2022 Jeep 101 - June 4th
« on: May 07, 2022, 04:15:06 PM »
Now that we can mostly say the pandemic is in the rear view mirror; the Calgary Jeep Association is pleased to one again announce our 11th Annual Off-Road 101 Course!

This is a one day, family friendly course that is open to anyone that will introduce participants to the basic skills that are necessary during an Off-Road adventure, as well as safe and environmentally friendly practices while on the trail.

Rough outline of the day:

The course will take place at the Mclean Creek off highway land use area.  We will be meeting at the Mclean Creek store from 7:30 am to 8:30 am. At 9am we'll start with introduction to off-roading instruction, along with various demonstrations to get you acquainted with your jeeps capabilities. Around noon we'll have a short lunch break (you’re responsible to bring your own lunch as well as addition food and drinks the rest of the day).  Then we'll head out for a trail ride with CJA members providing instruction and support throughout the day.  Please note that this is an off-roading activity and there is always the possibility that damage and scratches can occur to any vehicle.  The trail guides will do their best to prevent / minimize any potential damage to the vehicles, but the potential is always there.

The number of registrants will be limited to 20.
