Let me start off by saying thank you for entrusting me and the rest of the Board of Directors with the wheel of this great club. In the year 2008 Sue and I joined the club sponsored by Steve and Jayne Riley to hike and jeep. The H4W's have a philosophy of listen, learn and serve, and now I am the President.
We have a big job this year in helping the BLM complete the Cactus Plain and Alamo Travel Management Plans. The Havasu TMP is now complete and we have a Voluntary Agreement to monitor, maintain and educate to help keep our trails open. We can’t say enough how much work has been done by our PLA committee and all the others in a monumental effort.
Our core objectives on our home page website will help guide us this year. If you have not read them lately they are: Providing for social, educational and recreational activities of its membership. Participating in supporting civic activities for betterment of the community. Enjoying and protecting the natural resources. Supporting and promoting the multiple uses principle as applied to Public Land. I am assuring you we will continue as a club to be good stewards of the land we are blessed with.
I want to thank in advance all the committee persons who have agreed to take on new positions, or continue on with the position they held last year. To all the trail-bosses, past, present and future a heartfelt thanks, since runs are what this club is all about. Past Presidents, I am seeking your wisdom so thank you in advance for all your time and guidance.
Finally to our members, thank you for all your support. I am happy to be your President and hope that by this time next year you will look back fondly at my tenure.
Happy trails to you, John
