IE4W Christmas Party:
Holidays greetings to both members and guests…
The IE4W Christmas Party is just around the corner at 6:00 on Saturday December 6 at the Community Center at 6892 Cloverhill Drive in Highland.
The Maldonado elves are all excited about getting the room ready, and Santa will definitely be making a special appearance for the kids. If you’re bringing kids, or intend to sit on Santa’s lap yourself, please be sure to bring a gift for Santa to present, his sleigh is in the shop and he can’t bring them with him.
As before, a gift exchange is optional, if you want to participate, bring your wrapped gift ($50 max value) The party is open to both Members and Guests, there is no charge for members, only $10 per person for guests.
In addition to a great festive evening with friends, the club will be providing smoked ham and turkey, as well as all the gastronomic pot luck accompaniments. Please reply to this message with how many adults and children will be coming from your family, as well as what you plan to bring.
Yucaipa Christmas Parade
The Yucaipa Valley Lions Club 60th Annual Christmas parade will be held on Saturday, December 13th and the IE4W has again been invited to join the festivities. It's a good time, small town parade and the crowds love it when we "stack" all the way down the parade route. This year's theme is "60 Years of Christmas Fun". We decorate our rigs for the holidays and have a great time! Christmas music is encouraged!
Participation in the parade is one of the few "Members only" events during the year, but all family and guests are welcome to attend the breakfast at our house and watch the parade, then come back to the house for the un-decorating party.
Jim and I will again hold a rig decorating breakfast at our home beginning at 8:00 AM. For those who haven't participated or been to our house yet, we are one block away from the parade route at 34228 Avenue E, Yucaipa (92399). We have a pretty large backyard and can squeeze everybody in. Jim will be making his famous breakfast burritos, and there will be other breakfast options available, an update to follow closer to the event.
Check-in time at the parade route is between 9:30 and 11:00 and the parade starts at noon, rain or shine. We will ask for RSVP's closer to the event.
Call me with any questions you may have @ 909-841--9689.

INLAND EMPIRE 4 WHEELRS CLUB CONTRIBUTES $20995 TO CHARITIES
In September, the IE4W Challenge was introduced to Corva, Fast-Aid, and the San Bernardino Adopt a Trail Program. As a result of fundraising efforts by each of the organizations and IE4W’s matching donations, $20995 was contributed to these worthy organizations.
Inland Empire 4 Wheelrs is a 75 member family off road club located in San Bernardino. IE4W has hosted Forest Fest for 17 years, a weekend event in Big Bear that attracts almost 1000 people. The proceeds from the many sponsors and raffle ticket sales enable us to give back to many charitable organizations including Corva, Blue Ribbon Coalition, San Bernardino National Forest Adopt a Trail, Ronald McDonald House, Rubicon Foundation, Pismo Beach, and many others. In addition, IE4W also grants 2 scholarships each year to students that are associated with an offroading family.
Become A Member
Guests are welcome to all events!
We are a family oriented 4 Wheel Drive club formed for the enjoyment and preservation of 4 wheeling. We consist primarily of short wheel based vehicles. We have monthly runs that take us to the Big Bear Mountains or deserts of Barstow and the Salton Sea. We also organize trips to the Rubicon in Lake Tahoe, Moab UT, Parker Arizona and other off-road areas in the Western United States. We are a pro-active club and sponsor the “Big Bear Forest Fest” each year to raise awareness of our National Forest and raise money to keep our access to these public lands open for recreation.
As a member you would be entitled to display the IE4W plaque proudly on your vehicle, wear club apparel, but most of all be part of a growing group of enthusiasts that enjoy responsible use of the great outdoors.
If you have any questions, or need additional information you can email us at email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you on the trail.
