Update From the President - October 26, 2023

Hello all!

I recently got back from the Central and North district meetings and its nice to see all the members coming to attend these meetings and get to talk to you about your concerns and idea on how we can improve this Association. One of my favorite things of being President of this awesome Association is hearing from all of you.

Operation Desert Fun was a great time! I want to thank Dannette Starksen and Christina Epstein for chairing this years event. It was an undertaking but overall ODF did very well raising money for the P.V.A. (Paralyzed Veterans of America) San Diego Chapter. Thank you to each and every one of you that donated prizes for the kids and adult raffles – I don’t have exact numbers just yet but the PVA did very well and I wanted to thank each and every one of you. For those of you that don’t know, all raffle proceeds are donated to the PVA. Thank you to everyone that went above and beyond to make this ODF one to remember!

In this email with my update, you’ll notice a huge discount for ARB for all Cal4Wheel Members that expires on October 31st. If you’re looking to buy anything that ARB offers, please use this discount before it expires and do some early Christmas shopping for yourself!

I mentioned that Panamint Valley Days was cancelled this year. I, along with a slew of others were heart broken and still wanted to do something since like myself, I had already scheduled the weekend off. I reached out to Ron Delaney and we (well, he did about all the work) came up with a great plan to go camping at Jawbone Canyon. The information for who, when, what and were will be in this email – Thank you very much to Ron Delaney and Jim Bramham for spearheading this plan and putting it all together. I very much look forward to telling lies around the campfire with a lot of you members in a few weeks!

Speaking of PVD – the Challenge is still on from the High Desert Four Wheelers! They have formally challenged the entire Association $500 donation for the cancellation of PVD and are asking to match, beat or just donate a few dollars in lieu of cancelling PVD this year. If you’re interested and able to donate, please contact the wonderful Office Staff.

I got a busy weekend/week in front of me – As I write this, I’m finishing my week at work and will be attending the South District Meeting on Saturday at the Bass Pro Shops in Rancho Cucamunga and after we’re done there, I’ll be heading to Vegas to attend the yearly NAMRC meeting and partake in SEMA – Keep safe out there and I look forward to seeing you on the trails and around the campfire

…..till the next update
