Other than cans and the odd Bigfoot... What else can one shoot here?

Meant as a pun or not...funny.
The open carry was toolriffic. C'mon, the camo pants (necessary, I'm sure) wasn't even the right jungle pattern and the holster rig..please.

I met better people and got in more trouble minus the "summit".

I'm putting tank treads, battle armor, a turret and a "LOOK AT ME" sticker across my windshield so people with give me the attention my parents never gave me...please. *sarcasm, for the slow*

Re: Re-thinking '09 attendance

Wow, I have been to both of the Summits and never run into anyone carrying a side arm on there hip...Where the hell was I ....I missed all of the fun damn it. I could care less if you carry a weapon or not, if you decide to show it off at least let me in on the presentation, I might learn a thing or two
Why don't we work as a group and make this one awesome off road event
I'll be there

Well when you wear camo, it's hard to see you.

F that!!! They go on blast when we all got back and while fresh in our minds put to words items that worked...and did not. FEELINGS were hurt and were told to put it on hold...IE shut the heck fire up...

The objective of the open forum is to assist other in the same boat (sorry, FJ) by pointing out success and failure, so they can make an informed choice on the matter. I've had plenty of ideas i added here. Not all agreed, but took it as a marker for their needs or projects.

I can only assume that there was some sort of advance notification that said policy was in place? I'd have a problem if I paid to be at an event then a such a policy was announced after I had paid, travelled and spent money on accommodations then get Diane Feinstein as a trail leader, you'd have to lock up your firearm or go home? No fun there...
Yes, everyone knew well in advance. It was in the printed literature for the events for the Jambo.

For M4W....it was in their rule sheets.

Re: Re-thinking '09 attendance

Jerry, I appreciate your comments.

If you were carrying, I did not know and that is my point. Keep it to yourself.

In my opinion, if the summit is neutral or supports open carry side arms in the tent area, my family is not attending. That would not be the kind of event I would want to be a part of. No plans to attend the AZ events either.

Side arms on trails is another issue all together and If I saw it on a trail, we would just leave, no big deal.

Not realy going to stress about it, will wait and see how things shake out.

I am not against guns or gun ownership, I grew up hunting with my dad.

Re: Re-thinking '09 attendance

I attended last years event with my two kids that were 5 and 7 at the time and we all had a blast. I did see someone carry a sidearm and I personally just though to myself "why"...I get that its because you can and the law says you can....its also another way of saying "look at me."

Beyond that I have never felt more safe or in more of a family environment, it was kinda liike being in Maybury. Lots of kids running around and having a great time with virtually no late night wildness and my room was just behind the main tent at the Best Western.

The vendors, Trail Team, and attendees were all cool! It was great to put a face to the names of so many that I have conversed with on this forum. If you missed the previous Summits I highly suggest not missing this one, you never know if there is going to be another. The trails are not hard and the area is incredible, just take a look at some of the photos that have been posted.

I have a room booked but I am more than likely going to drop it and skip this years event. The economy is what it is and we as a family have decided to make one trip this year and it is going to be something different than last years.

The guys that put this event on do a great job and have a big task in front of them this year. I sincerely hope that Toyota helps out in any way possible since there is no announcement of a Trail Team happening this year. Support what you love!

Guess I need to slow down.

Funny these issues are brought up now. They were brought up the week after, along with other short comings. This was shut down by mods that happen to be a part of the summit that got their feelings hurt.

Still waiting on my non profit ID receipt.

I can be asked my opinion via PMs but $% forbid in a public forum, truth be told before people pay to go.
Open carry, CCW, guns in general all are great in the correct atmosphere.
I take it if the event was in Japan, you'd show up in a gee, headband and a samurai sword. AT least wear spurs and a hat next time cowboy...

Ask me via PM about vendors getting the short end of the stick, or trail assignments, along with a host of other items.

I'm not just playing negative Nancy here there were great things about the trips....i'm just not wasting cash on the parts I didn't enjoy.
