Presidents' Message

  On July 8, 2000 our Club will participate with the Forest Service on their National Trails Day.  We will be working on the Reeder Canyon Trail by Joe's Valley Reservoir.  The trail has not had much maintenance but definitely needs it.  We will be working on water bars, dead falls and water drainage.  This is a real neat trail to ride and it really needs our help!  We plan to meet at the Reeder Canyon Trailhead at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday.. Bring your own lunch, a shovel, pick or pulaski and plan on having a great day.
  Dinner will be provided by the Club at Grassy Flat by the Grassy Flat Reservoir at 5:30  p.m.
You will need to rsvp by July 6 so we can order food. Please call Mary at 435/384-2264 or myself at 435/381-2493 and leave a message.
  As a club, we are working with the various land managers to keep our riding privileges.  The hot issue is the lawsuit that SUWA has to close our trails in the Sids Mountain Wilderness Study Area that we worked on so hard to get signed.
  To keep abreast of new developments and issues send your e-mail address to kirtj@etv.net so that you can be on the Club mailing list.  The Club's new web site is seuohvclub.org. Check it out!
Thank you very much for your support!  See you on July 8.

How Things are Working

A Compliment:
  At the Access Management Team Meeting last week, Dick Mannis(BLM), told Mark H. Williams that he was impressed with how responsibly  people were riding on the open routes in the Sid's Mountain WSA.  Mannis had been in the field and was favorable impressed with evidence of responsible use without resource degradation

A Fine
   On Easter weekend, an ATV rider was caught riding out-of-bounds by Utah Resources Law Enforcement.  The ATV rider was ticketed.  Rather than just pay the fine, the rider turned up in the Emery County Justice Court.  He was eventually found to be guilty and fined $100.  OUCH!!!  If the violation had been ticketed by BLM personnel, the fine would have been in the neighborhood of $150.

  It is only through legitimate enforcement the WSA rules that we will be able to maintain the four open rights of way through the Sid's Mountain Wilderness Study Area.

  I'm afraid that it has really come to this.

A Reward
  The SEUOHV Club is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the vandals who burned and damaged the Buckhorn Draw pictograph site.
