US/Canada: Great Plains International Jeepers Rendezvous
1st Time Public Event!
2009 Great Plains International Jeepers Rendezvous.
It is scheduled for August the 2nd - Noon to 4pm at the International Peace Gardens on the North Dakota / Manitoba Border. Hosted by the Westman Jeep Association of Manitoba Canada.
The main purpose of the event is to bring together Jeepers from all over the Great Plains area of North America for an afternoon of living the brand, showing it to the public and making new friendships with other Jeep fans from a wide range of locations. The main event will be a stationary Jeep show in which all attendees can participate with their Jeep. 1941 - present, all models welcome and encouraged! An informal Jeepers Swap Meet will also be take place during the show (Private individuals only, no merchants or vendors at this time) for those wishing to sell, trade or swap "Jeep stuff".
Secondary events not associated with the GPIJR include the 30th Annual Antique, Classic and Custom Car show (also international), Live music from Highway 43 Band (70's, Eagles, and civil war music), and assorted artisans around the park area. A Sunday Brunch also takes place from 11am - 2pm.
The gate fees at the Park will be waived for all Jeepers participating in the GPIJR show, otherwise the regular entry fee will apply.
This will be a Keep It Simple event concept for this first go around until we see how it takes shape and develop future event "extras". So, pack a lunch, or get ready for a campout (camping is available on site or in the immediate area) and join us for an afternoon of Jeep talk, tall tales, and doing the Jeep Thing!
Potential for a scenic evening trail ride (on the Canadian side of the border) exists and will be determined by turnout and interest. Details of this portion of the event are still under coordination with local authorities re: access and travel routes.
Bring out the Jeeps and help us make this a successfull annual event for Jeepers on the Great Plains of North America!
US Attendees: If you plan to attend the trail ride be sure to have all your ID and neccessary border crossing papers in order for processing.
