First I want to thank Mark (Mir207) for bringing it up and putting it into motion. Our last one was almost a year ago and we're due for another big get-together.

Let's make this a brainstorming thread. We'll need volunteers for planning and organizing. The last one was a little too big to handle by myself :D.

I'll try and update this first thread to reflect any decisions or directions for the meet.
Mark your calender!

May 23, 24 (Saturday, Sunday) 2009

Hungry Valley OHV, Gorman, California

Camping is first come first serve. We will try and see if we can take over Aliklik campground. It's right next to the 4x4 training area. If you can get there early, please try and stake out an area for us.

This area has pit toilets, but does not have water so plan accordingly.

The main CB communication channel will be channel 5. FRS 7-31

This is a great chance to have a swapmeet of FJ items. Take a look at this thread: http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/socal-region/86941-california-meet-greet-swap-meet-thread.html

Johnson Valley Rocks:rocker:
If Johnson Valley is an option, I'd be willing to lead a stock 4x4/easy run for any newbies. I'll be out there this weekend and can scooe some of it out.

MAF if its a day thing and MAF ok's if. But if its a camp out Hungry Valley. I joke about it but seriously people that live out side of OC are starting to get annoyed that every M & G is in the OC area. It was brought up a few times at the ventura meet.

OC? We've never had a meet in the OC.

Silverwood Lake sounds pretty good. That's one option. I'll start to amend the first post with possible locations.

Keep it coming!

Re: Official Meet and Greet V Planning thread

You're right Eric. We could make a Summit West or something like that... Better not, hate to have to get lawyers and draft up a corporation just to handle that!

Re: Official Meet and Greet V Planning thread

I just saw the activities list. The BBQ cook off got my mouth watering!! And I'm not a bad BBQ cook by the way.

Don't have to put this on the list but I think it would be interesting to have a HORN competition. I got the idea from this thread title http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forums/stereo-electronics/79493-horn-battle.html#post1292602.

Hehehhehe.....the loudest one wins by audience vote :D

Does Trail Teams still exist? If so, how do we get them there?
