Bloomsburg Fair Board CANCELS annual 4 Wheel Jamboree in Bloomsburg, PA

4x4 Enthusiasts Everywhere...we need your input


Letter from our company's President

July 4, 2006

To: Our Many Friends, Participants and Sponsors

From: Bruce Hubley, President Special Events Performance Series and The 4 Wheel Jamboree Nationals

Subject: Cancellation of 4 Wheel Jamboree Nationals at Bloomsburg Fairgrounds-July 7, 8 and 9


The recent floods and severe weather in Northeast Pennsylvania lead the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds to cancel our annual 4 Wheel Jamboree event in Bloomsburg. We were fully prepared to produce the event this weekend. We had a team of 20 workers and reclamation specialists on the ground at the Bloomsburg fairgrounds working relentlessly to prepare the grounds for the show. Despite our valiant efforts, the town and the fair board decided otherwise.

Please understand that in the twenty-five year history of the 4 Wheel and Off Road Jamboree series, we have never, ever cancelled an event. I fully recognize that many of you must request vacation time months in advance, work hard to get your 4x4 ready for the show and spend hundreds of hours preparing for the event. Because of your long time commitment to us, I really wish that the outcome was different.

We’ve negotiated with the fair board and agreed to reschedule the 19th Annual 4 Wheel Jamboree Nationals in Bloomsburg Friday August 18 thru Sunday August 20. After checking travel schedules for monster trucks that you come to enjoy at the event and some of our vendors, it appears that some of them are available on that weekend. After checking with area hotels, it appears that there are rooms that weekend. We have put in place a system where you can call us and we will quickly change your reservation to the new show dates.

But you are the backbone of the show. Without 4x4 trucks at the event, we have no show.

So I need your help. Would the rescheduled event work into your summer plans? I really need to hear from you. Would you be so kind to let me know by e-mail if you could change your plans and attend a rescheduled event? You can e-mail me at [email protected] and let me know your thoughts.

We certainly hope you can join us in August. Honestly, we want to host the event for each and every one of you and that remains our commitment to our loyal 4x4 enthusiast base.

Sincerely,


Bruce Hubley
President

that town is still a mess, so it's kind of understandable that the board did what they did but sucks for those who come from states away, even canada. I feel bad for those who take the trip to find out when they get there that it's been cancelled. I know not everybody preregisters and doesn't know a thing till they get there. now I have time to perfect my burnout abilities :p never done a burnout contest and plan on doing it in Aug.
