Trailered unlicensed off road vehicles could therefore violate motor vehicle laws when returning to the start. Be sure to consider this if you intend to drive an unlicensed off road vehicle.

The lodge is one street west of main, between 21st and 23rd on Pratt Street. We'll be in the north hall. Folks who arrive early will need to enter at the main entrance, take the 2nd left, off the lobby, enter the middle hall and continue north to the north hall. The front door is a key card door but there is a button for the bar tenders to open the door. Those that arrive early can prop the door open on east side of the north hall so folks can park on the east side of the building and enter through that door.

TRR Trivia – August 2019

By Christy Howe

Last month’s trivia question was presented by Mike C.
1. What was the Jeep RV called?
2. When did it come onto the market?

1. The Jeep CJ5 Camper
2. 1968 or 1969 are acceptable answers

CJ5 Camper
This was another stumper for the group. Plenty of people were brave and ventured guesses, while other answers came in such as “You got me” and “You got me again”, “No idea”, and “Yeah, right!”. However, Russ actually knew the answer to the second part and scored one point with his correct answer of 1969.

Since this resulted in essentially no change to the points total, Paula K still holds the lead for 2019 with 9 points. Paula is followed by Vic W with 8, and Adam M and Christy H are tied for third place with 7 points each, and several people have 6 or less. And of course, Russ now is sitting pretty with 1 point!

This month’s trivia question will be brought to you by Adam M.
