Major changes to club dues collection process

One of the bylaw changes that passed during this year’s Convention involved a change in the way that we collect dues from the clubs. Since the association’s inception, clubs have paid the association directly for each of their members. Beginning each April, the office staff printed rosters, billings and forms and mailed them to each club. Then the clubs were expected to collect the dues from their members and ensure that the forms and payments were received by the office no later than June so that the club could remain in good standing for the year. All club members expired on June 30, and new club members who joined during the year were required to have their dues prorated so that they would also expire on June 30.

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.

Trekking in the Sierras

The 2016 Sierra Trek: Come for the trail, stay for the party!

Back in 1964, a small group of Jeepers got the idea of creating a fundraising event for the newly formed California Association of 4WD Clubs (CA4WDC). It would need to be a first-rate event similar to the then-famous Jeepers Jamboree on the Rubicon. Sacramento Jeepers member Ed Dunkley, an encyclopedia of knowledge on Sierra Nevada history and old mining routes, gathered a few folks and began searching for a suitable trail. The chosen route was a long-abandoned wagon road from Cisco Grove, California (near Truckee), to the shores of Meadow Lake and the 1860’s mining camp of Summit City. It had been decades since the “road” had been used, and Mother Nature had played her hand at reclaiming the land.
