President's Message - September 2016
Welcome back! I know some are still enjoying the cooler weather in other areas and of course it is still too early for most of the winter visitors, but hopefully the weather will start to cool down here and once again we can hit the trails to enjoy the natural beauty of the desert. We did get some rain this summer (depending on what part of the desert community you lived in) so we will have to see what Mother Nature has done to the trails. As we all know it is not always a bad thing. Sometimes the wash board has been smoothed out and holes have been filled in but on the other hand the rain can create new challenges. That is the interesting part of living in the desert.
As a jeep club the Trail Bosses are the heart of the club. They give of their time to enable the members to enjoy the scenery of the desert and build friendships. Without them we turn into a group of individuals enjoying the desert and eroding the meaning of a club. I would encourage anyone who has been a Trail Boss or thought about being a Trail Boss to step forward and lead a run. If you are thinking about leading your first run, feel free to contact an existing trail boss who would be more than willing to help you, or come to the Trail Boss Meeting in September to see what it is all about. Don’t think about the position as too many responsibilities but rather a chance to be out in the desert to enjoy the scenery with the great people in the club and NO DUST.
This month we celebrate Labor Day which was signed by President Cleveland on
June 28, 1894 and became a legal holiday to be celebrated on the first Monday of
September each year.
Don’t forget to check the activities calendar on the club web site. The September members meeting has been moved back a week to Sept. 29th due to unavailability of the hall.
See you on the trails,
