Ouray 2008: Make Your Plans Now!

If you missed the First Annual FJ Summit last July, you probably don’t have the itch that the rest of us do. As soon as the Summit ended, many people on fjcruiserforums.com began asking about the 2008 Summit.

Our questions were answered on October 5th, when Jason made the announcement:

July 16th – 20th, 2008 – Ouray, Colorado.

It’s Official - The FJ Cruiser World will once again invade Ouray, this time for a full 5 days (3 days of organized trail rides). If you’ve not been or heard of Ouray – it’s the self proclaimed ‘jeep capital of the world’ (Although in July it will be the FJ Capital). There are hundreds of miles of the most scenic 4x4 roads you’ll find in the surrounding San Juan mountains. Infamous passes such as Imogene, Black Bear, and Engineer create the perfect location to wheel your FJ, catch up with old friends, and make new ones.

Key changes for this year:
-Five full days – three days of organized trail rides
--Registration/sign-in will be on the July 16th
-The website (http://www.fjsummit.org) should be ready to allow registrations within the next couple of months
-The Best Western is entirely blocked off for the FJ Summit, and will once again be the hub of activity
-More FJ’s will be allowed to register, but there will probably still be a maximum number (TBD)

Other ideas that have been discussed (but are not confirmed)
-Online pre-signup for trail runs
-More “How To” Classes for people new to off roading
-More vendors on-site
-A video documentary of the event
-A ‘parade’ of FJ’s through town - showcasing all the participants
-Use of HAM radios to coordinate runs and any issues that may arise

There are many other great ideas. For more info, visit this story on fjc-mag.com and look for the link to “Summit Suggestion Box”.

If you plan on going and haven’t made accommodation arrangements yet, you should soon. The hotels and campgrounds in Ouray are filling up fast. Visit http://www.fjsummit.org for a list of hotels in Ouray & the surrounding area.
