I just received this:
December 21, 2010 - For Immediate Release
Off Road Evolution’s JK Experience presented by Falken Tire announces postponement of 2011 JK Experience Challenge.
It is with mixed emotions that the JK Experience regretfully announces the postponement of the JKX Challenge that was scheduled for January 14-15, 2011. We couldn’t be more pleased with the excitement and interest that has been generated for the 2011 JKX Challenge, however, it is because of this amazing response that we have been forced to postpone the JKX Challenge.
The JKX Challenge has been such a Huge Success with sign ups and popularity; we have exceeded the event parameters with the BLM. What this means is, unfortunately we will have to postpone the JKX Challenge until all new permits have been approved for an event of this size, this will take no less than 180 days.
“The bright side… I am choosing to look at postponement in a positive light, said Mel Wade, founder of JK Experience and owner of Off Road Evolution. This event has taken the JK community by surprise. We have over 30 participants, from your everyday weekend warrior to many of your favorite manufacturers and shops from around the country. This is a great event for the Jeep® JK community and this postponement will allow more of your favorite JK manufacturers the opportunity to sign up to be venders; growing the JKX Challenge into something every JK owner will want to attend, in order to see the latest and greatest parts for your favorite vehicle, the Jeep® JK.”
We will continue to keep you updated on the status of our permits and the new date for the JKX Challenge.
All participants that submitted registration paper work for the 2011 JKX Challenge will automatically be registered for the rescheduled event.
We thank you all for your interest and support of the JK Experience and look forward to that excitement and interest building as we move forward with the rescheduling of the JKX Challenge as well as the other two events planned for 2011.
Off Road Evolution’s JK Experience presented by Falken Tire are events that promote and showcase the off-road and on-road capabilities of the Jeep® JK, and in particular the products from the manufacturers that participate and sponsor the events. These events are, by design, intended to be the most demanding and toughest JK only events. A gathering of the top Manufacturers of JK performance parts together with JK enthusiasts.
