Dear Jeep Creeper,
Thank you for participating in the Jeep Creep for St. Jude 2021! We are looking forward to a great event and hopefully some amazing weather. The conditions are perfect to raise funds for the lifesaving mission of St. Jude – Finding cures. Saving children.
In preparation for the day, please read the below information for important details about the event.
There will be two packet pickup dates prior to the event where you will receive your shirt, jeep medallions and all the other goodies in your packet. You can have one person pick up for your group if you wish. We will have the packets sorted by the Jeep Driver with passengers arranged with them. You can pick up on either of the below dates at Uftring in Pekin:
Saturday, August 14th, 12:30 – 3:00PM
Wednesday, August 18th, 4:30 – 7:00PM
EVENT DAY – August 21st
Uftring Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram – Pekin
140 Radio City Drive
Pekin, IL 61554
Arrive at Uftring Pekin between 9:15 and 10:00AM for check in and get assigned to your route for the Creep! Do not enter Uftring through the main entrance off of Route 29. Please enter by turning onto Main St. at the stop light, then turn right before the Casey's - this will bring you into Uftring’s back lot where you will be greeted and directed to a route lane for parking.
Once in your route lane, you will receive a map and turn by turn directions. If you wish to travel with a group of other friends, please plan to arrive together and let the Jeep Creep host know how many jeeps are in your party. We recommend no more than 6 jeeps in a group and we will be sure to put you all in on the same route.
If you did not pick up your packet ahead of time, please proceed to registration tables inside the building. You will get your packet and t-shirt there. If you registered after the shirt cutoff date (after July 21st) we will try to accommodate your size with extra’s that we ordered, but if your size is not available, we can order your shirt and get to you at a later date. We will be taking pictures throughout so we’d like to see everyone wear their Jeep Creep shirts the day of the event. Important: Each packet contains wristbands for participants. These must be worn the day of the event. Additionally, the Designated Driver must wear their DD shirt the day of the event.
We will have some refreshments and donuts during the morning check in at Uftring and you’ll also have time for a quick lunch at your 2nd stop. Leave some room in your belly though… the Woolly Bugger at Sankoty Lakes will have some great food for purchase!
Your day will consist of creeping around some fantastic country roads. Some turns will be marked with a Jeep Creep sign to help guide you. At each of the stops there will be “Olympic” competition games where you can participate to earn tickets for door prizes to be drawn at Sankoty Lakes. Bring your $5 bills for the games! You will get one ticket for playing and one ticket for each “win”. The more you play, the more chances you will have for awesome door prizes! Our team and volunteers will be in bright orange shirts to assist you at all stops and throughout the day. Turn in your tickets when you arrive at Sankoty.
Please obey the laws of the road, this is a creep, there is no value in getting anywhere first. Just take your time, don’t speed and have a designated driver when partaking in alcoholic refreshments at any of the stops on the route.
We know you will have fun on your route and enjoy your day. Watch your clock and be sure to arrive at our final destination at Sankoty Lakes by 3:30. When you arrive at Sankoty, the driver will need to show the guard shack their wristband and you will be waved through to parking on the left. We will have a full house at Sankoty and seating will be at a premium so please feel free to throw a lawn chair in your Jeep to set up in the grass to enjoy the evening. It will be a fun ending event and we have a bunch of door prizes to give away! There will be a 50/50 drawing, a live auction with some awesome items, and entertainment by JOE STAMM BAND!
Thank you, and see you on Saturday, August 21st at the kick off at Uftring!
