1/5/2019: 9th Annual Holiday Party Trail Ride BBQ Gift Exchange Cookie Contest: near Fountain Hills, AZ: 4x4 Easy to Moderate

It's time for Offroad Passport's Annual Holiday party after the Holidays! Join us for a short trail ride and big time fun! There's BBQ'd burgers & dogs and a potluck lunch, the infamous cut-throat white elephant gift exchange, and the annual cookie contest (AND JUDGING - YUM!)! After all the fun and excitement we'll head back the way we went in, probably airing up by mid-afternoon. It's a fun day with your Offroad Passport friends!

Meet up:
9:30 AM at the Baja gas station (Chevron) on Hwy 87 and Fort McDowell Rd: Map link here...

Note: For the 2nd year in a row, we are meeting at a different place! This is NOT the usual meeting spot at the Shell station, our group is too big to meet there. You may want to get gas at the Shell first though since they are cheaper.

We should be back to Hwy 87 (just a few miles beyond Fountain Hills) by mid afternoon (depends on how many come and how long the gift exchange runs!)
Sign up for the POTLUCK! Offroad Passport will supply Hamburgers and Hotdogs (not the buns). Let us know what you can bring to contribute to the lunch. We'll also need tables, trash bags, etc.
