New Cal4Wheel decals now available

We want everyone to have the new California Four Wheel Drive Association decals on their rigs, so we are offering the new 3" decals for only 50 cents, while the 5" ones are a budget-breaking $1.

Order yours online here: ca4wdc-store/california-four-wheel-drive-association-decals

And don't worry, if you are feeling sentimental and want the old decals they are still in the store at their regular price. We will keep them until we run out.

Please note: Our bylaws require that you must be a current Cal4Wheel member in order to purchase and display any of our official decals.

Santa Cruz club raises $2K at Last One Standing event

santa cruz last one standing logoOn a slightly cloudy and almost rain-free Saturday in December of 2014, a group of 21 contestants, a dozen club members and approximately 70 additional spectators gathered together at Hollister Hills SVRA (State Vehicle Recreation Area) for the 6th annual "Last One Standing" event hosted by Santa Cruz 4 Wheel Drive Club. The "LOS" is a competition-style event that pits drivers of modified and stock 4x4 vehicles against each other and the clock to achieve the lowest time in several challenging off-road courses. The event is open to club members and guests and has been one of the favored "runs" of the club's monthly activities for the past five years. The club charges an entry fee to all participants and also sells tickets for a raffle which is held at the end of the day.

Last year the LOS resulted in a generous $1,700 donation to the Cal4Wheel Legal Fund, a national recreation advocacy group. This year we raised $2,000 in raffle ticket and t-shirt sales. This exceeded our goal of raising $1,500 and was a fantastic result!! This money was donated during the Cal4Wheel Convention to the Legal Fund for keeping our public lands open!!

Corporate donations can make a difference

As avid off-roaders, we are always concerned about how to effectively fight for “OUR” public lands. Many of us donate hundreds of hours and dollars to these efforts to different organizations. Some of us even join in the fight by becoming board members on different boards to help give direction to these organizations.

We are always looking for the corporate dollars to help in these fights, and most of these corporate dollars are hard to find. Many of our members work for corporate giants though, and I am one of those that am lucky enough to work for a billion dollar company — Chevron Corporation to be exact. With that, Chevron has a program called Human Kind that gives the employees the ability to donate time to an organization and Chevron will give grants of $500 per 20 hours donated. To date, I have donated over 120 hours and Chevron has given over $3,000 to BlueRibbon Coalition for my donated hours. The Cal4Wheel Conservation and Education Foundation has received over $1,500 in grants and matching pay check donations. You may say that Chevron is a billion dollar company, and they should do this. They do it because they know that their employees enjoy helping non-profits or 501(c)3’s perform their work.
