Join the North American XJ Association of Jeep enthusiasts on their annual Cherokee Crawl this time in beautiful Black Mountain, Harlan, KY.
The event will be (officially) July 1 and 2, but we'll have a number of people on site for informal trail rides the few days leading up to that. They are holding it at the Black Mountain Off-Road Park in Harlan KY and using the Harlan County Campground as our event headquarters. Saturday will be our big day with the raffle and the BBQ dinner that night. They reportedly hired the Harlan County Coal Burners, a competitive BBQ team, to feed everyone once again.

Rock Corps would like to thank everyone for coming out this past weekend to the SFWDA Meet-N-Ride at the S.H.O.P. The temperatures were hot and so was the wheeling, I didn’t hear of much carnage so it sounds as though a good time was had by all. There was a quick introduction meeting to get people acquainted with Rock Corps, the SHOP, and the upcoming events for SFWDA. From there groups formed up and headed out to explore the park, Lunch time rolled around and hot dogs, hamburgers, and cold cut sub sandwiches were served with chips and cold drinks. After lunch more trail riding and park exploring was done until it was time to head back to our individual destinations.
Again Thank Each and Every One of you that came out to show support for Rock Corps and The SHOP and we look forward to seeing you again and coming out to enjoy our pride and joy called Sugar Hill Off Road Park
Rock Corps Board Of Directors
