Wrangler Forum So Cal Meet 'N Greet Summer TurdFest 2017

DATES FOR THE 2017 SUMMER (TURDFEST!) MEET AND GREET ARE JULY 28-30​

Unfortunately @turdhurdler is unable to coordinate this year's Summer TurdFest so with his support and blessing, this year's event will be organized and sponsored by JPI and The @NotARubicon!

Dates of this year's Meet 'N Greet are July 28-30 and as usual, base camp will be the Hannah Flat Camp Area in Fawnskin near Big Bear Lake. For information on Hanna Flat and to reserve your campsite, see this link: Hanna Flat Info & Reservations

Reservations are on a FIRST COME/FIRST SERVE basis.

Many members arrive either Thursday evening or Friday throughout the day. The main scheduled runs are on Saturday and there will be a night-run Friday night. Saturday evening there will be a pot-luck dinner, raffle and fun giveaways at base-camp.

We welcome members from all skill and vehicle build levels, from factory stock to full build status. Runs will range in difficulty from "Moderate" to "Difficult".

Pot-Luck Dinner:

Thank you to @Jerry Bransford for coordinating the traditional pot-luck dinner. For info on the pot-luck and to let everyone know what you are bringing, please see the Pot-Luck Dinner thread here: 2017 Saturday Night Pot Luck Dinner



Raffle/Giveaway/Fun:

The (FREE!) raffle/prizes, fun, and games will begin outside camping space #67 Saturday night at 8:30PM and will go on until the last free prize is given away or until the neighbors complain.


Standard rules & requirements for this event:

1: NO DRINKING ON THE TRAILS
2: Spare tire within 2" of tires on rig.
3: CB radio on board (HAM optional)
4: Recovery points front and rear of vehicle.

As a reminder: Off roading is an inherently risky hobby and stuff can, and too often, does happen. While we will not leave anyone behind, each member is ultimately responsible for their own well being on the trail and at camp. If one should get physical damage to their vehicle or person, the volunteers helping with the Meet 'N Greet are not responsible for anyone else's actions beyond their own.


Scheduled trail runs:
See each run for additional vehicle requirements.
There are no bathrooms, 7-11's or Starbucks on the trails so bring food, snacks, water and toilet paper.

You may want to rethink that lol. Mom probably wouldn't be happy with you taking the weekend off to go Jeeping and leaving her at home alone with a new baby. :eek: :rofl:
