Glenn Reynolds, Cal4Wheel North District VP

North District VP report for April 2020

It is April and with a continuation of the shelter in place order in effect through the end of April, and may be extended further, our April 18 scheduled North District meeting in Lower Lake has been canceled. The meeting will not be rescheduled. It is my feeling that the quarantine may extend beyond any date we may pick. The Cal4Wheel board meeting is scheduled for June 6 at the Cal4Wheel office. I hope many of you will attend that meeting.

The new year started out with a bang. Winter fun Festival was very successful, topping all expectations for fund raising, participants and raffle. Thank you to everyone who volunteered. Great job!

ISE (International Sportsman Exposition) was another very successful event. It also was very successful, topping the Win-A-Jeep ticket sales from the previous year and bringing in new memberships. Thank you to a great group of hard-working volunteers.

High Desert Four Wheelers clean up Rowher OHV Trail

As the majority of the Antelope Valley battled traffic and crowds while shopping for last minute Christmas gifts on Chaos Saturday, members and guests of the High Desert Four Wheelers were serving their community by cleaning the beloved Rowher OHV Trail near Bouquet Reservoir. Hundreds of discarded bottles, cans, trash, and broken vehicle parts were collected on the club’s Adopt-a-Trail, potentially revealing that the trail makes its users thirsty, and a bit forgetful to pack out what they packed in. An estimated 250 pounds of trash was collected by 16 volunteers over a 4-hour period.

Donations sought for members affected by wildfires

We have learned that several of our fellow association members and their families have been deeply affected by California’s recent wildfires, including some who escaped with nothing other than the clothes they were wearing.

Our passion is to help those in need, especially members of the Cal4Wheel family. We have established a new fund through our non-profit Cal4Wheel Foundation to collect cash donations that will be distributed directly to Cal4Wheel member families who have been affected by the fires. These donations are tax-deductible and will be given directly to the members based on need and funds available.
