    I'm trying to schedule our Mud Race event on a weekend that no other local events are going on.

    I know that there are Sand Drags in Moses Lake on the 1st weekend in May, a mud bog (that last year appeared in Petersons 4-wheel and Off-Road) in Bonners Ferry in Idaho on the 2nd weekend of May, and theres one in Montana on Memorial Day Weekend. We are thinking of having ours on the 3rd weekend of May. Anyone know if that interferes with anything else?

    I had it last year on the 2nd weekend of May. Worked out great... except I found out after it was too late to change plans that there was a mud bog in Bonners Ferry, Idaho, on the same weekend. And they got an article in Peterson's about it. So, I want to go to that one this year on May 8-9 (assuming they are having it the same as last year). The 3rd weekend in May (May 15 and 16) still allows two weeks before Memorial Day Weekend (on May 29-31). I'll be gone in June, leaving for Vegas around the 2nd weekend, then over to Blazerfest, then back home around the last of June. Theres just not enough weekend in a year. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    i just wish everyone wasnt in such a hurry to have these, seems they get crammed into a 1 month lot and none are spread out mid summer when its nice.

    Hint, spring rain and melting snow help with the mud quality /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I'd wait til summer, but one is the water availability like Kenny said, and two is I try to leave enough time for the grass to grow back and look natural in the field again by July when the family comes up.

    Last year, we wanted to do another in August, but it was just way too dry, and I was worried about fire danger too with 300 people in a dry field.

    How many other things are going on in the spring?
