appeared for Checkers. Dan asked Dave and Ed to explain why Checkers did not conduct

suspended fine.

March 6, 2014
1. Meeting called to order by Jerry Grabow, President.
2. Attendance and minutes taken by Janine Kohls, Secretary.
3. Minutes of January 2, 2014 reviewed and approved as presented.
4. Katrina Symons, BLM Barstow Office Field Manager. Katrina attended the meeting to
discuss new boundary lines in Johnson Valley. Katrina also reported that the Marines will
sign/mark the boundaries, then the boundaries will be surveyed, adjustments may be made, if
necessary, and then the final boundaries will be published. Katrina provided maps generally
depicting the areas for open use, shared use, and exclusive military use (copy attached).
Marines will likely give 12-18 months notice prior to using the shared use area. Katrina also
noted that Johnson Valley OHV area is now a Congressionally designated OHV area and will
be managed day-to-day by the BLM.
5. Reports:
a. Referee, Jerry Rickmeyer for Dan Barnett.
(i) Checkers MC called to 3/13/2014 Competition Committee meeting concerning
sound testing.
(ii) Prairie Dogs MC called to 3/13/2014 Competition Committee meeting concerning
amount charged at GP for ?free? entries.
(iii) Competition Committee Meeting 2/13/2014:
(a) Moto Tally. The stewards discussed rider updates in Moto Tally.
(b) Flyers Reviewed. SoCal National Hare & Hound, Badgers Dual Euro, RUTS
Dual Euro.
b. Treasurer, Richie Wohlers. Total liabilities and equity $124,380.35. Balance in
ambulance fund is steadily declining; general fund is negative $16,000. Richie also noted
that post-event reports for Dirt Diggers 2014 GP and Prospectors 2013 GP are overdue.
At the April 3, Off-Road meeting Richie will present a proposal to balance the income
and outflow for the general fund and the ambulance fund.

c. Congress, Jim Geddes, Bill Howell, Art Foreman.
(i) Bill had no new information to report.
(ii) Jim has spoken with Dave Pickett from District 36 regarding the lack of AMA clubs
and events in District 35. At the 2014 AMA Congress Jim will push to have the
area of District 35 divided between District 36 and District 37.
(iii) Art Foreman again discussed his proposed changes to the AMA rules governing
mini cycles. The purpose is to provide guidance for manufacturers as they develop
high performance 4-stroke engines for mini cycles.
d. Board of Directors, Jim Geddes. Elections were held at the last board of directors
meeting. Jim was elected as Chairman, Paul Flanders as Secretary, and Jerry Bailey as
Treasurer. The May board of directors meeting may be held by conference call.
e. President, Jerry Grabow.
(i) Jerry discussed a safety situation that occurred at the Four Aces event involving an
ambulance crossing a live race course. The discussion turned to the importance of
visibility of road crossing signage and road crossing personnel. Jerry also reported
that effective immediately the ambulance company will add flags to its vehicles to
improve their visibility and will educate its employees concerning safely traveling
on or near a live race course.
(ii) CAMRC. Jerry reported that at the last CAMRC meeting there was discussion
about hiring a third party entity to prepare and submit SRPs. The purpose would be
to reduce the amount of time the BLM spends contacting clubs for missing or
incomplete information. The movie industry has been successfully using the Inland
Film Commission to handle SRPs for filming in Johnson Valley.
(iii) Vikings National Hare & Hound. The Vikings notified NHHA that they are
cancelling their event for 2014. In order to keep the National event on the race
schedule, NHHA clubs and District 37 are stepping up to make this race happen.
(iv) Ecologic. Ecologic is very quiet right now. There will be a conference call next
week to discuss the Imperial Sand Dunes.
f. Vice President, Skip Earwood. Skip reported that between the Jackrabbits event and the
Checkers event 1 transponder reader went missing from the District trailer. Skip asked
Lost Coyotes, DMC, Dirt Diggers and Four Aces to check their race supplies. If the
reader isn?t found, Skip will request the cost of a replacement reader be split between
those 4 clubs.

g. DLO, Donn Nay.
(i) BLM Meeting. On 3/6/14 Donn, Jerry Grabow and Skip Earwood met with Katrina
Symons at the BLM?s Barstow office. Various topics were covered including new
boundaries and what to expect going forward dealing with BLM.
(ii) Cuddeback. In February Donn met with a conservancy group in Cuddeback who
recently received mitigation land in the Fremont Peak Area. This group is
interested in exchanging designated single track trails for support and education on
their land in sensitive areas. Donn is asking for a volunteer familiar with the
Fremont Peak area to get involved to help establish designated routes of single
track.
(iii) Lobby Days. Donn reported that the ?talking points? for lobby days is almost
finished and it has a very positive message this year.
h. Rider Reps. Christopher Deans had no information to report. Mike Vinson has tickets
for the raffle bike. See Mike at Hilltoppers camp. Julie Lee noted that she is looking for
advertisers for the Off-Road newsletter. Scott Shaner asked clubs to turn in their sound
test cards. So far this year Scott has received sound test cards from 1 club.
i. Rule Book, Richie Wohlers. No new information to report.
j. Big 6, Jim Geddes. Due to the cost for Moto Tally and a scoring team, Jim Geddes made
a motion on behalf of the Big 6 to increase ?free? entry fees from $3 to $6 per entry,
retroactive to the first GP of 2014. [Post meeting update: while the off-road body voted
in favor of this motion, it was not a valid motion. Entry fees are part of the standing rules
and require 3 readings before a vote can take place.]
k. Newsletter, Darren Moen. No new information to report.
l. Website, Jeff Owen. Absent.
6. New Business.
a. Brian Nasif noted that the District trailer is being returned dirty and without gas/oil in the
generator. Brian is asking the clubs to take better care of the trailer.

desert points. Motion passed.
Meeting adjourned at 10:35 p.m.

No problem. They come as a .pdf so all I could think to do was copy/paste, hence the weird format. Open for suggestions.

It looks great, the only other thing would be you could also attach the pdf in case someone wants to save them.

They did cancel it yes. The District and other NHHA clubs didn't want to loose the race so they joined together to still put in on. I don't know any other details beyond that though. Jim Geddes mentioned this at the last GP meeting.

Yes, Rick Nuss is Referee and I think DMC is leading the effort for course layout. BLM is working with D37 on the course map and permit since most of the original Vikings course was inside the takeover area.
