Welcome to 2009 



It’s a new year and hope­fully a good one. Gas prices are down (knock on wood) and hopefully the economy will improve soon. We have our first African-American Presi­dent who promises change. We held our annual club meeting on January 10.  Thank you Charlie and Mary for letting us invade your home for this event.  We have come up with our schedule of rides for the year and I hope eve­ryone is excited to get out and ride again. It’s been a long, cold and snowy winter already this year and its only mid-January. We’re going to start out our year in Hurricane at the Tri-State Jamboree March 11-14. Deadline for Registration is Febru­ary 22. You can go to http://www.atvutah.com/tristatejam/ and register.  Don’t forget to put Path­finderzz in the Group/Organization section of the registration form.  The cost of the Jamboree is $100.00 per person but includes breakfast all three days and one dutch oven dinner, an ice cream social and a poker run among other things.  This is a great way for us to support the Tri-State Club who has led us in the past in that area.  This year I would like to challenge all of you to become more aware of land issues that will be affecting the trails we ride. The time has come to quit sitting on the side­lines. There are environ­mentalist lobbies all over trying to turn Utah into a wilderness haven. Your first opportunity to aid in keeping our trails open to us is on February 6 Friday from 12-1 pm at the State Capital Build­ing. I will be there with our club banners and I need some support and help from you to hold those banners.  Please check out the included Flyer about this event and let me know if you can come. Parking is lim­ited and so I would like to car pool if possible. Please try to take the time off and join us at the Capital. Here’s to another great year.

Club Dues and Video


It’s that time again. Time to pay club dues.  The club fee is still $25.00 per family.  You can mail them along with any updated info to: Pathfinderzz ATV Club 610 E. 780 N. Pleasant Grove UT 84062 As I said in the club meeting, the 2007 Video is ready to be burned to dvd.  I ran into a little problem.  It is 3 discs long. Since we rode less this year and I don’t have pictures and video for all of the rides, the 2008 dvd should only be 1 disc. So I am planning on combining them and making it a 4 disc set. Instead of $15 for 2007 and $15 for 2008 the price will be $25 for both.  If you have paid the $15 for 2007 you only need to pay an addi­tional $10 for the additional discs.  If you have questions about this let me know.  I will have the dvd sets available at the rally at the Capital on the 6th. If you have any questions let me know.
