1st Annual D36 LAO-Club Officer Retreat – April 27/28, 2019

posted in: D36 News | 0


Attention District 36 Clubs and Promoters LAO officers………

Our 1st annual D36 LAO camp out and trail ride will be held at the Ohl Olson Reserved Campground at the BLM’s Chappie Shasta OHV Area near Redding, CA on the weekend of April 27/28, 2019. 

The event’s team building/educational objective is to enhance communications and relationships between the District 36 LAO and club LAO officers (or club members who want to learn about the LAO position) and share our collective experiences in working with land agency leadership/staff on issues related to casual OHV use, event permitting, collaboration, OHV grants, post wildfire recovery, partnerships, and post subpart B project level travel planning.

Chris Real, President of DPS Technical, will be offering the SAE J1287 96dBA “20-inch” Sound Test Certification Class to D36 club LAO officers and/or club members who perform sound/spark arrester technical inspection at events.   This class will be taught on April 27.  Contact Chris Real directly to register for the class.  Email Chris at – Chris.Real@dpstechnical.com

The Ohl Olson Reserved Campground is located about 200 yards north and above the main Chappie Shasta OHV Staging Area.  It has a hardened gravel camping area, vault toilets, and picnic tables.  There is limited room for RVs and tents so RSVP early.  You must cross the Shasta Dam which is open from 6am to 10pm.  There are guards at the dam that will inspect your vehicles for current registration.

Meals will be on your own, but we are working on an event BBQ for Saturday night.  Stay tuned.

For those of you who are not camping, there are many hotels close by in the Greater Redding Area.



D36 LAO is partnering with the Redding Dirt Riders who are providing event support.
