The Ozark Off Road Club is hosting the 5th annual Ozark Off Road Adventure fundraiser with all proceeds to benefit the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter. We’ll have guided Newbie Runs, guided intermediate runs, and a guided run for the big boys requiring 37s+, front and rear locker, winch, and potential body damage. There will be a children’s event with prizes, a 50/50 poker run, family movie night, raffle items and silent auction. We are also raffling off a street legal Jeep XJ ready and capable to hit the trails on day one.
Jeep/Truck show right along side the Great South Bay. Music, festival, and family events.
We are so excited and hope you can be apart of the S.M. Off-Road Expo 2018. It’s going to be huge this year, full on Man Show Vendor Fair and Off-Road Expo as well as the dreaded Obstacle Course(Drive your own rig through). This year it will be at the ELK’s Rodeo grounds in Santa Maria (Amazing Venue!!!) and we hope you and your business will come and grow with us as this event grows.
The plan is to have everything Outdoor and Off-Road style for a never before event here on the Central Coast!! There is no cost to to be a part of it and we would love you to come. With the help of the Santa Maria Elks club, we will be taking over the radio airwaves and advertising this event in full force!! We are expecting with the already quick response from the community of local businesses to have around 100 vendors!
This charity event is being held in order to raise money for 4 Wheel to Heal (4W2H) to support their current endeavors. 4W2H is dedicated to taking wounded veterans, from all branches of service, to off-roading events. These events involve four wheeling, rock crawling, mud bogging, shooting and camping. Their mission is to boost morale for these veterans and give them an experience they will never forget.
Built To Heal was created with the expectation that a few friends would show up and help raise a little bit of money for a cause we all cared about. During that first year, we had less than 40 participants and ended up donating around $400. 2014 saw a sharp increase in attendance and a donation of around $4,000. Our 2015 registration turned 400 registered participants and we were able to raise $6,000. Our 4th event, in 2016, also brought in just under 400 participants and a donation of $6,800. This year, we have a mammoth goal of being able to raise $10,000!
The event consists of a full day of wheeling with a group at Rausch Creek. In the early evening, we have dinner which is a cook-out style meal prepared by volunteers. Once everyone has gotten a chance to eat, we begin the raffle in the pavilion behind the main office.
Jeep Beach West is fun in the sun and under the stars on the dunes at Pismo Beach. It is the largest event of its kind where Jeeps gather to camp and play in the dunes and enjoy the nearby trails in California’s Central Valley.
Jeep Beach West was born in 2014 when a few friends came together at Pismo Beach to camp and wheel. Since then, the event has become the premier event for Jeepers looking to enjoy the beach and dunes on the Pacific Ocean. Oceano Dunes is geologically unique and also provides an impressive playground for off-highway enthusiasts from throughout the United States. This off road area is among the most popular and unique of California State Parks. The 5 1/2 miles of beach open for vehicle use and the sand dunes available for off highway motor vehicle recreation are attractions for visitors from throughout the United States.
If you own a 4×4 vehicle and enjoy the overlanding lifestyle or you just want to learn more about this fast growing passion you are invited to join Natural State Overland at Byrd’s Adventure Center, in the beautiful Ozark Mountains of Arkansas October 19 -21 2018, where you will rendezvous with others who share your interest in overland style travel and all the adventure it brings! If you haven’t experienced the trails and backroads of the ozarks, you don’t want to miss this opportunity, and if you have this is your chance to get back out there. Come share your experiences, knowledge, and enthusiasm while you learn from others and talk to vendors about their overland related products and participate in our vendor sponsored raffle all in a family friendly atmosphere! We are also planning various presentations on overland related topics, and trip reports, as well as ample opportunity to get out and explore the beautiful Ozark National Forest. Byrd’s is also hosting their Fall Fly-In this same weekend. So those attending the Rendezvous will have the opportunity to watch these single engine aircraft arrive and depart from Byrd’s grass airstrip!
This is a week long overlanding/ wheeling / road trip / vacation. There are challenges to earn raffle tickets from our sponsors. Keep in mind no trailers we live out of our rigs all week.
