Established in 1966, the Poly Goats Four Wheel Drive Club is one of the oldest clubs still active at Cal Poly SLO. But when it comes down to it, we're really just a group of friends out looking for a good time. Here's what we're all about:
We hold bi-weekly meetings on Wednesday nights to discuss club happenings and upcoming events. Members almost always have trip reports and pictures to share. We've had guest speakers discuss topics ranging from welding to land closures. Even on nights with nothing major on the agenda, we still meet up and hang out.
We also like to give back to the community. In the last few years the Poly Goats have either organized or participated in cleanups at the Oceano Dunes as well other local spots in SLO county. We've also donated our time and vehicles to other causes. In October 2004, the Poly Goats provided logistical help hauling broken bikes in the Le Pismo Dunes Endurance Beach Race. In April of 2007, we worked the gas pit in the Hi Mountain Dual Sport Ride. We support the community in other random ventures as well (pulling people out, working on trails, etc)
Of course, we also like to wheel. Members lead trips throughout the year, and are always happy to have other drivers and passengers join them. Rocks, snow, or sand, forest, desert, or mountains, we've done it all and keep going back for more. Groups have gone wheeling as nearby as Hollister Hills SVRA and the Oceano Dunes, but longer treks to Moab, Utah and even Baja California have also been done. When winter hits, some Goats like to frolic in the snow, while others prefer to stay dry out at Johnson Valley. And when the snow melts, there's always someone heading to Fordyce and/or the Rubicon.
When it comes to vehicles, the Poly Goats is an equal opportunity club. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join, whether you've got a stock rig, a rock rig, a desert truck, or no rig at all. And if you happen to have a "fixer-upper," well, there's always someone willing to lend a hand on any project you can dream up.
Membership dues are $40/year, which get you two bad-ass Poly Goats vehicle stickers, access to the private forums and photo gallery, and discounts at some local 4-wheeling related retailers. Dues also pay for web site expenses and allow us to throw parties from time to time.
You've heard about us, so come see what all the fuss is really about. We're kind of a big deal...

Come on out for the madness! Meeting this Saturday at the Costco parking lot @12pm. This is a camping trip so bring a tent for friends or prepare to make friends (it gets cold so thick sleeping bags are a good idea... or find another way to warm yourself).
Prepare yourself and your rigs for the brap brap! Whoever lawn darts first wins! Invite all you can -this events for everyone. If you dont have a rig still show up and we'll squeeze you in somewhere!

So this may be a surprise to most all of you but PolyGoats 2015 BeerFest is this Saturday! Its going to be at the RangerDanger/Miley manor from 11am to 7pm. A crisp 10$ dollar bill gets you access to literally as much beer as you can drink... so there's NO EXCUSE not to be there. Bring your own BBQ is a thing prior to the competitions so y'all will have plenty to throw up in one of the designated trash bins ;). Events will likely include: Obstacle course, flip cup, quarters, chuggin, etc.
Make sure to be ready with a team of 4 or you'll be placed in one come Saturday. Team themes are always fun so I expect to see pirates, strippers, mechanics, nudists, potatoes, and onesies. All are welcome to bring a few non-PolyGoat friends as long as they give dollars. Lets get rich.
Bikes, Buses, Ubers, and Piggybacks are all acceptable modes of transportation. Don't show up in your rig expecting to drive it (into a) home after beerfest...
Can't wait to see everyone there! -Ian Thomas

Join us for the next meeting!
WHEN: Wednesday, November 12, 2014 8:00PM
WHERE: 804 Meinecke Ave, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405
Now that we're all back from Hollisterween with broken parts and blurred memories, lets continue the spirit of halloween and explore the wonders of duct tape with our first forty-hands meeting of the year. We will be discussing what happened and who broke the most at Hollister in addition to the top 10. We will also be discussing and voting on our final t-shirt design so we can get them made ASAP.
We will also be going over our annual New Years trip to Johnson Valley in Southern California. This is surely a trip you won't want to miss. Bonfires and brews under the desert night sky.
-Michael Danger Gonzalez
PS. Don't forget to pay for Hollister if you haven't already. Due-paying members get a $5 discount.
PPS. Some low beach chairs were left at Hollister, tell me the colors and quantities and they're yours.
