    So a couple weeks ago I asked what the by laws, rules thoughts of who we are should be. I took bits and pieces from the input I got from you guys and put this together.
    This will be posted on our soon to be completed web site so please take a minute to read and make comments and or changes to it as this is all our club.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    We the Nor-Cal Big Dawgs have formed a club to enjoy the opportunities that we have to
    Explore the outdoors in four-wheel drive vehicles and do what is in good sense to help to protect
    those rights and keep the trails open and in good shape for future generations of this sport.
    We are a special group of 4-wheel drive enthusiasts who enjoy responsible 4-wheeling.
    We hold club meetings, trail rides, and other special community service activities related
    to our 4-wheeling hobby. We encourage all 4-wheelers to join us in our fun.

    We believe in a safe and a fulfilling time on the trail and great believers in pack it in pack it out
    ideology and to leave our wheeling areas cleaner than we left it.

    We the Nor-Cal Big Dawgs welcome any and all people in our club regardless of what you do or don't have but ask that members take responsibility for the behavior of guests traveling in their vehicles.

    When wheeling we want to have a safe time and those that can't make it safe will be asked to leave the trail, we all want to go home safe to our loved ones.

    We respect the trails and areas that we wheel in and believe in treading lightly. Above all we want to be safe and have fun while respecting the trails and areas that we wheel at.

    We do just about anything and everything that can involve a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Among other things, we trail ride and camp, and adopt trails to maintain and have monthly meetings with programs relating to 4-wheeling. We are involved with organizations that are concerned with preserving public lands for multiple uses.

    We provide organized, structured, responsible four wheeling for members and promote and educate safe four wheeling techniques.

    We are all here to enjoy the outdoors, our vehicles and the company of other members. In such if someone gets stuck we generally will help out others, as this is what a club is for. People are not required to help or perform other work on the trail but the sport does require a team effort. Sometimes vehicles may have to be left provided there is a consensus amongst the participants. But be assured that people will never be left behind.

    With the accumulation of a large club gathering on trail chaos can be prevented by the simple instruction of a Trail Leader. A Trailer Leader will have the knowledge of the particular site/trail we are at and will take the time to ensure the safety of the group. The Trail Leader is the boss on the trail. Members must adhere to the instructions of the Trail Leader. If the behavior of a Trail Leader is inappropriate in the eyes of drivers, then a complaint should be made to the Board of Directors, who will deal with the issue.

    WELCOME TO THE DAWGS…

    I know that everyone has shyed away from this but it's my opinion that there should be some very basic "vehicle guide lines"

    1. tow hooks or connections points front and rear

    2. Reccomended saftey/recovery equipment (fire extinguisher, shovel, tow strap, first aid kit, etc.) again these could be reccomended not absolutly required. Something each club member should work towards.

    3. Each vehicle should be as self sufficient as possible (ie, tools, spares where applicable, spare tire - don't laugh some people acutaly don't carry one, basically so that people don't rely on something that someone else may or may not have).


    Hope I'm not out of line here....just trying to make for a better experience for everyone.

    I agree! We are all at different levels with our off roading experiance and to have a "recomended" list of gooidies to have is a good thing for ALL!!
    40 rigs and two fire extiguishers(sp?) is not a good ratio....
    I don't think/whant to use the word "Mandatory" either...

    Keep it coming, your not out of line just adding your point of view, and everyone should. there will be a what you should have to wheel page also. So I guess another post on what you should have when you go out to trails. from my personal experience in the past a fire extinguisher should be mandatory, but that just rmy thoughts.
    Thanks for the input.
