Submitted by tsm1 on Mon, 03/09/2009 - 10:51

Announcing the Mountaineers' "Gearhead" Swap Meet Sunday, 17 May, 2009 at the Gallatin County Fair Grounds in Bozeman. Gate for sellers opens at 8:00am and closes at 5:00pm. Gate to buyers will be open from 10:00 to 3:00. Profits will go to a dedicated land-use fund.

4x4, motorcycle, snowmobile, stock car, ATV, etc. users are invited to sell. Dealers and resellers are also welcome. Keep it gearhead oriented. A few related miscellaneous items are OK, but this not the place to sell all your leftover baby clothes.

Seller space is $10 for a 10x20 foot indoor spot to park your trailer load of loot.
We'll provide a pro-rated spot to buddy-up with others if you have only a few small items. Commercial seller space is $25 for 10'x20'. A really big trailer space is available for $50. Space will be available the day of the sale until all spaces are sold. First come, first served.

Space will be provided free to access-oriented organizations for outreach purposes. ie CBU, Blue Ribbon Coalition, etc.

Suggested items: vehicle parts, tools, tires & wheels, CBs, helmets & snowmobile suits, other riding gear, vehicles or pictures of vehicles for sale, etc.

You are responsible for your stuff, you and your buyers' safety, conducting yourself in a professional manner, cleaning up your area when done for the day, and removing your unsold items from the fairgrounds. No alcohol. We reserve the right to reject any sale items or eject participants for just cause.

By Adena Cook, BlueRibbon Coalition

Caught up in the attractions of the Internet, television and the cyber world, too many children have become isolated from nature.

We need to get kids outside! Recreation groups, land managers, youth organizations, health providers and educators are starting to get serious about this crisis: Kids spend far too little time outdoors enjoying physical activity. It's a cause we can all rally around, one with which we all agree. We need to put it first, before we put effort into who does what on which patch of ground.

Up coming Legislative Session - Help needed

Up coming Legislative Session - Help needed

I am monitoring the state legislative session again this session. So far there are 1201 bill draft requests. (as of 2 Dec 08) There will most likely be a few bills that will affect 4x4 users. So far I see 7 that will bear watching.

I want an e-mail network in place so I can alert you to bills that need to be responded to. I will provide you with all the info you need to either e-mail your local area legislators or provide a phone # so you can call the switch board and leave a message for them. Early in the session we usually have a few days to react. Late in the session we sometimes only have 12 hours, so paying attention and responding quickly is important.

This will only require that you look at your e-mail daily for a couple of months. If anything needs attention, you'll have a message from me with what to do. It will only take a few minutes of your time to help. And probably only 2 or 3 times during the session. If a bill looks ominous, I'll send you a link so you can read the bill for yourself.

Submitted by tsm1 on Thu, 11/06/2008 - 12:27

Frontier 4-Wheelers of Helena, MT will be having their annual Christmas Tree Run on Saturday, December 6th, 2008.

We will meet at Murdoch's at the corner of Montana and Custer Avenues at 9am, and make our way over MacDonald Pass on Hwy 12, then head south just before Elliston and head into the Kading Gulch area.

There is a plowed road most if not all of the way, easily accessible by a stock 4x4. There are also some trails available for those looking for a challenge.

Chili, Cornbread, and Fritos will be provided, so bring something else along to share.

RSVP or get to the back of the chili line and hope there's some left..
