Legislative Officer: Bob Adams –
PHOIENIX TRLS. WORKSHOP (NOHVCC): I was impressed by the close to home riding opportunities of a metropolitan area more than twice the size of Vegas. I was also impressed by the number and enthusiasm of volunteers who step up to keep those areas open and helped establish them in the first place. Course resources I can share are at, https://www.dropbox.com/sh/vkr8oovhl00s2fd/AAASUrH9HCIg2-R4DgmrKiEia?dl=0. These files will be available until 4/12/18. Download them for your library. They help us better understand the BLM’s point of view and how to express our point of view in their terms.
FIGHTING WHERE YOU RIDE,from the American Motorcyclist March magazine, page 33. Change is the norm. Our future depends on our stepping up to make change work for us. Riders are stepping up across the nation. The more of us that step up the better the chancegovernments work for us.
OHV COMMISSION GRANTS: Logandale based PIC, Mesquite based Kokopelli ATV Club, Carson Valley based Pine Nuts Trails. Assoc.,and NOHVCC were among the list of 2018 OHV grant recipients.New grant opportunities coming up byWhite Pine County’s extending Silver StateTrailnorth to Humboldt counties. Humboldt County will likely to soon signto extending the trail further north. Grant dollars go to orgs. that clearly define goals and objectives andwrite them into detailed work plans. What are MRAN’s goals? What projects are we willing to make commitments to, to make happen?
SRP LIBRARY:Having accurate databases came up at Phoenix. We’ve discussed the benefits of a library many times over many years. Clubs have sent courses, but not the SRPs. The SRPs are essential to verifying approved routes.

We talk about things as if our talking about them will make them happen. But most of us don’t even do the easy thingswe can do from home in 20 minutes to help get what we want. Who sent comments this year supporting MRAN’s position on the TTR (Tonopah Test Range) expansion and the Southern Nevada BLM Resource Mgmt. Plan?Getting what we want takes all of us doing our part. That’s a lesson our adversaries learned long ago. And it’s why we keep going back to the table every few years to keep what’s left. MC orgs across our country are stepping up. I hope it doesn’t take having our backs against the wall to do it. On a positive note, thank you Joe Amey for stepping up. Let’s support Joe’s efforts taking use from users to stakeholders in the proposed Jean SRMA (Special Rec. Mgmt. Area).
