For all of you who made it out to the 4Given 4x4 event in December you saw how fun a place KITM can be. It has been a struggle for the owners to keep it open and as you can see from their page they even had to shut down until after the court date.

Please help us keep this Land OPEN to wheel on, I know not all can make it, but if we can show that wheeling is a true and loved sport here in Michigan, let see just how many people can fit in the township hall! If you can't make it to the meeting, compose a letter, you can even email to me and I will fax it into the Township for you. I think after an event like the Toy 4 Tots event we had there in December we can all see that this is a place worth saving!
Email your letters to:
And I will see to it that your voice is heard!
