Club Clean-up Challenge Nets Donation to BRC

The 2010 Club challenge participants included extreme 4x4 clubs such as the Pirates of the Rubicon, The Rock Gods, the Nor Cal Night Crawlers, the Sonora Posse, the CWB, and the Nor Cal Rock Zombies.  Each club had five vehicles crawling through a timed course, with the fastest time winning. In keeping with the theme of the event, trail awareness is practiced throughout the competition insuring that competitors stay on designated trails and that no environmental damage is done by any competitors, or spectators. After the competition portion, all clubs then proceed to clean-up the entire area of all waste left by others, leaving it cleaner than they had found it. All participants were given custom printed event “Feed bags” to hang as garbage bags of the back of their vehicles, as well as event T-shirts.

Rock Zombie founding member Rob Cook explains, “This competition has become so successful, that 4x4 clubs have formed just to participate in it. It is our clubs goal is to show that our sport, our lifestyle, is not as harmful to the environment as most people are led to believe.”

This year the Sonora Posse won the challenge, and $600 will be donated to the Blue Ribbon Coalition in their name.

The Nor Cal Rock Zombies (www.rockzombies4x4.com) are one of the most extreme 4x4 clubs in Northern California. Members of the California Association of Four Wheel Drive Clubs, the Rock Zombies have held many fund raisers for land-use, raising literally thousands of dollars for various pro-access organizations.
