I posted this in: Land Use: Every person who rides in Washington needs to read this and submit a comment!! , but have not gotten any input or replies. This holds true for all ares, SAWS is one of, if not our biggest advocate! Let's try it here. Help me donate more money!!!
In addition to writing letters...
Join: SAWS - Snowmobile Alliance of Western States
They are our biggest voice! They stand toe to toe to all who propose to take away our lands. They have the legal knowledge to take our letters. our comments, our concerns and present them in our best interest. To show all those who question us what good stewards of the land we actually are.
I challenge everyone who sleds in WA, who is a member and reads the WA Riding Area Forum and ALL of SnoWest to:
1. Send in a comment: http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/wenatchee/forest-plan/contact/index.shtml (Thank you to newtrout for the link)
2. Join SAWS: Snowmobile Alliance of Western States
These are 2 simple things to do. It will take just a few minutes of your time, yet it will make a huge difference. Our strength is in our numbers and in our continued stewardship of the National Forests where we and our families play.
I just donated $50 to SAWS. Donation Link I urge everyone to give a small donation...$5 or whatever you can spare. Its a small price to help save the lands we love.
My business will match any donations made to SAWS up to $100. That means I will match any combination of contributions up to $100..... 10 people donating $5 + 5 people donating $10, etc.
Send me the donation conformation link via PM or e-mail and I will add them up til they reach $100, then send in my additional contribution of $100.
Lets all join together to do what we can to protect the lands we love
Cle Elum Sledhead (SAWS Chairman) posted a Thank You to SWOL right after we received the check from them. It was mentioned that SAWS was the only organization that SWOL heard from upon receiving the donation.Thats good to hear Christopher!!
I'm glad that the members of this site, through their fees, were able to contribute such a large amount to these organizations!!
Oops, thanks for the clarification!That check was just from member contributions.
We received a letter from the Canadian Avalanche Center as well.
Thanks for all you do Scott.........Thanks everyone for the donations, and for the support. We will do what we can to then help everyone get the word out. BRC developed an auto-letter generator for a petition to the Senate re: CIEDRA, maybe we will look at doing something similar. We have the "petition" from WWA so we can tear the s**t out of that too.
Thanks again all!
Scott, your Idaho SAWS Rep
Probably NOT something we could code directly into the SnoWest Forums itself, BUT....Thanks for all you do Scott.
WE need a auto generator for letters here...anything to make it easier for everyone within the reach of SnoWest to be able to send something in!!
Is this possible Christopher...or anyone else out there who could help build this?
Make it so...No 1. (Capt Picard intimation):usa2:Probably NOT something we could code directly into the SnoWest Forums itself, BUT....
If they can share the source code, there is no reason why we couldn't duplicate it on a webpage outside of the forum but still on our servers.
Lorduss,You know this crap is getting on my nerves, i was brainstorming a plan not long ago on an envior movement towards focusing on the pollution of skis and cross country skiing (and touching heavy into how polluting ski resorts them selfs are in the big picture) Stupid as it sounds, Skis and snowboards as we have known them for a while are non-recyclable and if i recal that base wax is petroleum based, on our side we can actually recycle our sleds completely.
would be nice if we could spin the heads of these idiots to think about there own hobbys instead of ours, might take them away from fighting someone to make them selfs feel good crap, give them a trip back in the self guilt part of it all.
all we ask is to be left alone about this anymore,
