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 November 8th, 7:00pm to 9:00pm
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. In the lobby the rear left double door is the middle hall and continuing through the middle hall is 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.

Past Meeting Minutes
Past Board Meeting Minutes
  • Survey to collect feedback on concerns with being trip leader is done. Reviewed results for presentation at meeting. Main reason for not leading trips is members not knowing a lot of 4WD roads and wanting to learn more first. Second most reason given is members just want to enjoy the trip without the responsibility of leading.
  • Christmas Party plan update from Kathy H. Date will move to December 29th.
  • Some one day trips have low attendance. Multi day trips have more attendance. Wondering why. James H suggested leaders send out a second general club forum post about their trip a week before to remind people.
  • Feedback from Edward Jones on investment options.
  • Three emails from prospective members.
