We've pasted Shirley's email below. Please take a minute to read the alert, take action and then pass it along to friends, family and riding buddies.

QUARTZSITE

Friday, January 24, 2014

7pm,    Quartzsite Alliance Church   720 Desert View

If you enjoy spending time in Quartzsite during the winter months, and you ride your ATV or off road vehicle during that time, then you must attend the ALAA meeting.

The NEPA plan for La Posa is already in progress. It has been commented on, and now the results of those decisions are coming. If you didn't have a chance to see the maps and comment, you will learn about them here.

We will have John MacDonald, Field Manager, BLM, Yuma, AZ with us to speak to this issue.

In addition, we will have a staff member, Penny Pew, from Congressman Gosar's office (R. 4th District, AZ) in attendance.

We urge you to attend and bring a friend.

Rockhounds & Off road enthusiasts must step up and attend or all is lost.

Shirley Leeson, ALAA President
