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...

SURPRISE. It's that every other Wednesday time... which means its TIME FOR ANOTHER MEETING.
So first and foremost:
PG Club Meeting
Gbrothers Smokehouse (885 Foothill)
8pm, Wed, Feb 26
Agenda: Snow trip Top 10, T-Shirts, Koozies, Weekend Hack-n-Fab with Fred Williams of 4-Wheel Magazine, and finally, Scavenger Hunt.
Snow Trip happened. I believe everyone has paid, but if you haven't, I'll find you.
Finally got the quote for T-shirts and Sweatshirts. Sweatshirts are available in two styles: Pullover Hoodie or Zip up hoodie. You'll be able to choose what you want in the order form that will go live tonight.
Speaking of that, heres the order form link: http://bit.do/PolyGoatsOrders
This weekend at his Atascadero shop, we'll be helping Fred Williams of 4 Wheel Offroad Magazine destroy a motorhome with the intent of turning it into an awesome buggy. More details like timing, rides, and goodies will be sent when they're finalized. If you want the chance to swing an axe at a motorhome for youtube stardom, this is your chance. Any levels of technical expertise are welcome.
Scavenger hunt is Saturday (March 1) night after our first day of helping Fred. Prepare your bodies. Consult last week's email if you forgot how to read the forums or last week's email.

I'm most certainly not getting this meeting reminder out late Tuesday night because I'm a master procrastinator...
But it is that time again... MEETING TIME!
What: Yet another Poly Goats Meeting
Where: 804 Meinecke Ave, SLO
When: Wednesday 11/20 @ 8PM
On the agenda:
Hollister-ween Recap/Top 10
JV New Years Info (http://www.polygoats.com/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=5787)
PG Vinyl decals will be for sale to everyone in a limited quantity because a bunch of you bastards requested them and never paid for them. As always, shirts and sweatshirts are available as well.
T-shirt Design thread is looking pretty solid. Check it out for updates on our new apparel designs for this year, and definitely add more if you're interested in contributing. (http://www.polygoats.com/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=5811)
Related to that, we're also in the process of ordering a bunch of PG magnetic koozies that hold your beverage of choice AND STICK TO THE SIDE OF A TRUCK! The most baller.
Obligatory: If you haven't paid dues yet, it would be really cool of you to do so. It gets you access to the website, and keeps you from getting banhammered if you're already on there.
