Clubs

M and my sister are both into wheeling, but we can only get into it so much because of the lack of trails in our area. We have started talking about joining a club. We are both kinda young(i'm 16, she's 18), but we want to join a club that has a better knowledge the our on jeeps, and a club that helps provide places to wheel at. If you know of or are in a club and you want 2 new members let me know. We are in Crystal Lake(60012). Thanks

i'm thinking about it, my old club just over the border in wisconsin is disbanding at the end of the year, and the firewalkers are the only ones around.

i was thinking of starting a club, and not one that meets in a bar every month. i know a lot of people that might be interested.

As long as you dont pull up to the trail in the Astroglide van, I dont think there would be a problem

Not only is it a great time to meet new and old friends its for a great cause too.
Yes it's that time of year again and we hope to see some old and new faces at this years event. details are below and here is a link if you have any questions. All 4x4's are welcome.

GLJT T4T's Parade

Great Lakes JeepThing's 10th annual Toys for Tots
Dec 14th 2008
Line up begins at 8:00am
Start time 10:00am (be there early!)
Downtown Chicago
Start point McCormick place parking lot "B" (truck marshalling area)
Contact Kevin Gray
E-mail x-zr2@hotmail.com
Web site Great Lakes Jeep Thing
IMPORTANT: Entry fee is at least one BRAND NEW toy still in the original packaging! Please do not ask to participate if you are empty handed.


It's that time of year again in the Chicago area. Time to start the buzz of one of the biggest and most important 4x4 events of the year. GLJT's Toys for Tots parade. Five years ago in 2003 our little event officially exploded into something much bigger than just us. Now, this event has grown into something that belongs to the 4x4 community as a whole. With 250 vehicles, over 500 people, and 20 different clubs represented. Funny to think that just 10 years ago the first parade included nothing but GLJT members, and totaled to about 15 jeeps. Now this event has multiplied several times over in attendance, has been covered on local TV networks, newspapers, and escorted by Chicago police.

This year we will be starting in McCormick Place parking lot "B'. Located off the 31st street exit from Lake Shore Drive. The parade will leave at 10:00am SHARP! So please get there early enough to have time to get those Christmas decorations on your vehicle. Did I forget to mention decorations? The parade is never complete without them. Some participants have really gone all out for this event. Decorating their jeeps like Santa's sleigh, or leaving no piece of sheet metal on the Durango untouched.

That leads up to the other thing that participants are highly encouraged to do. While the entry fee is at least one toy, please try to bring more than just one. Participants always come with vehicles full to the top with donations from friends, family, and coworkers. Posters are available at GLJT meetings for making your own 'drop box'.

Once attendees get there and are ready to leave at 10 we head north on Lake Shore Drive to Foster Ave. Exit on Foster, and take Foster west to the US Marine headquarters for toy drop off. Be sure to have your CB radio on during the drive. We'll be on channel 4. If you've never seen 300 decorated 4x4's being escorted down LSD by Chicago police ... you just have to be there. It's a breathtaking site, especially when one considers the cause that this is for.

If for some reason anyone is unfamiliar ... the Toys for Tots foundation is run by the US Marine corps. It was put into place to help raise toys as Christmas presents for needy children. I think there are a lot of people here that have it better than most, it's important to remember that, and not take it for granted. Every child deserves at least one new present for Christmas. With your help we can make that happen. If you come out and ride with us, you will make a difference. And you might get your mug on the nightly news!

Line up at 8:00!!

There will be a short but sweet driver meeting at 9:45 before the parade leaves. Someone will be in the middle of the parade with a bullhorn to announce final details before we leave.

PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD!!
