Note from the Mudslingers Officers Group

Post by mojavemark » Tue Oct 06, 2009 8:11 pm

The Mid Missouri Mudslingers wants to let everyone know we will be holding a meeting October 17, 2009, 10:00 am in the Cooper Creek {aka deepwater} ridding area parking lot to discuss the grant project that has been completed at the Cooper Creek ORV area {aka deepwater riding area} and the future direction of the club.

This project was started and completed over the last 4 years by a small group of people who put in many untold hours and at some considerable personal financial expense. While we are proud of what we have accomplished, we are also disappointed in the interest shown by the off road community in general about helping to keep our ridding area open. We realize that not everyone can put the time we have on this project due to driving distance, employment and other such issues. But we also know that there are more people out there that can do more to help.

We have been contacted by many people in the past 4 years, and only a handful have shown up at work days, joined the club, help support the club financially or even given any moral support. Those people know who they are, and the club administration would like to take this opportunity to thank them. THANK YOU.

As for the rest of the off road community, it is time to step up and take action. While the grant project "should" ensure the ability for public use of Cooper Creek in the future, there is never any true guarantees. With out more efforts in the future, the ridding area will fall back into the state it was before any one took any interest in it. There is no way only a small handful of people can do this. It will take the effort of a large group.

Also, we feel it is time others put in the effort our small group has to keep Cooper Creek going. Many people use this facility, leaving it to a few to do the work of keeping it going. This is not right. It is time for everyone who uses Cooper Creek to help. With out more involvement from the off road community our club can not continue to be a viable entity. Our small group of volunteers can no longer justify keeping the club going at our expense to help keep Cooper Creek open while a great majority of those who use the facility do nothing to help.

With out our club, there was a real chance that Cooper Creek was going to be closed down permanently. We did loose the north ridding area if you do need an example of what was going on. More people need to become involved with this to ensure that Cooper Creek remains open and continues to see improvement.

If you are interested in helping with the on going project of improving Cooper Creek, attend our meeting on October 17, 2009, 10:00 am at the Cooper Creek ORV parking lot.
