Dickhead PBB'rs...35% on the way

35% payment is below? YES... A OHV National Park Designation for Johnson Valley? MAYBE...

...


...

Wait a second, there is no OHV National Parks in this world!!!

Actually, there may very well be if we get a lucky break in the next couple of weeks!

Many of us already know that Jeff Knoll went before congress recently to pitch the Bartlett Amendment to save Johnson Valley. During that process, things went a bit farther than most of us ever dreamed they could. The Bartlett Amendment got things moving along and the bill by Representative Paul Cook was the real deal. It was not only added to a major appropriations bill (which is great), but it also includes language that will turn Johnson Valley into an OHV National Park...a tract of land designated as an OHV Open area with a designation that can only be altered by an act of congress.

This whole thing goes to vote in the next couple of weeks but if you have not recognized it already, our government runs on favors and lobbyists. OHV is not able to call in any favors of the Federal Government at this point so we need the backing of a few lobbyists. That costs money.

We need to step up and donate money RIGHT NOW!

"Save The Hammers" has been raising money for a long time now and those dollars have been carefully and wisely spent getting us this far...we are now on the brink of success! However, there is not enough money left in the fund so we need an emergency infusion of cash.

PLEASE, we've only got a couple of weeks but the lobbyists need time to actually lobby on our behalf, so that means we've got just a week to raise the bulk of what is needed. Falken Tire generously offered a donation match, dollar-for-dollar, up to $5,000 for the money raised in the next week...that is AWESOME and appreciated!

However, I've seen the PBB step up and in less than 24 hours raise over $20,000 for a family in need. This is our lifestyle in need here...so much rides on this...we need to go over-the-top and beyond what we've done before!

ORBA and Save The Hammers is trying to raise over $30k...WE CAN DO THAT...

WHY SHOULD WE??? Because if we get one OHV area with federal designation, then that will lead to other opportunities as there is precedence. If you want to protect lands for OHV use, then this is one of the biggest steps we've taken in decades, if not forever.

Pirates, LETS DO THIS!

Make your donations at:

Save the Hammers

or go direct ot Paypal, log into your account, and send funds to: dburgess@orba.biz

The donations are going to CMRC which is the "group" of associations that are working together to spearhead this effort. An ORBA account is being used but again, this is a CMRC thing, not an ORBA thing...the accounting is being done by ORBA and that makes all donations tax-deductible.


Go ahead and add in "Save The Hammers / CMRC donation" in the field where you can enter notes and that way you'll have a note for yourself later if you're writing off donations on your taxes.


And please, dig a bit deeper than normal for this...we do not want to say we came up underfunded on such a major opportunity!


Oh, and my first installment of new 35% can be found in the "PAYMENT" thread in Gen ChitChat that I have re-vamped with some new photos from the Moni series. I don't want to screw up this thread...please, make this happen people! KEEP IT UP TOP!!!!

And yes, the title of this thread was written to make you look. Don't complain...I know the difference between the views of a boring thread title that no one pays attention to, and the title that makes people want to click on it so they can view a train-wreck. Such is life, you're here, let's make a difference for Johnson Valley and going forward for other OHV areas!

We have a shot at it and if accepted, it would take an act of Congress to change it's designation. Hard to believe, but the Barlett Amendment got the ball rolling and the bill by Paul Cook took it to the next level! If we support it all by taking the road most all high-profile bills do, with professional lobbyists, we may actually see it succeed!

I was on AOL (go figure) and it only loaded about 1/3 of the page, switched to Internet explorer and it was a completely different page with a big PayPal link on the left.

The name NEEDS to be changed.

Why?

Name me ONE "national park" that allows off highway recreation. National Park designation would not stop the military from training on it, but would stop the public from driving on it. EXACTLY what the Marines have been after. In fact, by getting it designated a national park the approval process for the Marines to LEASE the land out (I think) became a hell of a lot easier.

For how long now has the battle raged on with them while they threw every dirty underhanded trick in the book out there to try and take the land from us?

Ok... figured it out... done.
You should change the title of the thread.
It's not good.
I doubt that it will generate the kind of response we need.
