Come out and play at Hi Desert Roundup

Memorial Day weekend marks the start of summer.  For the California Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs (CA4WDC), it is also the time for the 41st Annual Hi Desert Round Up (HDR).  This year’s event will be held at the new location on Anderson Dry Lake in north Johnson Valley.   HDR is a family event with guided trail rides on Saturday to locations in the Cougar Buttes and the world famous Hammer Trails.

HDR is an important fundraiser for the Association and, in particular, for those in the South District.  Since the South District seems to be the hot bed of land use issues as of late, more money is spent in the South District than any other district. 

CA4WDC provides representation at local, state and federal levels through Resources Consultants, Lobbyists, and legal issues in partnership with BlueRibbon Coalition.  Association fundraisers like HDR allow CA4WDC to promote the responsible use of public land, prevent legislation that would restrict off highway vehicle use, and to encourage state and federal agencies to develop new areas and trails.  In addition to all the association does, it also provides for low cost event insurance for member clubs that have an event of their own.

Along with the Saturday guided trail rides, there will be a best-equipped vehicle game on Saturday evening. This game is open to all comers.  Get a group of your friends and stuff everything you can think of in the vehicle you choose.  That means everything because you never know what will be asked for.  Some of the more common items asked for are; u-joint, fan belt, first aid kit, gas receipt, cold beer (usually because the announcer is thirsty).

Sunday will feature vehicle games for the adults and, in the afternoon, games for the kids. The most popular game for the kids is the stick and can game.  This is a kid’s version of the adult game of the same name.  Another version of an adult game is the potato scoop, where the kids have to follow a course and collect potatoes and put them into a bucket. On Sunday evening there will be a kids raffle as well as an adult raffle.

Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandis (1916-1939) was quoted as saying, “Sunshine is the best disinfect”.  So, turn off your smart phone, put your Blackberry, your Strawberry, or whatever kind of berry you have in a drawer, and come to the 41st Hi Desert Round up.  At HDR, you will be able to enjoy some of the Mojave Desert’s disinfecting sunshine.
