For those new to our hobby or Jeeps, please join MWJT as we present our semi-annual “Jeeping 101” offroading class. The day will consist of a classroom portion at Valley Lion’s Club in Belgrade, lunch, and then head to Pruitt Mountain Offroad Park to try out our newfound skills.
To ensure everyone has a positive and productive experience, we will need to limit enrollment to the first 50 Jeeps. Participant Jeeps should have at least 32″ tires and/or be a solid axle vehicle.
The class will begin at 9am (so be there ready by 9am), and last until about 11am, and will include classroom fundamentals of off-roading techniques, tread-lightly concepts, vehicle technical basics, and potential vehicle modifications. The class is taught by MWJT member(s), and Axleboy Offroad will lead the technical discussion on features on your Jeep, useful modifications for your Jeep.
After that, we will provide participants with a lunch, served by Kelly’s Katering food truck. Then all participants should find their way to Pruitt Mountain Offroad Park (in Belgrade, MO area) by 1pm. There we will get everyone lined up and put your newfound skills to practice on the trails at Pruitt Mountain.
Cost is $35 for adult participants (driver or passenger), $10 for kid passengers 12 and under. This includes the class, lunch, and admittance to Pruitt Mountain. Payment must be made in advance here on Tito. Participants are encouraged to bring an FRS radio, but if you don’t have one, there will be loaners available. Additional details will be provided on recommendations and a discount from our club sponsor Midland Radio.
**Special thanks to Axleboy Offroad and Pruitt Mountain! Axleboy, is the event sponsor and also providing the “technical” part of the morning presentation. Without their assistance, MWJT would not be able to offer this full day of education and trail time! **
