Attention District 36 Clubs and Promoters LAO officers………

Our 1st annual D36 LAO camp out and trail ride will be held at the Ohl Olson Reserved Campground at the BLM’s Chappie Shasta OHV Area near Redding, CA on the weekend of April 27/28, 2019. 

The event’s team building/educational objective is to enhance communications and relationships between the District 36 LAO and club LAO officers (or club members who want to learn about the LAO position) and share our collective experiences in working with land agency leadership/staff on issues related to casual OHV use, event permitting, collaboration, OHV grants, post wildfire recovery, partnerships, and post subpart B project level travel planning.

Chris Real, President of DPS Technical, will be offering the SAE J1287 96dBA “20-inch” Sound Test Certification Class to D36 club LAO officers and/or club members who perform sound/spark arrester technical inspection at events.   This class will be taught on April 27.  Contact Chris Real directly to register for the class.  Email Chris at – Chris.Real@dpstechnical.com

District 36 LAO ACTION ALERT

Past OHV Public meeting in Yolo County

ACTION REQUESTED – Attend Meeting on Feb. 21 in Woodland

NEW OHV PARK IN YOLO COUNTY?

Over the last 5-6 years, D36 members and other OHVers have been attending public meetings and providing input on the concept of establishing a new OHV park in Yolo County.  Because of your engagement, the county is continuing its efforts to site a new OHV facility that could provide motorized recreation for both casual riding and permitted events.

According to Yolo County, they seek grant funding to prepare a market analysis to ascertain if there is enough community and stakeholder support for OHV opportunities in Yolo County. Second, assuming there is demand and support for OHV opportunities, we will prepare a feasibility study to examine two different scenarios: (1) improving access to existing OHV trail riding opportunities within the unincorporated County; and (2) creating a small-medium sized OHV park in the unincorporated County.

In 2018, the County had OHVers participate in an online survey and the results are linked below:

At the February 21 meeting, county staff will provide an overview of our proposed OHV planning grant application and let the public know how they can stay involved in the process moving forward.

UPDATE – CARNEGIE SVRA SRI CLOSURE – MOTORCYCLE TRAILS STILL OPEN

posted in: D36 News | 0

Update 1-22-2019

Although the temporary closure of the SRI creek crossing has impacted use of the 4×4 Play Area, MX Track, and gravel parking lot, OHVers can still access the Kiln Canyon and SRI Loop trail network south of the closure site via the Los Osos Trail.

As you know, the OHMVR Division was given a court order (due to ongoing litigation) to close off public access across the SRI creek crossing at Carnegie SVRA. Closure became effective on Monday 1-21-2019.

Again, the SVRA is working through the permitting process to restore public access to the affected areas. It is expected the OHVMR Division will provide an official update on this issue at the March 1, 2019 OHMVR Commission meeting.

The closure is not expected to impact the Old Crow HS.

AMA District 36 encourages our members to enjoy the epic trail conditions on routes and areas not affected by the temporary closure.  Also, please respect the temporary closure.  Be assured the District 36 LAO will work with our access partners and OHV Division to resolve this all too important issue.  Stay tuned for future updates.

OFF-ROAD MOTORCYCLISTS CHEER LEGISLATION TO REOPEN CLEAR CREEK

posted in: D36 News | 0

AMA District 36 members can be rightfully proud of the 10-year long fight to reopen Clear Creek to both casual dirt-bike trail use and historic off-road motorcycle competition events such as the Quicksilver Enduro and Wild Boar/Wild Piglet Enduros.

On January 10, 2019, Congressman Panetta introduced H.R. 403 that highlights the decade long battle to create a bipartisan legislative solution to the closure.

This continues to be a Herculean task that is the result of a dedicated team of OHV advocates and supporters at the local, state, and national level.  A special note of thanks goes out to the CA OHV Commission that commissioned an independent risk assessment study which concluded that management and operational strategies could be effectively employed in the area to allow OHV use without exposing the public to unacceptable risks.

Thanks also to our national partners at ARRA, MIC, and AMA that continue to champion the reopening of Clear Creek before Congress and the Administration.
