Landuse Tour Open to the Public: Join Del & Stacie Albright on a landuse, trail-saving adventure!

MOKELUMNE HILL, CA (October 12, 2012) -- Businesses, partners and off-road enthusiasts are invited to join Blue Ribbon Coalition's Del & Stacie Albright for a fun convoy, dedicated to trail access awareness bringing customers and businesses together in the spirit of landuse.  The tour begins with the annual meeting of the North American Motorized Recreation Council (NAMRC), and the SEMA show in Las Vegas, NV; next up is the 32nd annual Hump n Bump in Logandale, NV, followed by a few days exploring Death Valley, ending with Panamint Valley Days hosted by the Calif. Assoc. of 4Wheel Drive Clubs!

The TAP Tour embodies key components of the BlueRibbon Coalition Mission - to provide leadership in responsible recreation and empower members to secure, protect and expand recreational access.

You are invited to jump in for all or part of the tour.  The Tour motto is: we will NOT be "tapped" out of our trail access!  Our goal is to use this Tour to provide a forum for businesses, clubs, individuals and land use professionals to share a connection and exchange strategies for a positive future in off-road recreation, while building support for organized recreation.

Additional adventure stops and area orientations may be included as Tour planning continues.  Businesses will be showcased and everyone involved will be supporting landuse just by being there (for all or part).

Support landuse; have fun; hang with off-road businesses and enjoy campfire stories that will be unequaled!  Evening sessions will include landuse seminars, membership building motivational speeches, leadership tips, and vendor showcasing with tech tips as appropriate.  Several off-road 4x4 clubs will be joining us as we travel along.  In between the organized events, the rest of this Tour will be nothing too structured; just fun tagging along with each other and special invites to dinners, meetings, factory tours, trail cleanups and more. All we ask is that you support landuse and responsible trail access to be part of our Tour.

RSVP to Del Albright (del@delalbright.com) or on Facebook even if you only want to keep up with the fun and plans.  Facebook page and RSVP can be done here:
