So far, it looks like October is going to work best for most people, so, other than Oct 27-28th weekend, due to the Annual Pine Barrens Clean-up on the 28th...we can narrow it down to which weekend is best.
The 20th looks like its ahead so far.
The curriculum involves the training on how TO train, as this is a MASTER Tread Trainer course, IE: We train the trainers...and then those trainers train others with a shorter course.
The focus on our end involves learning how to prevent trail closures, and to champion the rights of off roaders, etc. (Out door enthusiasts, etc..) This is via techniques needed to sway local communities, non-off roaders, to see our side of the story, and, how it benefits THEM to allow the trails to stay open, etc.
So, by having more and more off roaders show respect to the land, so that we are no longer viewed as a bunch of "Hold my beer and watch This!" yahoos...but as responsible citizens with a hobby that can benefit them and their community, we preserve access to trails.
IE: Here's how we roll - and how it can benefit you to have us do it.
There are no prerequisites to TAKE the course, its completely open to any one who wants to make a difference.
I also found that once we have established a base of Master Trainers, we are very eligible for subsequent grants for trail work and other activities that benefit off roading. The grants are typically $500. Some groups use the money to do trail maintenance or lobbying/public relations efforts, etc.
There is also interest by quite a few for the Wharton area down south...and if enough people want a more northern class, RC would be a good spot...and a few have requested RC so far up north.
We will probably have enough people to do both so far.
