Sent you my e-mail DB. I was looking for a "lift" for my hard top and saw a YouTube video for a DIY hoist made from 4 eye bolts and ratchet straps...mine cost $32 total, and I can have my top off in about 5 minutes.

Well I have gotten roughly 12 emails from peeps so far with an "active" interest in moving forward with a club! As stated before, come Friday I will create a list of the indiviudals who have reached out to me and send a group blast email with a couple suggestions to schedule our first meet and greet.

Once I have a reply from the group, on that blast, I will again send another blast that will clearly define what the group majority selected as our location and potential date/time for the meet and greet. The meet and greet will be an opportunity for all the memebers to put a face with a name and show off their jeeps.

During this time we can chat about how we want to move forward as a club, reviewing such topics as a club name, activity schedule and so on.....remember the idea here is to get peeps out and about with their jeeps. This means off-road, on-road and so on. Club activities will range from simple cruises, camping trips, and different levels off trail runs to local off road parks and so on. So long as we keep the club members envolved and not create activities that single owners out.

I hope to get a good mix of jeepers in the club so that we have a select number of folks that can be a good source of help for those who are still learning and or have not yet had the opportunity to enjoy their jeep off road on easy and mild trail runs.

I want to quickly address a few questions I have gotten from folks as the word of the club kick off spreads.

No- this will not be a fee based club. The concept, hands down, is to get peeps out with their jeeps! If for whatever reason the group wants to entertain some type of small annual fee for a specific and meaningful reason then obviously that will be considered and would have to be voted on and passed by the group. But I cant express enough that my goal here is to create a club that is made up of jeep enthusiast who enjoy getting together on some sort of repetitive basis through the year to get out and enjoy being a jeep owner in various forms........period!

No - a club name has not been selected yet.

These and other related topics will be covered during the first meet and greet. As stated before this is the time when members will get to meet one another and we will review and agree on these type of topics as a group

No - This is not just for hardcore jeepers. This club is for everyone (all levels of drivers and jeep types). The average member will more than likely have a jeep as their DD and activities will be planed with the consideration that not every jeeper wants to hit the trails or challenge the limits of their jeep. With this in mind I envision majority of the clubs planned activities being family driven and with the end goal of having fun with our jeeps and not just parked in a parking lot trading jeep stories. So this will range from fun trail runs, BBQ's, camping trips, cruises, meets at parks, car shows, and the list goes on and on and on.

No - Members wouldn't be required to wear a specific club t-shirt and or have a specific club sticker on their jeep or anything of this sort. Keep in mind the idea of a club isn't just to say your in a club but the opportunity to have a group of friends who share your love for jeeping and want to activity get out on a monthly or bi-monthly basis and enjoy owning a jeep!

However, I would hope to gain members who are motivated about being in an active club and not just meeting up once a year....that defeats the purpose! Look at it like a bowling league or something...lol

Hope this helps!

Additional note, if the group wants some sort of club sticker and or t-shirt for planned rides and activities then I will take care of those expenses and the associated legwork!

My wife is fairly handy with photoshop and various other adobe creative suite tools. I could probably harass her into designing something for us.

Couldn't have said it better myself....I have built a few simple websites in the past if it turns out that is something people would like a place for pictures of our outings

Just had a name pop into my head! Even though you said it would be handled later, thought I'd share.

JeepIn

As in, Jeep Indiana
or
"hey man what are you doing this weekend?", "probably going Jeepin'"

Clever right?

Ok folks we have one day left before we create or potential member list as a result from all the peeps who have e-mailed me their contact information during this week, as requested. From this member list an e-mail blast will be sent in effort to swiftly organize our first meet and greet!

For those of you who have already sent me your contact information don't forget to tell a fellow jeep owner! Of course if we have folks that miss our deadline, of this Friday, doesn't mean they will not be able to take part in this club.

The deadline has been set in place so that we can at least start the process of moving forward in effort to get this off the ground and take advantage of the summer months!

If anyone has questions they would like addressed before sending me their contact info for potential membership feel free to contact me at wizore@yahoo.com

Ok folks, todays is the day......if you havent sent me your contact info you will not reiceve the e-mail blast that will be going out first thing in the AM with information about the clubs initial meet and greet.

This email blast will contain members name and e-mail addresses, some basic information on how we will be moving forward as a club and topics that need to be addressed during the meet and greet, as well as other details related to our first meet and greet such as location and time.

The organizational process will go fast as the point of the club is to get out on the road having a good time with our jeep's with like minded people and meet a few new friends in the process!

If there is anyone you havent reached out to that is a jeep owner in the local and might be interested, by all means make contact with them asap!

I went up to the car 'show' at McAllisters Deli on 96th and Meridian. Lots of cool cars, no jeeps while I was there though. Been enjoying the top down/doors off weather.

I stopped to help a stranded motorcyclist yesterday too... Poor guy was from Canada, bought the bike in St. Louis, and it broke down on him twice in 100 miles. I couldn't help much as I didn't have any tools with me, but I bought the guy lunch and hung out with him until his friends from Ohio arrived.
