Imperial Irrigation District has closed and locked the gate on the canal road going from the Dune Buggy Flats Area to 5 mile drop. The roads in between the old canal and the operating canal have been blocked off.
The reasons given are the damage it causes to their road and liability issues.
They will be locking the gate at highway 78 and the canal too. The drops will remain open.

Jagged Extreme is putting on this event. Last year it was called Rhino Crash but with more UTV's now available, they have changed the name to Jagged Crash.
Last year Jagged Extreme gave ASA a check for $10,000 from raffling off items at the event. This year Jagged Extreme has worked out a deal with Polaris and is raffling off a custom RZR, with the proceeds going to the ASA. Contact them for tickets or information about this event. www.jaggedx.com
Recently, representatives of ASA, United Desert Gateway (UDG) and the Off-Road Business Association (ORBA) participated in the Sheriff's Summit hosted by Bill Woody, BLM Director of Law Enforcement and Security. The summit provides an opportunity for Woody to encourage partnership opportunities with local enforcement agencies that share jurisdiction on BLM lands.Their presentations focused on partnership building at the Imperial Sand Dunes. Discussion topics included the funding required to assure the timely completion of the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Management Plan (RAMP) and the status of the ASA Peirson's milk vetch (PMV) delisting petition. Several Congressmen offered to send letters to the Secretary of Interior encouraging the use of reliable scientific evidence in the PMV delisting decision. Full details are coming in the January ASA Newsletter.
