We welcome four wheel drive enthusiasts who are interested in 4X4 outings, meeting people with like interests, and exploring Arizona. Our outings are challenging, historic, and just plain fun. A 4x4 vehicle and a CB radio are required for group membership. Alcohol is not tolerated on trail runs with this group.
We run trails from easy to moderate. If you are looking to tackle the toughest trails Arizona has to offer, a different group might better suit you.
All of our meetings are on the website or on the trail. If you are looking to socialize at a sports bar or restaurant, this is not the group for you.
Some of our trail runs have limited numbers. Once a trail run is full, a waiting list will be generated. Other trail runs are not limited in size and can range up to 20 or 25 vehicles. Our organizers generally do not let trail runs get any larger than that.
Due to the possible dangers we could encounter on the trail, this group requires a signed Liability Release Form that we keep on file. There is also a $20.00 yearly membership fee.
1) After you request membership, you will be a Pending Member and not able to sign up for trail runs yet.
2) If the group is not full, I will send you information on how to pay the $20.00 yearly membership fee through PayPal and where to send your signed Liability Release Form. If the group is full, I will let you know that I'm not currently accepting new members.
3) Once I receive your yearly membership fee and Liability Release Form, I will accept you as a member.
4) If I do not receive the yearly membership fee and Liability Release Form in a timely manner, I will reject your membership request to allow others the opportunity to join.
Wow, That's Complicated
No, not really. It's the same steps this group has always had, but in a slightly different order. I manage the membership this way because in the past I let people become members and waited for them to take the next step. They didn't pay, didn't sign the form, didn't participate on any trail runs, rarely visited the web site, and were just inactive members taking up spots in a limited-member group. They effectively blocked out others who wanted to join and participate in our trail runs.
To save us both some time, please DO NOT request membership to this group if you do not plan to pay the fee, sign the form, and be active on our outings. Inactive members will periodically be removed from the group to allow room for those who do want to join and be active. There is no refund of the yearly fee for anyone removed from the group.
Inactive Member Removal
Any member who has not visited the group's web page in a year will be removed from the member list. This should not be taken as a personal insult, but should be understood as an effort to keep the group free of inactive members. If you receive an e-mail that you have been removed and you want to continue with the group, please reply back to me and we'll go through an expedited membership process to have you get current with your dues and you can join the group again. I will give priority to past members who had good standing but fell out of the 4WD scene for a while. I understand that can happen to anyone and will welcome you back to the group. Thanks for your understanding.
