2010 Jeepers for Charity AND Show and Shine!!
For nearly ten years TOJC has been putting on their March annual Show & Shine...

Last year, a new Jeep themed charity event was introduced with the intent on bringing together the Jeep communities surrounding Central Florida, united as comrades to support the lives of those affected by cancer!

... This year we build on that ...

Attendees can choose to participate in just the Free Show & Shine, the team themed Jeepers For Charity event, or BOTH!

For those interested in participating in the Jeepers For Charity part of the event, here is how it works:
* Raise as much as you can and present it at registration ( donation sheet)
* 100% of the proceeds go to benefit the American Cancer Society
* Make checks payable to the American Cancer Society

* Teams consist of 4 Jeeps per team
* Formed at registration
* Clubs can have unlimited amount of teams
* Do not have to be from same club
* If you do not already have a team of 4 organized prior to registration, we will place you on a team. This will be a great opportunity to meet new Jeep enthusiasts in your area

* Drive as a caravan thru 4 scenic checkpoints circling Central Florida
* Timer starts when the first Jeep in caravan leaves starting line
* Timer stops when the last Jeep in caravan crosses line at the checkpoint
* At each checkpoint, teams go 'off the clock' to to test their Jeeping skills in a fun filled Jeep themed mini-challenge to earn bonus time deductions that will help improve their final score

* Event Winner (team)
* Most funds raised (individual)
* Club Participation
* ...and more...

Please visit 2010 Jeepers For Charity - Orlando Jeep Club for a listing of complete details!

***ATTENTION Club Coordinators/Presidents***
Last year, yours and the neighboring Jeep communities raised over $2500 for the American Cancer Society and had an awesome time doing it at the first ever JFC.

Ok everyone, I have some new things for you all that I want you to keep in mind!
The event is THIS SATURDAY!!!
Registration opens at 9am. This is VERY IMPORTANT for 2 reasons. 1. The first 100 Jeeps get a free color dash plaque to remember the event. 2. THERE WILL BE HOT BREAKFAST!! oh yeah! So don't worry about scrambling to make a big meal, you can pick it up at the event!!

Ok, so maybe you want to get there a little later, sleep in, and just participate in the Show N Shine. That's cool as well! The same company that makes the breakfast and awesome lunch, will also be making fried OREO and Snicker desserts!!! Oh baby... so delicious!

I also should tell you I have a new CB, CB Antenna, and gift certificates from Channel 23 CB Shop that are sitting in my kitchen. My wife has already threatened me with various things if I "forget" to bring them to the show! :) J/K

Ultra Luster will be there again this year making a dirty Jeep clean before your very eyes without water!

Bounce house for the kids has been confirmed!

Colonial Photo and Hobby will be on scene with a rock crawling course perfect for R/C rock crawling rigs!

JeepersDen has some special surprises in store for us, including a display of skills from their championship rock crawling rig!

The trophies look awesome for the show and shine event as well as the trophies for the Charity event!

The course maps and computer tracking software for the Jeep Relay event were finalized tonight! The course that I helped drive/time has some of the most beautiful scenery that I have ever seen in Florida. There is even one spot that is the highest point in central Florida. On a clear day you can see the Vehicle Assembly building at the Kennedy Space Center!

Be there on Saturday! If you are not, you will be missing out on one of the most amazing Jeep events of the year!!
