The Hi-Landers 4WD Club wrote to say thanks for a grant from the C4WDA Conservation and Education Foundation. The funds were used to purchase meals at two chainsaw classes that they conducted in April.

I just returned from the Cal4Wheel Convention in Visalia.
I must say what a great job Amy Cave and her crew did with all the bad weather threats and the usual catastrophes!!! Thank God Mother Nature decided to have the rain cease Friday night.
Now Amy can have the car show and the vendors can set up in the parking lot. She was wondering where she was going to get all the umbrellas/EZ-ups to keep the rigs dry out in the rain.
The dinner was really good!! And it went really well. I believe they served over 200 for dinner with a choice of beef, chicken or fish. I didn't hear anyone say their dinner wasn't good. And I was able to sit with Bonnie Ferguson, South District Secretary, another of the hard working members of the association, along with John Stewart, Natural Resources Consultant,and Sherry Stortroen and her husband Ole.
Hi-Desert Roundup changed its location to the Slash X Café/RV site off the 247 just South of Barstow about 15 miles!! What a great spot for the event. We had such great participation and good words of the site we had obtained for the 44th Hi-Desert Roundup.
You are in close location to the Pumpkin Eater Trail and Achy Breaky and three or four more I can't recall right now!!
The weather (W) even co-operated and didn't blow us off our seats!! We did have a couple dust devils that threw Steve Gardner's two EZ-ups over some trees and the one Angela Cook and I were using for the raffle took off and landed on Keith Graham's company truck???
