Sharetrails.Org/BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) would like to thank the Mile-Hi Jeep Club (MHJC) of Colorado for bringing 440 new members into Sharetrails.Org/BRC fold from their own membership. Sharetrails.Org/BRC relies on its organizational members to be important components of the OHV land use team. In order to compete with anti-OHV interests we need both organizations and their individual members to join us in the fight for access. Preservationist groups have memberships in the millions while we have memberships in the thousands. As long as that imbalance stands, victories such as Glamis are more difficult to come by.

POCATELLO, ID (August 16, 2016) – Sharetrails.Org/BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) would like to thank the Mile-Hi Jeep Club (MHJC) of Colorado for bringing 440 new members into Sharetrails.Org/BRC fold from their own membership.

Sharetrails.Org/BRC relies on its organizational members to be important components of the OHV land use team. In order to compete with anti-OHV interests we need both organizations and their individual members to join us in the fight for access. Preservationist groups have memberships in the millions while we have memberships in the thousands. As long as that imbalance stands, victories such as Glamis are more difficult to come by.

We wish to commend MHJC for their commitment to righting this imbalance and stepping up to initiate productive change. Over four-hundred new members in a single batch is a huge boost in pro-access numbers. We invite all of our member organizations to emulate their model and help us get local club members into the national fold as well.

Membership in Sharetrails.Org/BRC in no way detracts from the role of the parent organizational member. Their role is still the same as it has always been. But when the individual members of a club join a national organization like Sharetrails.Org/BRC, they gain a voice defending recreational access across the country, pushing back against closure efforts and trends that might not affect them immediately, but can be almost unstoppable by the time they do. In return, these new members also provide Sharetrails.Org/BRC with the numbers we need to do what we do: work tirelessly to keep YOUR recreation areas open.
