TRIP REPORTS:

Going to have to wait for another day to remove tree with chain saw. Jesse broke a front end trying to pull log off trail. Dave and Jesse turned around and headed home. Jeremy asked if anyone is available Sunday, January 10, to go to Freeway Ridge to cut trees? Information to be posted on our facebook page.

Jared and Dave went up the Narrows, east of Bull Head City, AZ.

Rob made a trip back to the fire area. Area is really charred. Hard to believe how devastating fire can be. A lot of the trails we use were spared.

Travis reported a group went to Ranger station and pick up supplies to put up fence at Miller Staging area. Put up T-posts and strung wire. Miller Lockwood closed right now. Sherman Trail is also closed.

After a discussion with the members about charge for event, there was a motion by Dave Hess, Second by Jen Utt to charge $40.00 for registration. There was some concern about the raffle. Jeremy said he would do the best he can. It was also suggested we contact the Membership Chairman for the Central District about the possibility of setting up a membership booth to gain some new members for the Association. Jeremy will reach out to see if this is a possibility.
Rob, Jared, Travis, Tom volunteered to lead trail trips. Shirts were also discussed. It was decided that the shirts will be long sleeve and gray-heather color.

OCEANO DUNES:
The five year plan has been released. The recommendation for the 5 year Phase out Plan is to remove OHV from ODSVRA . It is critical for everyone to call into these meetings and to rally everyone you know to speak up at the March 18 special meeting. There is link to speak up under Public Comments at the January 13-14 Coastal Commission Meetings. https://www.coastal.ca.gov/meetings/agenda/#/2021/1 VOICES DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!!!!
