Due to State and Federal laws, all motorcars must be equipped with a US Forest Service approved spark arrestor. ( See General Order #6 )

To minimize operating costs, excursion announcements are advertised here on PRO's web site. For members who do not have Internet access, let us know and we will use US mail (or your FAX number) to send you a calendar of planned excursions.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our future excursions.
