TRS OHV Ambassadors will be hosting this ride. There will be several route options to accommodate various skill levels.
Directions to the Staging Area
Take I-19 south to Exit 40, “Chavez Siding Road”, which is just past the Boarder Patrol Check Point which is on the opposite side of the highway.
Turn right at the stop sign, now you are heading towards the Frontage Road. At the next stop sign, turn right onto the Frontage Road and go about .3 miles north and turn left onto a dirt road. There is a sign at the entrance to this dirt road, the sign says “Hunter Access”, it’s easy to miss this, so go slow.
You will now be on Forest Service Road #684. Drive on this dirt road for about 4 miles. The staging area will be on your right, very obvious.
GPS Coordinates for the Staging Area: 31.6306280, -111.1019341
If you do not want to drive down the 4 miles of dirt road, there is a parking area .1 of a mile after you turn off the Frontage Road and onto the Forest Service Road #684. It will be on your left. You need an Arizona State Trust Land Recreation Permit to park at this parking area.
More details will be posted before the ride, stay tuned.
There Will Be Dust was another fine success for TRS. Almost 70 riders participated in this year’s ride and fund raiser. Nearly the same number attend the dinner meal and raffle prize party.
Comments from the riders indicated they all enjoyed the routes, scenery and weather. There was NOT any dust. Hero dirt everywhere. These conditions only happen a few times a year in our part of the State.
The service, accommodations & atmosphere at both the Long Horn Grill & Saloon (lunch) and the Wild Horse (dinner) restaurants was just right as far as I am concerned. Our raffle party seemed to be a hit, even the restaurant staff came in to buy tickets.
Thanks to all the TRS volunteers, friends and family members for your help! You were great.
TRS’ There Will Be Dust event of Nov. 23, 2019 could not have been possible without the support of several bike shops and other businesses. Please consider patronizing these wonderful folks when you can.

NOHVCC’s webinar series continues– join us on October 1!
Title: Learn How To Host Rides for Veterans
What was intended to be a special, one-day event called the “Thank You For Your Service Ride,” has turned into so much more. NOHVCC Chairman and External Relations Director for the Iowa OHV Association, Dan Kleen, has now organized several veterans’ rides in Iowa (with more to come). This webinar will highlight the rides for veterans in Iowa and provide participants with all the information and tools necessary for clubs across the Country to replicate Iowa’s success.
H.R. 2540, the bipartisan Food and Fuel Consumer Protection Act of 2019, introduced by U.S. Reps. Bill Flores (R-TX) and Peter Welch (D-VT), would cap the volume of ethanol blended into the nation’s fuel supply at 9.7 percent of the total volume of gasoline. The American Motorcyclist Association supports this bill and other efforts to reform the Renewable Fuel Standard.

Who the heck are Penny and Rascal, you ask? Wonder no more!
They are, of course, the stars of NOHVCC’s Adventure Trail. They have been featured on the NOHVCC website, in coloring and activity books, and on full-size posters. Soon they will appear in an interactive Adventure Trail website.
SSSR News 9.17.19: Rosemont asks judge to amend ruling; links to latest news
Dear Friends of SSSR:
You may have seen the recent article Judge is asked to junk ruling that halted Rosemont work in the Sept. 5th edition of the Arizona Daily Star and wondered WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?
Well, it’s all a bit
complicated, but the bottom line is that Hudbay is perhaps trying to
exhaust all possible remedies before filing a full appeal, which they
can still do within 60 days after the judge’s decision comes back on
their recent “Motion to Alter or Amend.”
Here are a few more details on Rosemont’s “Motion to Alter or Amend” filing:
Friday, August 30th, attorneys for Hudbay/Rosemont submitted what is
legally known as a “Motion to Alter or Amend” the Tucson federal court’s
Judgment that was issued on August 2nd. This Judgment formally
implemented the court’s July 31st Order, which had ruled that the Forest
Service’s Record of Decision and Final EIS violated numerous aspects of
federal public land, mining, and environmental law. The court’s
decision and Judgment “vacated,” which means set aside/invalidated, the
ROD and FEIS, such that they no longer can be used by the Forest Service
or any other federal agency in support of approving the Rosemont
August 30th motion asks the court to amend its decision so that the
FEIS should still be in force, and argued that the court exceeded its
jurisdiction in vacating the ROD and FEIS.
for SSSR and the other conservation group plaintiffs, along with
attorneys for the three Tribes, have reviewed Hudbay/Rosemont’s motion
and have found that it is without merit and should be denied by the
court. SSSR’ and the Tribes’ responses to Hudbay/Rosemont’s motion were
initially due to be filed September 13, but the court granted
SSSR/Tribes’ motion to extend that deadline, and now the responses are
due on September 27th. Notably, in its order setting the new response
deadline, the court ruled that Hudbay/Rosemont will not be allowed to
file a reply to SSSR/Tribes’ responses.
is no time limit for Judge Soto to rule on the new motion, but it will
be some time after SSSR/Tribes file their responses on September 27th.
we cannot predict with certainty what Judge Soto will decide, but our
attorneys are confident that, as we noted above, Hudbay/Rosemont’s
motion is without merit.
We’ll know for sure only when Judge Soto makes his decision , sometime after September 27th.
