Anyone interested in a "Jeep Weekend" event?

Here in the Lakes Region we have a "Motorcycle Week" which started out as "Motorcycle weekend" many years ago. Some 300K to 400K bikers show up every year in June.
What if, in stead of Motorcycles it were JEEPS! And instead of June, it was Sept 2014
So I'm thinking of talking with the people who sponsor MC week and a bunch of jeep dealers and companies who might be interested in setting up tents and booths.
And I can already think of a couple good ride events like "Thunder in the Mountains" an organized ride event thru the Sandwich Notch to honor wounded soldiers. And "Jeep Parade" a parade like drive thru 3 or 4 towns.
So who's on board? Anyone else interested?
Anyone interested in helping to organize this?

LOL Sounds a lot like the 10th annual Great American Jeep Rally (http://www.jeeprally.org) next month in CT. (Except for the parade that is!)

Yup! Something like that. But now that I have been talking with a few people about it, it seem that the other On/Off road people are feeling a bit left out. So this event probably will include other types of off roaders too.
It can only make it more interesting. Now if I can figure out where to put the mud.

Go for it.

Here is my advice: Any Jeep/off-road event that does not include trail rides (or at the very least rock pile & mud pit) is just a glorified car show. Not very interesting.
