2012 Fall Gathering Registration (NOW OPEN)

24 08 2012

A little late, but the Official 2012 Fall Gathering Registration is now open!!!

Thursday, September 27th to Sunday, September 30th

This premier off-road event will be held at Gretchen’s in Hancock, NH and is a family-friendly event open to all Toyota off-road enthusiasts.

Thank you for attending the Yankee Toys Fall Gathering! We are excited to once again host you here in beautiful New Hampshire for a weekend of camping and offroading with your fellow Toyota 4×4 owners.

We will be staying at “Gretchens” in Hancock, NH, all trail runs will depart from there and the Saturday BBQ raffle will be held there as well. Sites will be first-come-first served and you can claim your site when you arrive. Due to the wide open nature of the property, we cannot set aside a specific site for you ahead of time. We reserve the whole property for the Club, so there will be plenty of room.
You must Pre-Register for the Friday and Saturday Trail Runs. Sunday trail runs will be first come-first served and will be half day runs.

Payment can be made using a Check or Money Order Payable to “Yankee Toys” or by PayPal to yankeetoyotas@gmail.com If you use PayPal pleaset add a $5.00 handling charge. Please send your filled out registration form and Check or Money Order to: Ernie Becker, 10 Chandler Way, Dover, NH 03820.

You MUST be a Yankee Toys member to participate.

You can join or renew your membership on this form. Membership runs from October to October, unless you recently joined mid-year you must renew your membership now.
Please be advised that the property has limited facilities. Rustic Bathrooms and showers. We are not expecting any water issues this year but I strongly advise that you bring your OWN drinking water and plan to “rough it.”

Please note that trail damage is always a possibility. Drivers are responsible for their own vehicles and occupants. Event Managers reserve the right to switch a driver or vehicle to an easier trail run if your vehicle does not meet the requirements for that trail, or if your vehicle is unsafe in any way.  (Vehicle Inspection Checklist)

Limit of 10 trucks per trail, per day. All Trail requests are on a first-come-first-serve basis. Sign-ups are FIRM. There will be no switching of trails on-site without permission. If the Event Managers feel you have signed up for a trail that your vehicle does not meet the requirements for, or that your vehicle is unsafe in any way, you will be asked to forfeit your spot. Please respect their recommendation for the sake of others who would be on the trail with you and to be fair to all who sign up.

Registration is available here…
