October 2007 News
The 2007 Arapeen Jamboree was the biggest yet. Fifty riders were hear for their second or third visits.
Two of the guys attending have come every year. Larry Conger and Jim Simpson live on opposite ends of the country, California and Arkansas respectively, and meet here for the fun and comradery.
Along with 50 registered riders, 2 French Canadians, Marc Joinvilie
and France Labonte of Quebec, stopped in for a visit.The two have been on a trip from Canada to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. They rode on Tuesday and Thursday to see the Arapeen before heading off to the Paiute.
Nolan Brooks, owner of Lil' Mule Trailer Company, came and set up a nice display of his custom OHV accessories. He also donated several very nice door prizes. We thank him for his generosity.
Awards night was held on Thursday this year to accommodate Ferron City. Kris Degnan, winner of the Hubcap Award for 2006, was on hand to present the 2007 winner, Jim Gullos, with his award. This award was started when Jim Bereton picked up a hubcap on the ride he was guiding. He decided to award it to the most improved rider of the day.
Mark H Williams, organizer of the jamboree, says it is the size that is most desirable. Not too big, and just big enough. Many of the riders who return every year say it is much better and friendlier than the bigger ones. They come back for the nice people and the great scenery.
October's ride will be the Beckwith Plateau on October 13. This will be a great ride. Everyone is to meet on the East side of SR-6 at Woodside. You must be ready to ride at 9:30 A.M. Bring your lunch and a jacket, it may be cool during the morning hours. Lee Swasey will be the guide. for more information call Lee at 384-2664.

School Trust Lands Easement Project Update
When the SEUOHV Club made the request, the Emery County Commissioners began to investigate the purchase of the easements for the poker ride trail and the trail from the Pageant site to Huntington. As the request is moving through the process, SITLA has announced the easements will be ready in 2-3 months. As per our agreement, the club will be responsible for installing the signage for these trails. Randall Stilson will make the arrangements for the signage project.
