its not as easy for us to see the "other side" of glfwda.
as a former board member of glfwda please consider membership!
glfwda could sure use the help. there is power in numbers.

I am pretty new to wheeling and DMJC was my first exposure to a club. I have met some of the very best people through this organization, gained a lot of knowledge and more importantly learned responsible land use and safe wheeling. I believe having GLFWDA and UFDWA present was a way to help bolster membership in those organizations to help in the efforts and be additional voices to keep our trails open so that we can continue to use our land and enjoy these outdoor activities for generations to come.
It was great to have the folks from GLFWDA and UFDWA attend the monthly DMJC meeting to present information to our members that are both new and seasoned to wheeling. Our club is organized for the purpose of providing social, educational, and recreational activities for its members as well as participating in and supporting civic and environmental activities for the betterment of the community. We promote the sport and pastime of Jeep Vehicle travel in all phases plus enjoy and protect the natural resources and support the multiple use principle as it applies to public lands. DMJC is a family oriented club that promotes, organizes and holds outings, meetings, runs, excursions, reliability trials, hill climbs, cross-county trips and similar events to educate our members on responsible land use as well as safety on the trail, interest in and ownership of driving four wheel drive Jeep vehicles and the sport in general.
Paul, Ed and Jason gave a very professional and informative presentation to our club of new and seasoned members about the challenges that our sport is facing on a local, state and national level. We appreciated the time taken to educate our members on what is currently going on as well as what is on the horizon as it relates to our sport.
I believe this olive branch was well received and will help gain new, active members that will help in trail maintenance, attend meetings and support the initiatives that GLFWDA and UFDWA are taking up. This is however, an individual choice and decision for members of GL4x4, DMJC Et al. to support and spend their money on, and we should leave it as such.
Paul, Jason and Ed. These three are great representatives of their organizations and we appreciate their efforts.
