We are a group of close friends with desert driving expertise who decided to create a community for those with the same interests: desert offroading, enjoying our time outside in the natural beauty of the UAE, and enjoying our time with good people and no complications.

Main Goal
Our main goal is to arrange weekly trips and events that are fun, safe, friendly, and family oriented.



Rules:

General Rules

1-Members are all the same regardless of their driving rank, so all members are free to join/lead/manage or be a marshal in any other club. More collective experience will only enhance our experiences together more.

2-Members are welcomed and encourage to create events in the club, including BBQs, social gatherings, and other fun events. Posting offroad trips is restricted to marshals only.

3-Members are invited to contribute to the betterment of our club.

Eligible Voting Members:
Marshals will keep a record of member activity in the marshal forum (http://www.oryx4x4.com/Forum-Marshal). Every time there is a trip or event, the marshals will update the record. The purpose of this is only to keep track of who can vote on topics in our club meetings. Oryx4x4 needs many voices, but only from members who are actively involved in the club on a regular basis.

Quarters
1- January-April
2- May-July
3- August-December


To be an eligible voting member you must come to at least 5 events in a given quarter in order to vote at the quarterly members meeting. If you were not active in this quarter, you can still be active and vote in the next quarter.

Events include offroad trips, social gatherings, club BBQs, club parties, and marshal meetings (only for marshals).


Management:

4- Founder/Owners: There are no founders or owners. Our place is the desert and the desert is for everyone. There is no status in the club except "member," and levels are related only to safety.

5-Club Management Style:
-Members voting on topics and amendments to the guidelines (see General Rules).
-Marshals voting (regarding movement between levels). Inactive marshals will be not be allowed to vote.


Website:

6-Website Administrator: This person maintains the technical aspects of the website but has no special position or authority within the club.


7-Administrative Ability: All marshals have administrative control of the website, except who ask to remove it then we will remove it.

8-Organization and Access to Website Forums:
- Reading the website: All members can read all areas of the website.
For transparency, there are no private/secret forums.

9- Posting in the website: Members will be able to post in the forums they are allowed to be active in. (For example, Junior can not post on Senior forums). The purpose of this is to keep the forum organized so that members do not sign up for trips they cannot yet attend.

10-Website Discussions:
-The purpose of the website is to connect our community for organizing trips and other events. We can also share useful information related to our common interests. As needed/requested, topics will be created so that we can share ideas and enjoy the site as a social tool.
-Discussion should avoid topics related to politics or religion.
-Members and their families are from different cultures, religions, and countries. Please be careful about what you are writing here. Sometimes the joking between close friends is easily misinterpreted by others.



Trips:

11-During the trips, trip leaders are fully responsible about their trips, no one should interfere.
All trip leaders became leaders because they have demonstrated that they know what they are doing. This implies a level of trust and experience.

12-The only thing we leave in the desert is our tracks, no waste no littering.


Ranks and Upgrading:

13-Club Driving Levels: The purpose of levels is to keep trips safe, appropriate, and fun for all who attend.

*ItO (Introduction to Oryx)
*Junior Oryx
*Oryx
*senior & Marshal  ( Senior can lead partially/ Marshals can lead by them self) 

14-Upgrading:
-There are specific trips for the purpose of upgrading members.
-Upgrading does not happen in the website.
-Marshals will vote and talk directly to members during the trips.
-Marshals will check members required equipment during the upgrade trip.
-Upgrades are based on a rubric that clearly outlines the skills and equipment required at each level. (http://www.oryx4x4.com/Thread-Introducti...ipment-etc )


15- Upgrading Requirements:
-There is no minimum number of trips required for an upgrade.
-Upgrades are based purely on consistently demonstrated skills during upgrade trips (see guidelines).
-To be upgraded from one level to the next, the member should have the required equipment (see guidelines) which will also be checked during the upgrade trips.


Safety:
16-Handling safety concerns is at the discretion of the marshal leading a trip.
Marshals can choose to not include someone in their trip for different reasons, including, but not limited to:
- seat belts: not enough or not using seat belts
- tie downs: not tying down things in their vehicle
- bringing extremely young babies (check with the marshal about what age is appropriate for a given trip)
- not having suitable recovery points on their vehicle
- not having proper equipment for the trip level

This is for the fun and safety of all members.
