Announcing the 29th Annual Spring Willys Reunion is now scheduled. 

Stay Safe & Stay Healthy!

Announcing the 29th Annual Spring Willys Reunion will once again be held at the Bertram Inn located in historic Aurora, Ohio. As always, the show will host a large swap meet where vendors from all over the country will be selling New-Old-Stock and good used parts to help restore your Jeep and keep it original and on the road for years to come.

Friday night we are planning a Pizza Picnic in the parking lot free to everyone registered for the show. Details to come.

Lunch Saturday will be available for purchase on site again.

Dinner Saturday evening will again be in the parking lot Picnic Style with the same folks as last year - The Traveling Smoker of Sean Wagler and will include the main entrée, sides, soft drinks and deserts, so be prepared with lawn chairs and eating out doors with Live Music during dinner.

Cost for the dinner will be $20 per person . (*see note below)

*Plans are in the works for it being a possible free dinner again, so stay tuned...

The 50/50, raffle and door prize drawings will also take place under the big-top tent.

 -----------------------------------

 Our technical event will be a brake rebuild by well known Willys Jeep collector and restoration expert, Joe DeYoung of Mad City Manufacturing, he will be rebuilding  brakes under the big-top tent in the vehicle display area.

 -----------------------------------------------------------

A big hit last year with fixing a participants CJ-2A has prompted us to try a DIY Tech Event:

'Can You Fix It Clinic'
(Under the Big-Top Tent)

1950 Jeepster with F-Head 161
Need help getting it running...

IMPORTANT CORRECTION - the phone number for the host hotel, where it appears on the WEBSITE - where you are directed to in the Flyer - the Bertram Inn - has a typo.

The number to call for Reservations is: 330-995-0200

Yes, correct. Corrected above and below. The invalid phone number appears on THE WEBSITE.  It is correct on the Flyer.

Yes, correct

Let me say that better. It was an error / typo on the phone number that appears on the Website - which that flyer directs you to go to the website - where you would get the phone number to make a reservation at the Bertram Inn. The phone number which appears on that physical, paper flyer is actually CORRECT. It's only if you go to register on the website where it was NOT correct. Sorry.

Art - please check again, it's not just the Area Code. The next 3 digits are supposed to be "995" (not 955).

It's almost that time again!!!LOL

Ron (Jeep Fever) negotiating the rock playground at Southington Off Road Park last year before the Spring Willys Reunion. 

Today I drove out to Southington Off Road Park to try to make arrangements in person for us to wheel the day before the Spring Willys Reunion.  I am thrilled to report that we are all set!  Once again, Cheryl, who takes care of scheduling, was gracious and welcoming.  She went out of her way to accommodate our group on a day they are normally not open.  We will have access to the entire park!!! Clap  North and South!  Plus, Dave said they have added some new obstacles in the South area.Thumbs Up   So, here are the details:

The date is Thursday May 19, 2022 – the day before the Spring Willys Reunion.

Time is 10am to 5pm

Cost is $25.00 per driver payable at Southington Off Road Park

All participants MUST sign an on line waiver prior to coming to the Park. Here is the link:

http://www.southingtonoffroad.com/rules---waiver.html

We must enter off of Rt. 82 at the south end of the Park – not through the main entrance on Silica Sand Rd.  Go up the drive to the big building on the right.  The holster shop is in the corner of the building where we will check in and pay.

The address for your GPS is:  10025 State Rt. 82 Windham, OH  44288.  It is just a driveway that runs north off Rt. 82 and is easy to miss.  Here is a picture of it.  I am planning to have a sign made to help our group find it.

 

 Southington Off Road Park is only 22 miles east of the Bertram Inn.  Rt.82 is a heavily traveled 2 lane and the way to go if you’re able to travel at highway speed or are towing a trailer.  If you want a more leisurely trip, Pioneer Trail Rd. is a rolling back road that runs parallel and just south of Rt. 82, and is perfect for Willys speed.  

For anyone who wants to clean their jeep up after wheeling, there is a 3 bay manual car wash right on the way in Garrettsville at the corner of Rt. 82 and Liberty St. behind the bowling alley.  There are 2 more car washes in Aurora not far from the hotel.

We will be all alone in the Park, so no amenities.  I would suggest that you bring plenty of drinking water, pack a lunch, and bring a dust mask.  We will leave our cell number, CB channel, and FRS channel with Cheryl at the holster shop so late arrivals can find us.  Also, Southington Off Road Park is really going out of their way to make this happen for us so let’s be extra considerate.  If we see trash, let’s pick it up.  And be sure to thank the folks at SOR for all the extra effort.

As the date gets closer I would like to give SOR a rough headcount.  I you are planning to wheel with us please post it here on the CJ2A page.   Looking forward to seeing everyone!

-Barry

 PS - Here's a video Seth made of last years Southington Off Road adventures!  If you don't want to attempt the obstacles it's fun to cruise around together and cheer others on!
