A Message from the President


 

One of the newest projects from the Grand Mesa Jeep Club is the "21 Road Toad". The Jeep Club has adopted the Toad after finding out that not only had the Toad found it's way to the Threatened Species status, but the status was keeping the Club from adopting 21 road. In 2001 the Toad was placed on the threatened species list but no one did anything for the Toad.  With closure of the road a possibility under the next RMP, the Jeep Club Has decided to adopt the toad, and take care of it if we can.  The first step is to educate the public about the toad, and let people know what they can do to not bother the toad while visiting 21 road.   This will require some informational materials at trail heads, and in the BLM office, as well as some news items.  The second step is to protect the critical areas from not only people, but from flash floods.  The third step is to improve the toad's habitat, and possibly expand it.   All of these things will require funding.  So the Jeep Club is selling 21 Road Toad stickers to make money to carry out this project.   The Club itself will volunteer all the labor required for this project, and the Club has bought and paid for the first two printings of the stickers, leaving 100 % profit from the sales, to go directly to this project.  See "21 Road Toad" on Facebook.

About the Grand Mesa Jeep Club


The Grand Mesa Jeep Club, incorporated in 1962, is the second oldest Jeep club in Colorado. Currently we have approximately 50 active members. It is an organization of four wheel drive vehicle owners who strive to promote the three “R’s” of four-wheeling:

  • Recreation for the family
  • Respect for other land users’ rights
  • Responsibility for protecting the environment

What goes on at a GMJC Meeting?
Meetings address current and future club activities including trips and social functions. Periodically, guest speakers address the membership about land use issues, vehicle and product information, and community issues.

Club Activities
Four-wheel drive trips (day and overnight) happen on a monthly basis, camping, trail building and maintenance, BBQs, community service projects, annual Show n’ Shine/Swap Meet.

Dues
$50.00 per year. New Members receive vehicle safety and maintenance information, trail ratings, club regulations, vehicle decal, and the monthly GMJC Newsletter.

Club Inquiries/Guests
Individuals interested in joining the club may be placed on an “inquiry” mailing list for three months. During this time they may attend meetings and monthly trips as guests of the club. To apply to be a member, click here.

Vehicle Information
Members drive a number of different vehicle types; everything from stock to modified. Trail ratings are provided before each trip. It is recommended that each vehicle have front and rear tow hooks, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, and a “CB” radio.
