This has gotten out of control.

Spectators will be charged to park anywhere on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land, new for the 2021 BlueWater Parker “425” Presented by Jimco Racing, as well as required to comply with the same COVID-19 policies as required of race participants and pit crews. This includes the mandatory wearing of masks on BLM land during the event.

Great, so now the desert will be littered with masks...
F'n retarded thinking. Be outside, be distanced...but wear a mask?
Is BLM officially run by Sierra Club now...pushing an agenda?

Would it be ok to plan a "protest" of the race? Say from a good vantage point? With other like minded "protestors"?

Such bullshit. This crap is such a control issue. It has to be a day we have to stand up for our freedom and not being told what to do. I’m at the Turing point on this shit. Can’t enjoy the things we love to do anymore.

Unfortunately the BLM has always been the sierra club with a badge. Total commies. I’m just curious as to what law they can cite you with? Complete BS for sure.

How much is parking? 10 bucks? All of us have masks in the truck, just throw it around your neck and enjoy the day
Don’t let it get under your skin, you went for a fun event it still going to be.

yes it’s bullshit.

I can't see them enforcing this, what i can see is them doing it for show, so they can put on the race.

Bingo. Maybe they HAVE to tell you. But they won’t be driving around with enforcement
It's on their website for a few other popular places, so I'm sure it's just standard these days.

I assume they will charge you as you go up Shea? Its the charge thats fucked. I pay $100 to take pictures on BLM land plus parking.

The mask and covid protocol is just a pony show to quiet CRIT, no one will do it

This aay of thinking is exactly the reason we would become a shut up & comply nation.

Mask required, I dont go. The lack of audience would send a greater message to the masses.

Im sure not going up Shea. I dont have a clue where they will put everything and everyone, plus spectators and campers.

The old 400 days were fun up there, but it was about a 1/5 the size

At least its still on I guess

Dont go to 'show them' show who? All your doing is hurting the sport by not attending
The mask wearing enforcer can care less about the event

You taking a stand at a off road race in the desert accomplishes nothing. Pick your battles. Throw and mask around your neck. Go drink beer.

No way they can enforce any of it. I’d tell them to fuck off and there’s nothing they can do.

The worst thing we could do is not attend. That only hurts the sport and the racers.

The best thing we can do is take a position against these liberal control freak nazi’s and still show support for the sport, the racers, while sending a message to the BLM pukes.

The BLM parking fee seem to be kind of interesting. If you've already paid your off hwy permits and such, would you still get charged?
That's one of those weird deals. In one way, it sucks. One the other hand, during warmer months most of us pay to use a launch ramp and park our trucks and trailers.
Same thing goes though, what will the funds be used for? Will the money be used to fight offroaders and shut down more riding? Or will the funds be used to help those who generated them?

It is better to just pay the BLM and wear your mask.
Do not defy their authority or else they have proven the willingness to shoot your kid in the back.

some of us still remember

FYI

From BITD.

[Important Information] We want to let our racers and fans know that the BlueWater Parker “425” Presented by Jimco Racing is ON despite the recent announcement by the CRIT. Best In The Desert has been working on a contingency plan with the BLM and our other partners from the Town of Parker for over three months in anticipation we would not be able to use CRIT reservation land, and we’re full steam ahead. The new Start/Finish will be on Shea Rd. similar to the traditional start/finish of the historic Parker “400” event. The race will still be three laps but slightly shorter mileage overall, just shy of 400 miles. The event schedule along with the Pre-Fun Run scheduled for January 8th-10th will remain the same. Updated course and pit maps along with other important information will be posted to www.bitd.com over the next few days. Drawing for starting position will be held tomorrow 12/30. We are expecting a great turnout to kick off the 2021 race season!

What are they going to do if you aren't wearing a mask, take away your birthday and send you out to sea? There is no fine for not wearing a mask anywhere from what I've been able to tell. At the most, keep one in the truck, if johnny law shows up, put the mask on, take it off as soon as he leaves.

AFA the parking. Don't pay anything. At worse they'll just write a ticket for the amount of the parking fee. This is what the FS does. Then you can fight it or pay it, your choice.

All of this and BLM has no way of enforcing any of it.

BS charging to use our land that they get paid from our taxes to take care of. Bad enough they take our tax money to patrol us like they are the fun police.
FUCK THEM!

When mass amounts of people dont attend questions start to get asked why. Its a simple concept really. Its called protesting 👍

At a off road race? Nobody in any government agency gives a fuck.
Not attending is not a protest. Just go, mask up. Who cares

We look at things differently, which is fine
Im not stopping my life wearing or not wearing
Life is short

I don't think desert racing was ever set up as a big spectator sport. Im not sure they care that much.

Thats my point. Not going only effects the person not going

Go enjoy it! Wear a mask for 5 minutes. Pay to watch, its the times we live in. Adapt and have fun

KOH is on BLM land and requires you pay a camping permit to be in JV during the event.
If the fee goes to the event to support costs I am OK with it, if the fee goes to BLM then NO
At KOH it helps pay for the permit for the event. Unless something has changed BITD has used participant fees for the permit and there is no camping included.

No, no...On the news, "peaceful protests" include burning businesses and looting. Most of us here aren't "protestors"...at least not by those standards.

So who does the parking money go to?

F the mask mandate

The FN BLM Same place my $100 goes to have the privilege to take a picture on BLM land. THis bullshit is really out of control. Scottsdale now requires a paid pass if you want to take professional pictures in one of the open desert parks.

Dont take a picture and frame it they will hunt you down.

If you don't comply, BLM may not issue a permit for future races. It's blackmail.

No i dont want my money to go to BLM. But what the cost? Where does it go? Does it help to keep more races going?

If its like 10 bucks and that helps the organizations to secure more events then yes im ok paying.
You pay at launch ramps. You pay at glamis, powell. Pismo. Its not going away, but racing sure will

Currently, CRIT is allowing you to gamble your entire life savings away at their Blue Water casino but you can not take your grandson fishing....
Whats the damn deal with CRIT ? The way they’re running the hotel and they’re stupid rules with the launch ramp & marina.
