    Thumbs up Toys 4 Tots 2012 - Save the Date!!!

    DECEMBER 8th-9th, 2012
    OVER-NIGHTER



    Well its that time a year again, Yet again! It's our 6th year for organizing this and I can't believe how fast time flies. I like to mix things up and always keep the event fresh, so this year we have a new location that will serve as a great venue for all types off Off Road Enthusiasts.

    The Location will be Hungry Valley State Vehicle Recreation Area, Gorman CA Located just north of Los Angeles.

    http://ohv.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=1192



    I've rented out the entire Aliklik Campground right next to the 4x4 Practice Course. The campground is near trails for exploration and serves as the gateway to the Los Padres NF.

    The park is large with over 100 mile of trails and there's something for everyone, not just Overlanders. You can ride green sticker dirt bikes, quads and buggies. We want to appeal to a larger spectrum of folks so we can optimize our Toy Drive success!


    DATE
    • December 8th, 9th 2012. (First Weekend in December!). Not too close to Christmas and New Years and a far enough from Thanksgiving. Pencil it in now!


    TIME: The ToyDrive is 9am-4pm. Overnight Camping and Day-Use Welcome

    FEE's
    Day Use - $5 per day
    Camping - $10 per night

    LOCATION:
    http://www.mapquest.com/maps?address...&redirect=true

    WHAT IS IT?:
    • So this is how it works. You bring a new unwrapped toy valued at $10 or more to the meet up. You get a raffle ticket for your contribution. PLEASE NOTE: For every 5th toy you donate you will receive an additional raffle ticket. Reminder so we're clear and everyone has a fair chance of winning a prize... If you drop off 100 toys , you will not receive 100 tickets. Also, new for this year - If you're in anyway involved with the event coordinating, setup etc, you will not be eligible to win prizes.

      We also have 3 categories you can win for prizes (See Below). Check out everyones rigs, meet new people and see some you already know. The Marines will be on site to help out and haul all the donations back to where they need to go.

      FOOD
      We will be providing lunch on site. Hotdogs, chips and sodas. All thanks to our good friend Mhiscox on this board. Thank you Mike!

      Note: If you don't want a hotdog and prefer something else, this is a camp out and therefore come prepared with food. Also, bring water and all necessary emergency prep you may need.


    SCHEDULE
    Check in to arrive is 9am. We'll be starting the grilling around NOON and start into the raffle about about 2pm. All on Saturday. The rest of the time, you can drop off toys (if after the raffle, you won't get a chance to win anything), meander around and oogle the rigs and meet fellow off road enthusiasts from all over the www.

    Sunday, those who've camped.. there may be a trail run up to Alamo Mountain. More information on this as it becomes available. The trail run will be a scenic and simple route. Nothing hardcore.
