March TD News -- 2017 Trail Ideas

Bill Ratcliff

The Tahoe Donner 4 Wheelers had a lot of fun this past year. To make sure we do the same this coming year, we put together a group of members to form the Trail Committee, headed by Dean Eppley. This committee met at Northwood’s Clubhouse recently and put together a great calendar of trail runs and events for the coming year.

Below is a list of the Club activities we have planned. To see more details about these events and trail runs, you can visit our web site or check out our Facebook page. The trail runs this year are a good mix of easy trails that are great for beginners and first timers as well as challenging runs for the more experienced members with capable rigs.

Along with these trail runs and events, we are planning some specific educational sessions that will help the inexperienced drivers learn how best to navigate terrain and also some education about how to equip your vehicle to be able to take on more challenging trails.

Here is our Calendar for 2017. The dates are subject to change depending on weather and conditions. We also do what we call “Flash Runs”, which are spur of the moment runs. You have to be a member to get the details of these runs and events, so consider joining us for the fun!
