Shawn M. Laity Memorial Ride (August 22)

Please join Blue Mountain Jeep Alliance (BMJA) on Sunday, August 22, 2010 to remember one of our great friends, Shawn Laity. Shawn was a very active member of BMJA and was the kind of guy that would do anything for anyone. He always had a smile on his face and never walked away from someone in need.

Shawn was taken from us on his way home while traveling on Route 724 in Reading, PA. It was a very freak accident in which a tree fell on his truck as he was driving. He leaves behind his wife and his 5 year-old daughter. As well as many friends, family, and fellow wheelers.

This event will be held at Rausch Creek Offroad Park (Rausch Creek Off Road Park). Come out Saturday August 21st to watch Rausch Creek’s own RCrocs rock crawling event and wheel on Sunday in Shawn’s memory.

There will be many opportunities to donate on Saturday at the RCrocs event while watching some awesome action.

There will be a ton of raffle items on Sunday from a bunch of different sponsors and companies.

Proceeds from donations on Saturday and Shawn’s Memorial ride on Sunday will go directly to a savings bond for Shawn’s daughter so she can put it towards paying for college when the time comes.

Shawn drove an ’88 YJ, but this event is open to any 4 wheel drive vehicle.

Please come out and show your support for Shawn, as he would have done the same for anyone else.

I did not know Shawn personally but I do know poeple who considered him a good friend. My heart goes out to his family. I am trail guiding for an event at Rausch the weekend before and I'm not sure yet if I will be able to make this ride.

You will more than likely be able to find someone to wheel with. We are getting a great response and there will be a lot of rigs there.

Tell your friends to come out and wheel on August 22!!!

This Sunday is the trail ride!

Here is a little more information ...

All standard (normal) R/C fees still apply, and they are:

$35.00 fee for driver / vehicle
$7.00 fee for each passenger
$15.00 fee for annual pass (if not current)

When you check in at the office, the lovely girls behind the counter will be asking for donations towards the benefit ride. Please do what you can! Every little bit helps. Then look for the group and organizers with the green or yellow vests. They will direct you to the proper group and raffle table.
