FYI - The name is a joke, there's nothing even close to "formal" about this event! UPDATE: The location has changed to a dry/dispersed campsite instead of the campground, see below! This year the party is in Cottonwood, AZ! We've got plenty of fun planned (even beyond the fireside shenanigans and general good time!). Attend an easy to moderate trail ride on Saturday, or just play tourist in Cottonwood, Jerome or Sedona (did someone say winery tour?). Back at camp later you can enter to win some great Offroad Passport swag in the homemade salsa contest or one of our epic camp-challenge games! So grab the family and come spend a weekend tent or RV camping with us. Don't be that person hearing about all the great stuff you missed for the next whole year - sign up now! Location: Our original campground reservation was canceled due to COVID-19... Location confirmed! We've found a dispersed camp spot accessible by higher-clearance trucks/SUVs and RVs. It's 30 minutes east of Camp Verde, just off AZ Hwy 260 on Forest Road 142H. I don't believe the Forest Road is signed with a number, so you'll need the map or GPS coords below. Google Maps link... GPS coordinates: 34.505833, -111.582222 Alternate coordinates format: 34° 30.35' N, 111° 34.9333' W Photo of the turnoff here... just EAST of mile marker 241! Important: This spot is currently bone dry but would be too muddy for RV's if it rains a ton the week before the event. Just in case, we have a backup location about 10 miles away, right off AZ Hwy 87. Cost: Camping Cost: There is no longer a camping fee due to the change in location, please contact us if you pre-paid and did not already receive a full refund. Suggested Donation: This is our annual fundraising event and a donation of $15/person (adult) would be greatly appreciated. We're not doing a raffle or receiving anything from campsite fees this year. Club & Supporting Membership fees typically only cover our absolute most basic operating costs and so we're really relying on folks to donate. Please see Diane at the event to make your donation.

Dinner (self-prepared) and social time, be sure to welcome any new faces!
