Default 1/9/2016: 6th Annual Holiday Party BBQ Gift Exch. Cookie Contest near Fountain Hills, 4x4 Easy/Mod.


1/9/2016: 6th 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 6th 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!


TRAIL & HOLIDAY PARTY LOCATION UPDATE:
We have some bad news and some good news. The bad news is every trail off Hwy. 87 is CLOSED! So not only our original party spot, but even our plan b party spot are both off limits.

The good news is we've found a suitable alternative location! We're moving the Holiday Party to Butcher Jones Recreation Area next to Saguaro Lake. So there won't be a trail ride this year, but there is a fun hiking trail if anybody wants to check it out, and all our regular festivities are ON!

EVERYONE WILL NEED A TONTO PASS! available at the meet-up inside the gas station for $8.00.

Meet up Time & Place Remains the SAME:
9:00 AM - Depart for trail 9:30 AM (or when everyone is ready)

Shell/Circle K on Shea Blvd & Monterey Dr., Fountain Hills, AZ (South side of Shea, West of Hwy. 87) Map here...

We should be back to HWY 87 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.

Enter the Cookie Baking Contest! Bring your homemade cookies in a container with your name on it. The cookie with the most votes wins a fabulous prize!

Gift Exchange
  • Bring wrapped gift(s) to participate!
  • $20 (suggestion) limit.
  • No limit on number of gifts per person.
  • 4x4, Expedition, Camping or White Elephant! Have have fun with it but please bring something YOU'D love to win.
  • Take a number for each gift you bring.
  • The highest number goes first by opening any present.
  • The next highest number may steal the first gift or open another one and so on until all the gifts are open.
  • A gift may be stolen no more than 3 times per round.


Additional Info:
