Potential sponsors

When do we want to start emailing potential sponsors? I have the list of ones on my email of who I contacted last year and didn't know if we wanted to start contacting people yet or not.
I would say anytime after the holidays. I was going to clean up your posting from who won what last year and from our previous lists.

I might have some time over the next two days of working doubles to get to it.

mac 'holiday money' gyvr

The Midwest Chapter of the North American XJ Association is a chapter of NAXJA incorporated in January of 1999. This will be our 18th Winterfest event. Our primary focus is the gathering of XJ and MJ enthusiasts from the Midwest region of the United States. This yearly event entails two days of trail riding at the Badlands Off-Road Park in Attica, IN. The finale of the event is a dinner and raffle. The proceeds of the raffle support the club with activities throughout the year that support responsible use of public lands through land-use focused organizations, including endorsing the ideals of the Blue Ribbon Coalition, and other regional groups as approved by the membership of the chapter. We have made past donations to the Redbird State Riding area in Dugger, IN as well as other regional donations in the Midwest. Thank you for taking the time to consider donating.

Feel free to have product shipped to me by 02/28/2017.
I will contact these sponsors again

I also have an email out to

KC Highlights
Unlimited Offroad

Got a call into Affordable Offroad. Talked to them at the indy jamboree and they were interested in doing something for us.

Am also gonna stop into local Napa again tomorrow and talk to them about maybe donating another set of wrenches or something. Thought about hitting up a couple local parts stores and talking to them as well.
We need a lunch in the quarry on Saturday sponsor. The past sponsors declined for this year. Any thoughts?

I asked Justin and he's not coming.

I may contact ares and not sure who else that is coming sponsor wise? Maybe Napier?

It's been 30 pizzas for around $320 or so in the past.

I'll ask Napier when I talk to them.

cool, i saw somewhere he said he might come. that would be cool. even if he'd be interested in doing half, i'll call James from Ares and see if he's interested on Wed.
Has anyone considered contacting cavfab possibly? I know they a fairly new company but theyake some pretty neat stuff just a idea.
Warn has been contacted.

I will mail a letter to ARB in the next day or so...srsly...mail a letter...
Contacted Sluffs Grab handles, they just made me an awesome set of paracord grab handles to go all over the Jeep.
Going to send a message to Devil Woman flags too, maybe we can get a cert for a custom flag or a MWC flag.

*Edit, Devil Woman is sending gift certs and some business cards for the tables!
