details can be found at www.mudfest.co.nz

Seems like run by 4 and Rotary guys. Previous ones have flopped so be interesting to see how this one goes, but if I want to play in mud its cheaper to go to Woodhill.

Sort of my thoughts as well.

Mud bogging is hard on ya wagon with radiator starter and alt all getting nailed. Plus other lesser things like trans and diff seals and ujs getting packed full as well.

Good luck to the promotors and i hope he does well. Interesting to see the limit of 150 vehicles at $80 =$12k and more if this $150/vehicle.

Imho a better price would of been around $30-$40

They were aiming it more at the tradie with a 4x4 ute, came to our club meeting last week to explain. I agree $80 for driving around in a flat, muddy paddock is expensive & doesn't interest me, but I think they have quite a few going.
Biggest concern will be the safety aspect, hopefully they'll have experienced people there to oversee recoveries.
