the great jeep rally in ct

The great american jeep rally
september 27,2009
location Somers, connecticut
at the fair grounds
starts at 9:00
$10 for jeep and 5 people to get in.
i think it's the best connecticut has to offer. In past years they have had real large crowds.
As I get more info the rally I'll post it here on connecticut thread.

I wonder if we could start a thread of extra parts ect that each of us have that we could bring if anyone else is interested to kinda treat it as a swap meet as well. I know I have a ton of goodies that are sitting in my garage just gathering dust.

sounds good to me, but is there a way of getting it out to other jeepers in the area. (maybe a thread in another section of something)

Hi to all of you CT Jeepers!!! I can't wait to go to the Rally at the end of September. I just love the whole "Jeep Thing", glad to be a part of it. Hopefully, the turnout will be huge. I've not seen much advertisement for the Rally round here. Looks like the top stays on today

I'm the one to all you guys! Would be nice if you all waved back!

i've talked to a lot of people involved at the rally and they have told me that in the past years it just keeps growing and growing. they expect a big turn out from all the locals and the surrounding states. all are welcome from what ive seen.

I am meeting up with a buddy and we will be leaving around 7 or so since it is about a 90 minute ride from here. So far there are 2 Jeeps in our group, we hope to get more, unfortunately I think some are a bit discouraged because it is supposed to rain Sunday.

If anyone is worried they can buy my extra Bestop trail cover at the rally. Lol sorry I feel like Geoff. I hope we do get a little rain. Should make some nice mud to play in!

If you're allowed? I wonder how a South Jersey boy would be received? I figure it would only take 327 stops at the filling station to get me to CT...lol

Best wishes for the event!

So, I hear there is a "Rock Garden" at this event. Is this something a stock jeep can go and play on??

We went to the Rally today in the rain, I was expecting a much larger turn out.
It was fun to watch all the guys (and gals) getting stuck on the rocks. I can't imagine Jeepers staying away because of a few sprinkles... Had a good time anyway! Is there anything else planned this year?

I was there as well. Had a blast and finally got to play a bit in the jeep even though it was only on the easy course. I even won a few raffle items though they require me to spend more $. I got a 25% off and ARB item and am starting to think lockers.

Here is the pic thread I created.
