Interactive Drive Around Oneida Lake
Due to COVID-19 closures and restrictions, JATB 2020 cannot be held at Sylvan Beach
JATB 2020 will be held as an interactive drive around Oneida Lake. Go solo or convoy with fellow Jeepers to find adventure and get out of the house on August 2nd, 2020.
The day starts at Smitty’s Repair and Restoration, 2800 NY-49, West Monroe, NY 13167.
Registration and check-in open at 9 AM, but will be open all day. Take the day at your own pace, and take advantage of all-day registration so we don’t have 400 Jeeps lined up at 9 AM. NY-49 is a much busier highway than the entrance to Sylvan Beach. You can pre-register online for $15 or pay cash/card at registration for $20. Cash is preferred day-of to keep the line moving.
Jeeps will roll through registration at Smitty’s Repair and receive a packet including a map with points of interest along Oneida Lake. There will also be hints for a scavenger hunt. Participants who take a photo with all of the scavenger hunt spots will receive a little memento/souvenir along with a spot on the JATB website photo gallery. All registrants will also receive a 2020 JATB sticker.
The Waypoints and Route
The map will recommend the roads with the best view of Oneida Lake, but feel free to choose your own routes, stops, and adventures along the way. Convoy with fellow Jeepers or go solo. This event will not be a formal convoy, but an informal adventure to get out and enjoy the day in your Jeep! There is no timeline, deadline, or required stop. Please drive safely and follow all traffic laws. Drinking and driving is strictly prohibited! You are solely responsible for your actions behind the wheel. Please be considerate of other drivers, and help continue to give JATB the positive namesake it has earned within the community, as well as the Upstate Foundation, where all of the proceeds from this event will be donated again.
Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at several waypoints along the route, including Registration at Smitty’s. Raffles will be drawn on Facebook Live (times and items will be updated on Facebook). Winners will be contacted and can choose to pick up their item in person or have it mailed (winner pays shipping if you choose this option). Raffle tickets will be priced at $1 each or 12 tickets for $10.
COVID-19 Restrictions and Social Distancing Guidelines
Jeeps at the Beach cannot be held in its traditional format as a Jeep show at Sylvan Beach this year because of state and local restrictions and closures. We believe in this show, especially because of the impact we make on the community with our donations to the Upstate Foundation. We have reimagined how Jeeps at the Beach will work this year to respect social distancing guidelines and state and local restrictions.
Please respect the safety and distance of others while participating in the Interactive Drive. Bring a mask/face covering and please use it if you cannot socially distance (6+ feet) from others not in your party, or if you need to go indoors to get food, fuel, etc. We also recommend bringing hand sanitizer.
Our goal is to run a safe and fun event this year, and it’s important that participants make an effort to respect guidelines so that we can continue to be a positive event in the eyes of the community!
