I've met alot of the guys from The Salem Jeepers Club, and I certainly didnt get the impression that any of them were "cliquey"
...but that could just be me.
I was at the Salem Jeeper's Summer Jam last year, and it was an awesome event.
I met a lot of cool people and had a great time.
Now I know every club is bound to have a bad apple or two, and everyone has themselves a bad day here and there, ....so it could be possible that it was just a perfect storm of coincidences that led to the first impression you got.
