Ricky, If you got more time bring the bike and ride with us. I had fun riding Georgetown with you last year, let's do it again if you can.
Paul & Monty, looks like no riding for you guys if your bring wife's. I guess that's better for the meeting but will miss you guys for the ride.

Dear: Dave Widel and OHV Commissioners
Please present these comments to the OHV Commissioners at the OHV Grants
hearings on 2/12 and 2/13.
Our organization , Merced Dirt Riders Inc. ( MDR ) Request that you
consider our comments on OHV Grant requests from the Federal Agencies,
Forest Service ( FS ) and Bureau of Land Management ( BLM ). The MDR
supports all of the Grant Requests at full funding for the FS and BLM
Operation & Maintenance ( O&M ) Grants.
In reviewing several grant applications we see a marked increase in the
amount of money requested for Law Enforcement! This fact is very
disturbing to the MDR as the OHV Fund was to, Develop New Riding Areas
and to maintain existing Riding Areas! The MDR wants OUR money going to
where it will do the most, that is in trail maintenance and trail
construction. Trail maintenance to reduce potential damage to OUR public
lands. Trail Construction to disperse the use where there will be less
potential for any damage to occur from over use.
By the agenda it looks like you are purposing significant cuts to
requested amounts the MDR will not support any cuts to the O&M parts of
the grants, if any cutting needs to be done it needs to taken from the
Law Enforcement sections only!
The MDR specifically supports Stanislaus FS, El Dorado FS and Hollister
BLM ( Clear Creek ) grant requests! Please fund these Agencies as per
comments included in this document.
