Ok well here is the deal RumpRangerSTX, STRUCK, and myself have been talking and would like to organize a club. It would be something where we would do a scheduled meet at least once a month. Then if you want to meet up with other members inbetween the set once a month meeting/gathering you can. This would help everyone to get to meet each other that are from around our area's. You don't have to have a lifted truck to join or anything its for all RBV's. We would all still be a part of TRS it would just be a side club that is still based from this site. I have already talked with Jim and he gave the go ahead to try and set something like this up. The meetings once a month dont have to be revolved around just wheeling it could be a trail cruise or everyone could meet up at a parking lot and just hang out for a little bit. We could even do the meets all around our area meet up in a different spot every month so this way here everyone is traveling the same distance. There are a lot of 4x4 clubs around that wheel but they are mainly jeep guys so lets something up and start a RBV club if anyone is interested in joining or think this would be a good idea please post up or PM me. we will start off with seeing if anyone is interested then we will go from there... Thanks guys

its still in the works... Right now im in the process of thinking of a group name.. Everyone that reads this your more then welcome to through up a name and we will pick the best ones out of them. I was thinking about setting something up one of these up coming weekends. It will most likely be on a sunday so that STRUCK can tag along. Plus I think sundays are pretty much easier for everyone. It will be pretty much a meet and great with a few trail rides. Im not going to be doing any major wheeling for awhile not with 27inch tall street tires for now but im still up for some trail rides. ssj you going to fuddruckers tonight?

Thanks for making it a sunday. This sunday is the only sunday this month that isnt good for me, all the rest are open.

I would suggest keeping this casual. No member dues. No officers. Don't let people become a member until you and the other members have actually met face to face. You don't want members who are just 'internet' members. The member hosting the run is 'Trail Boss'. Person hosting the event is in charge of the event.

When you start electing officers, accepting dues, and let 'internet' members who don't even show up for meetings vote and have input in the 'clubs' direction, then you're asking for trouble. Remember, that guy you let join online and doesn't even show up, could be some 13 year old kid.

Just my 2-cents.

I also agree with you jim. I think this would just be a great way to put names to faces and find some more local rbv guys to go wheeling or just hang out and bs.

88BII its nothing against the club idea we could still be a club, but maybe just the SJ/CJ chapter of the ranger station.com. Just an idea:dunno:

theres nothing wrong with the casual approach it would still be fun but my own personal opinion from past experiences would be leaning more towards a formal club. my last club involved officers and member dues and monthly meetings and we never had any problems. as far as the membership dues go they are not required especially with the current economy but having officers and the monthly meeting made everything much more organized and everything went alot smoother. it also helps when you attend events as a club to keep everything organized and not so chaotic. im game either way we go but thats just my opinion based on previous experiences.
