UFWDA Annual General Meeting and Texas Wheel-inDo not miss out on the fun, sign up today!!
United Four Wheel Drive Associations is hosting the Annual General Meeting this year in Dallas, Texas on May 19 and 20, 2009 and we hope that everyone plans to attend.
Now more than ever, we face challenges that threaten our sport on a daily basis. The AGM will allow us to put our thoughts together and develop strategies for moving forward in this tough political climate. Every day we hear of more and more closures and the only way to combat that is through a united voice. Please plan to attend and do your part to assist in the fight.
Following the AGM, United Four Wheel Drive Associations is hosting the Texas Wheel-in. This will be the Inaugural Texas Wheel-in at Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area in Gilmer, Texas. The park is amazing and offers something for everyone. Sign up today so that you do not miss out on all of the fun.
