SOCAL 4x4 Fundraiser event for disabled US military veterans... Operation Desert Fun!

Ok guys, it's that time again... get your Jeep registered & come out & have fun with us at the Truckhaven 4X4 Training Facility in the
Ocotillo Wells SVRA...

October 18th and 19th 2013!



It's a worthy event that raises $$$ for disabled U.S. military veterans, most of whom we support are pariplegics and quadriplegics. This is my club's (Geared 4Fun) 11th year of sponsoring this event and I can tell you first-hand that the disabled vets that show up at the event are genuinely grateful for our support.

Not to mention this is a FUN EVENT!!!!!!!!

The Truckhaven 4x4 Training Facility is smack-dab in the middle of some of the best wheeling in SOCAL, not to mention there are many permanent fun challenges and obstacles that are there year-round.

Register and see more information for this worthy and fun charitable fundraiser at Operation Desert Fun - California Association of 4WD Clubs, Inc.

Be sure to note this... that even if you can't attend, you registration and/or donations made for this event will be VERY much appreciated. Remember who it's for... our U.S. military veterans who have been seriously wounded/injured in the defense of our country... they gave, we all should give some back to them. Every little bit helps.

Register online at Operation Desert Fun - California Association of 4WD Clubs, Inc.

Register by August 31st for only $20!!! After August 31st registration is still a bargain, considering a fun-filled weekend, for only $35. Be sure to order your t-shirt, tank-tops, hoodies, sweatshirts, ladies tank-tops, etc. ahead of time so they'll be there for you when you check in.

Thanks everyone, see you out there!

Jerry I'm going to check our training schedule to see if I have that weekend off. If so... then I'm there. I'll spread the word with the Jeepers here on Fort Irwin, and I've posted the link to it on our facebook.

If you don't mind, I'm going to send this link to 4 Wheel 2 Heal as well.

Jerry, look into a group called TeamRWB they are an amazing group that deals with post 911 disabled veterans through physical and social activity.

I know a lot of you are going from other threads, this is just a reminder that this event is happening this coming weekend!!!

If you're on the fence, remember it's not only going to be FUN, it's also a charitable fundraiser event for our disabled (paraplegic/quadraplegic) U.S. military veterans.

Truckhaven 4x4 Training Facility by Salton Sea... we'll have trails for all levels of skills and Jeep builds... from suitable for stock Jeeps to those where front & rear lockers are strongly advised. Full information including where it is can be found via the link in the top post in this thread.

See you there!!!

I must've skimmed right ever this thread till just now.

Quick question, can you register on site? I only have my phone for internet use so to me it'd be easier to just do in person. Very interested in coming out for at least tomorrow!
