    Nor-Cal Big Dawgs By-Laws


    This organization exists in order to bring together members for fun, family-oriented activities and enjoyment of our
    natural surroundings. This organization shall work to keep existing trails open and create new trails. Safety and
    user education will be emphasized. This club will work in concert with other user groups to maintain trails, keep
    open trails open, and organize events and any other purpose that the membership feels is necessary. This
    organization shall be non-profit in character.
    The objective of the club is enjoyment, not competition. Practices involving "daring" or "egging on" are not
    acceptable. Members must be left to choose for themselves what obstacles they prefer to try or go around.
    The philosophy of Tread Lightly must be adhered to as strictly as possible. This means that vehicles should stick
    to the trail whenever possible and respect the environment.
    If someone gets stuck, all vehicles must wait until the vehicle is freed. People are not required to help extract a
    stuck vehicle or perform other work on the trail but the sport does require a team effort. Vehicles may be left in
    the stuck position provided there is a consensus amongst the participants. People will never be left behind.
    Drivers clean up after themselves, if possible leave it cleaner then you found it.
    You are responsible for the behavior of guests traveling in your vehicles.
    Recommended equipment includes: ABC fire extinguisher, first aid kit, tow straps, tools, spare tire, axe, shovel,
    and CB Radio. Although these items are not "required" it is highly recommended that all club members carry these
    items. Spare parts such as u-joints, axles, drivelines, and basic tune up parts are suggested as well.
    Each rig should have tow points in both the front and the rear of the vehicle.
    Each member should have a thorough understanding of their vehicle, as well as, being capable and prepared to
    repair said vehicle in the event that it is needed.
    This is a family based organization and all members will act accordingly. Any member or guest acting in a manner
    deemed unfitting will be asked to leave. If said situation occurs again, the member in question may have their club
    membership permanently revoked at the determination of the club's Board of Directors.

    As an organization that supports Tread Lightly, should one of our members be found to violate Tread Lightly
    practices, the situation shall be evaluated, and a fine of up to fifty ($50.00) dollars will be imposed.
    The fine will then be sent to the Tread Lightly organization in the form of a donation. A repeat violation of Tread
    Lightly policies shall constitute in having membership permanently revoked.

    MEMBERSHIP AND DUES

    1. Membership is open to owners of off-highway vehicles or OHV enthusiasts.

    you should not attempt that obstacle.

    I just wonder about one thing... why not have people pay dues a year after they first paid them? I just paid to join this month for a year... so if I pay again in Jan I will have paid only 6 months later.... wouldn't it make more sense to have each person pay on their yearly anniversary then everyone at once?

    Well... it won't be that much work... just on one page of the site have the members names listed... then next to it their join date. I don't wanna cause extra work, but just seems to make more sense to pay when your year is up, not again in 6 months. Cuz people like me who paid this month will be paying $20, $10 now, $10 then... plus lots of us are joining CA4WDAC... it adds up for some folks a bit higher then maybe they can afford. That's just my main concern here with this set up. Otherwise it looks good!

    Dan if this is a big deal then maybe prorate the first renewal. Either half or full depending when you joined. After your 1st year as a member you'd be renewing at the normal time.

    Looks good Dan-O!

    The only thing I would suggest from a "continuity" standpoint, is to move that final comment about being prepared for the obstacles you attempt, up into the early part of the bylaws where it talks about recommended equipment. It seems to be a logical extension of that initial subject....

    Other than that, we're looking GOOD. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif
