  • About HDR

    By Angela Cook

    Held on Memorial Day weekend, this will be HDR 49, and we have had a lot of changes over the years. We have held the event in a few different locations, but the best one so far (in my humble opinion) is at the Slash X Ranch in Barstow. We also do some things the same way, but I’ll start with the changes.

    This year, we will be charging a few more dollars, BUT you will get one free T-shirt with each preregistration! You will still be able to order more shirts, and we will have a small amount available to purchase on-site. But, if you wait till you get there to register, we will not be offering the free T-shirt, so be sure to preregister and get your shirts!

    We will now be doing the games on Saturday, both for adults and kids. You can test your rig on the RTI ramp, the teeter totter, or you can get your passenger cooled down at the wet lap game, which will be hosted By GenRight Off Road. If you would like to see a retired game come back, feel free to offer to run it! We can always use volunteers.

    Another staple throughout the years is the raffle. We are working hard to make the raffle a successful one, and we can use help from all of you to do it. BFG, a long-time corporate sponsor for Cal4Wheel, is now going to include an extra tire to their prize! So you could win five tires instead of just four, and they will now go up to size 37”. That’s worth the price of a few extra raffle tickets!

    Donations of money or product are always much-appreciated. Please let Alan Bauer know if you, your club or your company would like to donate so we can get your name or logo in the program.

    Things are always subject to change, so check the website before you go. We are all volunteers, but we try to run things as smoothly as possible. Patience and a good attitude make for a great event!
