7 days to Save The Hammers

Check out this great photo created by Will Gentile at Heavymetal Concepts.



More than 2000 people are currently involved in a campaign  to educate our elected officials on what is happening in Johnson Valley and what it means to us.  Tons of people called Feinstein's office and emailed her District Director yesterday.

Today is day 2 of 7. We are asking everyone to call or email Kevin McCarthy's office today.

Tuesday August 7th, 2012 Please call:
Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA 22) or
District Director Vince Fong Bakersfield 661-327-3611 fax 661-637-0867 VINCE.FONG@MAIL.HOUSE.GOV

Thanks to everyone who called Feinstein's office yesterday.

We still have a chance of winning this. With the budget cuts in the military, if we can make elected officials understand what is happening in Johnson Valley we have a chance of them not approving the Marines request for BLM's land.

Thanks for your support.

YES... A OHV National Park Designation for Johnson Valley? MAYBE...

...


...

Wait a second, there is no OHV National Parks in this world!!!

Actually, there may very well be if we get a lucky break in the next couple of weeks!

Many of us already know that Jeff Knoll went before congress recently to pitch the Bartlett Amendment to save Johnson Valley. During that process, things went a bit farther than most of us ever dreamed they could. The Bartlett Amendment was not only added to a major appropriations bill (which is great), but it also includes language that will turn Johnson Valley into an OHV National Park...a tract of land designated as an OHV Open area with a designation that can only be altered by an act of congress.

This whole thing goes to vote in the next couple of weeks but if you have not recognized it already, our government runs on favors and lobbyists. OHV is not able to call in any favors of the Federal Government at this point so we need the backing of a few lobbyists. That costs money.

We need to step up and donate money RIGHT NOW!

"Save The Hammers" has been raising money for a long time now and those dollars have been carefully and wisely spent getting us this far...we are now on the brink of success! However, there is not enough money left in the fund so we need an emergency infusion of cash.

PLEASE, we've only got a couple of weeks but the lobbyists need time to actually lobby on our behalf, so that means we've got just a week to raise the bulk of what is needed. Falken Tire generously offered a donation match, dollar-for-dollar, up to $5,000 for the money raised in the next week...that is AWESOME and appreciated!

However, I've seen the PBB step up and in less than 24 hours raise over $20,000 for a family in need. This is our lifestyle in need here...so much rides on this...we need to go over-the-top and beyond what we've done before!

ORBA and Save The Hammers is trying to raise over $30k...WE CAN DO THAT...

WHY SHOULD WE??? Because if we get one OHV area with federal designation, then that will lead to other opportunities as there is precedence. If you want to protect lands for OHV use, then this is one of the biggest steps we've taken in decades, if not forever.

Pirates, LETS DO THIS!

Make your donations at:

http://savethehammers.org/sth/

And please, dig a bit deeper than normal for this...we do not want to say we came up underfunded on such a major opportunity!

 let's make a difference for Johnson Valley and going forward for other OHV areas!
