Post by toms » Thu Dec 10, 2009 6:00 pm

We would like to encourage you to sign up for the Tread Lightly! Tread Trainer Certification Clinic January 09th, 2010. This is a one day course. There is a minimal fee of $25 to cover class materials and handouts. It requires a commitment to teaching and spreading the word about Tread Lightly! Principles and outdoor ethics.

There will be a second clinic on Feb 19th, 2010 in Sacramento, CA the day before the California Association of 4-Wheel Drive Clubs hold its annual meeting. So if you are attending the Annual meeting, sign up for that clinic and come a day early.

You can find out more details on line at http://www.4x4training.com/TrainingClinics/Tread.html. And register on line at http://4x4training.com/calendar/calendar.php#Tread. You must pre-register. You do not need a vehicle for this clinic. It is about an outdoor ethic and Tread Lightly!. We will not be working on skills related to the many motorized and mechanized outdoor sports.

For more information you can call Tom Severin at 310-374-8047.

Please forward this to your club members.

Regards,
Tom Severin & Jim Conkle

It is all class room. It is not a class to learn or turn up your 4WD skills but how to bring the Tread Lightly message to others.

Tom,

I was hoping that we'd get to practice some of those 27 point turns on tight trails :D

Actually I think the Tread Lightly is good to get out to people to help us all be responsible and keep our remaining areas open.
