Brand New Ky Offroad Club

Ok ladies and gentleman. Here it is, Kentuckys newest offroad club is here. It has been in the making for a few months now and finally we got everything we needed together to do it. Here is a little background:

It all started as a few friends in the lexington, ky area wanted to go offroading every now and then but also wanted to form some kind of club while doing it. There were already a bunch of KY jeep clubs around but we wanted our own. We were a bunch of college guys who wanted to have an organized and fun club to ride in who doesnt care about what kind of rig you have as long as it has four wheel drive and you can drive smart.

Now since we are not a "Jeep Only" club here on JF we must ask that if you post of start a thread it must be only jeep related. About 90% of the guys wanting to join the club are Jeep owners and are members of JF themselves so thats why we wanted to start a club section on here since so many of our future members are JF'ers.

Now to the actual club.

The name of the club is called:
T.O.R.C. Offroad

It stands for Twisted Off Road Club. We are based out of Kentucky are not limited to wheelin in Kentucky only. Hopefully as the club grows we can start wheelin in some of the bordering states as well as out west. Even though we do have some of the best wheelin this side of the Mississippi :D:D

We are still in the process of creating a club logo and website, but since our logo is for our club we would like to have the main picture a few jeeps from the club so at our next ride at Hillz N Hollarz on Feb 7th/8th (See Sig) we are going to take pictures and see what kind of club logo we can come up with. We have alot of good ideas now and the logo should be done right after the wheeling trip and hopefully by our first club meeting.

The website is:
www.torcoffroad.com

Is it currently under construction, but will be up within a few months after we get members rigs and all the official forms online that need to be. If anyone has the ability to make websites/forums please PM me so we can try and get something going.

Currently we open for ideas for when and where meetings will be held. We have many potential members in the Lexington area as well as alot of potential members from the Northern Kentucky area. So I was trying to figure out where would be the middle? Its about an hour from NKY to Lexington so cut that in half and we need to figure out what is about half hour away I guess. This is the only way because I know that many members from the NKY area cant drive an hour each way once a month and the same goes for people from Lexington. Again nothing is set in stone so please post up your concerns and ideas. Im open to anything.

As of right now there are currently only two officers. Me and Spyder6 (Will). I am currently the President/Secretary and Will is the Vice President/Treasurer. We hope to elect new officers at the 2nd meeting that way we can get a good group to show up and show interest.

As for the time and dates of the meetings we still need YOU, those who are interested in joining posting up what days and times you are free. I figure we will meet at a restaurant of some sort, get some food and just hang out and then after we have all gotten some grub hold the meetings. This way we all can get to know each other and when new potential members show up they are welcomed in and not made to sit and listen to club things right away.

I will be posting up applications and information as I get it officially done and then the by laws and rules and other paper work such as that will be given out at meetings and posted on our website when it comes up.

I hope we have alot of people interested and please post in here. Im excited about getting this up and running and hopefully we can become one of Kentuckys finest and most mature and responsible off road organizations. Thanks and have a great day!

Brad
TORC Offroad President

Hey guys. I'm trying to get into the whole jeep lifestyle and be part of the group. I'm from Etown and unfortunately, will have a hard time making it to meetings on a regular basis. I will do my best though. I'd love to hang out with some others that enjoy some good wheelin and know the trails and hotspots. The weekends work out good for me with some advanced warning to ask off.

I second the vote for CiCi's... They shut ours down cuz they couldn't get anybody that wasn't shady to run the place. Now I've gotta drive an hour minimum to eat there. lol. But my vote counts little since I will only make it up on occasion. I'm just bored and felt like chiming in.

Am I the only one in southern ky, the only one on here I know somewhat close is bigdumbbear and he's in Etown
Yeah, I don't count for much though, cuz I can't even got my jeep to run right. It's the biggest mystery I've ever faced. Anybody got a good 304 I can borrow for a week or so to see if the engine is the problem? I've replaced everything feasable except the camshaft.... twice on many things. lol

ahh its cool man, maybe this summer I can hook up with you guys.

Til then I was just hoping to get some pics of yalls progress....and slightly stalk this thread
About the same here. I'm having a hard time getting to Northern KY. It seems like something always comes up. And I'm trying to get a second job to support my habit of expelling cash into this thing called a jeep and keep the dream alive of buying a house in a few years. YLIslander... I shall hit you up if I'm planning a journey to the BG area. Atleast me and you can have a meeting. lol.

There are some nice CJs that hang around E-town.
One of them is silver, and the other day I saw it in a parking lot, and coulda sworn it had a SUA setup, that really confused me.
There's another tan one that I used to see around sometimes, it had full soft doors last I saw it.
Anyway, the point is,
ya ever drive around Elizabethtown?
I was bummed at first when my CJ wasn't mentioned... then I realized it never sees daylight cuz I haven't been able to get it running right. You'll hopefully see it a bunch in the next few weeks:D

I agree there are some good looking CJ's running around and a bunch of the newer ones...very few with many mods that I've seen. But hey, my TJ was setup pretty nice once I bumped up the tire size so they don't need many mods for "normal" use.

I still like the Police cars at WKU. All Impala's (well they used to be anyway when I dated a chick that went there). In all honesty, I love BG. I used to go to WKU all the time in High School for select band and honor band things and the campus is so amazing and then when I dated this chick who goes there when I would come down and stay with her and stuff just going around campus, and going to the student center, cafeteria place, everywhere was just awesome. Plus you have alot of southern women down there too..mm..mm..mm...
I loved living down there mostly cuz of those southern women/girls. I'd go to the mall all the time just to enjoy the "scenery" lol.

The town is pretty fun, but the traffic is horrible!

Just go hunting.... Not with a gun! WKU already had that scare this year. You could hang out around that area and try to catch the driver and ask him/her. Convince a couple people to hang around with you and play haki-sak or something... That's what college kids do right??? OOOrrrr, a less creepy and time consuming method would be to leave a note asking them to email you or something. Some people might find that strange, but I'd respond if I got something like that.
