Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 1974 Four-wheel drive group on hand for emergencies Coulee Cruisers Club serves has fun as well By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Staff Writer A little known Lethbndge group over the past 10 to 12 years combined their spet'al brand of recreation and sport with a commitment to help out people who are in tiouble In doing so they have assisted southern Alberta in coping with some venous emergencies The Lethbndge Coulee Cruisers Four- Wheel Drive Jeep while existing primarily to provide organized i ecreational use of the members' unique vehicles has always been quick to donate its services in times of crisis Sometimes a situation arises in which a heel drive is absolutely necessary to help someone out of says Club President John McKenna we're always willing to provide aid and assistance in that event The best example was that big snowstorm in the spring of 1972 Nobody could move without a 4-wheel and had to deliver telephone and electrical people to trouble spots as well as helping out stranded individuals The Coulee Cruisers received a considerable amount of publicity at the time for their and many individuals and organizations donated money in gratitude of their volunteer work Still few people in Lethbndge are aware of the club's existence or its method of operation The organization is open to anyone who owns or has ready access to a 4-wheel drive vehicle It does not necessarily have to be a jeep At there are 45 full members who own and another 45 associate usually wives or girlfriends While there is a special format to obtain anyone is eligible Aside from the requirement of a suitable vehicle membership is not restricted in any way 'We have people from all walks of says 'from lawyers to mechanics First year membership costs with a wife getting an associate membership for an additional dollar After the first the rates drop to five dollars and one dollar respectively The club meets on the first Thursday of every month at 8 00 p m in the Gas Company Auditorium Anyone interested in joining is extended an invitation to attend McKenna stresses that the outfit is a tamilv affair 'We try to include the whole in all of our activities Nothing is restricted to the men alone The women and kids come on our and the ladies have identical events to those of the men in our rallies We even L y to put on soap box derbies for the kids The club goes on a run once a usually up into the mountains somewhere In the an entire weekend may be while winter outings are usually restricted to Sunday We try to go where others and we get to see some beautiful spots that way The Coulee Cruisers are affiliated with similar ogamzations in and at Great and Butte in Montana Each club puts on a rally or two during the with members from the oiher organizations attending Next rally will go next weekend in while Lethbndge will hold its event on the weekend of August 3 4 and 5 In the the local competition has been held west of Kenyon Field on Albert Rollingson's land in the nverbottom this year the site will switch to the Army lease land near Kmp Men's and women's races and obstacle courses as well as open events for both sexes are involved at the in addition to events for the youngsters a large portion of the publicity which the Coulee Cruisers have received in the past has come as a result of their community services in times of need storm in 1972 really put us on the comments McKenna Indeed it for shortly after that the club was invited to become affiliated with the Emergency Measures Organization It is also registered with both the RCMP and City and was recently involved in the simulated disaster exercise in the city With the affiliation to the members ar now reimbursed with a minimal dally salary in any declared emergency The EMO also provides gasoline and gives the Cruisers an operating base Prior to the club members donated their and fuel free of charge This became pretty costly at times For during the '72 each member used about 45 gallons of not to mention vehicle damage But McKenna situations like that you don't think of charging If someone is sick and needs a and you have the only vehicle that can get him you are obligated to help out The Coulee Cruisers feel well qualified to handle almost any situation now after the EMO has provided them with training in rescue operations The majority of members also have St John's Ambulance and have taken courses in first aid In the jeeps now have two-way radios installed This enables them to join forces with the Radio Club in and makes them doubly effective Joe co-ordir.ator of the Emergency Measures has nothing but praise for the Coulee Cruisers are definitely an asset to the especially when our southern Alberta winters get out of hand McKenna indicates that should an emergency the club can spring into action almost immediately for a plane comes down in the mountains or a child is lost in the ten radio equipped trucks could be ready to go within twenty minutes So while it is primarily recreational in the club is not all fun It s lots of hard work in an emergency After a couple of sleepless nights you are just about finished But if people are in we just feel that we have to help out' I'LL TAKE XOU BACK IF TALK ME MORE.
