid kit, gas receipt, cold beer (this is usually because the announcer is thirsty).

In addition, on Sunday there will be vehicle games for the adults and in the afternoon we will have games for the kids. The most popular game for the kids is the stick and can game. This is a kid's version of the adult game of the same name. Another version of an adult game is the potato scoop, where the kids have to follow a course and collect potatoes and put them into a bucket. On Sunday evening there will be a kids raffle as well as an adult raffle.

We'll see you there!
