You are right, I was waiting for someone to say that. Everyone would like it close to them but let's be realistic. Central to everyone is ideal as long add the local has everything that is needed.

Divide the country in half. Each year, alternate the event between the respective centers of the east region and the west region....Like one year in Tennesee, and the next year in Utah. I drive a JGC, but folks would be like rag dolls after driving 2500 miles in a Wrangler or a CJ! Been there...Done That. NEVER AGAIN!!!

Re: Jeep Garage Event?

To do it scientifically and beyond objections, the board leaders here should take a look at the forum membership by state, by IP addresses, etc. Then divide the country in several regions with approximately equal membership, while also accounting for any existing geographical features of interest to the community (mountainous terrain and/or racetracks etc). A region would be chosen to host, committees would be formed and delegted to organize the event from accommodation to sponsorship to side shows etc.

The first event should probably be piggy-backed onto a larger event like the MOPAR meet, which would give the region selected to host the second annual event a year to organize themselves. The region hosting the first event would still prepare the Jeep-specific event(s) and interface with the MOPAR organizers but they would be acting on an existing framework. Later, they would pass on the knowledge to the next team from another Region.

Regions would rotate. Events would be voted in by members here. Etc. But this would be a suggestion. Of course we could also spin a bottle and flip a coin and pick up a location based on the city of the next person to win over 100,000,000 at a Powerball / Mega Million. There's many ways...

This sounds fair.

Re: Jeep Garage Event?

Ok, so I'll give my 2cents in this thread also. I think it means absolutely nothing where the majority of JG members reside if they're not the one's that are willing to show up to an event. We go through this several times a year...EVERY year...and usually get 50 or less interested people in a gathering. Not so good out of 45K members. I think it should be centrally located to the people that actually want and would show up to a gathering.

Really no point in doing it in a location based on the members map if those people won't show up, have no interest, aren't on anymore, no longer have a Jeep....you get the point! It needs to be done in a location based on the folks that want this to happen and where they would be willing to travel to.

As usual, I would love to see this come together, but we shall see.

Re: Jeep Garage Event?

Somebody mentioned piggy backing onto other major events-- If we hit Detroit's Woodward Dream Cruise maybe we could get Chevy and Marlon to come out of their shells for a quick round of applause. Maybe we convince the organizers to give the JG crew a slot set aside for its members to cruise together. A couple buddies w JKUs and I plan to do Woodward next year (heads up Chevy/Marlon).

Going regional/rotating every year, or multiple events per year might be an option. Perhaps the MOPAR gathering in Carlisle, PA around July/August for an east coast option. Maybe some of the Good Guys stuff in CA.


This is a great idea in general. Let's make it happen.

Re: Jeep Garage Event?

The woodward cruise idea is good but it might be difficult to find sufficient parking depending on how many people attend of course. But it would be sweet to have a line of Jeep roam down woodward instead of my lonely SRT
