I wen to this show 2 years ago and it was really neat..90% little jeeps and the rest were old willys , kaisers, fc,s and a few FSJ-I think panther was there too.
It would be great to have a convoy go up this year. We could meet on the CT/MA line maybe at a certain time and then go together up there. Maybe we can even meet up with the guys from CT jeep and do it that way.
It was really neat seeing 20-30 baby jeeps with their boggers and 6" lifts on them all traveling down the highway in line o the way up there. They have raffles and prizes, and ugliest jeep contest...all kinds of stuff! I'll see if I can find some of the picks I took when I was there. I'll be going and thought it would be cool if some more of us go also.
The Great American Jeep Rally – 2004
Baystate Jeepers, Inc. proudly presents its 4th Annual Great American Jeep Rally on Sunday, September 19, 2004 from 9 AM to 4 PM in their NEW LOCATION at the Spencer, MA Fairgrounds. (Rain or Shine!)
The Rally brings in 500 Jeeps of all types, as well as 1,000 spectators to raise money for charity and continue its efforts in supporting the NorthEast Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs (NEA4WDC).
This year, the North American Wolf Foundation, Inc. of Ipswich, MA will benefit from portions of the proceeds, as will the NEA4WDC. These charitable donations are the four-wheelers way to give back to the wilderness, which our sport uses and enjoys with their families as Off-Highway Recreation.
Join us for another fun filled day of the best and worst Jeeps around New England. As always, it is limited to strictly Jeeps. Any Jeep, regardless of condition, to include: off-highway, street, military, antique, custom, and so on, may be entered and trophies will be awarded for selected categories. There will be a “best of show” trophy this year, so wax it or not, but bring your Jeeps on in.
The newest 2004 and 2005 Jeeps will be displayed for your viewing enjoyment. Learn about Jeeps and talk with their owners. Check out the latest in aftermarket gear. See what works for these Jeepers and take those ideas home with you!
Participate in or watch the events and competitions. Win raffle prizes. Visit our Jeep supply vendors (new and used), and purchase tee shirts and other “cool Jeep stuff”. Food vendors will be on site.
The members of the Baystate Jeepers, Inc. and the member clubs in the Northeast Association of 4WD Clubs have been enjoying Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation (OHRV) on permission grated land over the last several years. These clubs and others like them have removed literally tons of illegally dumped garbage from our natural areas. Our members practice the principles of tread lightly®, respect private property and always leave with more than they go in with.
Please join us on Sunday, September 19th at the Spencer Fairgrounds, conveniently off Route 9 in Spencer, MA from 9AM to 4 PM. For more information,
please e-mail: Sharon Perron at: firstname.lastname@example.org
or Pat Charron at: email@example.com
To help make this day a grand adventure, you can volunteer to work a couple of hours by contacting: Martin Chacon at: Martin.Chacon@espn.com
So come on by, stay and play awhile.
