November NewsletterNovember 7th, 2011 


 Where do I begin? There is so much going on this month. Our new officers (2012) will be voted on at our next general meeting (tonight), our Thanksgiving Club ride is only a few weeks away, the jerseys have been recieved and are ready to send out, the Christmas party is only  month away and we have already started planning for the 25th anniversary Meltdown next June! You cant ever get bored when your a part of the RUTS family!

 Many have asked this year about how they can "give" to RUTS, so we have added a "donation" feature to the website. Check out the "members" section and you will find a couple of option for your family to give a tax deductable one time donation or a monthly offering to RUTS. If you and your family have been ministered to by this club and want to give back monitarily, now you can. Check out the new page here..

November Club Ride 

Anderson Dry Lake, Johnson Valley OHV.  

will find RUTS heading out to Anderson Dry Lake. Danny and Caprice Zierau will trail boss this three-day weekend club ride. There are no races in the area this weekend, as there has been in the past, so there will be lots of room to roam! Last years November club ride was coated just not he North side of South Anderson Dry Lake and Danny set up a poker run ride into the hills on the other side of Camp Rock road. We will post directions and exact location the week prior to the club ride. Come out and join us for some great fall riding! Camp will likely be marked in on Thursday, but check the message board or website for exact locations prior to heading out. Please don't forget to bring some firewood with you. If you have questions about any activities or the location, email Danny and Caprice at

Scott BurnettNotes from the Prez: 
 There is a new video on the website that shares what RUTS is all about. We are making a second one that focuses on the RACING aspect of the club and we need the help of some of our racers. Next time you see Bible Bob Nielson hanging out at PITS, or video taping the start of a race, help him to get some good race footage. You can also help by telling him "on camera" what RUTS means to you. The racers video should be a great tool we can use to recruit more racers into the club! Thanks Bob for your work on the current video!
 The officers are dicussing the location of our current general meetings (Buena Park) and are considering a new location for some of the meetings in the Inland Empire. We would move some of the meetings in hopes of attracting some of our High Dessert racing members. If you know a location or idea, please let one of the officers know. Our current plan is to have 3 "General Meetings" in 2012 somewhere in Riverside County. A large turnout will pave the way for more RUTS meetings in the I.E.
 I have not been able to compile the motolympics results yet, but look for them in the NEXT newsletter. Thank you to all who particpated and especially to those who served with thier time. The highlight of the weekend for many was the newest event, the Mens Hill Climb Challenge. It was fun watching 20+ men climb a rather steep sandy hill, with 15 making it and 7 of them NOT. The final HEAD to HEAD race for the top 6 was especially fun to watch.
 Congratulation to the winner, Abe Bauman, who also won the mens 36+ division. A final congrats to Nate Scott who took home the overall points winner trophy for the second year in a row. We might have to change the rules next year or Nate may win it again! Way to go Nate Scott, you are growing up to be one heck of a good rider, just like your daddy Tim.
 Dont miss our next two club rides. Thanksgiving weekend and New Years Weekend. Both are goign to be alot of fun, the Burnett Family looks forward to seeing you there!
