rubicon trail closure, important

Your attendance is requested on April 23rd in Sacramento!

On Thursday, April 23rd the California Water Quality Control Board is having a public hearing in Rancho Cordova to finalize their decision on closing the Rubicon Trail.

We are asking all NORA supporters within driving distance of Sacramento to attend this important public hearing. Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) enthusiasts need to show the Water Board the overwhelming public support to keep the Rubicon Trail open year-round. NORA’s goal is to have over (500) OHV enthusiasts present at this public hearing.

This is serious. On April 1st the United States Forest Service issued a 2-year temporary closure of the very popular Tellico OHV Area in North Carolina. Help Rubicon from turning into a Tellico type situation, by showing your support on April 23rd.

Assemblyman Ted Gaines and a representative from Congressman Tom McClintock’s office will be in attendance. Local Sacramento news media will also be covering this historic event.

Please call or email Erin Lara, Member Services Director at NORA to let her know if you are able to attend as we are trying to obtain a head count. She can be reached at (530) 333-1487, ext. 1 or info@nora-usa.com.

MEETING PLACE AND TIME:

LOCATION – 11020 Sun Center Drive # 200; Rancho Cordova, CA 95670
DATE & TIME – Thursday, April 23rd @ 12:30 PM

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD…. EMAIL, CALL AND TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW!!!!

I'm working and can't make it, but remember folks any "temporary closure" is like taxes, you'll never get it back.

Bump to the top.

I'll do my best to find someone to hitch a ride with. There's no way I can make it with the condition my transmission is in. Hopefully I can find someone to go...

i emailed lara and i got this reply:

Thank you for letting me know that you will me at the meeting on Thursday. This is a big issue for all of us, and as many people that we can get to be there to support the Rubicon Trail staying open year round is a big deal. We will be giving out RED Wristbands to those that support keeping the Rubicon Trail open. I have ordered 500, and hope that I run out! Please make sure that you find me (I'll be in a NORA shirt) so that I can personally thank you for attending and make sure you get a wristband.


See you Thursday!




Hope to see you on the trail!

Here's a link about the meeting from the Stockton Record.... http://www.recordnet.com/apps/pbcs.d...40321/-1/RSS02



At least they aren't saying an outright complete closure.



But I did find this to be insightful.....

......finding a way to pay the costs by charging fees or selling permits to trail users.
I guess they aren't so worried about all of their "concerns" if they can simply bilk us all for some money.
