Thumbs up

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: sp22@comcast.net
or Pat Charron at: patannch@aol.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.
(All dogs MUST be on leashes at all times, please!)

Please, view and enjoy the photos from the 2003 Jeep Rally at: baystatejeepers.com

Also, visit: http://www.spencerfair.org (for directions),

I've been to the last two or three of these, I know I've seen Panther and Blackjack, and Bob Barry, Chrism ( I think ), and the guy from Christine's in Worcester who does the Grand Wagoneer resto/sales thing, as well as others.

Last year there were prolly something like 200 jeeps there, again mostly baby jeeps but there were several FSJ's a couple of nice M715s, a really nice fully restored M725, a few FC's even.

Definately "THE" local show. I plan to be there.

This is what I've been waiting for! Meeting up and riding together would really be something, an awesome picture too! I'm in W. Mass, plans need to be made!

Now if the family bickering LOL is done there, I was talking with Mikel about doing another southern New England gathering sometime this spring.

I was thinking maybe late April or early May, but I want to get an idea of people's schedules ahead of time. I'd like to involve all the guys/gals from CT, MA, southern VT (hopefully Tyler can get a rig) - and JUST FSJ's of course. We had a pretty good turnout last year, and I think we could make it even better this year.

Yeah, I've been thinking of starting another thread to try and get one organized. I'm sure we could let people from NY come if they wanted! And don't forget about RI, I think Bob would be upset if we didn't invite him!

I think I'll start that new topic now...

Bump... didn't want this to get lost in all the other posts. Hopefully we can get a good-sized group to go to this!
