Spring Open Invite @ The Flats/Down and Dirty For Life

Rock Corps 4x4 Club is announcing our spring open invite for April 20th-22nd. @ "THE FLATS" This year we are going to combine our ride with the "Down and Dirty For Life" fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. The gates will open 9am on Friday and close 5pm on Sunday. Admission is $10 per rig...$10 per person...kids 15 and under are free. Camping is free. This covers you all weekend so bring your family or yourself and have some fun for a great cause! "THE FLATS" is located @ I-40 East to exit 85.Turn right and go 1/4 mile and the park is on the left

Down and Dirty For Life 2012
With the help of Rock Corps 4x4 Club and the American Cancer Society, my family has been working on organizing a fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society. This event will combine everything you love about wheeling at the Flats, with raising awareness and money for Cancer Research. There will be a tent with Cancer Information, vendors, and a raffle. One of the raffle items will be a handmade Cancer Awareness quilt. We will also be lighting luminaries at dusk on Saturday in remembrance and support of anyone who has battled cancer. If anyone would like to share a survivor story after the raffle, that would be awesome. Please email me at downanddirtyforlife@gmail.com if you'd like to share your story at the event, or if you have any questions or comments.

Mcdowell county. I-40 exit 85. Its always crowded on the open invites, but alot of people like going there. I've been once & that was enough for me.
I'd go again if it was free.... or if you could take beer in with you. Type "the flats" in on youtube and you'll see a bunch of videos of it.

They have a few quick trails for daily driver/mild rigs, but most of the folks there are in custom built trailer queen buggies. We were not used to driving on trails & being in traffic at the same time. You know when you come up on a wreck & all the other cars are rubber necking... Then you go by it and say WTF was that about? Thats how it felt trying to trail ride at the flats.

The Flats is one of my favorite places to wheel. Wet or dry, it offers challenges to all types of rigs. The people there are great and I feel some of the comments above are pretty far off, I've wheeled The Flats 7 times now and I can always find open trails with zero traffic.
