Its OFFICIAL...The OHV Rally and Protest is on...with your help.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OHV Rally and Protest at the Placerville Fairgrounds
Sunday August 26th Noon to 7:00PM

I've done all the front end work with the police department, insurance companies, the fairgrounds and creating a protest plan. I survived the red-tape and now its up to you. This event is only $500.00 away from happening. I'm putting $100.00 in the pot. That leaves us $400.00 short. A few have posted they were good for $100.00 each. Its time to put you're money where your mouth is. Details of the event costs are listed below. I have no intention of making anything on this. I just want to cover the costs. When we get to the total needed I'll post 'FULLY FUNDED' and remove the below email/paypal address from this thread. If money does come in beyond our needs it will go to the Cantina for the con.

ohvprotestfunding@yahoo.com This is the address to send money to me via paypal.

Why protest...why give?Huh

The loss of 1200 + miles of roads and trail should be enough to motivate everyone in the OHV community. I think it is time for a public protest of the Eldorado National Forest Service. Not protesting would say we don't care and god only knows what would happen next. So...this is a call to action. Get up off the couch, build a protest sign and for just 1/2 a day Sunday August 26 between 12:00 and 7:00, go to the Placerville fairgrounds. We'll direct you from there. Its time to make an effort and fight for our rights. We're just asking for 3 hours of your time. The time is now!! SPREAD THE WORD!!

Event details:

This event will not be a band of red-necks running amuck in Placerville. If that's your plan stay home. It will be structured and organized and done within the laws and the "Protest plan" I submitted to the police department. The good news is we are approved to protest in very visable locations...overpasses etc. Individuals must come to the fairgrounds first, get instructions on where and how to properly protest, then they will get a hand stamp before they begin to protest. Everyone must have a stamp. Then they will be sent out in groups of 10 to 20 to work specific intersections/locations. A lead for each group will have "Base" communications to me via his/her and my cell phone. Make your own protest signs at home...details on this to follow on this thread for slogans etc.

Absolutely no drinking during this protest. Don't bring it to the fairgrounds either.

I ask each person to spend 2-3 hours protesting. We need 250 + people, but have room at the fairgrounds for much more. There are no entrance fees and parking is $4.00 per car at the fairgrounds. There will not be food or drinks available at the fairgrounds...maybe some bottled water depending on funding so prepare accordingly. We'll have a petition to sign and letters (For the DEIS) that people can submit to the FS.

Here are the details on costs:

Fairgrounds:
Back lawn $210.00
Insurance $125.00
Stage $ 70.00
PA sysetm $ 50.00
Taxes...Huh

Additional expenses:
Bottled water and Ice: 50.00 - 100.00 anyone willing to do this???
Signs/lumber/pens/poster board: We'll need some back up signs???
Flyers...a link is posted below with a flyer that can be downloaded. I'd like to print and hand them out in advance. Need help!!

I need volunteer help too. Call/email me.

Flyer link here. MS WORD doc: http://www.calcreepers.com/gallery2.php?g2_itemId=12203 This is very basic and could be better. Its a start.

To communicate with me:

Good work on this.  I was watching this on the Pirate board before posting anything here.

Thanks for doing it though.

I am the only one on the west coast.
I am supposed to pre-run Swamp lake that weekend for the event the following weekend. 

I do not like being unprepared for the trail, and have not had an opportunity to run the trail yet this year.
My trail runs have greatly decreased this year. 

Let me see if I can get someone else to run the trail and lead it for the event organizers so we can get some UFWDA representation here.

I will have a final answer on Sunday for you.
I will ask the guys that have run the trail all ready this year, to see what they say about it, and if they think I need to pre-run it?
See how much it has changed from last year.
I do think we need to be represented here, and show our support for the people on the street fighting for this.

As I mentioned in one of the previous postings here, I am supposed to pre-run Swamp Lake this weekend.
I was going to try and get one or two of my trail crew to do this for me.
Unfornatunatly, they are all busy, and I will be running Swamp this weekend.  I am taking some other friends through that have never been, and will most likely need a little help getting through the trail.

Sorry that I can not attend the Rally. 
I hope that all goes well there, and the message is sent that we (4X4 users) are a force to be reconed with.
