Discus s ion followed but no a ction was taken as several s crambles-throwing cl ubs including Nobl e (Orange County) and Ham (Spor tsmen) reported they had never had any difficul ty with com plying with the rule of holding an inspection . Several mi nor subjects were dis cu s s ed includin g that of keeping the desert clean. Trash Is always a problem and not everyone seems to be r esponsible enough to pick up after themselves. As VicePresident Lynn Wineland poin ted out, " Keep our desert clean, It' s the only one we have."
