HUGE kudos to the E.O.'s for the 2009 JK Summerfest!

PERFECT DAMN DAY!

Tons of vendors, great looking Jeeps, and smiling faces! The weather was PERFECT. The food was GREAT. The raffle prizes were AMAZING! The band was LOUD! (if you went you know what I mean!)

I can't thank the Event Organizers enough for all their hard work, dedication, and talent it took to pull off such a flawless day. There wasn't one hitch, not one unhappy person, and not one break down in events. The raffle was great - I won 2 front Warrior tube doors and axle sleeves. Now I need to buy the rears!

Congratulations to all the other prize winners, you left with some great great great prizes!

Major thanks to
  • PUDDLZ and his wife for introducing me to the other key players that set up the event.
  • Hatch at Safari Straps for not only installing my full cage kit but also installing all my grab handles and fire extinguisher. CLASS ACT!
  • Bond @ Outlaw Offroad for the killer prices on my purchases that day: full roll cage, Smittybilt rock sliders, Xenon fender flares.
  • Currie for taking an hour out of his day and explaining to me why Currie differentials are the kings of the trail.
  • The cats over at the Smittybilt tent for explaining the differences between the new and old slider style they offer (I ended up buying the new style.)
  • The people selling beer, yay beer!
  • The awesome raffle ticket crew for dealing with me while I tried to decide where to place the 500 raffle tickets I bought.
  • Last but not least VEGASSMAN (Chris), a long time buddy who made the trip out from Las Vegas to make an appearance with his silver 4 door.
All in all a GREAT day! I'll be back next year!

Hey....thank you guys for coming out and supporting. The prizes could not all have gone to better people.

I'm sorry I didn't get to spend more time meeting and greeting, but it was quite a day.

And again, a big thank you to all the vendors who showed up, supported, and donated to make this event what is was. Over 500 people in attendance throughout the day!

Dirty's Minions don't officially exist. They are a myth, a bedtime story, a whispered rumor. They are ghosts.

Thanks to the JKO guys for putting this together!

Deal.

I honestly had found the flight I was gonna take, car rental, and was gonna wing it to this event this year and show up w/ out telling anyone I was coming. I figured Rooster would help me find out who is who.

Then I realized it was the same day as my pool party and figured that would be poor form to miss your own party.

Next year though. Definitely. Hell, maybe sooner. When's the next big west coast event?

It really was a great event. There was obviously a LOT of time and effort put into it to make it as successful as it was. It seemed to go off without a hitch too.

I'm just mad that I didnt catch on to the whole raffle thing earlier. Man, there were a ton of great products going. I still dont know what the pink raffle tickets were for that I bought off the cute girl who was walking booth to booth. I think I got taken!

But seriously, thanks for letting me be a part of this and good jobs to all those involved!
