WOHVA Update February '14
Every month WOHVA provides our members and other motorized trail recreation advocates with this short synopsis of WOHVA's efforts to assure that environmentally responsible OHV recreational opportunities are expanded here the Badger State.
February 22nd WOHVA hosted the Spring Trail Meeting at Royal St. Patrick's Golf Links in Wrightstown, WI. The WOHVA Trail Coordinators with members and prospective members to discuss plans for WOVHA trails days and WOHVA events being planned for 2014. Presentations by Head Trail Coordinator John Lewins and CEO Dan Bergin covered, safety, dates, procedures, WORVPI updates and well as updates regarding AB369- WOHVA's pending OHV sticker legislation.
In 2014 WOHVA has worked to boost corporate sponsorship to assist with reaching our goals an upholding the mission statement. Each monthly update I would like to spotlight one of our new partners. RSP, host of the spring trail meeting is owned by WOHVA members and has committed in 2014 to continuing the partnership started in 2013. Royal St. Patrick's Golf Links is Appleton and Green Bay's best conditioned golf course. Conveniently located along Hwy 41 in Wrightstown, Wisconsin. This challenging, well manicured, championship layout has great greens and beautiful fairways. Royal St. Patrick's is a public golf course adjoined by golf course lots and the Royal St. Patrick's residential community. In addition to the very unique Links style golf course, Royal St. Patrick's boasts the Crosswind Sports Bar and Grille and delicious Friday Night Fish Fry. Crosswind, with its plantation style building, is a wonderful location for Weddings, Banquets, Meeting Space and Parties of every variety. www.royalstpatricks.com

Ice Racing 2014
Happy New Year! The end of 2013 and the start of 2014 have been great for making ICE! Once again the Extreme Offroaders of Oshkosh, WI will be hitting the ice Feb 1st and Feb 8th to put man and machine up against the elements and the clock.
Feb 1 racing will start at noon in Oshkosh, WI on Millers Bay, Lake Winnebago in conjunction with the Otter Street Fisheree. Registration starts at 10:30 am and a driver’s meeting will be held at 11:50am.
Feb 8 time will be the same in Neenah, WI. Races will be held just offshore of the Payne’s Point Hook and Spear Fishing Clubhouse on County Road A North of Oshkosh and South of Breezewood in Neenah.
We have interest in a 4x4 Side by Side UTV class this year and if we get enough registrations it will happen. It is excellent to see new interest and more racers are always welcome. Belts and helmets will be required.
Other classes will include Short, Medium and Long wheel base 4x4 vehicles, two wheel drive classes, studded 2x4, studded 4x4, and a women’s open class. It takes three vehicles to make a class. Cash pay outs to the top three drivers.
Pictures and results will be posted as fast as possible.
WORVPI Need your Help !
Dear Off-Road enthusiasts: The weather forecast for the next few days is not very pleasant, however, the prospects for an Off-Road Park in Forest County are encouraging. Many of you have already written letters of support, but we are asking for another wave of encouragement to the local press, elected officials, and DNR.
The prospect for the park has never been brighter, but we need your voice of support to be heard! Please consider writing a brief email of support. Here is an example:
We/I support the Off-Road Park proposed in Forest County. The sooner that park is built, the sooner we can join our Off-Road friends and spend our free time—and money—in Northern Wisconsin.
Please email your brief support letter, with your name, address, and phone number to:
The Wisconsin Off-Highway Vehicle Association exists for the sole purpose of proactively assuring that public and private off-highway motorized vehicular recreational opportunities are expanded in Wisconsin for safe use by this and future generations
