Default Win a Jeep Scrambler...SOA charity Scrambler updates! (TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE)

Here's your chance to win a S-W-E-E-T Jeep Scrambler, and contribute to charity at the same time.

*****

EDIT (5/14/2007):
Tickets are now officially available ($5 each)!
www.cj-8.org/charity8
*****

About 16 months ago, the Scrambler Owners Association (S.O.A.) kicked off the "S.O.A. Great 8 Restoration Charity Project". The mission of this project is simple...
Mission:
The (Jeep) Scrambler Owners Association (S.O.A.) will (re)build a complete Jeep Scrambler CJ-8 from donated parts & labor. The vehicle build-up, its subsequent attendance at Jeep/4WD events, and raffling it off for charity will build awareness of the S.O.A. and Jeep Scramblers in general.
This is a nationwide project, so pulling the logistics together presented an exciting challenge. The rolling chassis was assembled in Virginia, while a rust-free OEM Scrambler body was restored in Moab, Utah. The two will be brought together at the 3rd Annual "National Scramble" event in Moab in June (look for blurbs in Jeep/4WD magazines in the following months). The project build will then continue in Kansas.

This project has a great selection of high-quality parts...

Vehicle Features:

Chassis:
Drivetrain:
Body/Exterior:
Interior:
  • Laredo Seats
  • OEM Center Console

Misc:
  • Ultimate Air MultiForce 10# Systems with UA's Grip Gaurd Handle

Raffle tickets will be sold for only $5 EACH, and ticket sales will begin within the next 2-3 months (check back at cj-8.org for updates)! The raffle will occur in June or July of 2007. All proceeds will be split equally between Saint Jude Children\\\\\\\\\\'s Research Hospital & the BlueRibbon Coalition. These organizations were voted upon by members of cj-8.com.

See cj-8.org for more information on the Scrambler Owners Association, and continued updates on this charity project. Please e-mail Craig Emenaker (Project Manager) at project@cj-8.org with additional questions, or if you are a business interested in sponsoring this great project.

EDIT (2/20/2007): Lots of Kansas "Stage 2" Build/Assembly Pics here!

Thanks,
Craig

P.S. - I attached a couple images of some display boards that will accompany the vehicle display in Moab. These were done by my buddy Mat (matnic). The first has project details/photos, and the second has sponsors & contributors.

No pictures here or on the CJ8 site of your project. (?)

I'm currently working on uploading some. The ones people have posted on cj-8.com can only be viewed by members logged into that site.

Let me know if you can see the photos in
THIS CJ-8.ORG DIRECTORY (2 pages total in this gallery). We have more photos to add. It's just been a hectic scramble (no pun intended) to get everything ready for display in Moab in another week. :cool:

EDIT: See pic in original post.

Thanks for keeping us updated Craig. I know I'll put $$ in the raffle when it starts. It's a good cause and a chance to win a CJ-8.

Thanks Roger.

For everyone else, I added some pics to the original post. These will not be the wheels/tires we'll actually use...they're just "rollers". We're still looking for a wheel/tire sponsorship.

Thanks,
Craig

I'll post a follow-up on ticket sales, RJ. You'll probably be able to get them from me, but we may just have it all handled at the organization level (by the Scrambler Owners Association Board of Directors). Once we get past the National Event (6/22-6/24 in Moab, UT), I'll have time to address the specific details in regards to the tickets. The other thing we're in the process of doing is discussing all the legal issues in regards to the raffle itself, required disclaimers, etc. I actually hope to have these things worked out, and have tickets printed & ready to sell by early August.

Stay tuned...

Craig

I also wanted to bring attention to the fact that three (3) of our sponsors are local Michigan companies:

It's great to have the local support!

Tickets are still in-the-works (sorry...we're working on it).

I uploaded a TON of new charity project pics the other day. There are now 7 pages of pics on the "SOA Great 8 Restoration Charity Project" Gallery on cj-8.org. Take a look, drool on your keyboard a little, and hang tight, as raffle tickets should be available soon (crossing fingers).

This should be a public gallery. I'll ask the site administrator what's up. Thanks for letting me know.

OK guys, try THIS PHOTO DIRECTORY again. The site owner/administrator said he changed permissions to make the gallery public. Let me know if you can view the pics.

Thanks,
Craig
