May Skyliners Report

Submitted by JoeRoss on Fri, 05/17/2002 - 13:40

Hi Everyone!
Wow! Was that Convention fun for all or what? Thank you to all who attended. All the costumes were great and the race track was a hoot. I just want to say that the cooks, Fred and Sherry Hanson, did a wonderful job.
Congratulations to the costume winners:
Bob and Ann Lambert -Best couple
Leonard Nelson -Best male
Amy Johnson -Best female
Emily - Amy's Daughter -Best child
We need to mention one more costume that was good. We were told that it was not a skirt - it was a wrap! So, I think Tom Mandera should get the Burrito Award for the male that was all wrapped up!
R.C. races was won by Jason Schroeder, future son-in-law to Rob and Cindy St.Clair.
Frontier 4 Wheelers of Helena won the trail riding basket of goodies for the best picture poster contest.
Rob Zolman did a wonderful job on the photo booth. Everyone seemed to be pleased with their pictures, and I have to say, you all looked great!
The Skyliners would like to say congratulations to the state officers. You did such a good job last year and it's nice to have you here again.
Enough of Convention now. Life here is back to usual. Trail rides, some 4X4 fun, and the civic duty of highway clean up. May 18th is a run to Blacktail with a dog luck (short for hot dog pot luck). May 19th we're showing a friend of Jan's some Montana hospitality. She's from California. It's a pot luck and sure to be fun.
We had our election of officers - the same as last year.
Pres. Jan Munn
V.P. Frank Brown
Treas. Don Munn
Sec. Mickie Ross
R.V.P. Mickie Ross
Delegates Joe Ross & Preston Johnson
Alternates Jan Munn & Rob St.Clair
The Hot Springs Mud Bog looks like it's going to be fun. Some of the Skyliners are going over to show support.
We're back to trying new ways to build up our membership again with hopes of recruiting a couple more for this year.
We welcome Fred and Sherry Hanson, and Rob and Krystal Zolman, (parents to Trenton & T.J. Zolman - Mickie & Joe Ross' grand sons that most of you have already known since they were babies.) Glad to have you all in the club!
So long for now. -Mickie Ross, R.V.P.

We'll be having our monthly trail ride on Saturday, April 13th.

Make sure your rig has anchor points and you're prepared for whatever weather we get.

Let's say it's 6:15 p.m. and you're driving home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You're really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to radiate out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home; unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far.

What can you do?

_TPConvention Registration Correction

Submitted by JoeRoss on Tue, 03/05/2002 - 10:26

_TP There is a typographical error in the Forum. The cost is $16.00 per person, not per couple as shown on the registration coupon.

The Skyliner address on the Convention registration form and in the directory
is wrong. If you send in your registration, you'll probably get it back if
sent to box 292.

Eldorado National Forest (Rubicon, Rock Creek, and many other trails) lawsuit.

Submitted by Forplay4x4 on Thu, 02/21/2002 - 09:29

To All:
Here is the BlueRibbon Coalition press release on the Eldorado National Forest (Rubicon, Rock Creek, and many other trails) lawsuit.
Friends of the Rubicon is in the game!  Many other groups will be part of this, but for now, both BRC and Cal4wheel (CA4WDC) have set up legal funds to handle donations to the fight.  I'm in this one for the duration. 

We need you to round up support as best you can.  Tell folks this is the way to help (contributing to the Legal Action Fund), even for folks who live where travel to the Rubicon is still a dream.  Let's keep that dream alive.

Let me know if you have any questions.  Remember that FOTR is merely an informal coalition of interested folks.  So we are not a write off (for money sent to Albright Enterprises for FOTR).  You're better off right now sending money to BRC Legal Action Fund (or the Cal4 fund if you're a member and want to contribute there).

I'm very optimistic that we're going to make history with this one.
Thanks for all your support and help,
Trail Boss, Friends of the Rubicon
BlueRibbon Coalition Ambassador
