Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know this posted already but how the hell can I get your attention if not for some outlandish 'draw you in' subject line.

Like the title says, VOTE! You get one vote per IP address per day. So three computers, three votes a day. The contest is going to run another couple weeks so keep up the vote. What's your favorite fourwheeling destination, California or Colorado? There's $5000 up for grabs for the winner. For crying out loud............GO VOTE!

EDIT: and NO you aren't expected to have gone to ANY of these trails. This Clubs and Organizations are lobbying for your vote based not on their trail alone, but what they would do with the money to help improve the trail.
This is NOT a vote for the most bad arse trail in North America folks. It's a vote to help clubs and organization improve the trails they have and of course to generate some enthusiasm for the program.
If you're not going to vote because you've never been on the trail.........I'm afraid the list for over 90% of the wheelers / alleged wheelers on this board would be awfully dam short.
BFG is the most supportive major manufacturer when it come to organized fourwheeling. This an advertising program for them as well. They, like all manufacturers want ot get their name out there. What better way than to give clubs money to help improve their trail. Last year winner was D.I. So it IS money that is available for local venues that we all enjoy.

Now pick the dam link and go vote!

To be honest, I have to agree with the other guys. I don't think it's fair to judge a trail based on a few pics. I've run trails that look awesome and they are ho-hum and others that don't look like much that are a blast. I'd be pissed if I lived in Michigan and one of our trails got out voted by people across the country that have never run either trail just because they like a certain state over another.

Apples and oranges. For a presidential election, I read, listen to interviews and watch the debates. Therefore, I get to draw my own conclusions.

Voting on a trail? I can only see what is highlighted, which compares to a biased political commercial.

For the record, I didn't vote for the one on Drummond either. I had not run that trail, nor the one that was competing.

Nobody asked us last year - this is a first.

I see it as an opportunity to participate in the process and let BFG know we are paying attention. This is all a marketing program for them, and my fear is that is people don't respond they will assume we don't care enough to make ourselves heard. If those with a real desire to see one or the other win are rallying their supporters, I am assuming their daily votes for their favorite will make my 2-3 votes per week (I am a lazy slacker at heart, that's the best I can do) will add to the toal count but will not affect the outcome.

Or better yet - vote for a different one every day!

I didn't actually say we voted last year. Users weren't allowed to actually vote last year but D.I. WAS one of the winners.

Colorado is a FULL SUPPORTING UFWDA Organization. You do the math.

There is merit to letting BFG know we care. Regarding which trail wins, I don't have an opinion.
