It seems as if we may be at the end of an era. Our land use agreement will not be renewed again this year at the Hunt Club. The land owner has decided to develop the property and we will need to vacate.
Having no alternative location and huge legislative disadvantages, it seems we will not have a place to call home this Spring, or possibly ever again.
I’d like to thank all of our members for supporting the family tradition of off road recreation and helping to keep our son Thomas’ memory alive. Through our scholarship program, we have been able to donate to deserving men, women and children for education and self improvement. We started LIRTC on Thomas’ 10th anniversary and we are celebrating his 20th on March 27th, 2018, with all our members memories.
In addition to this, we have also been able to expand awareness of our sport. We have ushered in new generations of riders and educated them about safety, and respecting the environment we share with the other creatures of the forest as well as other user groups.
We have proven year after year that multiple user groups can coexist and steward a single property to the mutual benefit of all. This something the environmentalists and legislators thought could not be done. But we did it …Together.
Only through your generosity were we able to make such a big impact in a few short years. We have seen singles become couples and couples become families, children became adults. It has been our sincerest honor to be a part of your lives and watch you all grow.
In closing, if anyone knows of a property owner who is willing to discuss a land use arrangement, please send their contact information our way.
Thank you for your support,
Tom, Denise, Bob, Ursula, John and the rest of the crew.
