Lodestone Lake Rec Site maintenance contract ASSISTANCE NEEDED.

We are currently working on renewing our partnership agreement with Recreation Site Officer for this district.

To fulfill a contract like this effectively, we need to harness the support and assistance of the 4x4 community. There are many clubs and groups of people who make annual trips to the Whipsaw trail and I am hoping to recruit their help.

What do we need you ask? Well, I know that everyone who travels the trail packs out more than they pack in so what I would like is a report with some pictures of 'what was done' on those trips, particularly around Lodestone Lake where we have our rec agreement. Things like:

Before and after pictures of site,
•garbage removed
•brush clearing
•condition of tables
•condition of outhouse
•condition of rec site
•trail conditions
Send that information to president@4wdabc.ca and I will write the official reports to the Rec Officer for this district.

If you have ideas of what you would like to see, send that to me as well and I will include it in my annual 'what we would like to do' report.


Update on Partnership Agreements with the BC Parks and Recreation.

We are very pleased to announce that we currently have contracts in place with BC Parks and Recreation for the following locations:

•Hale
•Sunrise
•Francis
•Kenyon
•Wilson
•Nahatlatch
•Lodestone

Other locations are on our radar, as well as possible future projects, if they do develop full details will be forwarded to you



Revamp of Website

We are currently on the lookout for a tech savy individual to help give our website a facelift!

This can be done from the comfort of your own home, and on your own schedule!

If this appeals to you, please contact president@4wdabc.ca to discuss the options.

Backroader Deadline

The next issue of the Backroader will soon be underway, Maciej would like to set a deadline of March 31st for contributions. We look forward to receiving you sharing the beautiful photographs you've taken and the stories that went with those adventures!

Please send your contributions to backroader@4wdabc.



Call for Volunteers

In our case, we especially need passionate volunteers in a couple of areas.

The Mission Interpretive Forest initiative is one. Mission has intentions of making many things happen over the next 6 months in the West Stave area to further their goal of creating a multi use recreation area that is controlled.

This representative could expect to invest 10 hours per month doing things like attending meetings, interacting with other recreation interests, becoming familiar with the nuances of the area, attending BOD meetings with the Association, etc.

Another area we need help is for someone with the ability to sign up corporate sustaining members to assist with helping solidify funding for the Association. These memberships are only $250 a year and shouldn't be too difficult to sell given our track record and accomplishments.

Trail run leaders are always welcome to lead one of our monthly maintenance runs in West Harrison and East Stave.

See you on the trail, please contact president@4wdabc.ca for any additional information.
