While all those make good points, as long as this forum is up and running, everyone in the PNW needs to make use of it. There are usually 45-80+ people on here lurking and looking at us. Without current information available here, those potiential members will look elsewhere, getting the idea that not much is happening either with advocating the recreation form or in what can be done in a timely matter to keep what we have open or trying to get some back.

As I stated at the end of the Delegates meeting this past Saturday ALL the BOD and members need to make use of every avenue we have available to get current, up to date informaition out.

On a side note, we are down to 85 clubs, and only 33 Delegates even bothered to show up.....and my club happened to be 2 of them.

When I first joined the PNW, it was in the heyday of 4 wheeling and we had 312 clubs, and it was nothing to have over 150 Delegates at one of the three Delegate's Meetings and 250-300 at Winter Convention.

Some of the decline can be attributed to folks aging out, other interests, or other forms of OHV recreation, loss of areas, but all in all, how the mighty have fallen.

it's sad it really is. and all the younger crew that are coming up have not been taught how to do their own research (On Forums) instead they just pop on Facebook and ask can I put 35's on with out a lift.... I didn't understand that concept of doing my own research either back in 2004 when I first started wheeling. When I own club forums crashed we lost sooooo much information it made me sad that no one wanted to bother to fix it or even care that it wasn't there anymore. sniff sniff
