 As part of our core mission SFWDA proudly promotes Off Road Education at our events and will be offering a brief 30-45 minute Off Road Safety and Techniques course led Scott Fields of theUwharrie Off Road Training Center on both Friday and Saturday afternoon starting at 12:15pm at the staging area for guided trail rides. You might cover such topics as winching techniques, and vehicle extraction as well as how to properly traverse off-camber muddy hill climbs, and functional techniques on driving over large obstacles like downed trees or boulders. Scott makes a living as a Professional Off Road driving instructor so this should be a real treat to all who participate.
