Rich Oliver Fun Camp

I rode the Rich Oliver Fun Camp last weekend. It was a blast. I met up with a buddy from Salt Lake. If you get the chance to attend, do it. It is more fun when you are there with guys you know. There is a lot racing on a couple different small tracks.

Here is Rich taking me on the outside. Watching him was cool.

Isn't this the one that is known for smacking your elbows to remind you to keep them up?

No. This program was all about building confidence and having fun.

So is the other one I'm thinking of its just kind of a playful thing they do. Can't remember the name of that one. Maybe Ofugit will add to the post I think he took the one I'm thinking of. The one you posted here looks like it's only in CA.

Dave - I think that was American Supercamp? Think lotsa the old skoolers took that. (Grasshopper, Ofugit, Kim, SuperDave, etc etc.)

Thought it was down in Springfield someplace. Do they still do that around here?

Google's been pretty pissed off at me lately. All judgmental about me drinking before noon and some other shit. Whatever.

You're my friend though!

Those camps are a blast! Colin Edwards has one too. There were some pics Rossi at going at it on the little bikes.
