Camping is available, costing $15 for a tent site or $20 for a camper. There will be a vendor’s raffle for $1 each ticket, and a meal on Saturday night for $5.

Show Off Your Driving Skills at Old Settlers Days This Weekend

OldSettlersDayMost 4×4 owners can never get enough off road seat time. Get yours in at the Maxwell Iowa Old Settlers Days Jeep Event! This is a non-timed tough truck style obstacle course designed to challenge your driving skills.  You’ll find mud holes, hills, logs, frame twisters, off camber obstacles, and a log bridge. Last year’s participants say it’s similar to the Iowa Jeep show track.

Open to any 4×4 whose willing to pay the $10 fee and meets their safety regs. I’m told that the course is set up for short wheel based vehicles, but that just sounds like a challenge to me!

Registration for the event begins on Sunday, August 3rd at noon, with the main event at 1pm.
