    Now that seems a bit harsh ...

    JEEP RALLY FOR LIFE TO BENEFIT THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY

    Jeep Rally for Life - Troy OH May 3rd
    Jeep Rally for Life - Relay for Life, Troy, Ohio May 2nd, registration from 8-9:00AM at Erwin's Chrysler Jeep - Last minutes details

    Wouldn’t a Saturday like today be great for next week – rain in the AM for more mud and then sun shine!

    Wednesday Evening- Build the playground!
    Latest word from the Fairgrounds people
    • They will NOT need an extra bobcat
    • Meet around 5:00 or 5:30 PM at the fairgrounds or come whenever you can

    Friday Evening!
    • Those who want can come to the fairgrounds to offer rides on the playground to Relayers. We will take one of our donation buckets w/us so we can collect more money for the Relay. We probably want to do this between 6 – 7:30 or so.
    • If you want to setup a table at Erwin’s on Friday, I think that can be arranged if it is after 6:00 PM or so

    Saturday Morning!
    • We hope to have Relay T-shirts available for those who will be playground guides so when you register, let us know you are helping
    • When we return to Erwins, we will need volunteers to run the different games and all of the clubs have volunteered
    • If you know of any good games for children that can be played in the parking lot, please volunteer those ideas and materials, if possible. We will try to get the bowling pins again for the tire roll but we need more. Call us w/questions or ideas 937 360 9592

    Keep checking back for more details

    lol. I didn't mean it to sound harsh. I'm sorry.

    I just meant it doesn't really have much info about what it is.

    Even after reading yours I'm a little confused.

    So this is a Relay for Life event, but with Jeeps?

    And how are the jeeps going to be applied? An offroad course of some sort I presume? Or is there more of a place to place rally type thing?

    I have not been before, but know the organizers and some of the club sponsers. I have looked at the pictures and exchanged emails.

    AND I've met you, so I can understand why YOU are confused ... LOL, HA!

    YES, Cancer Relay For Life Event for Jeeps!
    I'll be walking in a local event in June!
    (in our county ... Willie's Warriors ... I'll take donations $$$)
    (Willie and I met over his Mud Boggin' 70's Blazer in the 80's, neighbors and friends from then on, been wheeling together with our IH Scouts as far as the UP, back then ... he is in tough shape now, but fighting hard!)

    YES, offroad course built at Fairgrounds!

    Rally, ONLY in the sense of caravans into the event and between event locations, like a parade, I guess!? Not a car road rally event.

    Just a note to put on the calendar
    I am also waiting on more DETAILS!
    (they have an email address if people need more info and an email update service, I already signed up for it)

    THANKS for your interest, others will benefit from our exchange.

    I love you Doug!


    We always participate in the Relay for Life up north because of my aunt. I wouldn't mind checking this out.

    Unfortunatly, plans are already made for that weekend. Sounds like a neat twist to the Relay.

    You're GREAT too, OZ!

    I'll let you know how it goes!

    Thought I would post it here because there are SOME lower MI and OH and IN folks that scan the board.

    Thanks!

    Now for the rest of the story ... from IFWDA 4XNews

    Jeep Rally For Life Meets and Exceeds Goals

    American Cancer Society Relay for Life

    Over 130 Jeeps at Erwin’s Chrysler/Jeep and the Miami County
    Fairgrounds in Troy, OH
    goal: more than the 115 of last year
    $5,000 raised in one day in the middle of fi nancial bad times! Oh,
    we do have expenses coming out of that money but we raised
    more than last year
    goal: raise more than last year ($4,000) and more per person
    Two people spoke to the rally about cancer. The American Cancer
    Society president for Miami County, Gail McCreight, and Miami
    County Patient Navigator Robin Supinger. They informed us that
    folks at the Relay for Life fi nd Saturday morning to be extra fun
    now that the Jeeps add so much (some participants have been
    there all night and the track has someone walking at all times).
    Gail said they start spreading the word, “The Jeeps are coming,
    the Jeeps are coming!”
    The rally of 120+ Jeeps to the fairgrounds announced to all
    observers that we are part of Relay for Life because many Jeepers
    held their signs out their windows. The Troy police provided great
    help. Thank you!
    goal: increase the amount of education about cancer prevention
    and availability of services in the state of Ohio; increase the
    interaction with Relay for Life
    Children had their area to play, color, compete in races, and raffl e
    items
    goal: more for the kids to do
    The rainy days last week gave us an opportunity to fi nd amazing
    people who made the playground possible. The show stopper we
    faced was that we had no way to get a backhoe over the race track
    and we needed it to build the playground. The rain made the track
    soft and we had no way to prevent the backhoe making trenches
    in the track.
    Along came a guy that John and I meet in a restaurant in
    Beavercreek last year (we both had our Jeeps in the parking lot
    and of course, we had to talk). Last Tuesday, Kyle Tirpack was
    sharing with us some of his pictures from Moab and when we
    started talking about the Rally situation he said, “Let me see what
    I can do.” Well, don’t tell Kyle you have a problem unless you
    want it solved!!! He used his semi/fl at bed to pickup and deliver
    six steel plates to the fairgrounds. How does someone just get on
    the phone and fi nd highway type steel plates? The Miami County
    fairgrounds had Scott Black and his backhoe available and we built
    a “bridge” across the race track that could handle any equipment
    and we got to keep it down for the Jeeps. Kyle and Scott Black
    then reversed the process and tore down the playground and the
    plates on Saturday while the auction at Erwin’s was still going on.
    It was all done by 5:00. Wow! Of course, the clubs helped build
    and tear down the playground even with all the mud, rain, and
    cold. It is defi nitely “funner’ to ride thru the playground than to walk
    thru it dragging rocks around!
    Larry Walker and the Poor Farmer’s campground made it possible
    for this event to be a weekend family fun time. Larry roasted a pig
    out there and many of us got to taste the great results on Saturday
    night. Next year we hope that more people come and enjoy the
    talk, food, campfi re, and relaxing time. Profi ts from the pig roast
    also go to Relay for Life.
    In July watch our web site for a link to our “Jeep Rally for Life”
    store. We will have t-shirts, jackets, hats, etc. available from a
    supplier who will direct ship your order and mail a check of the
    profi ts to the Relay for Life monthly.
    If you have companies who have donated items/time, let us know
    if you want them to receive a letter from us to provide evidence of
    their donation for tax purposes.
    Feel free to give us your feedback about what to keep the same
    and how to improve this event.

    I lost my dear friend Willie on Tuesday.
    He fought a hard battle, now he is at rest.

    RIP Willie!
