Please Note:  Club trips are designed for licensed vehicles and often enter and exit at different locations. Trailered unlicensed off road vehicles could therefore violate motor vehicle laws when returning to the start. Be sure to consider this if you intend to drive an unlicensed off road vehicle. Official Club Radios are GRMS channel 19 for travel to-from an event and 5 for during an event. NOTE, subject to change by event leader.

Club Meeting
Wednesday January 12th, 7:00pm to 9:00pm - Meeting, Moose Lodge #1548, 2200 Pratt Street, Longmont, CO 80501. Open to all members and guests.

The lodge is one street west of main, between 21st and 23rd on Pratt Street. We'll be in the north hall. Folks who arrive early will need to enter at the main entrance, take the 2nd left, off the lobby, enter the middle hall and continue north to the north hall. The front door is a key card door but there is a button for the bar tenders to open the door. Those that arrive early can prop the door open on east side of the north hall so folks can park on the east side of the building and enter through that door.

GMRS Radio Raffle II

Looks like Gordon got a GMRS radio from Santa, so he will be putting the radio donated by Don L back up for another raffle.
Contact Gordon H to get your name added to the list if you want to be in on the raffle. The drawing will be held January 12, 2021 at the club meeting.
Gordon is going to start with the previous list, so if you were in the last raffle you will be in this one too.
