First I want to thank all those who braved the rain forecast from this past Saturday. Luckily the rain held out till late in the afternoon leaving us 4-5 hours of riding with only a few sprinkles here and there. The park looked great for the guys not having been out to clean up the trails as much as they had wanted to. They had just received their new tractor and attachments which all looked good in that nice new building they have. Thanks to the South Central Dirt Riders for being such great hosts!

During our meeting at KC's, we had discussed a few important topics I wanted to share with you all. It was brought up that with the ATV SAfety Week coming up June 6th-14th, we tap our resources in the legislature to get this recognized across the state of Iowa as well. We will be starting the process with them to get this rolling asap. We feel this is important for the state to bring attention to ATV/OHV safety with the 50k+ machines registered in Iowa. This will also be good exposure for our group in moving forward. We hope this process goes as expected and we will be getting started this week.

The second thing we discussed of importance was the next quarterly meeting and ride July 18th at Gypsum City OHV in Fort Dodge. We decided this would be a great opportunity to get our legislators out to one of the parks for a VIP Ride of sorts. The preliminary plan is to have an invitation sent to all membersof the house and senate in an effort to get as many to join us as we can that afternoon. We plan to still have our meeting that morning before hand and some time to ride as well. Once we have more definite planing done we ask that all members attend as well as invite their area senators and representatives.

Lastly, we had the OHV trailer delivered back to us! As many have seen on our Facebook page the new wrap for the trailer looks great and we are happy to have this back for use. We plan to use this at as many events as we can and had many ideas brought up on how to get the most out of the exposure it creates. Look for that at events in the future!

Look for many updates to come as the riding season picks up and we look forward to seeing everyone at the next meeting and ride July 18th!

OHV Park Closure Alert Page and OHV Park Pages

OHV Park Closure Alert Page and OHV Park Pages

The DNR OHV Program has recently made some changes to the program pages on the web site and with the OHV Reference Guide to make finding OHV-related information easier for enthusiasts.

To find information about OHV rules, regulations, grants, ATV Education, riding in Iowa, and more, go to www.iowadnr.gov/OHV.

A page for each park has been added to the web site to provide riders with information about location, trails, and amenities.  This information can be found at www.iowadnr.gov/OHVparks.

From time to time the OHV parks need to be closed due to wet weather, trail projects, or special events.  A new OHV Park Closure Alert System has been implemented to provide you with up-to-date closure information.  A listing of park closures can be found by going to the link for the parks and opening the menu in the left-hand navigation pane (click on the plus sign).  Each park manager can post real-time closure information about the park.  This is the best tool we have to let riders know about a park's status of closed.  The OHV Park Hotline has been discontinued.

Additionally, the 2014 OHV Reference Guide has QR codes for each park's page and the park closure page for enthusiast convenience.  These codes can be found on pages 26-33.
