8th Annual OHV Management Workshop:

"A Tactical Approach to Now and the Future"

in Salida, Colorado

This Special Workshop is FREE For Enthusiasts with FREE Lodging for qualified club reps.

Sponsored by the Colorado Off Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO)

This year's workshop will take a more tactical, "on the ground" approach with an emphasis on sustainability of existing designated trail systems and building toward future growth of; "Life After The First MVUM". A combined audience of Land Management Agency personnel and Volunteer User Organizations and Recreational Enthusiasts can sit down one on one in a relaxed, educational forum and discuss local issues, and develop the needed contacts to interact closely on the status and implementation of Designated OHV Routes by Travel Management Planning in that area.

Included will be educational discussions of OHV Management Techniques, Volunteer Stewardship, issues and general principles of

enhanced social and environmental monitoring, maintenance and management of sustainable motorized trails.

This will be coupled with the need to address easily understood companion maps and effective signage

This collaborative effort will help to build camaraderie and a sense of understanding among agencies and different user groups.

Hello Bill:
Would it be a good thing if some of the RS club members went to this work shop? Is this more faces the better, with more in the club trained? What are your thoughts?

05-27-2008, 11:01 AM
Totally agreed. As schedules allow.

Well I signed up for this event, joined Cohvco(individual member) and signed up to get trained on the Trail Crew Leader, Maintenance and Construction Skills Training on thursday. By becoming a individual member I got the scholarship for the room and the event costs waived(Bill M also passed blessing on me representing Rising Sun). I will be taking my 80 as part of the event is out in the woods. Can't wait to see what a hard trail is:D. Any how I am looking forward to this to see what can come out of talk for the club and the future of all this stuff. Funny I got the blessing for all this and the wife and I talked about going away for the 4th weekend and the marketing firm called and sets a event up for the 5th of july in Attica Indiana:mad:. Any how camping is waiting until after the training with Cohvco in July. Funny how life works:lmao:
I will try to take good notes and post info when I know. Later Robbie
