I'll come. I gotta meat (not mispelled) Henley.

Grand Only was my vote. Oh and I think I could probably drag 2dgrez away from his steak joint.

Just make sure it is well after GSW. Oh and Where is this place in Minn. I am in Minot ND.

Thanks man.

Hey anyone have some pictures of this place? What kind of terrain is it? I suppose being close to the lake it will be muddy and soft with lots of roots?

Just out of curiosity, why is it during the week? There's a good possibility I will come up Friday after work on the 9th, wheel the 10th/11th and head out if any others plan the same. Can't take anymore days off work; my 3 weeks are already booked up!

I'm in as long as the ZJ survives GSW and this still fits into my calander (I think it will.)

However, I'm voting for GRAND slam. It's not TJ slam, XJ slam, or any other kind of slam. it's a GRAAAAAND slam!

Only exception I've seen that made any sense at all was at GSMW last year where the trail guides were in TJ's. We needed guides.

Call me crazy ;)

heeal yea. I dont care about the guides, i guess, but it does seem kinda weird that a bunch of ZJ.Wjs show up and need other to show them the trails!! when its not like that at all actually ... :smoke:

and it will survive, the show must go on.

As a Grand Slam organizer who has spent a LOT of time setting up similiar events in Utah, Colorado, and in Arizona, I wholeheartedly agree with Sandy in that the name "Grand Slam" needs to be reserved exclusively for Grand Cherokee runs only. There is no reason why the guides can't jump in with the driver of a Grand and lead the trail. I'm reasonably certain that Clay Cissell who runs this site would agree that the "Grand Slam" name needs to be preserved and protected for exclusively Grand Cherokee events. E-mail him and ask him before we move forward further.

(BTW, if you guys are hell-bent on inviting other rigs, please, please, PLEASE name it something differently...like "Gilbert Jeep-Freid" or "Minnesota All-Jeep Invitational" or something. I just got home from running trails all weekend in Moab at Easter Jeep Safari with nearly exclusively ALL Wranglers...and most of my buddies run either TJs or XJs, so I'm not a racist or anything, lol. However, I beg of you to please preserve the "Grand Slam" name.)

Very Sincerely,
Kevin

I agree. Grand Slams are for Grand Cherokee's. Call it something else if your gonna invite and allow other rigs.

Oh and not that I am vehicle specific, but I won't be driving over to wheel with just anybody. If it's not a Grand Slam...I'll just drive 7 hours south to the Black Hills to wheel with just anybody.

agreed, this is going to be a Grand Cherokee only event......

I do need an idea on how many people are coming and that want to camp, I need to reserve teh spots, since they do fill up quite quickly in the summer.....
