Save the Date! Moab 2018

***October 9th - 13th, 2018***



is holding the 35th Anniversary Celebration of the introduction of the XJ in 1983 on October 9th-13th, 2018 in Moab, Utah. The BOD has set the dates for the Moab event in 2018 and they want you to start saving your pennies for fuel, saving your precious vacation time, and wrenching on your junk, to prepare for this event.



If you have never been to Moab or only go every 5 years, this is the event to plan to attend.



There will be more information coming along as plans are set in stone, as well as an event forum, the BOD wants to get the dates out now. If you are interested in planning, helping, trail guiding or anything else that goes into making a event successful, please email or PM me. If you are a NAXA sponsor and are interested in being apart of this event, please PM me or sponsorship as we'll be coordinating efforts for opportunities for vendors. In the coming days, I will be getting in contact with those who have helped in the past to see if they would like to help again in 2018.



To get an idea of what to expect, you can find the event forum for the 2013 event by clicking on this sentence.



It's well worth the trip. Only 488 days left!

Re: Save the Date! Moab 2018

So is slickrock still the party place or is there a new venue where everyone is at? Thinking about dragging the trailer out and staying the week.

We've heard the stories about slickrock the past couple of years and we're looking at different places to plant the flag. We'll know more in a couple of months.

It's unlikely that the 'party place' will be at slickrock, we are going to determine someplace suitable in the coming months.

Re: Save the Date! Moab 2018

I didn't see Josh's reply before I posted until now. Didn't mean to post the same info again. Stupid phones.

I will periodically update these chapter threads with info until we officially open the event forum in a few months.

The BOD has had folks asking for dates already, so the BOD decided to get them set for those that need to plan in advance.

That said, I would like to commend Mac for refraining from excessive use of the thumbs.

I am not sure that I've ever used before.

Josh says I use to many commas.

Re: Save the Date! Moab 2018

Commas are fine.

They are like parenthesis to ensure correct order of operations in math. Fewer dumb mistakes that way.

Oxford commas are annoying.

Re: Save the Date! Moab 2018

I use Oxford commas quite a bit. For something as simple as 1,2 and 3 I would write it as 1,2 & 3. I like ampersands.

All the information will be in posted when it's settled. We're still a good way out so we don't have things lined up. We'll be putting the IC folks to the task of helping us with recommendations on a place that splits the balance between lenient to certain shenanigans and not entirely run down.

Unfortunately Slick Rock has fallen into disrepair in recent years and, unless they suddenly sink some work into it, won't likely be our main HQ. Pity as we were good for quite a number of campsites sold.
