2nd Annual Ocean State Jeep Festival - Sat August 16, 2014

Postby Eric » Fri Jun 13, 2014 2:49 pm

On Saturday August 16th, 2014 Ocean State Jeepsters in partnership with Paul Bailey's Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram will present the 2nd annual Ocean State Jeep Festival.

This event will feature trail rides on 40 acres owned by the dealership, offroading 101 seminars, kids activities, a show & shine competition, RTI ramp, food provided by Dan's Place of West Greenwich, RI and local vendors.

The existing trails range from stock friendly to difficult and we are planning to expand the trail system over the coming weeks. All vehicles entering the trail system must be properly registered and insured.

See you there!

Correct. This is because our insurance policy only covers vehicles that are registered and insured.

Same policy AFAIK. See question 12 on form B:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/590 ... FORM_B.pdf

NOVA was pursuing the same policy we have through K&K. Here is Nicole's response to Mike Spiller (NOVA President) on the question of buggies:

Mike,

Below are the answers to your questions on the Form B event application.

Line 1) This line should include NOVA as well as the club organizing the event.

Line 12) Our program is specifically for 4x4 vehicles that are licensed and registered for road use. This program also requires that all vehicles have current and valid auto insurance in place. Any vehicles such as “tube buggies” would not be covered under the NOVA policy.

I posted this info to the insurance forum a while ago but have not seen any indication of follow-up with the insurance company from the NEA side. Two years ago OSJ pulled event insurance under a separate form (which I cannot find now) that covered a rock course. The premium was about 2x the normal per-event premium.

This coming Sunday we will be expanding both trails. Stay tuned for pictures.

We had a very productive work day on Sunday. Both trails on the property were significantly expanded and some exciting new obstacles have been opened up. Remaining work includes signage and creating by-passes for the lesser built rigs.

The vendor list includes:
  1. Paul Bailey’s Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram
  2. Dan’s Place (food)
  3. Proline Tactical (firearms & training)
  4. Dels Lemonade (World famous lemonade)
  5. Dragline Offroad (RI-based maker of synthetic winch rope)
  6. Autorust Technicians (RI-based maker of Jeep frame patches)
  7. NBX Bikes (best bike shop in RI)
  8. RI National Guard (rock wall)
  9. On Site Trucking (snow plows)
  10. Great American Jeep Rally (charitable fundraising)
  11. WHJY (live radio feed)
  12. Crawling for a Cure (breast cancer research fundraising)
  13. Kettlebottom (video production & outdoor adventures)
  14. Cutting Edge Graphics (vinyl graphics)
  15. Offroad Elements (Jeep parts & accessories)

We are excited about the trail system and very pleased with the mix of vendors. The 2nd Annual Ocean State Jeep Festival is shaping up to be a great event and we look forward to seeing many of you there. In the mean time here are a few pictures from the trail work day:
