FS Proposed Change - Special Use Permits Required for Club Trailrides

Submitted by tsm1 on Tue, 03/11/2003 - 18:36

The basic message is that your Club may be required to obtain a Special Use Authorization to make a run on USFS Roads, potentially demanding all of the requirements employed to mitigate and insure against environment impact, even if the event originates and is staged off the Forest.

*This would likely mean an end to responsible organized family trail-riding*

Comments are needed.

Frontier March Meeting Location Change

Submitted by tsm1 on Tue, 03/04/2003 - 12:49

Due to a scheduling conflict at Mountain West, we had to change our meeting location this month (and next).

The meeting will be Wed, March 5th, at the Helena High Library, and we'll try to get started at 6:30 since we have a guest from the Forest Service.

For those that didn't have the extreme priviledge of attending HHS, it's on Montana Avenue, across the street from the Smiths Grocery Store.

Attention Motorized Users

Property owners have signed a petition to stop all motorized use of the Bear Canyon area and the County Commissioners will decide this issue at a meeting to be held at City Hall on the corner of Rouse and Main, in the basement meeting room Tuesday, March 4th, 9:00am. It is critical that supporters for motorized use attend and voice objection to this action. Commissioner Murdock is the main proponent of this action and he may be contacted at the County Courthouse, 3rd floor or by calling 582-3000.

_TPHappy New Year M4X4A!

We had a large turnout for our annual Christmas Tree run on December 7th. Many thanks to Dennis LaTulip and Loretta Kelly for providing yummy chili and to everyone else who graciously shared their treats. Our Christmas party on December 13th was also a huge success. Thanks to the Burnside's for opening up their home for the party and to Dennis LaTulip for cooking the meat. Great food, conversation and laughter.
