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.

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.

recreation occurs all over the country on all sorts of terrains. Many
lucky OHV recreationists will have the opportunity to experience riding
on trails in heavily wooded areas, areas with serious exposure in
mountainous areas or in open plains. Others yet will have the
opportunity to ride on dunes or through the desert. Each type of area
has its unique safety concerns – this article focuses on desert safety.
NOHVCC recently spoke with Brian Puckett who is a paramedic and leads search and rescue operations for the Bureau of Land Management’s El Centro Field Office in California, which manages the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area. Brian leads a team of five permanent staff who are bolstered with seasonal help during the busy winter season. The team responds to 400 calls a year and deal with a vast range of injuries. Brian said, “Everything from splinter removal to serious traumatic injuries – we see it all.”

Please fill in the brief survey found here
to help NOHVCC better understand which retailers OHV enthusiasts are
most likely to patronize. Any personal information will be confidential
as only aggregated data will be utilized. The purpose of collecting
this information is to better understand how and where OHV enthusiasts
as a group engage in the marketplace. This, in turn, will help NOHVCC
better identify potential corporate partners and sponsors.
