Re: OT - Any experiences with Sports in the rough?

Glad you asked...
My wife and I have been on several of his "trips".
He is a insensitive person, who only cares about himself and money. His past trips were all in places where he is no longer welcome (east coast as far as I know). His raffles are ALL donated items. Nothing out of his pocket. And, if they are from him, it is a free trip to the Alaska Challenge in January of 2007..
The food is terrible, matter of fact we don't even eat the meals with the trip..
Yet, he seems to have people jammed into his overcrowded events. He says limited to xxx amount of people...Yea, sure...More people = more money
The ONLY reason for going on any of his trips, is that it is /was usually on private land. There would be no way to ride some of these places without something like this.
Now, i'm reading that he is no longer welcome in Monteagle, TN..And has left a sore spot in Gardendale, AL..
You can't keep screwing these people without some sort of decent monetary compensation for what they provide..
I hope you don't have anything planned with him either as an individual, or as a landowner..If so, you WILL see what I'm talking about..
I'm sure I will have more in a later post...
Ricky...seeya...

Re: OT - Any experiences with Sports in the rough?

Thanks guys, I wondered since I could not get any response from them via e-mail with questions I had about one of their upcoming trips. It would appear that customer service is something they don't care about.

Re: OT - Any experiences with Sports in the rough?

If you want to go on some good trips you need to join a good club like Southern 4 wheel drive or someone similar. Southern has 4 quarterly rides that are well guided and they treat people outstanding. They also sponser two annual rides called the dixie run. One is in windrock TN and the other is in Tellico NC. I am sure there are other large regional clubs in your area that do the same sort of thing. Check United 4 wheel drives web site for some of their member clubs in your are and then try them out till you find one you like.... I think you enjoy yourself alot more than attending one of Sports in the rough rides.

And you could always go to one of the East Coast get togethers some of us have about every couple months.
