Tomorrow is the Goodview Lighted Parade!

Hello all fellow Jeepers.

Tomorrow , Saturday December 8th is the Goodview lighted parade.  We will be dressing the Jeeps at Sugarloaf Ford inside where it is warm.  The decorating will be from 3:30 to 4:30. Hot chocolate and treats will be furnished. Bring something to share if you wish.   Then we will then proceed to the Goodview line up area. Parade starts at 5pm.  Mrs. Santa will be collecting donations for the food shelf along the route.   After the parade all of us are invited to the Goodview School for a little bite to eat.  Now  it’s back to Sugarloaf so we can remove the lights where it is warm. Please RSVP so I can let Goodview know how many to plan for.   Thank You and Hope to see you there.        Brad

Goodview lighted parade – 2018

Looked out and saw a few flakes of snow. Thought I better get out our December event sent out. The Winona Area Jeep Friends are planning to participate in the Goodview lighted parade this year. It will be Saturday December 8th from 5 to 6 pm in Goodview. We are meeting at Sugar Loaf Ford around 3:30 pm so we can decorate our jeeps with as many LED lights as your Jeep can hold. Bring everything you need to decorate your Jeep. The shop area will be open and warm. There will be hot chocolate and treats. Bring a treat to pass if you wish. Returning to Sugarloaf after the parade to de-decorate were it is warm and dry. Bring the whole family and enjoy the night. Also, please bring a donation for the 10 days of Giving. Mrs. Santa Clause will be collecting bags along the parade route. It would be nice to see a record number of Jeeps show up. Let the community know we support them.

Jeep Run – Saturday May 30th

Hello fellow jeep fans.  We will be doing a Jeep run on Saturday May 30th to Stockholm Wisconsin.  Planning on eating at the Pickle Barrel.  This will be an on road event so don’t be shy if you own a vehicle that has not been built up.  We may take a detour or two to some scenic spots along the way. Ever been to Alma Lookout or Nelson Cheese?  A stop there may be in order.  Please bring your little family walky talkies as we all use channel 2.  These are not cb’s but the little ones you buy for camping.  Motorola, Cobra, Midland are all brands that can be picked up at Feel Farm, Target, etc. It is not mandatory you have one but is nice to listen in to the leader and end person.  You can also request a pull over if needed.  We will be meeting at Chrysler Winona at 11:00 am for a brief safety meeting and then depart.  If you have any Questions you can email Brad at support@waj.club

Edit —

A couple of questions came up that I should address.

Can we bring pets to the events?  Yes you can!!  We encourage the whole family to participate in the events.  Please make sure that pets keep you under control at all times.

Can we bring friends that don’t drive a Jeep to ride in our vehicle?  Yes you can.  Please bring enough Keenix when they realize they should have bought a JEEP!

Can we suggest places or times to go for our events?  Again the answer is yes.

We just had a member inform us that a new trail may be opening up in Houston county.  This is exciting news!  We are working with the DNR to have a cleanup trail ride.  This is a foot in the door for a new cooperative venture.  Stay tuned.  See you all Saturday.
