Superstition 10

It is with great pleasure to announce that San Diego 4 Wheelers will hold Superstition 10 on January 19th and 20th, 2008 near El Centro, Ca. We were in grave danger of not being able to hold our 10th annual event.
During the application process for our BLM permit, they (BLM) told us that we needed to submit archeological surveys of our trails. Mind you that we hold our event in Superstition Mt. OHVA, an area open 24/7 to anyone.
Fortunately during a frantic search for help I stumbled upon Rob Niemala of AMA District 38. They had just undergone the same scenario a few months before. I was able to get in touch with the Archeologist they used. He was able to provide me with a proposal for the required studies. Much to my dismay the price for the study was just under $23,000!
I had John Stewart helping me and at the September club meeting he presented our club with a check for $750 from California Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs(CA4WDC). Then he blind sided me. He also gave us a check for $6,000 from his own Tierra Del Sol (TDS) club.
My search for additional funding turned up an unusual and welcome source. I applied for a grant from Imperial County. On Tuesday, October 23, the Imperial County Board of Supervisors voted to fully fund our study! It appears that off roading is a major source of revenue for the County and we are actually appreciated by a government agency!
I wish to thank John Stewart, Rob Niemala, TDS, CA4WDC, and mostly the Imperial County Board of Supervisors. I invite all of you to attend Super10!

Please provide email contact information for these folks so that we can thank them in person -- politicians (especially!) need to hear from local supports, and also hear from the OHV folks that come from miles around to recreate responsibly in their districts.

We need to remember and appreciate them when we spend our dollars... Granola bars and Gatorade puts less in the County coffers than tow wagons, OHVs, and responsible users, and it never hurts to remind public officials that we pay taxes AND WE VOTE!

Glad to hear Imperial County understands the value of funding the study and supporting the San Diego 4 Wheelers.

Putting your event on my calendar.

Here is a link to the Imperial County Board of Supervisors. Please send them a note telling them how much you appreciate their support. I know I do! If you are able, please make an effort to attend Super 10. We need your support.

FYI
If I am correct the study only had to be done due to the "organized event".

Some people have said they heard Super was closed.

It's not I live here and it's OPEN.

Correct.

This applies to ANY public lands whether it is managed by BLM or Forest Service.

If you are going to conduct and "organized event", a permit is required.

And, special studies may be required before the permit is issued.

Superstition Mountains is open for individual use. Or, even "group" use as long as you do not advertise, charge a fee, or host commercial activities....

Very awesome news. Would love to make this event and see the Superstitions (again -- it's been 40 years since my first tour).

Congrats and keep up the GREAT work.

I hope to make it this year.
I was there earlier this year for the BFG Outstanding Trails presentation, and had a great trail ride with them.

Good work to all involved.

Thanks

Todd
