Take a look at http://www.mrsc.org/mc/wac/WAC%20352%20%20TITLE/WAC%20352%20... to see the actual WAC which restricts our use of the beaches.

Thanks Morrie, for the link. As stated in other posts all forms of wind powered vehicles are illegal on Washington Beaches. It really doesn't have anything to do with brakes, wheel size, ability, or whatever. The law was made with very little thinking. We have been working very successfully with Parks these last 2 years and will continue until something is resolved. They have gone through some changes, staff have moved to different positions, etc. However I have been in contact these last two years with just about everyone. I have submitted a permit for the weekend of Oct. 21-23. for Grayland. It has not been approved yet, some folks that are in charge this year have to check with those that were in charge last year to verify the number of permits we have used. Didn't want to take my word for it.
I will also submit a permit for Nov as well, probably up near Copalis. I realize these are not ideal tides or days, we are working around Fish and Wildlife and their clam digs. But on the dates that get posted if anyone can make it it would be great. It is more of an "we are still here" and plan on using the beaches when ever we can.
What we can not afford at this time, are folks just going out and seeing what they can get away with. Been there done that.
And as stated earlier, only permitted events are allowed by NAPKA, or NWBKA. This is because as an organization we have insurance and this releases Parks from liability.

I'll keep folks posted when dates come up for the Winter months.

I agree completely, lets not ruin all the groups hard work please!

My inquiry had more to do with other locations no on or near a beach. Parks, school, fields (with permission) Last thing I wanted was to get someones permission and then have authorities show up. Not good for flier or land owner..
