I just saw this on a local forum and decided to post it ehre as well to get it out to more people!
If not there, where? is a slogan that we hope will soon be heard in Olympia from hundreds of motorized off road users on March 25, 2005 if the Northwest Outdoor Coalition (NOC) a coalition of dedicated off road vehicle users of every type, has its way.
That is the date that was picked tonight for a Rally/Demonstration in Olympia by this dedicated core group representing motorized users of ATV, 4WD, Rally Car, Motorcycle, Sports Car,
Motocross, Enduro, Poker Run, Play Riders, Trail Riders, Off Road Racers, etc.
These people are fed up with what is happening in Olympia and want to draw attention to it in the mainstream press!
Some of the current things that are going on in Olympia _
Will virtually eliminate your right for you and your kids to operate your motorized off road vehicles on your own private property!
Require special riders licensing to operate your off road vehicle on public land.
Eliminate any chance of re-opening the only motorized sports park in Western WA (Thurston County ORV).
Steal $1.6 million of your NOVA funds to pay the thief so the thief can repay the victim (YOU).
And Much More!
It will take everyone that this email is addressed to and many more to bring this about. The go-no-go decision date is March 9, 2005.
Enough people will have to step up and promise to attend before March 9, 2005 or this event will not happen and the Legislature will know they can do as they damn well please and continue to trample the off road motorized users as an insignificant minority. You can bet they will know about this attempt in short order!
Volunteers are sorely needed to actively work the various committees RIGHT NOW! This event will require volunteers to step up and staff committees for signage, funding, sign-up, permits, group co-ordination, press release generation, designated spokespeople, etc. and DO IT NOW!
1) Just hit REPLY TO this email now (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell us you will ATTEND this Rally driving your vehicle with your motorized off road vehicle in the back or on the trailer behind, so we can create a list of attendees.
2) FORWARD this email to ALL of your motorized off road user FRIENDS!
3) Send an email to email@example.com to volunteer to help with one of these committees!
IF NOT NOW, WHEN?
Your Northwest Outdoor Coalition
