Info from Facebook page guys!
It has been way too long, so it's time for another AZFJ Meet and Greet!
With Covid, we will be doing it a little bit differently than in the past.
We will be meeting outdoors (instead of in a hotel), and then doing a run afterwards
We will gather at the shooting area/air down spot on Price Rd in Florence as that could probably hold 40+ rigs or so.
We will hang out there and mingle for about an hour or so - I will be selling stickers, we will have a christmas cookie exchange, gawk at each other's trucks, etc...
Afterwhich, we will do a run to Box Canyon and then exit out north off of the 60.
Here is some info about events in the past. I am too lazy to post the one from 2017 🙂
Link to 2014
Here is the link to the event in 2015
Here was the video we showed at the dinner in 2014
And here was the video from 2015
It was a great time to meet folks you didn't know, see each others trucks, socialize etc...
We ended up having over 50 trucks and nearly 100 people 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 are the details:
Meet and greet at Shooting area in Florence
ALL MAKES OF TRUCKS ARE WELCOME
Saturday afternoon - Dec 19th
3pm Start for Meet and Greet
When you come into the area, please make sure you leave space for a "Driveway" so other trucks can enter. And park in sequential lines, so we can get as many trucks in as possible.
I will be selling AZFJ stickers (yes, we have them!) to any who wants.
Let's have some fun, and do a Christmas Cookie Exchange as well to encourage interaction. We will set up an area in the front where we will have the stickers and display the cookies. It would be fun if everyone made some killer cookies/desserts and bragged about how amazing they are 🙂
Please bring a table if you have one so we can share/set up as much as we want. Please label your cookies (what they are and who made them).
Wear festive gear! This is so close to Christmas and Hanukah, so let's be festive. Decorate yourself, and decorate your truck!
Please ensure you share the Meet and Greet info with your friends (not just here) so we can gather as many like minded individuals as possible!
THE ONLY COMMUNICATION FOR THIS WILL BE ON FACEBOOK
An easy, fun night run!
5pm departure time from the shooting area
After the Meet and Greet, we will be doing a night run to Box Canyon Run
So its a great chance to decorate your truck or yourselves and use your cool lights! 🙂
We will start with Box Canyon from South to North (enter at Price Rd).
We will head out North via Mineral Mountain Mine road
Info about the Trail:
Box Canyon (very easy, but funl) is a signature trail, good trail for beginners and all.
There is one signature obstacle, a waterfall on the left, and a big-boy waterfall on the right.
Stock trucks can make it up easy as long as you have 1 locker, and/or atrac.
I will spot anyone up who needs it, and we will make sure everyone gets up, even if we have to tow you 🙂
A fun run for veterans, a fun run for noobs who want to see what their truck can do
Please make sure you have some form of communication, either a CB or a HAM
If you want to, many of us usually camp in the Florence desert after a night run in the northern section. It's a great area to camp/gather etc..
It is easily accesible, here are the coords:
If you plan on camping, you will need an AZ state landtrust permit. very easy and simple to get online.
We will need help with a few things please.
I will need one volunteer to help direct and stage parking at the shooting area.
I will need at least two (maybe three) volunteers with good communication to be tail gunner, and staged in the middle since I assume we will probably have a significant amount of trucks go on the run.
Please let me know if you are interested
As we all know, we are in a Pandemic.
Please be responsible and vigilant.
If you are stick, stay home.
Take your temperature before you come.
Cover coughs and sneezes
Wash and sanitize your hands regularly.
Social distance appropriately as needed.
Wear a mask as appropriate.
See everyone soon!
