Family memberships. We are a group of 4-wheel drive owners that have formed this club to promote safe, fun and responsible. [Bruce Cann - 4/1/13]
On behalf of the members and Officers of the Lost Coast 4x4's club, I would like to request that the proposed Arcata Field Office O&M – 2013 off-highway vehicle (OHV) grant be funded for the Samoa OHV park maintenance, and enforcement.
Our club consists of numerous family memberships. We are a group of 4-wheel drive owners that have formed this club to promote safe, fun and responsible outdoor recreation for the family. We promote the Tread Lightly program and educate our fellow four wheelers in proper off road skills and safety. We provide off road training with certified instructors, and the Samoa OHV area is our primary training area.
The OHV areas at the Samoa and Eureka dunes provide a much needed form of recreation in our area. Many of our club members utilize these areas on a regular basis. As this is one of the few areas left in which we can enjoy our sport, and has been in use for many years, it is extremely important to us to keep this area open for OHV use. It is for these reasons that we support the maintenance and growth of this area.
Thank you for your consideration in support of this grant. [Carl C. Brandt - 4/1/13]
