The Salem Jeepers Jam is going to be a blast.... We've gotten a lot of buzz around the Jeep community about this, and it's been generating a lot of interest.
For those of you who attended last years Dont Fear The Jeeper Event, you may remember me spinning the classic rock all day long doing my best to represent KGON (who cancelled at the last minute) - and MCing the whole day as well as managing the raffle at the end of the day (I was the overly charismatic, good looking guy on the mic)
Jon Mock - the guy who has dedicated the last year of his life to organizing this First Annual Salem Jeep Summer Jam - has brought me in to do the same thing for his event. I'll be there pumping the music out, and of course you'll hear my golden pipes on the mic throughout the day as well. (don't worry, there wont be any singing.)
I made sure to give a couple shameless plugs on the mic in front of the crowd at this years Jolly Jeeper's Back to Basics Run (last weekend), and there seemed to be a fair amount of interest there as well. I even had a last minute vendor come up and ask if he could get in on the action!
I think that the success of this event will help generate more support in the local Jeep community for future local events as well, and maybe once Dick Hannah gets a report (i'll be sure to have a hand in on that) - They'll be more apt to commit to a date.
Oregonwolf: If you would, please PM me the contact info you have for the people you've been talking to at Dick Hannah, I'd like to make a plea personally and also offer my services to help move things forward with another Dont Fear The Jeeper.....
I will also be talking with each and every vendor at the Salem event, getting contact info, to possibly get the ball rolling on support from their end for a second Dont Fear The Jeeper.
