Jeepin for Josie in Jersey!

April 2, - Wharton, NJ - 10AM - We're Jeepin for Josie!

If you dont know what this is for read this.
https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=42309

Camping should be available from after work on Friday the First and breaking camp on Sunday the 3rd for those with a long drive ahead. Campground of choice is the Batona Campground. For anyone who made last year's JKO camping trip, this is the same place.

Go here for info on the camping. This is going to be a good time!!!
https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=43824

If you need directions, look up "Carranza Memorial" on google maps. When you get to the Carranza Memorial, the entrance to this campsite is across the street about 50 yds down on the other side of the road. There will be signage at the entrance to mark it.

Poker Run Event is open to all licensed drivers.
Entry fee $20/vehicle and 5/passenger.
Prizes: Check post #2 for a running count of prizes.
There will be a 2WD loop that may cross some sandy roads, but nothing that would require a 4WD vehicle
There will be a 4WD loop that requires 4WD and at least one recovery point.
Registration starts at 10 AM
Run will start at 11 AM and run until the last player gets back to the starting line. Leave no rig behind!

Camping Camping is $20 per person for the entire weekend. See Camping thread for info on this and payment info.
https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=43824
Kids under 12 ride/camp for free.
No alcohol at the campsite - sorry. its a state forest so that's more a state law than a rule.


Last April we were at this campground by midafternoon Friday and didn't head out until late afternoon on Sunday, so we should have plenty of time to do a Sunday Run over to Forked River.
Volunteers have already stepped up to take the lead on that one (Thanks Chris & Kyle!)

X2 - You can be my wingman anytime, Maverick.

(Do I get bonus points for the Top Gun reference?)

We will certainly be able to find you a seat for the poker run if you make the trip!

Actually, there is a new website (not yet online) that will be handling the donations. It seems we have a whole new set of hoops to jump through now that the paperwork for NPO (Non-Profit Organization) tax exempt status is being finalized. I'll be posting more about this as info becomes available to me. We're still at a very liquid point in the process and I want to ensure everyone is on the same page.

Tee shirts are selling out quick! Only a few left in XL.

Once they're gone; they're gone.

We're doing one run and done on these, so if you wanted one, you'd better GIT-R-DUN

WOW

What a great event. So many people stepped up and did their thing that I'm having a tough time keeping them straight.

The Johnsons
Without your help, none of this would have gone off so smoothly. From firewood to campsites, Poker station location planning to your entire family's fetish with apples - which I see nothing wrong with! - you were the glue that held this event together. As Sunday's events proved, you truly are "first responders" be it to a medical emergency in the woods, or a Jeeper asking for a little help. Truly good people, all of ya.

Ain't Skeered:
Dude, the JFJ towels were a huge success. That little bit extra was what we needed to hit our target for 2K. Can't possibly thank you enough. The one you did special for me will be getting a special place in my house. I seriously might frame it. That was really a cool thing to do. Not to mention the gift cert you brought for a Poker Run Prize!

Wardy:
There are several universal truths in life. Befriend a baker has been added to the list. Your pastries and donuts and danishes and cinnamon buns and other assorted goodies were EVERYWHERE this weekend and I couldn't have been happier about it! Thanks again for adding to the list of Poker Run prizes. I'm sure your shop will be descended upon at least once this summer by a herd of Jeeps.

Group Leaders:
All things considered, y'all done good. No one made a reservation with the Wharton Hotel for the night, the "bad break" of the day turned out to be perfectly ok and there was even a turnaround or two to honor the absent Dead End Doug! All in all, the run worked out far better than I ever expected it would. That couldn't and wouldn't have been the case without our intrepid leaders. Hat's off, Lady & Gents. You are all a credit to our community. And Jay, FWIW? When you told me that the Poker Run loop could be completed in under 2 hours, I didn't think it would entail rolling down Batsto River Road at 40mph I think a few peeps in your group needed their dental work replaced when they got back because they shook some fillings loose

Card Station Tenders:
Believe me when I say that I know exactly how boring it was to twiddle your thumbs all day long while waiting for groups of wheelers to roll through and then leave you all by your lonesome again. Karma must have smiled down on this crowd, because I laughed my head off when Ross ended up winning the evap skid with a straight when he pulled his at the showdown. Wanted to make sure everyone got to see him pull his cards so there would be no questions about what sort of hand the guy who had been handling the decks all day could come up with so he goes and draws a Jack high straight at the Pic-a-lilly in front of everybody.


I'll go through the threads in the Northeast Section an get some "best of" pics posted up here for all to enjoy.

I have a few more places to pickup cash before I can do a "That's My FINAL Answer" tally, but the initial fundraising goal was 2,000.00. Thanks to several VERY generous donations from both Ain't Skeered and The Pic - a - Lilly Bar & Restaurant, we not only hit that mark easily, but we exceeded it by more than $200.00! Everyone involved there should be damned proud of that. I certainly know I am.

At last count, we will be donating 2,260.00 to Josie. That's nothing short of amazing and it is likely to rise a bit more. The Jeeping community really is a helluva thing when we get behind something like this.


EDIT:
I'm an idiot and forgot all about the proceeds from the shirt sales prior to the event that were still sitting in my paypal account! We are WAAAAAY over 2K on this event ... Actual donation will look more like 3,000.00+


You Jeeple amaze me more and more every day.
