sample letter, maybe change it up a little to make it your own;

Dear (your legislator here),

My name is (your name here), a member of (your club here) that belongs to the Northeast Association of 4WD Clubs (NEA) and I am writing to register support for HB349 : AN ACT relative to OHRV operation of certain 4-wheel drive vehicles on trails within Jericho Mountain state park.

The NEA is a regional umbrella organization consisting of 27 member clubs representing over 1,200 full size four wheel drive enthusiasts throughout the Northeast. We were founded under the direction of Retired Major Tim Acerno of the NH Fish and Game in 1999 and incorporated within the state of New Hampshire in 2001. We have representation on the NH STAC and involvement in many towns in NH.

The families we serve enjoy the natural beauty that New Hampshire offers and passage of the bill would only help increase tourism related revenue from within our member clubs. Please support HB349.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Sincerely,

(your name and contact info here)

:hello: Spoke with Chris Gamache and HB 349 passed the committee 17-2 :hello:

There was an amendment placed on the bill.....first there was a concern that "tanks" or skidders using the trails :lol:

Also that that the Trail Bureau would be given 3 years to identify, fund, and develop 4x4 trails on the property

From previous meetings I had with Trails Bureau, an area has already been identified.

I didn't have a lot of time to speak with Chris as he was on the road but I will speak with him more tomorrow :up:
