Grand Slam South East 2009
July 31-Aug 2 ~ Kentucky

Article written by Grand Slam South East ~ Submission

Date Added: 05/31/2009

Grand Slam Southeast began in 2003 as a wheeling event to bring together Grand Cherokee owners in the Southeastern US.

Always held the first weekend in August, the event was located at Tellico, NC for its first five years of existence. In 2008, GSSE relocated to Black Mountain ORV Park just outside of Harlan, Kentucky, due to the area?s extensive trail selection and natural beauty. The event welcomes vehicles besides Grands, but we still try to draw as many ZJ and WJ owners as possible. GSSE gives drivers of many levels a chance to test their rigs, and share stories around the campfire at day?s end. GSSE 2009 will be based out of the South Evarts Campground in Evarts, Kentucky from Friday, July 31st to Sunday, August 2nd.
