Western Mass. food drive

Hey folks, theres a benefiet run going on in the Berkshires of western Mass Nov. 7th,,,,,,,heres the info......im trying to get any local jeepers to go, family orientated is cool...or anyone, i will be doing the easy run since ill have my wife and 2 year old with me, im heading from CT. and would like some fellow jeepers to convoy with......and its for a good cause too !
Mark your calendars for the FOOD DRIVE in North Adams.

EC4WDA Four Wheel Food Drive, Saturday November 7th.
Meeting place: National Guard Armory, Ashland St, North Adams, Ma
Meeting time is 9am, departing to the trails by 11am.

On Saturday, November 7th, 2009, the Berkshire4Wheelers and East Coast 4 Wheel Drive Association, Northeast Region, will be holding their annual Four Wheel Food Drive food collection and off-road trail ride to benefit the Northern Berkshire Community Action Coalition food pantry. Attendees will donate non-perishable food items in the morning and then head out into the Berkshire hills for guided trail rides.. Coffee and donuts will be provided as well and a 50/50 raffle
Supermarket gift cards for Big Y and Stop & Shop will be accepted as well.

Please be ready for technical/equipment inspections. Nothing beyond the basics required on any organized trail ride. Take a look at your straps and recovery points BEFORE you show up with defective sub-par equipment please.
There will be different levels of trail difficulty available for all comers, however our emphasis is on attendance and giving. Be reasonable about how difficult your rig can handle. As you arrive you will be parked with a group for EASY, MODERATE or DIFFICULT… not by what trail you feel like doing. I expect 40+ rigs and 100+ people to attend. So the more cooperation we get the better it will come off..
Please make a point to attend, or give a donation to your buddy who is going.
This is one staple event that keeps us in a good relationship with the towns up there and we kick-*** every year.. lets make it another great season-closer!!

Just joking. The Hill is one of the more difficult trails.

I'm stuck working the lunch shift Saturday

You guys should hit Pittsfield Brew Works (about an hour south of North Adams)for lunch or dinner after the ride! (if you're still in the giving mood) We donate a lot of $ to charity/the Berkshire Humane Society, buy as much produce as possible from local farms and try to keep the restaraunt as 'green' as possible (save food scraps for compost, donate our spent grains to Han**** Shaker Village for the live stock, buy recycled paper 'to go containers' etc.) It would be great to get a couple more Jeeps in the parking lot!


EDIT: I got someone to cover the shift for me! I'm taking up a collection at the restaraunt and hopefully I can bring a few bads of stuff!!
