Treasurers Report. (By John Scribner)


Introductions:  New Members and guests. Welcome to new members:

Presidents report on recent Club activities.

  • Camp-out Sand Hills, was great and thanks to Bain we had some great rides.
  • Overnight rides to Cannonville via North Swale, and return Saturday.
  • Vehicle road trip to Bicknell, Tickaboo and Escalante.
  • Since the ATV Club Secretary resigned for personal family issues, I have received all the ATV Club documents. The membership list has been updated. Thank-you cards sent to the ATV Club sponsors and supporters. Email to all Fun Run participant resulted in lots of compliments towards our Club and friendly membership and how they enjoyed the rides provided.
  • Mark Habbeshaw asked about obtaining ATV Club flags that would be used on our machines. I did get a quote from Kevin Jones up in Richfield. Is there any interest to follow-up on this? We do have a quote for flags available.
  • Letter written in support of the Panguitch Rough Riders, regarding the County Commission closing a county road through some private property. Our ATV Club was in support of the Panguitch ATV Club.
  • Letter sent to Fishlake NF in support of the Paiute Trail Committee for some trail route improvements and some 50” to 60” improvements

 

  • The Fun Run participants and Fun Run workers were asked for suggestions to Improve our next Fun Run. Responses will be logged for future review. They were thanked for volunteering, no comments received.

For the record: Motion minutes from May 17, 2018 meeting.

From the Agenda a Motion from the Chair was made at the May meeting. It was a motion to show appreciation to those who volunteered for the 2018 Fun Run. To conduct a celebration or gathering and review the 2018 Fun Run, as to what was done right and what was done wrong. It was seconded by Phil Cloughesy. Funds from the Fun Run would be used to pay for this event taken from the revenues of the successful 2018 Fun Run. The idea was about exchanging ideas to make the next Fun Run better.

Comments or questions: ATV Club Treasurer Scribner rose to oppose the motion saying he was a representative of all the members of the Club he was opposed using Fun Run proceeds to pay for such an event that benefited only those who volunteered and worked the event. Phil Cloughesy suggested amending the motion to allow the Treasurer to take the needed funds from what ever ATV Club source he wanted. The motion was therefore amended as such. Resulting in much discussion about this motion. A hand vote was taken, and it was close, Betty Herlacher was asked to count hands and determined it was an even tie at 12 for 12 against. The Chair broke the tie with a yes vote in favor of the motion.

Immediately thereafter, 2nd Vice President Scribner made a motion, (non-agenda item) which Chair allowed. Her motion was to declare that ATV Club volunteers do so without expecting rewards and as such should not be rewarded nor should there be such a celebration or meeting that would be paid for by the ATV Club and thus reward only those who volunteered and worked the 2018 Fun Run. (summary non-verbatim)
This motion was seconded by Cindy Romrell, more discussion was received, and the vote was called. Those in favor 14, those opposed 1, the other members remaining at the meeting abstained.

Motion carried: which nullifies the previous motion and creates an ATV Club policy that ATV Club volunteers shall not be rewarded for their efforts on behalf of the ATV Club.

Camp-Out Cancelled.

Firstly; On June 13, the proposed campsite for the scheduled July 11 to 15 Camp-out on the Burr Trail was scouted. At that time, around the noon hour, we found that the campsite is located at around the 6700-foot elevation, and the temperature was 95 degrees. I have concluded that this location in the month of July would be extremely hot during the daytime hours. 

Secondly; There has been no interest expressed in this new camp-out location. Perhaps, in the future this interesting area of the Water Pocket Fold could be explored, best done in the early or latter part of the year. This area was recently removed from the Grand Staircase NM.

Finally; This cancellation will be discussed at the June ATV Club meeting. If there is a member who has other ideas, they will be invited to lead and plan the camp-out and rides.

July 11th to 15th ATV Club Camp-out:Wednesday to Sunday. (CANCELLED)

Trail RV’s to Utah SR 12 continue to Boulder, taking the Burr Trail Road through the Gulch, continuing to a pre-designated camp-site on the Burr Trail. This is a rigorous route to bring in your RV/OHV equipment but a chance to experience the upper benches and canyons of the Waterpocket Fold above Capital Reef. {Pending scouting and obtaining needed camp permits}


Discussion on changing the dates of the Fall Colors Ride from Sept. 25 to 28 to Oct. 2 to 5. This requires changing the White Canyon, SR 95 Camp-out to be moved back one week as well to Oct. 10 to 13.

Regarding the Fall Colors ride the tentative plan is to Stage at Bryce Canyon City riding the Great Western Trail past Pine Lake, over Barney Top, Griffin Top across the Aquarius Plateau to Bicknell, UT for the first night. Day two, ride the Gooseberry Trails of the Fishlake NF to Salina, UT, second night. Day three ride the Paiute Trail across Monroe Mtn. to Circleville third night. Day four ride back to Bryce Canyon city to our vehicles. This ride remains tentative, more maps are on order, we will be checking with the Paiute Trail Committee on 50-inch restrictions on any of these routes. We will insist on receiving RSVP commitments early on from those coming on this popular ride. If there are more than 12 or more units committed to this ride we will consider splitting the group up. Both groups will be taking the same route. As always weather is closely watched during this time of year and becomes a determining factor for going on this ride.


Next meeting July 19, 2018 6:00 PM Rancho’s ATV Club City Park. We will be covering our summer Camp-Out agenda and reporting about our most recent adventures.
