Harris Mountain trail ride & fundraiser in Granby, MA
Come enjoy a day on the trail while raising money to help the property owners who recently lost everything in a house fire.
Article about the fire... http://www.gazettenet.com/Fire-destroys-Granby-home-9277138

There is a 60 rig limit, and open to the public and ALL rigs from stocker to buggies.

This is not an NEJeep trail ride, but we encourage everyone to go if they can. It will help the family, plus you get your Jeep on the trail.

Details
As we all know Harris Mountain just got hit pretty hard with the loss of pretty much all they have due to a house fire. The family is safe but still could use our help. What better way to help them than to get our jeep family together to wheel for a good cause!
Minumum requirements: front and rear tow points, 31s. This place is stock friendly and up!

Cost: $20 plus a non perishable item, food, books, toys, clothing, spare tools if you have any, etc. All proceeds go to the family!

I'll be there. I've wheeled the property a number of times and will be a trail leader for the moderate trails. scott cairns is leading the buggies and jess is leading the stock group. should be a good day and raising money for a good family going through a tough time.

This is an AWESOME place.  40 + showed up to wheel.    our club should look in to having an event there.
Elizabeth Saunders,  the home owner, was there with her two sons.  She was very appreciative of the 4 wheel Community for all the donations.
Her sons (in their 20's) have spent a lot of time on the trails.   Trails are very well made. and there is some thing for everyone.
Thanks you to:
Ian
Mark
Todd (how also helped lead)
and the Club
NEJeep has left a good impression.
