Planning on it. Have made it to a few and they are for a good cause and a good time. Could be cold....for the tent campers!

Hoping to attend. Flying back from the east coast on the 6th, so some pre-packing is in order.

Re: Toys for Tots Gorman Dec 7-8

Thanks for the post you guys.

I just confirmed Alan is heading down with the All-terrain Warrior and bringing a bunch of SMB folks. It would be great to see you all again for a great cause!

Here's the details, we rented a BRAND NEW CAMPGROUND!!!!

DECEMBER 7th-8th, 2013
OVER-NIGHTER



Well its that time a year again, Yet again! It's our 7th year for organizing this and I can't believe how fast time flies. I like to mix things up and always keep the event fresh, so while it's going to be at the Hungry Valley SVRA again, we have exciting news! The State Park has just built a new campground that is not even open to the public yet and we've already reserved it! It's called the Honey Valley Campground and it has all the amenities anyone could want. Fire pit, BBQ's picnic tables, and even an outdoor amphitheater for our Raffle! Again, The campground is near trails for exploration and serves as the gateway to the Los Padres NF.

The Location will be Hungry Valley State Vehicle Recreation Area, Gorman CA Located just north of Los Angeles.

http://ohv.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=1192

The park is large with over 100 mile of trails and there's something for everyone, not just Overlanders. You can ride green sticker dirt bikes, quads and buggies. We want to appeal to a larger spectrum of folks so we can optimize our Toy Drive success!


DATE
  • December 7th, 8th 2013. (First FULLWeekend in December!). Not too close to Christmas and New Years and a far enough from Thanksgiving. Pencil it in now![/*:m:3lssu7ed]

TIME: The ToyDrive is 9am-4pm. Overnight Camping and Day-Use Welcome

FEE's
Day Use - $5 per day
Camping - $10 per night

LOCATION:
http://www.mapquest.com/maps?address...&redirect=true

WHAT IS IT?:
  • So this is how it works. You bring a new unwrapped toy valued at $10 or more to the meet up. You get a raffle ticket for your contribution per toy. PLEASE NOTE: The max tickets you'll receive is 5. Reminder so we're clear and everyone has a fair chance of winning a prize... If you drop off 100 toys , you will not receive 100 tickets. This makes it fair for everyone.

    We also have 2 categories you can win for prizes (See Below). Check out everyones rigs, meet new people and see some you already know. The Marines will hopefully be on site to help out and haul all the donations back to where they need to go. Last year i had to do it all myself and im hoping we don't have to do that again this year.

    FOOD
    We will be providing lunch on site. Around noon we serve up Hotdogs, chips and sodas.

    Note: If you don't want a hotdog and prefer something else, this is a camp out and therefore come prepared with food. Also, bring water and all necessary emergency prep you may need. [/*:m:3lssu7ed]

SCHEDULE
Check in to arrive is 9am. We'll be starting the grilling around NOON and start into the raffle about about 3pm. All on Saturday. The rest of the time, you can drop off toys (if after the raffle, you won't get a chance to win anything), meander around and oogle the rigs and meet fellow off road enthusiasts from all over the www.

Sunday, those who've camped.. there may be a trail run up to Alamo Mountain. More information on this as it becomes available. The trail run will be a scenic and simple route. Nothing hardcore.

Vendors donating to the RAFFLE thus far.

ADVENTURE TRAILERS
SOCAL TEARDROPS
JAK-JAW
TRASHAROO
OVERLAND JOURNAL
TEMBO TUSK
BADLANDS 4X4 ADVENTURES
SIERRA EXPEDITIONS
OUTBACK PROVEN
ARB 4X4 ACCESSORIES
CASCADIA VEHICLE TENTS
JP MAGAZINE

DIRT PARTS INC.

*REMEMBER: You'll get a ticket for each toy you donate up to 5!. If you donate 20, you still get 5!






Trophies & Prizes will be awarded for the following:
  • Most Toys Donated[/*:m:3lssu7ed]
  • Most Distance Traveled To Arrive at the Event[/*:m:3lssu7ed]

Vendors are welcome as long as they're not selling items. In other words, come, show up, pop open your camper, show people stuff, but don't setup a booth and start selling stuff. Our state park Permit will not allow it. Remember, this event is about the kids.. not about unloading goods and making money. Lets keep it that way. Please respect this.

Laws & Safety
http://ohv.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=1234.

Dogs are fine as long as they're on leash at all times and they're cool around people, kiddos and other dogs.

Another way to spread the word...
https://www.facebook.com/events/3082...=create&ref=3#

If you have any questions feel free to contact me via PM or by Email. If you'd like to donate time or resources please PM me as well. Both are listed under my username.

I will be updating this thread as time goes on.

Hope to see everyone there,

It's presently red sticker season in CA until late spring, so you can ride both green and red sticker bikes/quads at Hungry Valley.

Re: Toys for Tots Gorman Dec 7-8

We won't be able to stay overnight but we will stop by to drop off some toys and hangout into the evening. Unfortunately we have some early morning plans on Sunday. But we didn't want to miss this completely. So 6 or 8 hours is better then nothing.
We had a great time last year and we're really looking forward to this year.
See you all there.
Cheers,
John
