RE: CAMP JEEP TREPASSES AND ABUSES OF SMALL MEXICAN COMMUNITY
We would like to share some bad news that took place a couple of months ago. We were contacted by the owners (COMISARIADO COMUNIDAD DE CALDERONES, GTO. Jefe de la Comunidad, Tesorero, Presidente de Consejo and some relatives of ours that reside in Calderones)
that the local government officials (Presidencia logo was displayed on online promotions) and CAMP JEEP/Action Team Jeep of DF organized a lucrative event on private land without permission by the landowners. This Land is privately owned.
1) This event charged over $3000 pesos per vehicle, from the videos and photos you can tell that there were about 40-50 rigs. None of this money went to help the community.
2) No permission was granted by the community allowing for vehicles to enter the property. Especially at this time when vegetation is delicate.
(There are marked trails using vegetible based paint for use by professionals only during events. This area off limits to the public.)
3) No invitation was sent out to the community so that they could sell food and attend the event.
We have helped organize and participated at events held in Calderones aka Planet GTOROCKS®, since 2002. Permits and a written contract were always made with the community. Professional USA sanctioned Rock Motorsports events that were held from 2006-2009 (UROC® Mexico and MXRRA®) put this place on the world map, just do a search on Planet GTOROCKS and you will see. Due to lack of support from current local officials, these world class events sadly ended. These events brought work and donations for the community.
We have begun a Philanthropy to help out the kids of Calderones, who we know personally. If anybody is interested in helping please contact us via pm or our website.
The offroad park is now closed until further notice. There will be a charge to enter the area similar to Santa Rosa.
We support the community of Calderones who are very angry and disappointed at what ocurred on Nov 14, 2010 with the CAMP JEEP EVENT.
The community has numerous problems and any kind of help is appreciated.
Here are some videos of the trespassers sneaking in early in the morning to avoid being stopped by anyone of the community:@ We are sure the participants had no idea they were trespassing. Still this is not cool and very wrong of the organizers.
