UVU Auto Expo - 5-19-2018

0 comments

Another great year supporting UVUs automotive technology students/scholarships at the Auto Expo. The weather was great, there were quite a bit more 4x4 and offroad related vehicles this year compared to the past including UVUs sweet electric crawler, the swap meet had quite a few great buys, and of course all the slick cars/trucks/and motorcycles to check out. We also were able to make quite a few contacts with other enthusiasts and businesses looking to get involved with protecting our sport along with joining in on trail rides which was awesome.

 

Im particularly pleased about finding a somewhat rare heater system for my CJ2A, and the spare rims, oil can, and Jeep grill addition were icing on top.

 

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the event. If you have any pictures from the show, cool items you found, or other stories to share feel free to do so.

Til' Next Time!

  • BOAR returned again this year for the 4th year of the Wasatch Wigeon Outdoor Youth Fair. Our members have been supporting this event since its first year and we had another great time showing kids that there is tons to do outdoors that is load of fun. This year we brought back the roof top tent for kids to climb in, s'more making station complete with campfire, ATV simulator courtesy of the DNR, and of course lots of swag items and balloons which were a hit. Despite having fewer vendors this year due to a scheduling issue with the park, there were more kids than ever and we were quite slammed keeping up with the rush. The event topped off with a large raffle where practically everyone won some great prizes. Thanks again to the Wasatch Wigeons for hosting this event again. We love that this event is free to the public, family oriented, and is geared towards getting folks outside. Til' Next Time!
  • The 2019 Salt Lake Off-Road Expo has ended and I wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out to support the expo, and stopped by the BOAR booth to say hi. It really is an awesome experience to have so many great off-road related groups and vendors all coming together. I want to give a special thanks to all those who volunteered their time to run the booth and make the event a success for our group. It was great hearing you share your experiences in the club and the passion you have for the outdoors. As you know the event was incredibly busy and we absolutely could not have managed everything without your help. We look forward to seeing many new faces joining us on our adventures, and have made some great industry connections for future events that will be coming up. On a personal note it was an honor again this year to be asked to speak on an off-road club panel alongside some truly great folks that I look up to and respect. Thank you to those who attended the panel, asked questions, and learned how to get involved along with some insight into how our sport has evolved over the years. We are already looking forward to next year and appreciate the opportunity this event provides us to connect with great people. Til’ Next Time!
  • A quick thank you to everyone who was able to make it out to our year end get together last night. It was a fun evening with food, contests, games(including some serious looking ping pong rounds and Mario kart sessions), give aways, and a brief recap of the groups impact during the year. Thank you to everyone, and every group, who made the year such a great success! As usual I failed miserably at taking pictures so if you happened to snap some please share. Til’ Next Time! P.S. - To those who re-gifted your koozies to me, I will find you.
