SFWDA Embraces New Membership Concepts

 The Southern Four Wheel Drive Association Board of Directors recently approved sweeping changes to the membership structure as we re-position ourselves to be a relevant voice for all off-road enthusiast. As we prepare for Dixie Run 28, September 25-28, 2014, we are including the new Individual Membership as a NET $0 cost to all registrants. As proposed, the new Individual Membership will be $10 with offsetting discounts to Dixie Run and TrailFest. We have offset this $10 cost with an immediate discount to Dixie Run 28. Therefore there is no additional costs to an existing SFWDA member and we will continue to strive to build a broader membership through attendance at the event. Additionally all members can now share in these savings with our business partners. Note this link:
