1/8/2022: 12th Annual Holiday Party Trail Ride BBQ Gift Exchange Cookie Contest: near Nothing, AZ: 4x4 Easy

 

It's time for Offroad Passport's Annual Holiday party after the Holidays! 

 

Join us for an easy trail ride and big time fun with your Offroad Passport friends! We'll be grilling burgers & dogs for a potluck lunch, plus there's the infamous cut-throat white elephant gift game, kids gift exchange, and the annual cookie contest (and judging, yummy)! We're at a new location again this year with an easy desert trail ride to see some neat mining ruins before the party starts!

 

 

Meet-up:

  • 9:30 AM at Nothing, AZ (an hour north-west of Wickenburg). Map link here...
  • Note there's literally nothing there (just a dirt pull-out), so fuel up & stock up on the way (in Wickenburg for most of you).

 

Trail Info:

  • Easy 4x4 trail with a couple small obstacles (see here for more info...). A high clearance street-legal 4x4 is required.
  • We'll run the trail to visit some mining ruins and then head back out closer to Nothing for the actual party.
  • We should be airing up back at Nothing by mid-afternoon.

 

Other Important Info:

  • Sorry, No Pets! With the large group, mingling, food, fire, grilling, and eating, this event is not suitable for pets. Please leave your dogs/cats/falcons/etc. at home this time!
  • This is a Potluck event! Please see the sign-up list below and let us know what you can contribute.
  • Subject to cancellation or postponement due to rain.
  • CB channel 4, or GMRS channel 17 (462.600 Mhz), or ham simplex 146.460 Mhz

 

 

Bring a White Elephant Gift!

 

  • Bring a wrapped gift to participate!
  • $20 suggested gift value. 4x4 or outdoor/travel related gifts, or just something fun, but please bring something you'd actually 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 1 time per round, and is completely frozen on its 3rd owner (i.e. after its 2nd steal).

 
 
Kids Gift Exchange:
 
  • Bring 1 wrapped gift for each child you bring (let us know the ages when you sign up).
  • Try to bring a somewhat age/gender neutral gift that costs around $10.
  • Adults will randomly number the gifts, and put all the numbers in a hat.
  • Kids will each draw a number to see which gift they get. No stealing or anything, just a fun surprise gift.
  • Trading is allowed after all the gifts are open, if any of them want to.
