7th Annual Full Size Jeep 'East Coast Invasion'
Group camp is booked! It's on like Donkey Kong!!
THERE IS A NO ALCOHOL POLICY IN THE NATIONAL FOREST, INCLUDING THE CAMPGROUND. This will be strictly enforced. If you are seen with alcohol you will be asked to put it away or leave the campground. NO EXCEPTIONS! Last year there were some issues with drinking that will not be tolerated again.
7th Annual ECI - June 11th-14th 2009
Like previous years that the CFSJC has hosted the event, camping is FREE (Thurs. - Fri. - Sat.)! We return to the Badin Lake Group Camp for '09.
Uwharrie National Forest - Troy, NC
Hosted by Carolina Full Size Jeep Club
What do I need to bring?: Your FSJ, some camping gear or camper, and $5 a day for trail passes. A Season Pass is $30. These are National Forest Service Fees, and only required if your taking a vehicle on the trails. Most of us just buy them at "The Outpost", a gas station near the entrance to URE. If your FSJ aint runnin', bring what you can.
*Primitive (trail or roadside, no convenient facilities) camping is allowed in the forest for free as well. Many folks camp trailside throughout the year.
How difficult are the trails?: The trails at URE are mild to tough, nothing too wild, but there is a challenge for all rigs and driver skill. We take stock FSJs over most of the trails out there. Some of the harder trails have by-passes
Drinking and driving on the trails is the same as drinking and driving on NC roads. The new LEO is a strict rule follower with a 0 tolerance policy. He WILL arrest you if found drinking and driving anywhere in the forest. He has the right to search vehicles, coolers and campsites. Please keep in mind that as an attendee you represent a sport that is already in danger, and the FSJ community.
It's a small sacrifice for a great weekend of wheeling and comraderie.
There will be a raffle again this year. We'll have more info on that as the date draws closer.
Previous years we have had donations from the likes of...
