Questions: Rides and events

1. What does the ATV Club Bylaws say about ATV Club rides?
The ATV Club Bylaws designate Club Rides for each third Saturday after the Club meeting. These monthly rides may be changed as determined by the Trail Boss.
Complaints of the ride destinations and/or changes made or ride experiences, speed, trail conditions, et el., should be directed to the ATV Club.
2. Riders rules.
Each person is responsible to make sure that the following rider is aware of all turns. Stop and make sure that the following rider knows where you are going. (Look for a hand wave and respond likewise).  If the rider following you does not appear, stop and wait, eventually the entire group will stop. Do not follow too close and moderate your speeds and distances. Please keep pace with the rider ahead of you so as not to slow down the following riders. If you are unsure of your ability ‘stop’ and ask for assistance.  
3. Does the ATV Club conduct Social Events?

Yes, because of member interest, Camp-outs, additional rides, Vehicle/ATV tours, parades, and the annual holiday dinner are scheduled in addition to the third Saturday of the month rides. These events are approved by the membership and presented at Club meetings. Participation is optional, times are subject to change.
4. How does the Club make notifications of rides?

ATV Club rides, campouts and events are posted in a yearly schedule sent out via our up dated, new website, and reminders using our G-Mail, email address list. Updated change notices posted one week before the event if possible. The event schedule will be posted on the ATV Club Website. 
5. Does my ATV need to be "street-legal" to participate in a club ride?

Many areas of our rides do not require ATVs to be street legal. However, the enforcement of related laws tends to be very inconsistent. Riders who choose not to license their ATV for use on public roads must recognize that participating in a club ride will be done at their own risk. The rider is solely responsible for any resulting citations. Please note that some trails may restrict OHV’s wider than 50 or 60 inches. The Club and Trail Boss cannot be responsible if you choose to ride a wider OHV’s and are restricted from certain trails, it is your responsibility to know of these restrictions.
6. Does the ATV Club stage and convoy to the Camp-outs?

No, usually the Camp-out location is posted, and directions given to the members.
7. What are the themed social events all about?

The ATV Club conducts social events on pre-designated dates as requested by the membership. Participation is at the discretion of the member. ATV Club sponsored dinners or other sponsored activities are paid from the ‘Split the Pot’ funds collected at our ATV Club meetings.
8. What are the ATV Club Chapters?

The ATV Club has chapters, The Circle of Friends is comprised of out of state members who visit each year usually in October. We will help this group with guiding them on new and old rides and welcoming them to our meetings.

The Vehicle Road Trip Chapter is comprised of members who schedule and enjoy our vehicle road trips. Trips are usually for several days to interesting locations and staying in motels. Those members who wish to be on the road trip mail list will receive notifications of planned road trips.

Ride conditions vary depending on route conditions. Some rides are rocky and dusty and as such could be rated difficult due to length or conditions. Other rides could be extreme due to weather. Rides are guided to various overlooks and sites.
