4th Annual Whiskey Falls
Trail Appreciation Day
Iron Telephone Staging Area
Saturday June 4, 2016
Well if you were on the valley floor on Saturday June 4, 2016 you know it was HOT HOT HOT, but if you were at our 4th Annual Whiskey Falls Trail Appreciation Day above North Fork California it was a pleasant 81° with a slight breeze. The weather and conditions in the forest just could not have been any better and a good time was had by all who attended. We had over 80 people show up for a cleanup of the area and a great BBQ and free raffle afterwards.
Our mission for the day was to have a lot of fun driving, and riding around the area and do some light maintenance on the road and trail system and remove as much of the unsightly trash left lying around. The Stewards of the Sierra provided all of the tools and supplies necessary to accomplish this great day of giving back to the forest and helping to improve and keep your OHV areas clean and open. At the end of the day the Stewards hosted a free BBQ lunch and our sponsors hosted a free table full of swag we gave away.
I want to take a minute and Thank everyone who came out and made this a great event and showed their support to help keep the Sierra National Forest open and in shape for all to use. A special Thank You goes out to everyone who helped setup and tear down and the girls who ran our Registration Table and our cooks who made an AWESOME BBQ Lunch for everyone to enjoy at the end of the day.
The Stewards collected a pickup load full of thrash that was left lying around the forest and hauled it off to the dump. A BIG Thank You to Summer for hauling it to the North Fork transfer station and getting rid of it. Way to go girl.
Also a BIG THANK YOU to all of our Sponsors Mike at 4 Wheel Parts, Joe at Clawson’s Motor Sports, Jacob at Cycle Gear, Bob at Madera Honda Suzuki, Kyle at Motion Pro, Craig at SRT, Dawn at Wicked Good Snacks, and Gary at Wilsons Motorcycles. These are the sponsors who tirelessly give and provide the Swag to make our raffle tables a huge success for everyone in attendance. Everyone who came out to the event left with something from the raffle table and a smile on their face. Please make it a point to visit every one of our sponsors and personally THANK them for the support they give the Stewards. Without their help we would not be the successful organization we are today.
Also a big Thank You to Dean Gould Forest Supervisor, Denise Tolmie Bass Lake District Ranger, Linda McPhail and Ted Webb OHV Planers for the help they provide by having bathrooms available at the event and the crews that were present to lend a hand.
