    The Yearly Calendar of events for the park was filling up fast, and we had to pull the trigger for this weekend. We were lucky to get a weekend as this place is getting so popular, they are filling up weekends a year in advance now.

    Thursday evening pre-run dinner
    7pm at Springfield Brewing Co. Downtown Springfield on Market & Walnut st. 301 South Market 65806

    Great relaxing place to eat, and sample the home made award winning Hefe Weizen beers.


    Saturday after lunch events...

    50 yard drag races

    Best timed obstacle course

    Looking forward to seeing old faces, and hoping to meet many new ones this year! :)

    Smorr is located in Southwest MO.
    This is a Privately owned park with over 930 acres, and over 75 miles of trails rated from 1 to 5. The park has very nice amenities, including modern bathrooms/showers, Large Pavilion, clean camping areas, compressed air, child playground, obstacle course, great food-Bfast/lunch/dinner. There are a couple RTI ramps, mud pit, drag race area, and a Jumping track to get daring on. There are places set up in the park to have a nice picnic lunch or relax for a while, enjoying the beauty of the Ozark hills.

    3-Minimum of one locker / 33"+ AT or MT / 4wd / 2-4" lift / Rock sliders, skid plates preferred as there is a chance of undercarriage damage

    5-Front & Rear locked / 6"+ lift / tons of articulation / full under body & roll cage protection, 5 point seat harness / 36"+ MT / winch / Will take on body damage / Lots of HP / Psycho attitude / Trailer to get your broken rig home / Doubtful We will be doing any of these trails...lol

    Not much on camping? Hotel 6 miles from the park.
    Ava Super 8‎
    1711 South Jefferson, Ava, MO
    (417) 683-1343‎

    Directions to the Ranch....HWY 60 (goes across southern MO) to Seymour (east of Springfield). There is only a couple exits for this tiny town. They should all lead towards the center of town. Once your south of the RR tracks, you will wind your way thru the square and to HWY K. Take HWY K south 5 miles until you reach the park. It will be on the south side of HWY K and trust me, you wont miss it. Look for the signs, and the ranch style entrance.


    Hope to see you there, tell a friend! :D

    Well since I didn't make it to SMORR in 2011, I am going to try and make it to this meet. I'll have to check the dates for finals but I think it should work out.

    Not sure if we'd do any wheeling (new explorer has 1 l/s and 31" tires) but we might take the weekend to camp, hang out and enjoy the bonfire.

    ...hopefully its not as ridiculously wet/cold as it was last year...
