"Based upon the three sample letters it appears to me that he is only requesting a single letter from fr4x4, not from each member of the club."
Brant has always said he will take letters from everyone individually - just put which local club you are a member of. The more letters the better....
But what you say is true, and since we are not a structured club with membership and organizational requirements in the same sense of many other clubs he works with, and we don't have chosen leaders or officials or representatives....I am not comfortable writing letters in representation of the entire club. Although in this specific case related to our adopt a trail USFS partnership, I don't think there is any issue if I did, I get solicitations for various letters of support and whatnot a few times a year. I try to post them up on the forum when they do and let each individual decide what they think is important....On the flip side, because we are a loose group of wheelers and not a structured club, we probably do not have as much voice when it comes to influencing local trail issues or topics. In some ways, this is an issue that I would like to see the group address...but maybe its just not possible given our (lack of) organizational structure.
FWIW - I will be writing a letter today 'as a member and adopt a trail contact for FR4x4' following one of his examples.
