April 16-18, 2021 brings us the 3rd annual Gambler 500 Florida 'Triple Threat'. New camp, new trails, more thrills & chills & spills. This is our BIG annual car rally PLUS we have Hooptie-X action and mini-bike racing in camp. Three big activities, one great location. Meow!
Yes, that's right. Hooptie-X is going to be sharing the 'Gator Rally' with us at camp this year on April 17, 2021. Imagine the carnage as you watch hoopties spin around the track designed just for Gamblers. It's going to be a riot!
When your not out chasing checkpoints and playing on the trails, hang out in camp and enjoy the mini-bike racing action. Yes, sir. We are racing mini-bikes in camp on April 17, 2021. Mini-bike Mayhem VI: Ryback's Revenge, Gambler style.
We've got a 'Trashy Car Show' planned for ya on April 16, 2021. This is a true guerilla event in a place guaranteed to turn heads. We got trophies on the line this time. Bring your 'A' game and update your CPR cards.
Ahoy, me Hearties. One special rally option this year is the 'Gambler Treasure Hunt'. This will be a one day challenge involving LOADS of driving and problem solving. Decipher the clues & make it to the checkpoints then fortune & glory await. Fail, and it's the plank for 'ye. Aarrrgggg!
New for 2021 we are adding 'Hobby Horse' racing to the Florida Gambler. Categories include jumping, dressage, barrel racing, goat yoga and team polo. A true opportunity for the great unwashed to demonstrate their poise and sophistication to the elite while competing in their bare feet. Giddy up!
Basecamp in 2021 will be Spyder MX Action Sports Complex, just off the Florida Turnpike. 4222 U.S. 301, Wildwood, FL 34785. Convenient to Orlando, Pensacola, Jacksonville, Daytona, Miami, Tampa, Dallas and Seattle.
The Withlacoochee State Forest serves as the backbone of our off road exploration. 1000+ miles of off-roading available from hard packed dirt roads, sugar sand, 4X4 only Jeep trails and swamp & muck. If you need to get you off road fix, this is the place. Bring a tow strap.
Stepping up the volume to 11 this year by adding some live entertainment in camp this event. The goat sacrifice is a hard maybe. Look to the Haiti Gambler for that action.
G500FL has always supported Veterans. The CVA will be our official food vendor in camp. Providing you with all the comforts of home, well, what ever you can do over a grill anyway. So show them some love and support and buy a hot dog or something. It's for a good cause.
How do you want to spend your nights? RV sites available for glampers. PLENTY of room for tent camping & glamping & tow rigs & puppy dogs & zombies. You can even bring an RV to a tent site, just won't have power. Nice!
Leave some goodies, take some goodies. Last event the Gambler Pantry was a big hit with participants. Concept is simple- take or leave anything you want. Extra food? Zip ties? Tow strap? Candy bars? It's all there for you. Meow Mix is ok, but no cats. Anything left over will be donated.
Just down the street from camp is one of the nations largest retirement communities, The Villages. Luckily they are out of ear shot, so banging your rev limiters wont send 'em into cardiac arrest. Yes, golf carts are allowed in camp this year.
The Florida Gambler is dedicated to providing our annual event at the lowest possible cost. There is NEVER a charge to rally. However, if you camp with us there is a charge for the facility- $25 per person for the entire weekend (no pre-registration). RV sites are available for $75 for the weekend. Cheap, cheap.
Influencing the powers that be is a time honored tradition. Who are we at the Gambler not follow this important ritual? So find one of my grand kids and make our planet a little better. Judge Darla is accepting adult beverages, and Meow Mix goes straight to the local animal shelter.
The evidence of man can be found in some of the most beautiful places in the world. In 2020 we recovered over twenty tons of trash. In 2021 we will do even better. Support the Son's and join the 501C3 non-profit gang to make the planet a better, cleaner place.
Lot's of fun ahead today. We got checkpoints on road & dirt & a car show in the evening. Something for everyone.
Long, big, bulgy day planned. Mini-bike & car racing action. Loads of checkpoints. Camp fire shenanigans & live music.
More checkpoints, more fun, more chances to strut your stuff. And we end the day with trophies at camp. Meow.
The 'Gambler 500 Florida' returned to the 'Hog Waller' for our big 2020 event June 2020. This campground served as base camp for our weekend of fun and adventure and shenanigans. 251 teams and over 700 people shared the weekend. We even had hot showers, so talk about glamping!
The first Florida Gambler was held April of 2019 and attended by over 650 people with 210 Gambler teams. Amazing attendance for our first effort. You bet your hat & spurs this has started something special. ABG!
