The Scene

This will be as unique as the name, one of the first of its kind completely enclosed in the Alpena County Fairgrounds.  That means friends, family and spectators can watch all the action unfold right in front of them.  There are stands set up for the super cool crawl corral as well. We are going to get the spectators involved in this one as well at specific obstacles with things like water balloon bombardment and others.

 In addition, come in Friday and stay with us, watch a movie on the outdoor screen in the camp ground.  Roast some marshmellows, make some smores and enjoy the night before the Redneck Rush Saturday.  Plaid or camoflauge attire is encouraged as well as all that is "redneck".  This will be a family fun event open to every age.  

Proceeds from this event are special, going to Vietnam Veterans Welcome Home weekend which will be Sept. 26-28.  That event is a tribute to the Vietnam Vets who never got a welcome home from war
