The following are the Land Use Committees, a means of delegating responsibility and workload, and keeping the focus on a particular set of 4x4 routes. I miss things too easily, these folks will keep me accountable! :hill:

By no means does this indicate that you can't be part of the action with these routes! If you would like to assist, contact me or the Trail Boss of the routes you are interested in.

Roosevelt NF
Boulder Ranger District
Jenny Creek/Rollins Pass Area
Trail Boss: Marco Capote (rover67)
Committee Members: Kevin Ehrlick (Uncle Ben), Terry Holben (Arthog), Robbie Antonson (Powderpig), Timm Buchanan (Timmbuck2), John Clary (80lolux4x4) - ed. 6/1/11

Arapaho NF
Clear Creek Ranger District
Argentine Pass/Waldorf/Leavenworth Creek Area
Trail Boss: Matt Miller (Subzali)
Committee Members: Perry Loughridge (bh4rnnr), Jeff Zettl (corsair23), Martin Huber (MDH33) - ed. 6/1/11

San Isabel NF
Salida Ranger District
Iron Chest, Pomeroy Lake, Mt. Antero
Trail Boss: Bill Morgan (Red_Chili)
Committee Members: Matt Farr (Hulk), Isaac Vimont (AxleIke), Dan Reinmuth (Convert), Steve Crase (Crash) - ed. 6/1/11


The Trail Boss is responsible for maintaining communications for the road in question, and for delegating work to committee members, and coordinating the volunteer efforts for the trail. Included is attendance for any USFS / (future: BLM) meetings related to the trail, as needed. It is his/her baby.

The Trail Boss is also expected to communicate timely information regarding the route for which he or she has taken responsibility. The Trail Boss should be the point person for this information, and will post information here in this forum.

Of course, if the USFS wants to send me stuff, I will forward the info on, and post it. I will coordinate the agreements with the USFS and BLM for Adopt-A-Road.

This structure should enable us to take on more adopt-a-road responsibilities without getting overwhelmed, or overwhelming the club. I can envision each committee simply scheduling their time as needed for an area, publicizing it to the club for others' interest, and doing the occasional fun, big-impact project. It will be like being three (or more!) clubs in one, in terms of impact.

Thanks all!

no nothing really. Last time we were out there we were with Maribeth, so she knows what we have been up to. If you can make it, ask them what they are budgeting to have done this year. I'm curious what their plans are.

Title says it all! None of us that usually go to the BRD meeting are able to this week! Someone (can be more than one) needs to step up and represent. I promise it will be interesting and possibly habit forming! If you can go please check in with Marco to get any updates he needs to share. Here is the agenda....

As planned we will have our normal monthly OHV meeting at 5:00pm at the Boulder Ranger District Office (2140 Yarmouth Ave, Boulder, CO 80301). See you there!



Next meeting August 10th?



Updates are highlighted in Green.



Planning:

Magnolia Non-Motorized Trails we kicked off the public implementation meeting last Friday. Of the 140 that RSVPd, 50 came. We had exercises for everyone to determine the priorities and needs when determining how to move forward with the project. We are sorting through the data and plan to have the results of the meeting out soon.

No new updates regarding Lefthand.

Lefthand Motorized Roads and Trails Project (what we all call Lefthand OHV has been entered into the SOPA (I have an inquiry out as to why its not showing up Ill let you know when I know whats going on): http://www.fs.fed.us/sopa/state-level.php?co. Our plan is to have a proposed action out to the public by summer.



Training:

No new updates but I know Jon is working on it.

Chainsaw Training No tangible updates, though I am working with our Fire program to get a class for employees and a few volunteers. I will prioritize my employees first, but we are looking at how to include a volunteer program. Right now its still pretty complicated, so allow me some time to work through this. It may not be viable for us to do in 2017.

they picked the one night probably this whole year that there is a mandatory work function I have to go to tonight.

is there a schedule posted anywhere where the various district meeting dates and times are posted ahead of time? Might be easier for people to put time into their schedules.

state association website has a great calendar, but to see everything you have to be a member
