    President's Day Weekend 2018

    President's Day Weekend is coming at Dumont Dunes! Since the early 1970's, the Las Vegas Jeep Club has been hosting their annual Jeep Jamboree at Dumont. This event, consisting of hill climbs and drag races, has been one of the reasons so many duners have made President's weekend a 46-year tradition. Come watch some of the baddest Jeeps, trucks, and dragsters compete at Dumont. President's Weekend is always a busy one so don't forget to keep your head on a swivel and watch out for each other. Vendor Row should is usually full and Comp Hill is always lit at night. Be sure to stay legal because the Rangers will be out in full force keeping everyone in check. If you need a refresher, here is a list of the rules and things to look out for. Holiday passes are required from Feb 13 thru Feb 19, 2018. If you don't have a holiday season pass, you can purchase a $40 weekly holiday permit at the entrance from the machine or you can grab one from a participating off-site vendor. See a full list here. If your OHV isn't registered in your home state, don't forget to grab a CA non-resident use permit sticker too. Dune Mart on vendor row and the Dumont visitor center sometimes have them on hand. Everyone have a fun, safe weekend out there. As always, send us your dune reports and use the hashtag #dumontduneriders on Instagram. We'll do our best to feature your photos!
  7. The 2018 Las Vegas Jeep Club Jamboree will take place on President's Day Weekend February 17-18 at the Dumont Dunes in California. Plans are in place to run the normal format with the Hill Climbs featured on Saturday followed by the traditional 300' Sand Drag event on Sunday. photo courtesy of http://www.nationalsanddragnews.com
