You know "The Next Big Raptor Event" the guys at GLRE have been teasing everyone with? Yup...this is it. I will personally be assisting Mark and Jason in organizing the first ever Official FRF Raptor Run!

Please read below for all event details and feel free to ask any questions. I look forward to seeing the turnout at this event and meeting as many FRF members as possible. The Rausch Creek Offroad Park is well within a 12 hour drive of most major cities in the Northeast, Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, so I feel it is an incredibly accessible central location for the majority of FRF members. We have some great sponsors and special events planned for the weekend so stay tuned as FRF's Havoc in the Hills evolves!!

Click Here to Register (the registration menu is at the end of the Havoc in the Hills information!)
Registration will close on 8/31/2013!!

The Ford Raptor Forum has joined forces with Great Lakes Raptor Excursions in setting up a large scale Ford F-150 Raptor gathering in the heart of Eastern Pennsylvania’s “Coal Country.” This is going to be a 3 day event based out of Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in Tremont, PA. We have rented more than 1500 acres of the park which will be exclusive to the participants of this event. Participants will receive event t-shirts, swag packs (including sponsor items, stickers and/or brochures) and door placards. This event will not only be an opportunity to drive off-road but will also be one of the few events in the United States that will offer the participants to receive off-road driving instruction by professional racing drivers and the Rausch Creek ORP staff. The “Havoc in the Hills” event will be raising money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This event is going to take place September 26-29th, 2013.

One thing that most event to date have not have offered for participants is off-road driving instruction and for this event we have some special guests that are volunteering their time to come out and offer to share the expertise & knowledge when it comes to high speed off-roading and technical driving. The GLRE would like to welcome a couple of very special “honorary” support drivers for this event:

I think I am in! Will this is a closed corse event or will there be long distance runs like at Snoball available? Limit to the # of trucks?
