Camp Zero Contraption Show Presented by Martian Machine

August 4 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Celebrate What Happens when Martian Imagination Meets Earthly Engineering
Join the crew of the bizarre and the builders of the ingenious at Camp Zero’s Contraption Show presented by Martian Machine. If you’ve crafted something that’s part engineering marvel and part creative madness, we want you and your contraption to take center stage at this showcase of the outlandish. This show will park itself at the heart of Camp Zero to display the wildest creations you’ve ever seen on Sunday, Aug. 4 from 4-6 pm.

From backyard brainchildren to garage-born wonders, this show is all about celebrating the odd, the inventive and the downright fun. It’s a chance to marvel at the extraordinary inventions that redefine what a machine can be. Join us to experience a collection that represents the height of eccentric engineering!

This crowd-pleaser is open to all, free of charge, inviting the curious, the imaginative and those who just love a good show.

How to Enter
Entry is free! Register on site from 1-3 p.m.

Get ready for awards that celebrate the spirit of innovation and the joy of creation. Details on the specific prizes will be revealed soon, but you can bet they’ll be as unique as the contraptions themselves.

The contraption that steals the show will not only take home the Camp Zero Contraption Show’s top honors but also gain entry into a grand arena of creativity, competing for the coveted title of Master of Machines.

Meet the Brains Behind the Show:
Tyler and Amity are just a Midwest couple who not only fell in love with each other but also with the excitement and adventure of a two-wheeled machine. Tyler’s passion started at a young age tinkering on cars and motorcycles. Amity’s came much later after going to many motorcycle events with Tyler. Tyler realized he wanted to immerse himself in the industry after a soul-searching Ride 1k in a Day motorcycle trip. Amity realized it shortly thereafter when they were on a motorcycle trip near Lake Tahoe, and Tyler was receiving many compliments on original parts on his bike. Both bring many years of machining, fabrication, and business experience to the table. Tyler has spent his whole life working with his hands in garages and homes. Amity has spent her career in sales, finance, and business consulting, and has had her fair share of time spent with Tyler wrenching in the garage.

Timmy is, well, Timmy. He quickly became acquainted with motorcycles at the age of 17 when he wanted to ride a motorcycle to Sturgis with his brother Tyler. Tyler told him to ride his motorcycle, a Honda CM400, every day for well over 6 months before that trip, and then he would feel confident riding with him. Timmy rode that motorcycle every day and ended up riding to Sturgis that year for the first time. The following year, Timmy graduated from high school, and Tyler convinced their dad to buy Timmy a box of Sportster parts for graduation. After graduation, Timmy and Tyler spent the summer getting that Sportster ready for Timmy to ride to Sturgis that year—which he did. Since then, Timmy has spent his time traveling to motorcycle events, welding and building various motorcycles. Most know him for the very eccentric things he has created on his motorcycles over the years.
