Date: May 29-31
Location: Ellesnburg, WA
General Schedule (Subject to Change)
Saturday May 29th:
-Meet at Winegars http://maps.google.c...ved=0CAkQnwIwAA at 5pm for a meet and greet with some of the best homemade ice cream on the planet! From there, around 6pm, we will be heading to the main camping area for the weekend (See *Camping Details*). It is located north of Ellensburg up Reecer Creek Road. The rest of the nights activities will be up to those who are camping out (camp fire? marshmallows?).
Sunday May 30th:
-Meet in downtown Ellensburg (exact location to be determind) at 10am to prepare for the drive through the Yakima River Canyon. We will be departing at 11am so please be there on time! The destination will be Miners Drive-In in Yakima, bring an apatite because the meals are BIG. We should arrive around 12pm, here are directions http://maps.google.c...617294&t=h&z=11
After lunch (hopefully before 2pm) we will head back to Ellensburg through the canyon to where we started. At that location will be the "car show" (or should i say truck show? ). It will hopefully start at 3pm and end before 5pm (See *Car Show Details*). After the show i would assume a group would want to have some fun offroad. And I would hope to have a nice camp fire social at the campsite.
Monday May 31st:
-Mostly a day to drive home if you haven't already
You can camp out or stay in, the main camping spot will be up Reecer Creek road where it will be primitive style camping with paved access. There are also lots of hotels in town if you wish to stay indoors. Also there is a KOA in town if you wish to have less primitive camping. As far as the main campsite goes there are several options for camping spots but my hope is to get the large field right off the road, directions are here http://maps.google.c...e=UTF8&t=h&z=11
the area mainly sees camping during hunting season so there shouldn't be much competition at all for spots. As far as i know campfires should be allowed, i will look further into that to make sure. For those who want to have some fun offroad here is a list of trails in that area http://nwjeepn.com/W...ils.htm#liberty. I hope to explore more of the area before the meet but if anyone has experience driving these trails then speak up!
The car show will consist of a "show and shine" and a public vote for top three BRATs. Winners will receive medals (gold, silver, and bronze hubcaps) and bragging rights. The plan is for registration to open when we get back from Yakima (around 3pm). Registration will consist of being assigned a number so people can vote for your BRAT. Voting will begin soon after and will end by 4pm. Votes will be counted and winners will be announced and receive the awesome prize
Anyone is more than welcome to attend. If you own a BRAT you have to come. If you own a subaru you should definitely come. If you like BRATs or subarus in general then you should come!
If there are any questions or concerns either post up in here or shoot me a PM.
