Since quite a few of us ARFCOMers are also Dirt Bike, ATV & Jeep 4X4 enthusiasts I thought it would be prudent to post the following article. We all need to go to Olympia on Feb 3rd to let the Libtards know that we are in fact the rightfull owners of the King's forest. Hopefully we will get their attention.
ORV RALLY (excerpts from January 2006 www.soundrider .com)
BE THERE FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3rd 2006, NOON – 2PM, CAPITOL BUILDING STEPS, OLYMPIA
Be a part of the massive ORV Rally in Olympia, on the Capitol Building steps, on Friday, February 3, from noon to 2 pm!!! Instead of filling Olympia with our rigs and toys to demonstrate our economic impact, we are going to fill it with ORV people. Carpooling will accomplish this – and it is a must as parking is being limited. Cram every ORV buddy you can into your car! We can fill the steps, the lawn, the courtyard, and beyond. We can easily be the biggest crowd our legislators have ever seen, and when we roar on February 3, the whole town will hear us. Parking will be at Deschutes Parkway by the lake, protected by the WSP, and shuttles will be provided to get us over to the Capitol Building (it’s only a half mile).
The second big push for this rally is to book each legislator’s calendar solid all day before and after the noon to 2 pm slot, with voting constituents ready to talk about our issues. This is just as important as making a big splash on the Capitol steps! It’s easy, use www.apps.leg.wa.gov/districtfinder to quickly identify your legislators from your district, and access their private official email address. Use that to make an appointment with them for Rally Day!
We have plenty of issues, and talking point papers will be widely available before and during the rally, to use in your meetings with legislators, should a member of the press ask you questions, or just to be fully informed yourself:
We’ll use the same staging points as last year, wear your gear, bring the whole family, kids too!
Rally Staging Points:
Cycle Barn - Smokey Point
RMC - Renton
Tacoma Mall - Tacoma
South Sound Honda- Olympia
Mason County - Shelton Denny's
If you want to make your own signs, the official slogans are:
Open Areas = Quiet Neighborhoods
OHV Use Is Not A Crime
OHV Use Builds Strong Families
DNR Land Is Not "The King's Forest"
It costs to make the signs and other rally materials. If you would like to make a donation, contact Rally Treasurer Brett Wise at (425) 226-4320 x.207 or BWise@rentonmotorcycles.com. For more information on the Rally, to volunteer, etc., contact Ed Bushnell at 425-931-3332 or Angie Marek at 253-537-3172.
If you love ORV recreation, you’ve got to find a way to be there! We need to win the current battles, for sure, but one day we’re going to win this war! We’ll see you on the Capitol Building steps February 3rd!

Man, if I can get there, I'll bring a good sign. I'm deep into atvs. Just don't know about my schedule for that week yet.
DNR land does not belong to the Citizens of the State of Washington, It belongs to a Public Trust.....
Don't you all pay attention.
The problem is that the Libtards don't trust the public to be allowed to venture into the King's forest that is controled by the public trust!
I still get a backache every time I look at the quad.....
Whiskey, if your back hurts, you're not going FAST ENOUGH!
