It’s finally time to CRAWL!
After the last two years, CottonLand Cruisers will host The 17th Annual Southern Cruiser Crawl on October 6th – 9th, 2022, at one of the best ORV parks in the country: Hot Springs Off-Road Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Over 200 Toyota 4×4’s and other makes attended this event in 2021. Go ahead and register now! Don’t miss out on Cottonland’s awesome drivers bags. We only prepare 200 of these bags loaded with goodies. You know you have been waiting for this event!
CottonLand Cruisers strives to provide an atmosphere with something for everyone. Hot Springs provides clearly marked and well-maintained trails that range in difficulty from moderate to extremely difficult. Facilities include primitive camping sites, RV hook up sites, a large pavilion, shower house, and a general store. Check out the Hot Springs ORV website for more information: Hot Springs ORV Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas. If you already have a spot reserved Cottonland recommends that you contact the new management team at the park and confirm your spot.
Cottonland has arranged for a food truck again this year. They will be serving breakfast and lunch on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Between the food truck and the meals provided for those that register and purchase meal tickets at night you don’t have to bring any food!
This year on Friday morning at 9:30am Cottonland team members will be guiding newbie runs on 1 and 2 rated trails throughout the park. So, if you have never been to the Hot Springs ORV or your wife told you not to tear up her 200 series, come on up to the pavilion and get in line at 9:15.
Thursday night Cottonland, with the help from the Arkansas Crawlers, will be providing hamburgers, hotdogs, and drinks around 7:00pm. Then after you get your belly full, Cottonland is gonna turn on a playlist and hang out under the pavilion. It’s a night to
catch up with your internet friends. It will be a night you don’t want to miss.
Friday, get out there and Crawl around on the trails, but plan on being back by 7pm because Cottonland will be providing Bubba’s Catfish for those that register for the event. Then grab a cold drink out of a Cottonland Cooler and give it up for for Lovin Ledbetter on the Cottonland stage.
Saturday Cottonland Cruisers will host a Barbeque dinner at 6:30 pm to be followed by the annual CottonLand Raffle. In 2021, CottonLand’s Raffle had a total value of over $20000! Keep a big bill or two back because CottonLand Cruisers will come through with big prizes for our fundraiser. Past beneficiaries of our fundraising efforts have been: The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Mission on Wheels, WOMEN ROCK, INC., The Blue Ribbon Coalition, The Wounded Warrior Project, Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital, Mustard Seed of Mississippi, The National Fragile X Foundation, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Special Operations Warrior Foundation, The Down Syndrome Association of Memphis and the Mid South, Mississippi Chapter of the Alzheimers Association, and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
This year’s fundraiser will be our most important yet. Cottonland’s Board of Directors has selected the #livelikelash scholarship fund that a great member of Cottonland launched. Toyota Land Cruiser Association has joined up to help with the administration of this scholarship.
This year’s Crawl is going to be one for the books. Register now. Get your junk ready for
October and come ready to play on the trails, laugh with your friends and remember one
of our own, Lash Lacoste.
