I use to belong to a tractor club that was center around a forum like this. The forum members would have gatherings all over the country they would call Cubfests (It was an IH Cub tractor club). A member would simply post that they were hosting one along with details and those wishing to attend would simply let them know. The gatherings were generally over a weekend and hosted by one of the forum members. They were family friendly gatherings that were either at a forum members home or a place large enough to handle whatever sized group that planned to attend such as at a park. All would chip in for meals throughout the weekend. The days would be spent socializing and/or doing shop work on a tractor or two all while getting to know others that shared a common interest. The nights would be spent hanging around the camp fire. People would either camp at the Host's home/park, or stay at area hotels. I even hosted one myself. My fest ended up having around 200-250 people from 14 states, 40-50 tractors and loads of fun for everyone.
I know many people have organized groups for various jeep events that often involve rock climbing and treacherous trail riding which is lots of fun. However, what I was wondering, does this forum engage in activities a little lower keyed much like I described through my experience from tractor forum only for jeep wrangler owners for a weekend of non stop cooking out, socializing, and fun for the entire family? If so, great, just point me to the details. If not, I wonder if something like that would work here?
