WHAT A FAN­TAS­TIC JOUR­NEY WORK­ING TO­WARD THE COALMONT 4X4 IN­VA­SION. It is turn­ing into a very suc­cess­ful event. They al­ready have par­tic­i­pants from the east coast of Canada and from our neigh­bours to the south, mak­ing the Coalmont 4x4 In­va­sion a coast-to-coast in­ter­na­tional event.

It is sure to be an ac­tion packed week­end with fun chal­lenges us­ing your 4x4. Test your sus­pen­sion on the RTI ramp, or ‘be­come one’ with your rig on the ve­hi­cle size teeter­tot­ter. Let’s not forget the trade-show where ven­dors will show you what’s new in the of­froad in­dus­try to help you bet­ter equip your rig, and hope­fully you’ll find some great deals!

There will be learn­ing ses­sions, morn­ing and after­noon, for the new­bie to the ex­pe­ri­enced of­froad en­thu­si­ast. If you want to test your new­found skills, you can take in one of the guided trail runs each day.

Af­ter your day on the trails, Myles Mur­phy and the Out­laws will be per­form­ing Fri­day evening so you can burn off any resid­ual adrenalin.

And what does A.W.A.R.E & Af­ter The Black­top Ends (ATBE) have up their sleeves for Satur­day? Well you will have to at­tend to find out. You may have to take the fol­low­ing week off… just to re­cu­per­ate.

Five years ago, ATBE set a goal and put a plan in mo­tion. The goal was to unite the var­i­ous off-road groups who share a com­mon in­ter­est in of­froad­ing; Jeep, Toy­ota, Land Rover, Chevy, Ford, Ram, Nis­san (you name it). The Coalmont 4x4 Jam­boree is cul­mi­na­tion of those ef­forts. ATBE is not a brand-spe­cific group and they be­lieve that if we all work to­gether we can make a pos­i­tive im­pact for our off-road com­mu­nity.

Ses­sions of­fered on the en­vi­ron­ment, how to tread lightly with off-road ac­tiv­i­ties (proper re­spect and use of trails), may sound bor­ing, but it is a vi­tal as­pect we all must be A.W.A.R.E. of, to sus­tain the of­froad sport for years to come.

If you haven’t al­ready pur­chased your tick­ets, do it now and make sure to join them at the Coalmont 4x4 In­va­sion Jam­boree! More in­for­ma­tion and tick­ets can be found at www. af­terthe­black­

Driver/rig tick­ets are only $175.00 for the week­end and in­clude a camp­ing spot, ses­sions, trail rides, four meals, en­ter­tain­ment, door prizes, ac­tiv­i­ties and much more!

We would not have this level of in­ter­est if it were not for the ef­forts of the very ded­i­cated peo­ple that have helped turn a dream into re­al­ity. The Coalmont 4x4 In­va­sion is tak­ing place in Coalmont, BC from July 5 - 8 2018 and it is go­ing to be a fan­tas­tic time for all at­ten­dees.
