The days program is finalized and we are ready for the Annual Meeting of NHOHVA in Haverhill on April 11 after being revitalized two years ago – are you ready! It is being graciously hosted by the Ammonoosuc ATV Club and the meeting will be at the Horse Meadow Senior Center, 91 Horse Meadow Road North Haverhill New Hampshire.
We have a full day of activities planned and enough not only for club officers, directors, and delegates’ to attend but all club members that are interested in the future of their sport. The day will start off at 9:00 AM with the Annual Meeting. Lots of information about this past years activities and future actives will be shared. In addition to our task force activities and state agency updates a proposal for a club insurance program will be discussed, our Government Relations Advisor Richard M. Parsons will present a legislative update and view into the future, and we will be electing our recommendations to the GIA Advisory Committee, along with the election of the officers for the ensuing year.
Immediately following the Annual Meeting, there will be three (3) breakout sessions:
• Grant in Aid/RTP – having trouble with the what’s, who’s, and where’s – attend this seminar – your life and the trails bureau will be easier!
• All about the trail patrol (NHOHVA received a grant for Trail Patrol vests this past year and we have a very ample supply for all to pick up regardless of numbers needed – no need to share anymore!).
• Training on the operation of the “Youth Safety Simulator” which is available for NHOHVA clubs to borrow. As a results of an RTP Grant, not only has the trailer been spiffed up with a very colorful display tent and refurbished educational materials but every club that gets trained will receive two NHOHVA Polo shirts so that we all look even more professional when we are operating the “Youth Safety Simulator”.
Immediately after lunch, there will be two different types of activities available:
• A trail ride (2/3/4 wheels welcome) from Haverhill to Littleton on the Ammonoosuc Rail Trail – about 30 miles each way
• Trail Bike Usage Task Force Meeting
• Safety Task Force Meeting
• NHOHVA 101 – Important information about how to stay current with the State and Federal Requirements including the IRS!
We sincerely hope that you and your club members will join us on April 11.
