Making sure your rig is ready for the trail is a crucial element in reducing risk. Each trail ride, your certified Trail Guide Ambassadors will require you to look over your vehicle. It is the drivers responsibility to make sure everything on their rig is in proper working order, if a Trail Guide or another driver identifies something on a vehicle that could be a cause of possible risk while on the ride, a driver may be asked to no longer participate.
Our intent is to host quality, family-friendly events where everyone has fun and works together. We're not out here to wreck your vehicle or put you or your rig at risk. If you are not comfortable with something out on the trail, it is your responsibility to find a different line, trail or to turn around. Trail Guides, while knowledgeable, are not responsible for your vehicle or your passengers. With many rides being done every weekend, it's important for all of us to take safety seriously so we can all hit the trails again and again.
Why a waiver?
The Road Legal 4WD Association works with many landowners and as such, many of them require our chapters to carry a landowner liability policy. Without this policy, we wouldn't have very many private trails or even public events that require said insurance. The carriers we work with for this very special type of policy require that everyone who enjoys the trails with us sign a waiver releasing folks from liability. Insurance is a major key to keep programs like ours alive and we're very fortunate to have secured the needed protections to keep trails and events going year after year.
For your convenience, we've attached both waivers so you can review and print these for events. We ask that if you get them signed without a Trail Guide as a witness, to do it in front of a notary public (available at most banks some government buildings).
Legal Guardian and Minors
Youth who wish to join us at events must have a minor waiver signed by the legal parent(s) or guardian. A signature from a friend, parents friend, or a permission note will not be accepted. If you plan to bring youth that are not yours, print this waiver in color (both pages) and have the parent(s) or legal guardian(s) sign this with a notary public (we'll look for the stamp). If the minor waiver is not filled out correctly, you'll be asked to leave.
PLEASE PRINT WAIVER IN COLOR AS SOME STATES INDICATE THAT BEING NEEDED
If you have any questions, please post your comments below and we'll be here to answer them. Thank you for your cooperation!
Minor Waiver Below, again print in color!

I don't want to send out invites to wardens, tourism, law makers if we don't have the rigs to show them the park. If I send out the invites, then I can't change the date and I need to make that call very soon. If we had 10 rigs for Friday morning that should be good for this first one...Post is under moderationStream item published successfully. Item will now be visible on your stream.

Elizabeth Reilly said she can get some bigger equipment to the park for Saturday and Sunday so we can brush, saw, drag, etc. I'd like to try and get the stone off the side of the trail on the trails to make them slow speed crawling trails and start filling in the massive water areas along the perimeter trail. If we have any heavy equipment operators ( Louis Kelly / Dick Schmidt are you available?), maybe we look at helping operate the machines? Obviously, we can't have people without experience running these, but I think we have a fair amount of people in our group who do that for a living.
I may have the first set of signs done for this event so we can replace our temp signs from Oct. and get some very nice signs up there that have the levels, names, intersections etc. Those test signs were a big home run.
While much of the park is fairly well-kept, there are some areas we can fix and help maintain to keep building our relationships with the village, the rangers, and show we want to help make this the first true OHV park in Wisconsin!Post is under moderationStream item published successfully.
