In 2003, we held our first Grand Gobblers JAKES event. That (pioneer, inaugural, original) event was attended by roughly 80 enthusiastic kids who braved a cold, wet day in May to participate in a variety of outdoor activities. Over the last 15 years, our event has grown to one of the largest and best JAKES Events in the country, peaking at just over 800 attendees a few years ago. Along the way, our small committee has been joined by more dedicated members and an ever-growing number of volunteers, without whom an event of this scope would not be possible. Unfortunately, some of us old-timers are feeling a bit worn down. While our passion for the event remains strong, our drive to tackle the vast amount of preparation that is necessary in the months leading up to the event seems to be suffering. For this reason, we find ourselves making the difficult decision to cancel our event for the first time. We will be scheduling a JAKES Event for September 2020. Our hope is to use the coming year to breathe new life and enthusiasm into our JAKES program. In order to achieve that goal, we are putting out a call for new committee members. If you are a parent who has attended with your children and want to be part of something that brings joy to many kids, or have grown up participating in our event and would like to pass forward something important to the next generation, we would love to hear from you. If you are interested, please contact us soon, as we are going to start planning for our next event right away.
