Induction ceremony will be October 31 in Las Vegas

Do you know someone who belongs in the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame? April is nomination month for the Hall ofFame.

There are many well deserving people in off-road who should be in the Hall of Fame, yet until they are officially nominated, they cannot be considered for induction. The Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame accepts nominations in the following categories: Recreational (Four Wheeling, Motorcycle/ATV), Competition (Motorcycle/ATV, Off-Road Racing, Rally, Rock Sports, Sand Sports), Pioneer (Advocate, Industry, Journalism), Special Achievement (Individual, Organization).

The road to the Hall of Fame starts with the nomination process. Anyone can nominate someone for the Hall of Fame. Submitted nominations are forwarded to an independent committee made up of individuals from different areas of the of the off-road community. The committee meets in June to review and discuss the merits of each nominee. A maximum of five nominees are selected for Induction each year. Nominees who are not selected during their first year of consideration are eligible for two additional years on the same nomination.

2016 fee-free days on federal public lands announced

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), the Forest Service (USFS) and the National Park Service (NPS) have announced Fee-Free days for 2016. The fee-free program is in cooperation with federal land management agencies under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act.

Fees are an important part of managing public lands, as many recreation opportunities, including OHV recreation opportunities, may be lost absent an opportunity to pay for them outside of the federal budget’s appropriations process. However, the Fee-Free program is a way to thank the millions of public lands visitors and to encourage more people to experience the great outdoors.

Winners of the CalStar Winter Fun giveaway announced

Ron and Ethel Tuttle, from the Grass Valley 4 Wheelers, won the flight on CalStar during this year's Winter Fun Festival. This special raffle was for all how turned in their Winter Fun registrations early.

Special thanks to CalStar for making this generous donation.

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.
