A couple of years ago, we had a meet and greet at my restaurant "Fire + Spice" at the Sheraton Tempe by the Phoenix Airport.

It was a great time to meet folks you didn't know, see each others trucks, socialize etc...

We ended up having about 50 people and 25 FJ's and was a great time!

We have had so many new members recently, and some of the vets have faded a little bit that I think its time for another meet and greet to reconnect!

So, here is what I propose:

WHAT
Meet and greet at Sheraton Tempe for dinner
Friday Night - August 15
6:30pm start
Buffet served (special discounted inclusive pricing)

$69 rate for those that want to stay over

This will also allow those that want to come from Tucson a chance to enjoy as well and stay over if needed.

We will block off a section of the parking lot so we can all pose and gawk at our trucks together.

The hotel is right off the I-10 at Broadway and close to the 60 and 101, so pretty accessible.
www.sheratonphoenixairport.com/


WHAT #2
Additionally, we will do a wheeling adventure for Crown King for Saturday August 16th to make it worthwhile for the folks from Tucson to come up Smile

We will leave the airdown spot at 1:00pm (follow Castle Hot Springs Rd off Carefree Hwy and there is a designated air down spot). With a bunch of rigs would probably take us 5 hours to get to town and get there around dinner time at the Saloon or Mill for those that are interested.

Town will probably be busy with all the jeeps from the 16th Annual Jeep run in the morning.

Then, perhaps a little twist: those that want, can go BACK down the back way to Crown King on a night run (around 8pm). We did this exact run two years ago and it was epic (mainly because of the weather, landslide, recovery, etc...) - links from previous up and back night run below.

Or, those that want can camp or stay in the whorehouse saloon in town.
Or, those that want can go back the normal way via I-17
