With all the destructive forest fires in northern California this year it seems most are hitting our prime OHV riding areas and this has affected our fall events.
However, we want to dispel any rumors about events being cancelled and ask that you wait for official notice. We currently have two meets that have cancelled due to the fires, both enduros:
The Jackhammer Enduro
The Bearfoot Family Enduro
While it may be that others events may cancel, it’s also possible that they may not. They could relocate or maybe run in their respective areas anyway depending on the severity of the fires and/or the Forest Service requirements/restrictions.
So please don’t speculate and start or spread rumors because this does nothing but hurt the attendance if an event isn’t cancelled.
We will do everything we can to get the word out on cancellations but not until we get official word from our clubs and promoters.
Stuff To Know……….

The House of Representatives, by a unanimous bi-partisan vote, passed HR 1913, a bill to re-open our beloved Clear Creek Management Area to OHV’s.
As you know the CCMA was “temporarily” closed in 2008 with the stroke of one pen. Now, nine years later and taking an act of congress to reverse that order, we are now a few steps away from getting a nationally known premiere riding area re-opened.
The next step is to the Senate and rumors are favorable. Then on to the President. Most of you know the Presidents sons ride motorcycles. KTM is their brand……
Hopefully this will help……………

See what’s inside:
The California OHV Program is a nationally recognized program that is in serious jeopardy with Senate Bill 249 looming. If enacted this Bill would gut the OHV funding and essentially kill the OHV program. So we need to TAKE ACTION NOW!
Currently the OHV Program is self-funded, taking no money out of the General Fund. The OHV Program receives it’s funding through a small percentage of gas tax, State Vehicle Recreation Areas (SVRAs) entrance fees and vehicle registrations (green and red stickers). SB 249, if enacted would direct all that money to the general fund and California’s only self-sustaining user funded program would fail to get the funding to continue.
There are lobby groups and several OHV Friendly organizations working to fight this bill but they NEED OUR HELP! We ALL NEED to contact our Senators and Assembly Representatives to voice our concerns and ask that they not pass this bill.
Two ways to act (do both!!):
Contact your Senator and Assemblyman directly by email or phone and ask them to please not support this bill that would devastate the OHV Program.
And use the AMA letter generator by going HERE
WE wouldn’t keep pestering you but this is one of the most devastating bills to ever be presented, a bill that would kill the only Self Funded program that has worked for years in California. Imagine Prairie City SVRA or Carnegie or even your favorite riding area in the national forest Closed due to lack of funds.
Please ACT NOW!
