DECEMBER 10th-11th, 2011
OVER-NIGHTER

Well its that time a year again, or at least getting there. So im starting to plan out this years Toy Drive. It's our 5th year for organizing this and I can't believe how fast time flies. This year will be the best so far. We've teamed up with the US Marines to have the event on Camp Pendleton Marine Base this year! Special thanks to TacoDoc for going the extra mile to get it locked down for us.

So, where exactly will the event be held on the Base? Well you'll love this. There's a little known Campground that us civilians don't know about (nope not the beach one sorry) called Lake O'Neill!

We have the FIELD 1 location reserved for us. There's toilets, water, fishing, mtn biking, hiking, paddle boats, playground, and even miniature golf.

You can download a map of the location here. http://www.mccscp.com/sites/default/fil ... nd-map.pdf

DATE
  • December 10th=11th, 2011. (Second Weekend in December!). Not too close to Christmas and New Years and a far enough from Thanksgiving. Pencil it in now!
TIME: From Saturday Check-in 1pm to Sunday Check-out Noon.

FEE's $8.00 per person goes to the base for the campground. You pay me when you get to camp. Im paying ahead of time, so i will work with the honor system here and please do the right thing by finding me or Yoshi at arrival to pay for your camp. Find our teardrop and landcruiser, you can't miss it. If we're not there, i'll have an envelope on the trailer for your fee.

LOCATION:
Exit I-5 at Harbor Drive, proceed north onto Vandergrift Blvd to the Main Gate at Camp Pendleton. Have your ID, registration and proof of insurance handy.

*Note: At the gate, tell the guard that you are going to Lake O'Niell for a Toys for Tots event and that you need a day pass. They will direct you to a large building adjacent to the main gate where you will show your drivers license, registration and proof of insurance in return for a visitor pass that allows your vehicle on base legally. That's it!

Proceed north on Vandergrift Blvd for several miles until you come to the air station (you'll see a large air strip on the left with helos etc and a long row of warehouses on the right).

Keep going on Vandergrift (do not turn left on Basilone or you are headed to San Clemente).

Continue to proceed on Vandergrift (keep left, do not turn on Rattlesnake Canyon).

Just past Rattlesnake Canyon you will see signs for the Naval Hospital, turn LEFT at the light onto Santa Margarita Road to the lake.

Take your first right onto Lakeside Drive AFTER the lake and look for ExPo rigs - you have arrived.

REMEMBER: Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is a Federal Installation. Speed limits and other laws are enforced more strictly than out in town so conduct yourself accordingly.
WHAT IS IT?:
  • So this is how it works. You bring a new unwrapped toy valued at $10 or more to the meet up. You get a raffle ticket for your contribution. We also have 3 categories you can win for prizes (See Below). Check out everyones rigs, meet new people and see some you already know. The Marines will be on site to help out and haul all the donations back to where they need to go.

    FOOD
    We will also be offering up free food in the way of hotdogs, chips, and sodas. All donated by Expo Member MHiscox!

    Note: If you don't want a hotdog and prefer something else, this is a camp out and therefore come prepared with food. Also, bring water and all necessary emergency prep you may need.
SCHEDULE
Check in to arrive is 1pm. Think we'll be starting the grilling around 3pm and start into the raffle about 4pm. All on Saturday. The rest of the time, you can drop off toys (if after the raffle, you won't get a chance to win anything), meander around and oogle the rigs and meet fellow off road enthusiasts from all over the www.

Saturday night 6PM is the Cocktail Hour/Mingle party presented by Sportsmobile. Look for the fleet of SMB's and head that way if you'd like to join in.

Sunday, those who've camped.. will take our time packing up camp and head out by noon.

RAFFLE DRAWING ON SITE
We are starting to contact vendors for Raffle Prizes as of right now, so i don't have a firm list up yet. But if it's anything like the last 4 years, everyone should walk away really happy.

Vendors are welcome as long as they're not selling items. In other words, come, show up, pop open your camper, show people stuff, but don't setup a booth and start selling stuff. Zach from Overland Gourmet is rumored to be showing up. Remember, this event is about the kids.. not about unloading goods. Lets keep it that way.

Notes and Rules to Adhere (More in your Brochure - http://www.mccscp.com/sites/default/fil ... ochure.pdf
Glass Containers are not allowed in any recreational areas.
Campfires are only allowed in designated fire rings and cannot be taller than 2 feet high above the ring.
If you're fishing bring your CA permit.

Dogs are fine as long as they're on leash at all times and they're cool around people, kiddos and other dogs.


If you have any questions feel free to contact me via PM or by Email. Both are listed under my username.

Hope to see everyone there,
