POCATELLO, ID (March 1) -- The BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) Griffin King of the Hammers pledge drive with the 4405 Land Use Buggy was a huge success! Travis Carpenter, 4405 driver, and his "4405 Land Use Team" did a tremendous job of negotiating 98 miles of this extremely gnarly off-road race-a-thon for access before the transmission linkage melted and halted progress. Pledge donations were sent to BRC from all over the country. THANK you to all the folks who made this happen.

BRC's Ambassador, Del Albright, led the land use efforts at King of the Hammers (KOH), with a Land Use Seminar on Tuesday evening and the GenRight Best Prepared Trail Rig Team Challenge on Wednesday evening in front of a roaring crowd. "Team Degenerates" won the Challenge and walked away with arms full of prizes and gift certificates from many businesses at KOH.

BlueRibbon Coalition sends a special thank you to the KOH staff and volunteers who helped make this race a land use fund-raising effort that will benefit many trails for years to come. It could not have been nearly as successful without the help of the following businesses/vendors who support land use and access.
