We will begin the day at Giant City Lodge, gathering at 10 am, first Jeep out at 11 am.
🍳 The Lodge will be serving breakfast from 8-1030 am, and you will want to check that out! They also have cabins available for overnight lodging if you want to make it a long weekend in the area.
From Giant City Lodge, at 11 am we will begin our exploration through the forest roads of the beautiful scenic 🍇🍷Shawnee Wine Trail, including stops at Owl Creek, Blue Sky, and Von Jakob wineries. We will announce raffle details 🎁 closer to the event date. Grab your friends and join us for this event. We can't wait to see you all!
~~ If you run a business and you'd like to set up a booth to promote your business at the final stop, Von Jakob, please email us at 618Jeeps@gmail.com. Event T-shirt and Club sponsors may set up for free; non-sponsors will pay a $25 fee. All vendors will be required to donate an item for the raffles. Space is limited, so email us ASAP! ~~
*Note - We will abide by social distancing guidelines, and wineries will have their own COVID guidelines, by which we must adhere.*
