16th Annual Graves Mountain Military Vehicle Rally in Virginia

Unread post by cgarbee » June 17th, 2024, 12:48 pm

16th Annual Graves Mountain Military Vehicle and Vintage 4x4 Trail Rides and Rally
Labor Day Weekend, August 28 through September 2, 2024
(early arrivals are ok, just let me know...).

A fun filled weekend of trailriding, parts-swapping, and fellowship in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia open to all Military Vehicles and to Civilian Vehicles 25 years old and older. Newer vehicles may be allowed by permission of the organizers.
For More Event Information and Registration, See: https://gravesmountaintrailrides.com/

Since this year is the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings, and we use some of the same trails that the 29th Division trained upon, we will be honoring them during our event this year.

Note that although the website has been updated with this year's registration and information flyer (located under the "register" tab on the left side)., I still haven't figured out how to change the date on the download so it still looks like you are getting the 2018 version until you open it...

Cabell, I may contact you to repost this notice later today. I am in the process of trying to update the site and it has not been going well. Every time it fails I have to run a backup from last month so this would not appear after I do that.

I should either laugh or cry with you...
I will not say how long it took me to update the event website this year... I really need to find a new HTML editor AND document the steps used so that I will remember how to do it next year...

Just let me know...

I'LL BE THERE WITH MY BUDDY (56 CJ3), MY BOYS AND OUR LABS! Looking forward to it, my fav event of the year. Anyone looking to do some real trail riding with 30-45 degree grades, fording, rolling hills, meadows, you name it and you can find it. Clell

He is the person hosting the site...
However, he's not interested in web design...
The current site was ported over from a server hosted by the former NCMVPA President who had some "interesting" ideas about web site development...

We'll see you there with the A2. My brother in law might be bringing an M38.
