1. DOWNHILL RACER TARA LLANES NEEDS YOUR HELP!

Tara Llanes is a local pro rider recently incurred a spinal chord injury that left her paralyzed from the waist down. She was injured as a result of a crash during the Jeep King of the Mountain series in Colorado. Tara is a special human and needs the help of our community. Please help by participating in a fundraiser to be held on Saturday, October 13th to raise money for her rehab and living expenses.

The fundraiser will be held from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Heritage Park in Fountain Valley. The event cost is $50, which includes a t-shirt and Team Llanes bracelet.

Bracelets, tees, raffle tickets and more will also be on sale at the event.
If you cannot attend the event but would like to purchase t-shirts and bracelets, please email teamllanes@yahoo.com . Food and drink will be available for a small donation.

If you would like to participate or contribute make your personal check, cashier’s check or money order to Team Llanes. Mail your payment (include your name, t-shirt size, email address and phone number) to Team Llanes,
1145 Roswell #311 Long Beach, Calif. 90804.

In an effort to maximize the donations without over-ordering shirts and bracelets they will be giving out on a first come first serve basis.

2. VISION QUEST AND COUNTING COUP EVENTS SELL OUT IN RECORD TIME!

This year the Pow Wow events sold out in record time with the Counting Coup selling out in three days and the Vision Quest selling out in one week. We have waiting lists for both events and are in the process of seeking permission from the Forest Service to add 100 more positions to the Counting Coup.

We were so overwhelmed by how quickly the Pow Wow events sold out that to make it easy on us we are going to open registration for our next two 2008 events, “The Traverse” and the Toad Festival in late October and early November respectively so as to not be buried processing applications.

Thank you all for your support of our events and advocacy!
