quotes from the Oregon Rally Group email list
The Oregon Dept. of Forestry has put our feet to the fire.
If we want to continue to build on the reputation that Oregon Trail is gaining, then our rally community must step forward over the next three weeks to man two road maintenance crews.
By demonstrating our will to be responsible for visible impacts on the forest roads, we can continue to work to alieve future demands from ODF about our impacts.
I have scheduled a pass over the Sterling Ranch Road to Lost Lake stage for this Saturday.
Saturday, April 28
> Meet at the Sunset Rest Area on Hwy 26 [milepost 29] by 9am sharp.
> We immediately proceed to Sterling Ranch Road [milepost 28].
> We start working our way up the stage toward Lost Lake.
> If you show up a little late, immediately head up the road to meet up with us.

Without money, our organization will cease to exist. plain and simple.
In a nutshell... we're looking at almost $20,000 worth of road repair
costs!!! we'd budgeted something in the neighborhood of $3-5000.
We are trying to work with ODF (Oregon Dept. of Forestry) to get these costs more aligned with reality, but that is a longer term situation.
Short term, we don't have $20,000 to pay ODF for road repairs, if we get up there and do a bunch of the work ourselves, then we hopefully won't get slammed with such a large amount.
The money we have spend for road repair is the SAME money that we use to put on RallyCrosses, ClubRallies and Gimick TSD rallies.
if we can help... we should... saturday???
i know it's Tillamook... hell i KNOW.. but.. no more events??? come on....
