POCATELLO, ID (January 28, 2014) --, the "largest off-roading website in the world," has heavily supported landuse and causes like saving the famous Rubicon Trail for over 15 years.  Founded by Lance Clifford, noted off-roader, racer, and access advocate, Pirate4x4.Com boasts a forum membership of nearly 260,000 subscribers.  In that membership, a lot of folks and businesses participate in the "Blue Star" program started by Lance.   For every subscription to the Blue Star Club, Pirate4x4 donates $10 to the BRC to help keep trails open and off-road sports alive.  This incredible support just brought BRC a generous donation of $18,740 from the Blue Star members!

Del Albright, BRC's Director of Operations and Pirate4x4 subscriber since 2001 commented: "I have participated, believed in, and learned from internet forums like for nearly 14 years, and this generous donation just rocked my socks!  BRC can't do what it does for all trails and all sports without the support of great folks like the Blue Star Club of Pirate4x4."
"This is amazing support at a great time for BRC," said John Parrinello ("JP"), BlueRibbon Coalition Board of Directors President. "Partners like help BRC ensure we have a place to do the sports we love."

Thank you, for all you do and for your continued support of landuse and BRC.
