The 3rd Annual ProjectBronco Club meet
Don't miss your chance to be a part of history!
-- At the Indiana 4x4 Jamboree in Indianapolis, Indiana September 19th-21st
ProjectBronco.COM 3/04/03 -- Once a year ProjectBronco.COM holds its annual club meet at a major 4x4 Jamboree as a fun way to get all 78-79 Bronco owners together so everyone can meet face-to-face. The third annual club meet will be held this year at the Indiana 4x4 Jamboree in Indianapolis. The Indianapolis Jamboree is THE largest 4x4 event in the country and has more fun-filled events and activities than you can shake a stick at! Last year the second annual club meet was held at the Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania 4x4 Jamboree. We had over 20 Broncos in attendance and had members come from as far away as Texas! Let me tell ya, all of us had more fun that should be legally allowed!
Due to the EXTREME popularity of last year's Jamboree, we are expecting around 40 (not a misprint) members to attend as of this writing, and it's only March! Still, we need to make absolutely sure that ProjectBronco Club is the first or second largest club in attendance so that we can have our own spot reserved just for us.
Last year every member that attended sent in their registration individually to Specialty events. Because of this, the PJB club did not get credit for all 20 members in attendance. Therefore, this year we are collecting all of the registrations to Specialty events at ProjectBronco and will be mailing all of them in at the same time!
If you are interested in joining us this year, keep reading the FAQ section below to find out how.
The Indianapolis 4x4 Jamboree is, of course, a public event, so anyone can attend the Jamboree just by paying general admission charges at the gate. However, the ProjectBronco Club is going to be part of this year's Jamboree and will have an area sectioned off inside the event where club members can park their trucks and hang out with the club. We hope to have our own area reserved for us at this year's club meet. In any case, parking spaces will be limited and we expect the spaces to fill up VERY QUICKLY. All 4x4 clubs that do not have a space reserved for them (i.e. all clubs for the exception of the two largest) have to have any ropes or tape they used to section off an area for their club taken down by 9:30 in the morning, so in the event that we do not qualify for our own reserved space, any spaces we don't use will fill up very quickly by other 4x4 owners. Therefore, ProjectBronco club members and their guest get to park first. If we have room we will welcome any 78-79 Bronco owners, and anyone attending the event is more than welcome to come on in and check out the club.

One of the reasons ProjectBronco chose to hosts its annual club meets at various Specialty Events 4x4 Jamborees is because of the nearly endless activities to participate in during the event. However, the ProjectBronco club has a few activities of our own planned as well.
We we will publish the itinerary of planed events soon, so get ready! We have some REALLY BIG events planned for 2003!!!! Please come back later for more info!
It would be impossible for us to provide a complete list of all of the things you might need or want to bring to the 2nd Annual PJB Club Meet and the PA Jamboree, but here is a general list of things that could come in handy.
The PJB club will bring plenty of food to the event, but it wont hurt to bring some extra food that can be cooked on a charcoal grill and some extra drinks for you and your guest.
A tarp that can be stretched between two trucks incase of rainy weather.
A rain jacket, just in case.
Plenty of spare parts
Extra oil, antifreeze, and transmission fluid.
No, you do not have to have a 78-79 Bronco to park your vehicle with the PJB Club. All PJB Club members with 73-79 Ford F-series 4x4 trucks, Early Broncos, or late model Broncos are 100% welcome. Also, some members will be bringing guest to our club meet that own other types of 4x4s. Because they are guest of PJB club members, they are welcome to park with us (if space is available).
Note: If you are planning to bring a quest to the PJB club meet, please notify the PJB Club Coordinator of your intensions ahead of time so we know how many people to expect, especially if they plan on bringing their own vehicles.
The ProjectBronco Club is a family-oriented 4x4 enthusiast club and therefore does not condone, promote, endorse, or encourage the consumption of alcohol at any of its official club meets. Special Events did not allow alcohol at last year's 4x4 Jamboree.
