    As we head into the 2019 season, we need to see who wanted to help at events. Without the proper elders, events do not function properly. For 2019 we're looking at stepping back weekend rides to once every other month (if possible) which will allow more time for training and trail scouting work. Overall, I'm looking to dedicate half of my weekends in 2019 to RL4WD events and training which is about 2 weekends per month.

    Please respond below if you'd consider being an elder for the following about once a month to every other month. Ultimately, if we don't have people to help out, we don't do events. It's that simple.

    Trail Guides
    Registration & Check in
    Food / Snacks / Beverage
    Financial (pre-reg, paypal, deposits, on site memberships, P&L statements)
    Post Event Checkers (making sure people clean up after themselves)

    Right now we have events for:

    January Weekend Camp Ride - 11-12th / Beginners Class Sunday the 13th
    January 26th Day Ride - The Homestead?

    February
    Trail Guide Ambassador Training Weekend Feb 8th - 10th @ Sinawa (no dorm, that's rented)
    Tigerton Weekend Ride - 22nd - 24th

    March
    March 8th - 10th Weekend ride and trail building/cleanup before the thaw
    March 30th Beginners class on west side only (day ride)

    April
    April 5th 6th 7th Trail Guide ambassador training in the lodge (all day class) or weekend if the camp is open.
    Northern Scouting and mapping Trip TBD
    26th - 28th Wrangler Riders Group (Chad Balke team?) heading to Jeep The Mac

    May
    Then 25th vets ride. (memorial weekend) (pending) might change to a vets ride as the group pending camp rental is for a vets event.
    Maybe Tigerton Weekend Ride TBD or Homestead day ride?
    May 31st vip ride (friday) VIP ride for DNR / Law Makers to show how we set up Slow Speed Trails.

    June
    Saturday 1st - 2nd, VIP ride on Friday the 31st.
    CrawlerFest 28th - 30th Full Thursday and Friday needed as this has a vendor show. @ Sinawa setup thursday not wed.

    July
    Beginning of the month Scouting and mapping trip up north
    19th - 21st Tigerton Ride Weekend

    August
    10th - 18th - 2019 Jeep Badge of Honor - Windrock,TN
    August 30th-1st (Any Sat in August would work for this, if the lodge is not available, then we'll do this on the west side with pop-ups. Trail Guide ambassador training in the lodge (all day class)

    September
    15th - 2019 Kewaskum Car Show
    27th - 29th Tigerton Ride Weekend (Early Fall Colors Event but still campable)

    October
    Oct 11th - 12th Trail Building @Sinawa and prep for Fright Crawl (fall colors event)
    Fright Crawl weekend - 25th - 27th @ Sinawa or holloween party

    November
    Annual Meeting & Ride 1st - 3rd @ Sinawa
    Nov. 25th Holiday Parade @ Sheboygan

    December - 13th - 15th Charity Ride Weekend. Maybe we do something where we take kids for rides in the Jeeps and people bring food for local food banks or something along those lines. But this way we still have a weekend ride in December and the camp sells cabins and camping. Looks like united ministries is possible.

    Please post below if you are willing to be an elder and help at events above.

    • Sounds good! It would be awesome to have a team dedicated to the 1-3 trails and a vehicle that perfectly represents that trail use. I'd say insteadSounds good! It would be awesome to have a team dedicated to the 1-3 trails and a vehicle that perfectly represents that trail use. I'd say instead of Elder, you guys should become Trail Guide Ambassadors so you can take a few folks with ya on some public and private trails as you have time. Thanks much for wanting to help! Together, we'll figure out a good mix everyone is comfortable with.   More ...
