Are you ready for an adventure? The Idaho Off-Road 4X4 Club is hosting it’s 6th annual Chuck Coble Memorial run on Saturday, April 27th, 2019. The Rocket Run is a nighttime off-road event where participants search for illuminated checkpoints in the Owyhee Desert.
Idaho Off-Road Club is an association of people brought together to share a single passion: Four Wheeling! They are a family-oriented club dedicated to keeping our public lands open while practicing the policy of TREAD LIGHTLY!
So, what exactly is the Rocket Run? You start the evening with an amazing dinner with all the trimmings, prepared by The Basque Market, before you roam around lost in the desert. Of course, before you head out, you will have the opportunity to win some awesome raffle prizes!
This fun run through the desert is also a poker run with prizes. Once you check in at each of the three manned light towers, you will be given the GPS coordinates to bonus check points. If you make it to the bonus check point, you get an additional playing card to make the best poker hand.
How it Works:
After dinner, a rocket will be launched off in the distance.
Every 30 minutes a visual hint will be provided to help you head in the right direction.
After you find all 3 light towers, head back to base camp were you will be entered in a drawing for prizes
After the run, we will enjoy some coffee and doughnuts and watch the sun rise
A 4×4 vehicle is required. Full size, Jeep size, UTV, ATV, or dirt bike (Everyone must be in groups of two or more people)
All vehicles should have the following:
- A driver and an adult navigator
- A GPS device. Cell phones are not recommended because there is very little cell service in the area
- A CB or ham radio with a tuned antenna.
