Kirby, the President, called the meeting to order at 7:30 p.m. SCARR was held the weekend of April 11 th – 14 th in Gilmer, Texas. Although there was a good turnout, Kirby stated it seemed smaller than usual, possibly because of the storms. There were probably a dozen Land Rovers from the Houston area. Saturday activities were limited, but after the storms ended, Lucky 8 came by with donuts for everyone. The members agreed it was a really fun time and all of the trucks made it back to Houston. Pictures were shared of SCARR.

Sergio reported that several members drove up to Gilmer the weekend of April 26 th – April 28 th . Sergio reported there was a lot of erosion on the trails and they were not in the best shape, but they were dry. Gilmer was not too crowded. Pictures were shared of the Gilmer trip.
 
Mark reported that prior to SCARR, the organizers tried to organize a trail clearing in Gilmer, but attendance was low.
