saturday dec 2 at jeffco fairgrounds (not jeffco stadiums)...yep, this saturday

the 4x4 assoc has had the largest one day drive in denver for the last two years, let's not stop now! show those harley guys and the bronco wives that they ain't got nothing on us! one new toy, unwrapped gets you a crappy hot dog, chips, cookies, a soda, and comraderie with a bunch of other 4x4 folks.

note: this year the state raffle vehicle will not be raffled at the denver drive, it is being raffled at the colorado springs drive, also on the same day...but you don't want to watch someone win a heep anyway

If my truck is back together with no issues, I'll be there. Unless I have to help a mutual friend pick up a truck he may be buying.

Truck is done, and our friend is passing due to the amount of rust, dents and holes.

Looks like I will be there. Now lets see if I can increase the numbers by adding a daughterofromer or two.

We may skip the caravan and show up a bit after they get there.

thanks to everyone that came out and donated toys to the event. last i saw 2 of the 2 1/2 tons were full and the other was pretty close to full! :cheers:

great turnout again even though the weather (as usual) wasn't cooperative. some folks even got time to play on the ramp and the teeter totter. the kids loved the rock wall and ball toss. and this year, we didn't run out of food ;) .

best turnout by rising sun in the four years the event's been held, kudos to rising sun for helping out the rugra....kids :beer:

just heard from shelley surface (pres of the assoc). an extremely appreciative and excited man from newport beach california was the winner of the raffle vehicle. he, ironically, is a member of a scrambler club.

Aw, that's the least I can do.
Lin had to hide the toys we donated so I wouldn't open them and start playin' with 'em on while waiting in the drop off line.
Good to see Rising Sun at the event. It helped break up the monotony of Jeep-Jeep-Jeep-Jeep-Jeep.

Ige, did you see Dave Bayer over at the Rock Stomper booth? I was glad to see him -- it's been a couple of years. He still has his built Jeep and is wrenching over at Lithia Chrysler.

My daughter got a nice picture on Santa's lap, and told him all the stuff she wanted for Christmas (one of which is an Easy Bake Oven). My son was too scared of Santa to sit on his lap. He did love the ball toss game over at the National Guard area though! He also enjoyed the martial arts demonstration, once I told him it was just like the Power Rangers.

Funny! Charlie didn't even get that far -- he refused to go anywhere near Santa.
