As we sit back and recover from CAMP NL XIV it is with gratitude in our hearts that the OF4WD and organizers of Camp NL would like to thank all the participants who came out to this event; without you, there would be no funds raised for charity, no side splitting good laughs, no epic on-trail photo shoots, and no warm wheeling memories to hold on to during the cold winter months. The organizers of this event do so never looking for recognition; but CC and Colin and the backup crew of OF4WD Board members and dedicated spouses were relentless in their efforts to pull off the best NL yet – and it’s with humble pride that they plan to set the bar higher next year.
A thank you needs to go out to our trail guides – these people volunteer to be our trail leaders and tail gunners, rescue crew, spotters, and all around ambassadors for good times. Good guides lead good trails, and good trails make for great stories, so thank you again to everyone who donned an orange shirt, got hot, got dirty, and got wet; you’re the front line for this event and you have the ability to make it or break it. This year every single one of our trail guides knocked it out of the park; but special shout-outs need to be reiterated for Glenn, Adam & Stirling who all went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that their participants had the best day on the trail possible. The glowing reviews are still rolling in!
Not one single ounce of this could have been pulled off without the continued support of the OF4WD’s most ardent supporter, in business since the late 80s, Just Jeeps is Canada’s neighbourhood off-road shop. The title of headline sponsor was not taken for granted by the Just Jeeps crew, they donated prizes to our raffle that included suspension seats, a lift kit, a soft top, compressors, and enough hats and shirts to clothe a small nation. Also, *Adrian, we don’t know if you know him, but he’s the all-around good guy who volunteers, donates, trail guides, hands out coozies, and manages the shop that will get you hooked up for whatever off-road and jeep accessory you could ever possibly need.
*Adrian was a loan from Just Jeeps, NL was not actually allowed to keep him, he was returned without significant damage and everyone hopes to see him back again for NL XV!
Saturday night’s charity raffle was the most successful one to date, with a whopping ten thousand tickets sold! This is a spectacular contribution on the part of our participants, and not one dollar would have been spent without every other thoughtful and original prize donation by the event’s sponsors. There were winches, compressors, lights, light bars, recovery gear, gift certificates, gears, chairs, and swag on swag on swag.
Camp NL’s Sponsors are as follows:
4 Wheel Parts
Rock Spyder 4×4
Off Road Addiction
The Gear Center/Pat’s Driveline
At the end of the day, everyone involved is humbled and appreciative of how well CAMP NL XIV went! We hope to see everyone in 2017!!!
