Welcome to Occupy Grayling 2018: Flags of our Fathers
Occupy Grayling is back! We have teamed up with Grand Rapids Jeep Club again this year to provide help before, and during the event.
Flags of our Fathers will begin on Friday, September 21st, 2018 at 12PM EST and end on Sunday, September 23rd at 12:00PM EST. We will be back at River Park Campground again this year for the event. Address is 2607 Peter’s Rd, Grayling, MI 49738.
As with last year, this year’s event will be a charity event to benefit Blue Star Mothers of Michigan. They are Military mothers of all branches of the service, including mothers of recruits, active duty, and honorably discharged Veterans, who are working together toward their mission of helping the Troops & Veterans, honoring the families of our Fallen, and support each other.100% of the proceeds raised from this year’s event will go to 3 chapters; Ionia Kent & Montcalm MI-188, South Kent MI-191 and Ottawa-North Kent MI-194.
The scavenger hunt from previous years is back again. We will still have trail rides from previous years but this year we are adding more trail guides and we will have all types of trail rides from mild to wild available all weekend. We will have trail rides available on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. After our pre-run this summer, we will announce the schedule of trail rides for the weekend. Please watch the Facebook page for updates.
This year, during online registration, we will ask you to decide on your ride preference for Saturday’s big ride. We have several options available.Some rides will have max limits, and possible equipment requirements.
Just like previous years, Saturday will feature our largest trail ride followed by lunch, the scavenger hunt, and our Saturday night cookout. Food and drinks will be provided for the Saturday night cookout. Saturday night also features our prize raffles.
We have worked hard to keep the cost of this years event the same as last years event, and have been succesful. The $25 fee covers registration of vehicle and driver, Saturday dinner for the driver, 1 ticket to the prize raffle, and an event sticker. Each additional passenger 12 and up is $5.00, and every passenger under 12 is $3.00 and will help cover dinner and other prizes.
We will be having a Silent Auction, Prize Raffle, and 50/50 raffle this year. Watch the Facebook page for sponsor announcements, including prize donations.
Event stickers, t shirts, and hoodies, are also available for purchase via the website.
Camping is available as well, and can be ordered through the website. Two types of camping are available. Sites with water/electric are $35 a night (2 Night Stay Only) and Rustic sites are $20 a night (2 Night Stay Only)(1 Tent & 1 Vehicle ONLY). There is currently only 12 electric/water sites available and 20 Rustic sites available. The campground is working hard to add additional sites for this years event. If that happens, we will make an announcement and open those spots up. Please watch or subscribe to the Facebook page to be kept aware of updates. We have also added a waiting list field during the signup process for campsites.
Campsite reservations for Occupy Grayling must be made through OUR website, not by calling the campground directly. Please make sure to read the description of each site when purchasing.
