Update from the President - October 6, 2023

I wanted to take a minute and update you on some awesome stuff.

Operation Desert Fun is a week away and pre-registration is closing October 8th – All pre-registered attendees will receive one special raffle ticket to a surprise raffle prize that you can only get if you register before it closes on the 8th! Go to and register today! You can still register on site but you’ll miss out on a great opportunity. Operation Desert Fun Raffle 100% supports the Paralyzed Veterans of America, San Diego Chapter. This year will be food and great times to be had by all! Don’t hesitate and consider this your personal invitation from me to attend!

If you didn’t know, Bonnie Fergueson and Jeff Godde had to make the painful decision to cancel this year’s Panamint Valley Days due to the insane amount of damage that Hurricane Hillary did to that area. Having to cancel an event before, I know the pain they both felt as they both love PVD and would do anything to make that happen. In lieu of PVD being cancelled, I was informed by the High Desert Four Wheelers of their challenge to every club, member and Associate member of the Association to match or beat their donation of $500 to Cal 4 Wheel to aid in the revenue lost due to the cancellation of PVD, or at the very least, donate in whatever capacity you can since every penny counts and loosing this event, really sucks. If you or your club is interested in donating in lieu of Panamint Valley Days being cancelled, please contact the office: 800-4X4-FUNN – every penny counts and having to cancel PVD is a hard hit to the Association.

The Central District Meeting is this Saturday 10/7 at the Broken Yolk Restaurant, 3300 Buena Vista Rd, Bakersfield, CA 93311. Please come join your CD Board Of Directors as we talk about the great success of High Sierra Poker run, the impending winter weather coming, eat, drink and enjoy a great Saturday morning with your fellow Cal4 members and me!  Meeting starts at 9am – I hope to see you all there helping us keep these public lands, public.

Well, I got a lot of work to do, till the next update….
