Join us for a short trail ride and big time fun with your Offroad Passport friends at our annual Holiday Party! We bring the burgers & dogs for a potluck lunch, plus there's the infamous cut-throat white elephant gift game, and the delicious cookie contest!

 

Note that we have a new location (near Lake Pleasant) and that the optional trail ride is rated moderate this year.

 

 

Important Details:

 

  • 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.
  • Pets are ok, so long as you follow our Pet Policy. Please also keep them reined in close and no begging while folks are trying to eat.
  • Comms on GMRS channel 20 (462.675 Mhz)
  • Bring cash if you'd like to get one of the new style ORP shirts (or just win the cookie contest)!

 

 

Meetup / Trail Info:

 

  • Meetup location (for both groups)
    • Gravel parking lot beside Wild Horse West restaurant. Click here for a map...
    • Please arrive fueled up and ready to go! Note there is a brand new gas station right next door.

 

  • Option #1 - Moderate trail ride before the party.
    • Meet @theksmith at 9am sharp!
    • This trail is doable by a stock high-clearance 4wd rig with aggressive A/T or M/T tires, such as a Wrangler or Tacoma. Other rigs might need a small 1" or 2" lift. 

 

  • Option #2 - Easy route direct to the party spot. 
    • Meet @4x4tographer at 10:30 am.
    • This will be a quick ride down an easy wash. A high clearance vehicle is still required.

 

 

White Elephant Game:

 

  • Bring a wrapped gift to participate!

  • $25 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 after it's been stolen twice (i.e. it can't be taken from it's 3rd owner).

 

 

Enter the Cookie Baking Contest!

 

  • Bring your homemade cookies!
  • Everyone please try all the cookies and vote for the winner.
  • The cookie with the most votes wins a NEW Offroad Passport T-Shirt!
