Thumbs up Two trackers off road club in the GH parade

I must say the best part of the whole parade was seeing the jeeps . Nice added touch was the job site radios on the bumpers. I sure miss wheeling and my jeeps the mini van just isn't the same

The club will be doing it again Friday the 7Th at 7pm in Coopersville. The person that organize this did an awesome job with the organization and programing all the light synchronization to the music of TSO. We received a lot of great comments regarding the show we put on during the parade. Quite a few said that we had the best entry in the parade. The members that were also involve did a lot of hard work building the boards and controllers for the lights and running all the lights on their Jeeps for the show. If you get a chance come check this out. You wont be disappointed.

Thanks, we had a lot of fun putting it together. Each jeep has an 8 channel wireless controller in it for for lights, the center jeep transmits the light sequencing and broadcasts the music on an empty fm channel, so the jobsite radios were needed to get the sound out.
If you didn't get to see us in Grand Haven, the Coopersville parade is December 7th at 7:00 pm. Come out and have some fun with us!

Come check out the parade at Coopersville at 7:00 pm Friday. We put a lot of work into this show. It was a show stopper in Grand Haven. It was a lot of fun putting this together this is our second year doing this.

It starts at the intersection of Eastmanville and Main and goes east down Main Street to East Street.

You can park at the School on East Street and ride the train for free to and from the parade route.

There have been other groups that have done this but as far as we know no one has done it wirelessly. There are some other videos out there but all the ones we can find show the vehicles linked together.
