    The next Novice Ride will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2007 at 9:00 AM. Open to anyone, no matter how stock you rig is.
    We will be meeting near Tar Hollow State Park.
    The ride will last most of the day, bring lunch, non-alcoholic drinks, snacks.
    Vehicles must be licenced and insured with seatbelts for all passengers (we ride on legal Ohio roads, all Ohio laws are in affect)
    Vehicles need to be in good working order, we don't want to spend all day fixing a rig.
    Tow hooks are highly recommended.
    Vehicles must have 4 wheel drive, not AWD (big difference)
    Ohio 4x4 claims no responsiblity for injuries, dents, scratches, getting dirty, smelly, or how ugly Roy's truck is.
    There's no charge for attending the Novice Ride. The idea is for folks to come out & decide if they like offroading generally, and our club specifically.
    A CB is recommended for communication on the trail with trail leaders, other riders and for spotting. It's not a requirement.
    Strong recovery points (e.g., tow hooks) are also highly recommended, but not required.
    Per club rules; drivers must be 18 or older, passengers can be any age, but everyone must have a seatbelt.

    We are meeting at 9:00. Leaving for the trails at 9:30, if you not there and ready to go at 9:30 you may be left behind.

    Here's how to get there from Columbus:

    US-23 South
    Merge onto OH-56 E toward CIRCLEVILLE.
    Turn RIGHT onto OH-180.
    Stay straight to go onto OH-327/CONCORD ST.
    Continue to follow OH-327.
    Turn right onto Clark Hollow Road (couple miles after the sign for Tar Hollow State Park, if you get to a carry out you have gone too far)
    We are meeting at the Ranger Station on this road, There are three gray cinder block buildings with green roofs and white garage doors. They are on the left about 3/4 of a mile off of 327

    It will take 1 1/2 to 2 hours to get there from Columbus.

    A few observations about the Novice Rides:

    Fill up your fuel tanks before you get to the trail. Most folks will want to do this in Circleville or Chilicothe, depending on where you're coming from. There is a little mom & pop gas station/convenience store near the meeting spot, but we're not making any guarantees it will be open at that time.

    Also, make sure you bring plenty of non-alcoholic beverages, and a lunch. Wendy's & Mickie D's haven't quite made it to the trails yet.

    We generally have 40 to 60 vehicles. We normally break up into at least 3 groups, divided by driver skill level/vehicle capabilities. A "beginner" group, one or two "intermediate" groups, and an "extreme" group.

    We usually finish things up no later than 4PM. However, you don't have to stay that long. These trails (abandoned, but not vacated, township roadways) crisscross paved roads throughout the area, and we usually come to a paved road every couple of hours. So there's plenty of opportunity for folks to wheel just a little bit, or for the whole day, depending on your preference.

    Be at the meeting spot no later than 9:15 AM, and 9:00 would be better so we have time to get the paperwork done & groups split up.

    Mainly, remember the idea is to have fun & get to know each other & what we do as a club.

    Apparently, some experienced wheelers have come to this event in the past, expecting a technical trail. I personally can't understand that thinking; our advertising for the event is pretty clear, even to me. But, to make sure there is no misunderstanding:

    This is a NOVICE ride. It's aimed at folks who don't currently wheel, or maybe only go out once or twice a year. It's intended to introduce folks to offroading generally, and our club & members specifically.

    Don't expect major technical challenges that require 35" tires, dual lockers, three winches, and two spotters to get through. We do get into that kind of stuff, but not on the Novice Ride.
