May 8, 2021 – Rubicon Gladiator Build Day

So one of our club members who is currently deployed and serving our country bought a brand new Rubicon Gladiator before he left. Now, we have a box trailer full of parts and accessories that he’s purchased and had shipped while he’s gone. As a thanks for his service, we’re going to get together and put all this stuff on his Jeep before he comes home! So join us if you can, many hands make light work!

Build is done, check out the video!

2020 Club Meeting and Christmas Party

So on Saturday December 19, 2020 we’ll do our first club meeting since the whole COVID-19 pandemic started. We’ll meet all the Governor’s requirements for having a gathering as we’ll do it in the garage where it’s a large open space, etc. In the past we’ve had some issues with separating the meeting from the party so this year we will do something different.

The club meeting will be from 5:00-6:00pm, and the Christmas party will start at 6:30pm. That’ll allow us to have different agendas and make sure we get the club business attended to.
