Title: Registration Deadline Extended, Find out why
Post by: Marti Pugh on March 14, 2008, 11:34:58 am

United Four Wheel Drive Associations will be extending the deadline for registration to the Wheel-in to March 24, 2008

UFWDA has had several questions from members who are concerned about Camp Jeep and the return to Oak Ridge. I think it is safe to say that Camp Jeep will not be returning to Oak Ridge in July 2008. I am not an executive with Daimler Chrysler, however, I imagine it is too late to get an event of that size together in a few months.

In order to best serve our members and to give them an opportunity to wheel at Oak Ridge, we will extend the registration. UFWDA wants to give all of our members and non-members the opportunity to attend the event who may have been waiting to hear about Camp Jeep. UFWDA understands the concerns with the members about vacation time etc. and does not want them to miss an opportunity for an event that is probably not occurring this summer.

 
Thanks
Marti

Marti,
I think you are making a safe assumption about Camp Jeep.  In all the years we have worked this event, the longest we had to wait for a "public announcement" that Camp Jeep was coming was the end of January.  While we all know that the trails portion of Camp Jeep could be pulled off with less than a week's notice (HA HA HA), the rest of Camp Jeep could not be assembled and staffed in time. ;D

How about this...register and attend the Wheel-in, and if Camp Jeep decides to come back, then wheel at Oak Ridge 3 months later.  Nothing wrong with visiting the same place twice in one year, right Ben?



BTW, still no official word on Camp Jeep.  (I am just going to make this part of my signature)

I am glad to be a part of an organization that makes decisions to be inclusive... well thought out.
