The bills were easy to solve. Print shop for $12.96 for prints. And this year we voted and passed to pay the Blue Ribbon Coalition $100 to the organization and $100 to the Blue Ribbon Coalition attorney. We Thank them for all they do to keep trails open. They helped us, several years ago on the Kirkwood trail. And every year they help out areas that need help keep the land open to the public. Weather it be for OHV, Horses, or just recreation use in general.
For the ride report on the Pittsburgh Landing: The weather was marvulous. Thank you to our Cooks: Dean, Steve, Bob. They kept the hamburgers and hot dogs rolling through so no waiting. There were 63 people signed in and we do think we missed a few that were there. That’s ok. This year’s winner of the 50/50 tickets was a kid that went home with $167. Thank you to everyone that participated.
A few of the other topics that we didn’t have anything to report on were (maybe next meeting when the snow is further back): Fundraiser ideas, Clean up rides, Committee Reports. If you have any ideas or suggestions please bring to the next meeting or email them in. And one of the committee members will bring it.
It’s that time of year when we have to start thinking about insurance. We have to have ideas for rides in order for them to decide on what to charge us. But one thing we will have is officer insurance. That is a must
The last topic for the night is trail work. Yes we know there will be or is alot of brushing to do and on the McComas Trail (Gary Dayle) trail needs trees cut out.
We have not seen or heard of any contracts going out yet. But we will keep a watch.
There is some other news that we will be looking into about cutting trees on the trails. This has to do with cutting trees and removing items when they are in the trail. We have put in an email to Jeremy Harris for answers. Will report back at the next meeting.

This just came in: H129 allows OHVs to operate on (1) city and county roads unless prohibited by local authority, (2) numbered state highways within cities unless prohibited by local authority, and (3) numbered state highways outsides cities where speed is 60 mph or less, but limited to 5 mile distances to connect with trails, parking, services, again unless prohibited by local authority. On public roads OHVs have to travel at posted speed or 45 mph, whichever is less, and OHV must have a licensed operator and insurance
