Oregon 2018

Greetings and Salutations,

Spring has definitely sprung here in Southern Oregon. Time to plant flowers and gardens, and start mowing that lawn.

Another exciting thought is that the Oregon Event is just around the corner! Due to a scheduling snafu the event has been delayed one month.

This year the event will be help August 21 - 26. Yes, this date interferes with Monterey's car week, sorry about that, but it was the best we could do.

We are in the same facility again, Apserkaha (http://jacksoncountyor.org/parks/Campin ... rkaha-Park), those that have been know what a gem this place is. Those that have not been to an Oregon Event in the last few years, you really should consider coming back. And if you have never been to an Oregon event you are missing out.

Renting a facility like this is not inexpensive, I have the down payment and deposit covered, but we still owe $1400.00. That may sound like a lot, but if just 50 people pay a paltry $35 we are in the black. For those doing the math the facility rents for $350 a night plus $250 deposit.

If you would like to contribute to the rent please do, you can use PayPal (ajossy@gmail.com) to shoot me a private message for my address if you want to send a check.
Additionally you should be able to contact the Jackson County Parks Office directly to make a payment via credit/debit card. Their number is (541) 774-8183. Be sure to tell them you are calling for the Fiat event or give them my name.


I am so looking forward to seeing all of you in my favorite camping area.

Also those of you interested in Autocross the local club (www.ssccmedford.org) is having a double event the week prior to our event (August 18-19). You can stay at the track for the weekend, enjoy Southern Oregon for a day then head up the Mountain on Tuesday. Our check-in time is 3:00 PM on Tuesday 8/21.

Get this on your calendar, get your vacation requests submitted, get ready for OREGON!

See you on the Mountain,

This post ends up in a weird place, being under the Oregon 2017 Forum... At any rate, I send my funds in so I guess I'm committed! (Like there was any question!).

Oregon 2018 update

Post by andy » Fri Aug 10, 2018 10:10 am

It's just around the corner! August 23-26, site opens on Auust 21 for you early birds.

Weather is well, a mixed bag. The tempratures should be decent, mid to upper 80s at the event site.

The concern is smoke. The event site is at a higher elevation (~4500 feet) and has better atmospheric ventalation than the valley (where everyone lives). Medford and Ashland have been inundated with smoke from wold fires for more than a month now. Air quality has been in the unhealthy to Hazardous levels for several weeks.

I expect that there will be smoke visible at the lake, but is should be a haze, not omnipresent in your face smoke like we have in the valley.
There are no fires in the vicinity of the event site, they are all many miles away.

Also we will have a huge beach area this year, the lake is at 46% of capacity due to severe lack of rain and snow over the winter.

My intent here is not to cause anyone to stay home, but awareness of current situation here.

Looking forward to some time in the woods with some good Fiat Folk!

I was wondering how the drive up I-5 would be, especially through Redding. Might look at some alternate routes but I'll worry about that next week. Counting down the days now!
