Interested to be part of the family?
Blacksheep 4WD Club is out hitting the trails every month. We're in the mountains, the rocks, over to the dunes, at the OHV park. Every month is a different location with different adventures. We also hold a monthly club meeting that is open to the public. In this meeting we take care of any current business (upcoming events, new member applications), discuss upcoming runs, talk about last months run and generally enjoy a meal and refreshments centered around the outdoors and off-roading.
The first step in becoming a part of the Blacksheep family is getting to know the group. That means getting out on the trail with us, and sharing a meal and talking about club activities. Our Club Bylaws (which you can read for yourself below) state that to be eligible for membership you must attend 3 club runs and 3 club meetings in a year. It's kind of the way you get to find out if you fit in, if you like doing the things we like doing. If you're interested in all the details you can look at Article 3 in the Bylaws.
Our club runs typically are held the third Saturday of every month and our meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month. Our meetings are at 7PM at Goodtimes Pizza in Palo Pedro California. We encourage those attending to purchase a meal and refreshments to support our local business. Hope we see you there or on the trail.

Who is Cal4Wheel? What do they do?
California Four Wheel Drive Association, Inc. Since 1959, our non-profit organization has actively promoted the advancement of vehicle-oriented outdoor recreation. We are the largest organization of this type in California and represent owners of all makes and models of 4WD vehicles, as well as non-owners who support responsible vehicle-oriented recreation.
HELPING 4 WHEELERS
We maintain a full-time office in Sacramento. Our staff and volunteers work closely with legislators and land use managers to provide input, influence, expertise, and manpower to keep lands open to 4WD vehicle access. Many successful battles have been waged and won to keep trails open all over the state. We keep our members informed about important issues and changing laws through our bimonthly magazine, In Gear, and regular email updates.
Members enjoy association-sponsored events all year round. These events cover every type of terrain in every corner of the state. Whether you are interested in extremely challenging "hard rock" trails for the experienced enthusiast, or milder runs for the new four-wheeler, we have several events just for you. Many of our member clubs also sponsor monthly runs open to all.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Our members are active in conservation projects throughout California. Projects, which are coordinated with local agencies, can range from tree planting to removing junk cars from remote areas, from closing off entrances of hazardous mine shafts to repairing trail damage. We have received national recognition by winning "Take Pride in California" awards, and "Volunteers For Public Lands" national awards. Many clubs also have Adopt-A-Trails that they maintain.
