Question What are our thoughts on this?

If we start a meet-up group (The basics - Meetup) it's $12 a month.

I'm thinking that if we plan at least 1 monthly run, camping trip, pic a lili dinner ect we could easily keep it going. We could make it private & by invite only, that way it's on the down low, we will know exactly who's coming & and more easily ( i know it had to have taken a lot of work jack!! <3 ) planned b/c it's all in one place. Anyone can organize an event & not everyone would need to go to each one....

We could also plan runs for out of NJ like Rausch Creek (I've been dying to go!) or maybe pa or ny or something.

Jack created something here!! Lets keep it going w/o having to worry about "everyone" finding out so we can worry less about getting into trouble

Thoughts?? I'd be happy to create the group on meet up and then we'd just each pay like 2 or 3 bucks each time we get together (if it ends up being more than the dues we'll put it into a rainy day fund or sorts, tee shirts bumper stickers, a round of drinks who knows.... Sound fair?

There are also a few web sites that you can create a forum for free and then make it private any one who would wanna join would need the be approved by the adim the only one coming to mind. Would be forumotion.com.

We could do that too. I only suggested meet-up b/c we could cap the amount of people by the amount of RSVP's we accept. No limit on amount of members but limit for each event.

Example: http://www.meetup.com/The-New-York-J...-Meetup-Group/

I like the idea of a club, but not with dues. Maybe charge for events to pay for permits. That way you would only have to pay if you show up. Just a club for like minded people to get together and have fun. No club leaders or monthly meetings. If you want to creat an event then you are the leader of that event.

I completely agree, meet up was the only site I knew of that could do that....I did search around and found another one, it's Free group forums, calendars, file sharing, admin tools & more | BigTent no fees, no leaders just event planners and such. We can add pictures etc.

It's a slow, boring day at my house today so I started a group up. If it takes off, awesome, if not no biggie

It's called South Jersey Jeepers. It's not the prettiest website, but I think it would serve the "under the radar" purpose.

See if this takes you right to the group...

Forget that site, it's beyond frustrating...

I can't figure out how to make it live & searchable....it wanted an external website (so a made a facebook) and still wouldn't let me....screw it.

So....there's a facebook group now that's searchable but posts/events/etc are only viewable to members. Join if you wish...we could privately plan events on there...I am going to make everyone that joins an administrator, so we're all equal members of it.

Not invite only, just more private than wrangler forum so that the whole world doesn't know what we're planning

I agree with 4x4builder1. Keep it simple. Dues are for clubs only, but this could be the start of a club formation. See how this grows and how often the same people show up. The ones who are more dedicated to this, would be the ones for "invite only" events or founding members for a club.
Either way, I'm in. It's a far drive for me, but as long as we are like minded it would be worth it. PM me with more details

It's a far ride for me too but I'd like to make trips down there from time to time and check out the trails but with far fewer jeeps

Sounds great. I just asked to join the facebook group. This sounds like fun
