CENTRAL STATES ASSOCIATION OF SHRINE MOTOR CORPS OBSTACLE COURSE

click here for print friendly version      3-4 wheel course layout

Each member Unit may enter into the Obstacle Course and may enter as many vehicles as they wish into the Obstacle Course in whichever class they fall into. The classes in the Obstacle Course are the same as the Competitive Drill classes. There are two courses set up, one for two wheeled vehicles, and one for multi-wheeled vehicles. There is no set course, and each course is usually different than from previous years. Each course is timed with electronic clocks. The object is to complete the course in as fastest time as possible, without leaving the course, and stopping the front wheel of your vehicle in a set stopping area. Each course has small cones outlining the course with painted directional arrows on the path of the course. If a rider leaves the outline of the course, he must re-enter at the point he left the course. If not, he is disqualified. A one second penalty is given for each cone that is knocked out of place, and each time a foot touches the ground. The two fastest times of the Unit are combined for a total score of the Unit. Trophies are awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each class.
It is to the Unit's advantage to ride as many riders as possible. This way, if any rider does not complete the course, or does not stop in the stop box, and is disqualified, the unit still has several scores that can be used.
There is no inspection required on the Obstacle Course, except that the Officer in charge of each course may verify your proper classification.
Some Units are composed of vehicles that according to their cc's, may fall into more than one Obstacle Course or Competitive Drill class. There is no rule prohibiting them from entering more than one class. The only exception is that they must have at least two riders, and that no member may ride the Obstacle Course more than once.
