I would like to thank the Jam committee for the great work this year. I know they had some humps and bumps, and lost a few members of the committee, but they managed to pull through like always. Also, I would like to thank everyone who voted me as Trail Guide of the Year. I never would have expected to recieve the award. Andre, Thanks for the Winch, it'a full-on pimp. Jan, Thanks for the plaque, it's equally or even more pimp.
Most of all, Thanks to all of the participants who came this year. You guys rock, and I love meeting everyone who comes every year. Without you, there would be no Jam!

As a guide and member of the Jam Committee, I just want to thank all the people who came to Jam and had a weekend they'll remember for years to come. As Lance said, you are what makes Jam such a success. I met some great people that came from all over the Maritimes and beyond and I look forward to seeing all of you again next year. I also want to tip my hat to all the guides and people who worked so hard to make this Jam run so smoothly. Thanks everyone, you were awesome.
Many thanks to all that made this weekend happen, it was our first! Had a great time, lots of awesome people and rigs! Bus is booked for next year!!!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem!
Thx Jam committee for the hard work organizing. With the changes at the top, and relative inexperience of the fill-ins, I reserved my opinion until after the event ending. Thought about it some, and it seemed to be a very problem free event this year. Marlene and Larry did a very good jobs as 'newbies' and fill-ins. Thank you for stepping up.
Also thx to Lance for his continued organizational leadership and guidance. You've brought the event to a place where you can now take a deserved rest and spend more time with your family. I think the event will be fine, just leave your phone turned on, eh. It hit home with me of the types of sacrifices you have made over the years to keep this thing running when we were fixing your blown bead/tracbar, and you mentioned it was your wedding anniversary that day. Jeez.
Campground - new sign says 'we cater to offroad events'. Without Fox Mountain playing along - we'd have a very hard time finding a suitable venue. There have been failed attempts at other venues, and Fox Mountain is beyond perfect with the way they treat us. Thank you!
Mudpit - Using the excavator to extract vehicles is a X100 safety upgrade, and the pit workers around with dayglow vests keeping an eye out and controlling what needs to be controlled, to make a SAFE event for everyone there, was noticed by a lot of people. I myself wouldn't even go up there some years, because I didn't want to see a clevis go thru someone's head. Please keep this additional focus on safety and responsible driving. Big props to who-ever was the organizational leader. Thank you.
My trailguides were 'short an eye, couldn't see out the other', one broke half-way thru and we tried to fix him, and the other won Trail-guide of the Year. lol Thx guys, there weren't any clusterfawks on my runs and you kept everyone moving pretty good. Its like herding cats, I know. The long run out to Ghost Train went so smooth I was late to the meeting spot. There's no way 20 rigs are going to beat me to Nictaux while I go grab a coffee, eh? No so!
Was great to see some new faces around, like AdamMac, and those friends you only see once a year like the NB crew w Jimmy Keating, or the Islanders and Peirce's crew. Thx for coming every year and helping make our event a success.
I would like to thank the Jam committee for putting on a wonderful event on again this year and all the friendly jeepers who attended this year, always a pleasure. Good job to the trail guides and congrats to Dan for the trail guide of the year award. Would also like to thank Lance for the spare scout axles he had kicking around and to Stevens and Ray for bringing me a slide hammer. Had a great time this year and will be seeing you all again next year!

First off I would like to thank Marlene for asking me to be a Trail Guide this year. It wasn't how I wanted to do my very first Jam, but I had a great time with awesome fellow guides on Johnson's Settlement (Thanks Larry & Jason ). And especially thank you to Mickey, who was an integral part in keeping our Saturday run going smoothly and for opening his house and yard to us for our lunch break both days. Last but not least, thanks to everyone who ran Johnson's both days. Everyone was a great crew to wheel with.
Oh yeah, thanks Lance for your hard work and dedication (and to everyone else involved in the organization of the Jamboree) to make this such a great event.
This was my first year at jeep jam and just want to say thanks to everyone who made it possible. It was a weekend that will not be forgotten and I will be back next year again!
