It was nice and well received by the town last year. Were headed to Rand V for the Jeeping 4 A Cure Benefit.

They had a great turnout - I did not do a count, but I am sure they had 50 or more quads/Rzrs/bikes and about 1/2 dozen Jeeps in the parade, plus some law enforcement folks as escorts and the local high school jazz band.

There were a fair number of folks standing along the parade route, including a crowd in front of the Hen House that cheered for GLFWDA when they recognized the door magnets on our Jeep. After the parade, there was an organized ride over to the Motorsport area but we passed on that. By then, Jonathon and I had spent Friday topless on the trails in Atlanta doing our maintenance thing, plus the 1.5 hour ride down to St Helen that morning....we were not really in the mood to eat dust and get more sunburnt than we already were. We did take a quick trip to the rock courses before heading to CVS for some sunblock on our way back to Atlanta, but didn't stick around to play.

I love it; the High School Band uses the Browning Firearms logo (almost), lol.

Thanks for posting pics too Paul! Wish I could have made it there, with the short notice we had other plans. Did you get to talk to someone about that?

Not directly - but now that I know who the organizers are I realized that I have already worked with them on a couple of other things so I'll contact them and see if we can't do a better job of either getting them on the 4x4 schedule early enough for other events to plan around, or get them a source for a calendar of 4x4 events that they can plan around, like the one Renegade maintains over on gl4x4.com.

Well I guess I now know that at least one person looks at that list :)

I feel like there is no possible way this is true. None, what so ever. I could see them screaming at you to get out, but no cheers.
