Join us for an overlanding and historical charity run December 14th! The event changed from a Camp Sinawa ride due to the trails not being ready/frozen enough to ride on. We'll also now be meeting at United Ministries out of St. Nazianz to give our donations first, then ride.

We'll be collecting the following items for the local community:

Non-perishable food and clothing will be collected for United Ministries out of St. Nazianz. They're specifically requesting canned fruit among other non-perishables. They supply up to 4 local food banks in the area.

Kids Clothing & Jackets - United Ministries gives away clothing to local kids in need all Winter long. Please bring items that are washed and not worn out. 

More at - https://www.umwi.org/about 

This event has no cost.

Itinerary - 

Saturday morning 10am - Meet and greet, food and clothing donations given and a tour of United Ministries. We'll then overland to Pinecrest Historical Village with a possible lunch stop.

Saturday Post Lunch: Doug Richter will lead a Convoy from United Ministries to Pinecrest Historical Village Noon-3pm. We have secured a free group admission but will support the Manitowoc County Historical Society! Help decorate the tree with the Sorenson family and participate in their holiday traditions. Head on over to the Print Shop to learn the art of printing while making your own holiday cards! In the Two Creeks Town Hall, enjoy decorating Christmas cookies and sipping hot cider during breaks from dancing to live music. While the kids visit Santa in the decorated Visitor Center, adults can shop for unique gifts in the Museum Store. Pinecrest Village is the perfect place to enjoy the simple traditions of the holiday season! We have a free tour, but donations are appreciated once we get to the location. 924 Pinecrest Road, Manitowoc, Wisconsin 54220. https://www.manitowoccountyhistory.org/pinecrest-historical-village 

 

From 2-3pm until supper, we'll head on down the overlanding trail tour of the Kettles. Some roads are not maintained so we'll look for some snowy fun :) Group will decide on dinner after depending on how far we get.

General January meeting to discuss items in preparation for the annual meeting. As we solidify RL4WDA / RL4WD, we want to discuss what we've done, some things we've tried, give a chance for members to ask questions and get feedback. Listening sessions may include votes on where to concentrate efforts. 

Now that the ball is rolling and clubs and Trail Ambassadors are signing up, we want to discuss how this has worked so far and what the members want to in terms of how clubs become part of RL4WDA, what we offer, what is expected of a club, a member, etc. 

Possible Formal Bylaws Vote - Now that we have some programs in place and what appears to be our formal membership program, the Bylaws can be drafted, discussed and voted on if it is right to do so. 

Possible Formal Board Vote - changing the interim draft board to voted board. 

After the general listening session and member meeting, those who have volunteered to help on the board will then meet and narrow down what we'll be doing at the annual meeting and 2020 programs. 

If you want the history of what we've done up to this point, please read the page here - https://rl4wd.com/community/nonprofitinfo We'd like to finish our 501 (c)3 filings in 2020 and this is an important topic for the annual meeting. 

Ryan will also present his findings on going forward with legislative work and ways to do this as our group. We used 2019 to restructure as RL4WDA from Wrangler Riders and work on concepts of how the Universal Membership, Universal Trail Ratings, and related items are to work. We have enough data to talk about these items now and enough time tested to start making the decisions final based on a 2-year testing period. We have locations that need signage and it can't be done until we have everything in place.

Our annual meeting will be at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Convention Center in Stevens Point, WI. It will be part of the first-ever joint motorsports convention of Wisconsin where we as a motorized community can work together to build relationships, trails, and networking. 


The event details are still forming, but we'll have vendors in the main halls, the Wisconsin ATV/UTV Association doing their annual meeting, RL4WDA doing our meetings and then some joint workshops and social times. 


We try and provide not only our annual member's meeting & board/finance meetings but also the Trail Guide Ambassador meeting awards banquet and more. 


The idea is to host sessions where all of us can work together on action plans, meet one another, then break out into our respective sessions and meetings.   


Tim from WOHVA and Luana from WI4X4 were also receptive to this idea, but it's not likely they will bring their own meetings to the same place (we do have room for them though). Something like this hasn't been attempted from our side or WATVA before, and we may even see the Wisconsin Off-Highway Motorcycle Assoc. there as well. Here was the 2019 motorized panel we were on, this was the first stage of this concept. https://www.facebook.com/watva/videos/vl.312752236075690/412486859312381. We also had folks from the MN4x4 there, though it was in a different capacity. 


Being able to work together as the 4x4 recreation and as motorized recreation as a whole is something we're going to try at this meeting. 


The location has ample parking, things for the kids to do, local restaurants within walking distance and more. Special room rates will be announced soon, the ink was just signed on the booking yesterday by WATVA. Please mark your calendars for this event and join us in helping build more trails, more clubs, more ambassadors, and keep this growth going the right way. 


We always have folks from the DNR, DOT, Tourism and more, many do presentations in the breakout sessions over the weekend. 


More to come as it develops. If this is a success, we'll make this a yearly meeting for the upper midwest.

The RL4WD crew will be heading down to Daytona Beach, FL with the campers and jeeps on Tuesday, April 21st from Wisconsin and will be taking the 55mph backroads down and camping along the way. We'll then leave Daytona on Sunday and make a similar trip back. 

Those of us with campers will try and stay together in the infield of Daytona International Speedway. RSVP for your camping spot at: https://www.jeepbeach.com/hotels-camping/ 

RL4WDA will be set up in the Topsy Products booth and our rig will be in that booth as well! 

We plan to arrive at Daytona International Speedway on Thursday and we'll head back on Sunday. 

Please use this event to plan the trip. We'll be using AAA discount areas along the way to save money. 

While we'll be rolling at 55mph carrying our display, campers, rigs, etc. you'll need to have your rig in top mechanical working order. We won't have a lot of time to stop in the event of a breakdown. 

More to come!
