JeepsGoneWild Toys For Tots at the BadLands Dec 1st Sat.

Our Club..."Jeeps Gone Wild" will be going to the Badlands on
Dec 1st on Sat for their Toys For Tots event.

This event is for the needy children that don't have any toys for Christmas.
The Badlands ask to bring a $20 toy thats wrapped. This gift will be your fee to enter the park. They will also offer a free meal for everyone to thank you for helping out the children to bring smiles on their faces when they receive our gifts.

Everyone is welcome to join in for this nice gathering. We would love to have many join us for the ride going there and all rigs are welcome from stock to built. You can also decorate your rigs so, It will look nice for this event.

Our club will also run a few trails when we are there so, It's going to be a blast to hang out with everyone who takes place in this event.

Please Join Us for this event "Toys For Tots" at the
Badlands in Attica, Indiana on Dec 1st on Sat.

Hope to see lots of you join in!

Thank You,
Michael
Club President

If you wish to join us on our convoy please be there at 6:00am to because we plan to leave the parking lot of Speedway by 6:45am. We plan to leave early because Indiana time is 1 hour ahead and the park opens at 9:00am that’s 8:00am Illinois time. This trip will be about 2 hours from Darien. Please be on time if you wish to join us. We will be leaving the parking area as soon as we can & will not wait.

hard telling if I'll be able to come but I', jumping at the chance since this is a charity ride for the wee ones. Most likely I'll be working, but I'm hoping I can get my job covered to attend. Is this an annual event??

I'll be coming up from Columbus, IN. My name is Joel and hopefully I can wrangle up a couple friends and my gf also. Thank you for the opportunity for a good Christmas deed.

If you're under 18, it's $15, over 18 it's $20, passengers are $5... all the cost of new toys of course..

I'd be safe and get a $20 toy, that's the usual entry fee and what it says on their site for the event.
