Charlotte Area Meet & Greet 8/31
 
Hey everybody,

Maybe I'm missing something, but I've come to the following conclusion:

1) There are a ton of Jeeps in the Charlotte area
2) There aren't many organized Jeep get togethers
3) Probably because there aren't many places to meet up without getting run off for people getting squirrelly or something else.
4) I don't personally know many Jeepers.

We all love our Jeeps, we all like to see others, most of us probably like to wheel and meet up with people that share our enthusiasm.
I've been thinking about a place to meet and we could actually meet up at my work which is in the Atando Industrial Park in north Charlotte on a Saturday or Sunday. It's right off of I77, there's little traffic on the weekends, we have a men's and women's restroom (1 each) and the parking lot could probably park 50+ Jeeps easily and maybe even close to 100 with organized parking if I move all of our trucks to the upper yard.

Here are my event ideas.
1) Keep it simple, everybody shows up - bring a cooler, we check out the rigs and yap with each other.
2) Throw in a mini cornhole tournament.
3) Add some gas grills to the mix and burn up some meat too.
4) Have a bikini-clad college girls Jeep wash - uh, scratch that I don't think my wife would like that :doh:

Date-wise I'm thinking End of August or in September.
This would be a no strings attached deal - I don't sell parts, memberships to anything, time shares, or whatever. Just want to hang out with some Jeepers and see some Jeeps.

WHO'S INTERESTED? :D

if anybody wants to google earth the venue the address is 1120 Atando Avenue, Charlotte, NC 28206. it's a scaffolding warehouse/yard on 3+ acres that I manage during the week with a fully fenced-in parking area.

I would certainly be interested, especially having just moved here from Cleveland, Ohio.

EYJ 08-13-2013 01:19 PM

cool, that makes 2.
hopefully some more people will chime in. :)

lake labs 08-13-2013 06:50 PM

count me in !!

MikeOfNC 08-13-2013 09:21 PM

Count me in too. I'm new to Charlotte (about a year now). I'm also a first time Jeep owner.

EYJ 08-13-2013 09:49 PM

great, the more the merrier.

At this point I'm thinking August 31st.
That way we can squeeze a Jeep roundup before Labor Day.

there's a potential URE trip brewing in another thread, so I'm watching that too.

lake labs 08-14-2013 10:43 AM

i'm open timewise, i'd go with the general consensus on a time but my original thoughts either 10am - so everybody could do other things that afternoon or evening, OR 6pm - so the sun would be down at bit and not as blazing.

I'm also game for August 24th if it works out better, LakeLabs wouldn't be able to make the 31st.

OR WOULD A SUNDAY AFTERNOON WORK BETTER FOR EVERYBODY????

EYJ 08-15-2013 11:27 AM

I wanted to start a poll for date/time but I don't see an option for that on this forum.

lake labs 08-15-2013 12:26 PM

I could do the 24th or Sunday. EYJ, i work in Huntersville, on 115. at MB Mercedes, stop in some day.

nerraw117 08-15-2013 03:56 PM

im on call the 24th weekend. for me would have to be the 31st.

I'll do that, I'm about a mile from there - I've seen your red JK there with the white windshield decal. I drove the YJ by there about 3:30 today taking my daughter to the dentist - just got back.

webbjeep 08-17-2013 07:36 AM

Absolutely. :thumb:

webbjeep 08-17-2013 10:36 AM

Being the last one to jump in to the event, it would be easier for us if we either did 10 am on Saturday, or even Sunday afternoon. I don't want to be the difficult one, but we would really love to be involved, but sadly already have plans back here in Morganton that Saturday evening. If it doesn't work for everyone tho, it's ok. We will just have to catch the next one.

EYJ 08-17-2013 10:52 AM

Charlotte Meet/Greet - August 31st 10AM
 
That sounds good to me.
And it'll leave everybody's afternoon/evening open.

I'm going to post this in the events calendar and link this thread.
edit - event calendar post is pending mod approval - eric

AUGUST 31st - 10:00 am!!!! :dance:

EYJ... I have been trying the link to go ahead and register for the event, but every time I click on it while using my ipad, it tries to more me download the app...AGAIN. and then it tells me I need to log in... Am I missing a step somewhere? My wife and I are planning on coming down, and hopefully bringing a couple of other Jeepers with us!

it works when I do it (from my pc), IDK what's happening with your ipad - just go to the NC4x4.com site and click on events then on august 31st on the calendar and you should see it. otherwise it'll hopefully show up on the calendar link here too once the mod/admin approves it.

otherwise, that sounds great - hopefully we'll get a decent turn out and everybody enjoys it.
