Fellow Southern Californians, Some of us think it is about time that we start our very own 4x4 Club! Since a lot of us already meet about once a month for trail rides, we want to take the next step and give ourselves an official club so that we can say we belong to an actual 4x4 Club! The possibilities are endless - club meetings, club sponsored runs, club stickers, club t-shirts, club vehicle plaques, Adopt-A-Trail programs with the Forest Service, charity events, monthly pizza/beer meetings, etc!! I think it would be a fun way to share our love of off roading and also give us an excuse to get together and also meet new people who wish to join the "Club"! I know that a lot of us full size guys have been snubbed by clubs that only accept certain types of vehicles, so this would provide us a place to feel welcome (and also let us really dominate the landscape when we show up for an event next to all the Heeps! ha,ha) Now, having said that, I think that this club will be open to all who just want to get together and have fun four wheeling - no snobby "exclusive" club here, we will welcome all who wish to join us! Anyways, I think the first order of business is getting the message out to all of us SoCal folks that would be interested in this! Then, we need to decide on an upcoming day for as many people as possible to meet for beer and pizza to come up with ideas - cause I know you guys have some! Also, I think that we need to stress that this club won't be for just "extreme" rigs or anything - this will be a club that involves all kinds of vehicles, from stock to wild. My Jeep club has what they call a monthly "Roundup" where all members show up for pizza and watch videos, share pictures, share trail stories, examine each other's rigs and play on the RTI ramp, as well as plan the next event! So, I would think that guys/gals who have mostly stock Blazers and such would feel welcome to come participate! Whew, got a bit long winded here, but let's see who is interested and when we can meet!! And if you know people on this Board who might not see this post, please contact them and let them know to look at it! And for those who are already thinking of a Club Name, let's keep in mind that we will have people from San Diego on up through LA who are interested, so try to incorporate Southern California into the name?? And also, this won't be a purely Blazer Club (will probably have Jimmys, trucks, and maybe even a couple of Furds - ha,ha - I am sure my brother will want to join! ) Anyways, let's hear what you think and agree on a date to meet!! PS - Don't forget about the upcoming runs - Jan 19-20 (Superstition Mountain), Feb 1-3 (MDA Off Road for Hope) and Mar 1-3 (TDS Safari)!! Maybe if we can act quick enough we could have something going for one of these runs?? That would be cool!!
